I’ve been podcasting this month over at radionot.wordpress.com and you’re invited to listen!
I don’t really want to blog right now. I just noticed it has been exactly three months since I last posted. I re-started drinking a couple weeks after that last post. I was missing the fun, I guess. I think I’m the kind of person who needs a vacation from alcohol periodically. Not sure I want to do it permanently, though. One day at a time! I made my last vow years ago, and it was never to vow again!
I ordered a laser printer (/scanner/copier) for my birthday–coming up soon! It was either that or a modest PA system. The printer was much less expensive. And more immediately practical, I think. The PA would be for LaunchPad shows where there’s no house system, like The Tiny Tavern, and most art galleries. We’ve been using my keyboard amp as our only sound system for years now, and I want to give it some help! But right now I’m more excited about making zines and CD & cassette covers and other printed art objects. Duplex laser printer will be my printing press!
Still no drinking, nearly 2 months. It’s good. It feels like a gift. Totally abusing black coffee, though.
Baseball season is 2.5 weeks old. I re-upped MLB-TV for a second month. I can’t watch the Giants’ live games (stupid blackout restrictions–so I listen to their radio broadcasts, which are excellent), but I’ve been following other teams with some interest. Especially the Astros. They switched leagues last year and are one of the worst teams in the majors. But they have the top-rated farm system and the youngest roster. The future could be quite bright for Houston, indeed. I’ve been enjoying watching them play. Every win is big!
Podcasting hiatus again, it seems. Regarding my “spare” time: I do things when I have the urge to do them. If I keep doing them past that point, they soon lose their magic. That’s why space money is rare, and future supplies are not certain. That’s why I quit the OCF, and the radio station before that. The urge had played out. Negatives were outweighing positives. Voluntary efforts must emerge from passion!
