- my wife runs a frame shop
Oh yes? Tell me more! Anywhere near Burien?
I have one triptych that I need to frame, but that's the only "fancy" one. The others just need simple matte and frame. I'm paying a local Burien shop about $150/ea to frame a couple of others.
Well, we are sitting directly on the Pacific Ocean. So our climate is incredibly mild. Freezing temperatures are rare here at sea level.
But 45 minutes away, they have 10 feet of snow at the ski resorts, which are 4k feet above sea level.
It really is a heavenly place. I love it here.
Touring was basically a marketing expense for the records. It hopefully broke even, for the majority of bands that were not the Rolling Stones.
That has pretty much flipped in the age of digital distribution, though. There is no more money to be made MAKING music. Instead you make money PLAYING music, and the music itself is an advertisement to come to the live show when I'm in your town.
The world is upside down.
- Can you... think of any WASP songs?
Fuck Like A Beast, of course! (Dear lord, I OWNED that album.)
- Roderick and Anisa mostly build treehouses for a living
Footnote: Sadly, they are divorced. Anisa has a housewares/interior design biz in NYC, and when the treehouse-building schtick took off and spawned TV shows, etc, Roderick kinda went to ground. He now basically builds custom one-offs for the ultra-rich on a bespoke basis. His web site is basically abandoned now.
I got to see their reunion show at Neumos last year, when the bass player was dying of cancer and they needed to raise money for his care. It was glorious. Nothing like an SCM show.
