That’s pretty awesome. I frequently considered de-fretting or refinishing the neck on a fretless, but I never took the plunge. I did however put together a fretless j from parts, which looks and sounds great, but I’ve always have a hard time really connect with it. Weird right? Recently I’ve kinda realized it sits in a mix better than pretty much all my others when recording, so it’s getting some more love recently.

I’m close to a month into the new job and I still like it a lot. Things are going well. Also having no regrets about the move. Last time we moved, we had major remorse about where we ended up. Yet we still stayed there for like 5 years? Honestly this times things seems like an all-around improvement.

Also enjoying city life quite a bit. I wasn’t sure I would actually like living in LA, but it’s pretty cool so far. My drive home takes me past Griffith park, so I can stop and job to Griffith Observatory on my way home when I feel like it. Pretty neat.

Are people still doing Hubski music stuff? I have a track I’ve been thinking about getting people to add to.

I am detecting a theme of moving house/moving work in this Hubski. I also am at week 2 of my new job/week 4 of the new apartment. So far things are so much better than before, but it’s still a new place and the wife and I need to make some local connections.

I’m just loving that everyone here has tacitly accepted the potato sack as a work fixture like a fax machine or coffee maker.

Wednesday again? I think the last one flew by without me even noticing. We've been moving the past week, which has taken all our time and energy, but I am already so glad we are in the new place.

I finished physical therapy for a repetitive stress hand injury a couple weeks ago. At the end of the stretch of therapy, the issue was basically gone, but now that I've been out of it for some time the issue has regressed somewhat :/

Also, I'm hooked on Sylvia Massy's youtube vids

    We could use a 45, just sayin'.

That could be misinterpreted as some kind of pro-Trump reinstatement kinda thing, but I'm pretty sure you're talking about #scificlub.

Well that sounds terrible and I'm sorry it's been that way. I heartily applaud your decision to take no more shit anymore.

    X - This is another times. Father chained me tight. This time I hit the stick out of his hands and made noise. He went away and his face was white. He ran out of my bed place and locked the door. I am not so glad. All day it is cold in here. The chain comes slow out of the wall. And I have a bad anger with mother and father. I will show them. I will do what I did that once. I will screech and laugh loud. I will run on the walls. Last I will hang head down by all my legs and laugh and drip green all over until they are sorry they didn’t be nice to me. If they try to beat me again I’ll hurt them. I will.

This quote: was this from something we did in sci-fi club? I can swear I've read it, and can recall a general outline of the story.

Yeah man, the universe sucks. Second to last day here too. I did keep an eye out for any rapidly dropping gauges on the short remainder of the trip to work (I was almost there). I didn't see any fluids or anything, but we'll see if that's changed when I go back to the car today. Guess I need to get it checked out regardless.

Driving to work today, I see a partially annihilated metal ladder by the side of the freeway and think "somebody messed up bad. Glad I wasn't the one to hit that". A few minutes later, a car to the left and in front of me hits some piece of debris and sends it flying under my car and immediate grinding and scraping ensues. I pull over and manage to dislodge the giant hunk of metal just from reversing. The plastic undercarriage shield is torn up, but I think I got away with no real damage. That was a morning wake-me-up.

From one perspective, I’ve been a glorified customer service person for the last two years. And some customers are the WORST once you tell then you’re not gonna be around much longer. Like one guys has always been high maintenance, but it’s a disproportionate downer to have him suddenly be distastefully resentful about everything.

Also my supervisor has been doing some very unethical, very illegal shit to my coworker. That’s not the reason I decided to leave, but it sure validates all my misgivings.

Really, really looking forward to the move after next week. The new apt and new job are legitimately cool and exciting, so I’m not just looking forward to the escape aspect of the move. I’m very excited about the next few weeks.

Always cool to see the rundown people's gear, 'cause I'm into that. Also, when you say Thompson custom 6-string, is that a Carl Thompson?
