Oh, I fully acknowledge that it's a silly format. But luckily, it seems like most of the people who buy cassettes don't actually listen to them.
I've done a run of 100 tapes before, and sold them all. I'm really only doing it because it's affordable to produce them (about $250 for 100), and people seem to like them. If anybody on earth still bought CDs anymore, I would print those instead because they're cheaper, but alas.
Didn't get the fancy job I wanted, but things are good at the warehouse. I'm feeling confident and comfortable with my life.
Midway through a few shirts, will probably post them tomorrow.
Album is nearly done, recorded all day yesterday. Looks like this puppy's gonna be out by the end of the month.
I have a temp job that fulfills almost all the requirements I was looking for last week - consistent schedule, paid breaks, near where I live, reasonable pay, and a place to sit, if I want to. It's warehouse work, and I'm pretty good at it.
But more importantly, I got an interview for that job I really fucking wanted. The one over here, the one I thought I was unqualified for. I requested to be the first interview of the day, and they have about 10 other people they're considering for the job.
I don't own a jacket. I don't own a white shirt - though I think I may make one tonight after work. I'm really nervous, but I feel good about the possibility of working a job that I both like and think is important.
Also, the album is unfortunately not coming out on the 15th. Job hunting has been an all-consuming affair. Sometime this month, though.
EDIT: Interview went well! They're doing a second set of interviews next week, should be hearing back this weekend about whether they want me to come in again.
Been on a Bela Fleck/Abigail Washburn kick cause I got a cheap ($20!!) banjo.
For anyone interested in mathy jazz / hip-hop, I cannot recommend this guy's channel enough:
EDIT: and another sweet remix of that song by none other than Pete Rock himself.
Fuck, I hope things start looking up. I usually subsist off of coffee and green tea until I get to work, then eat all my meals for the day there. I actually love cooking, and I hate that food service makes me not want to cook at home anymore.
Best of luck making your way out of job hell - do you live in a city?
Not much to say but that this is just what I needed. Thank you, will send a PM at some point.
Thank you, tng - always appreciated.
Really great advice, and thanks for keeping an ear out - it means a lot. Looks like I'll have plenty of time to take you up on that cup of coffee soon, I'll shoot you a PM whenever I'm planning on coming your way.
