My goal is to get 100 people to listen to this album. I've thought about it a lot and I figure that if I can get 100 people to regularly listen to my work I will consider myself successful. Let's see if pimping myself via the web 2.0 gets the job done or not.
So download it already and I won't nag again. Today.
Aside from that, not a lot is going on 'round our place. I spent Saturday building bunkbeds for The Dude. They're painted and installed in his room as of last night. He spent the night in his new bed and seemed quite pleased. Not bad for a pile of 2x4s, 2x6s, and deck screws. The thing won't fall apart before he's done with them that's for sure. And let this be a lesson to us all: if you shop at IKEA you don't get to use your power tools. What the hell fun is that?
The temperatures have dropped enough for me to breathe and work in the garage. I can get back to building my various instruments. This is a good thing because The Dude loves hanging out in the garage with daddy and it's something that tires him out and gives mommy a rest. It makes my projects overrun their time budgets by roughly 500% but that's the price I pay for having fun.
I read The Old Man and the Sea for the first time this past weekend. I never cared for Hemingway when I was younger but I appreciate his rhythm and economy. I feel like I'm starting to get it. And for the record I do think that the book is really about a man and a fish.
Writing a lot at lunch these days. I guess my NaNoWriMo started early. I can't really afford to put off inspiration when it hits. I'll see if I can do this thing in 30 days anyway. Or maybe by the end of November so I can pass it around to the cool kids who do stuff like this.
No good whorebucks stories of late, but a good one from lunch yesterday. I was forced to eat at Subway because it was the lesser of the present evils. I ordered a meatball sub with nothing on it.
Sandwich Artist™: "You are just like my boyfriend!"
Me: "Your boyfriend is an angry white man who hates his job, drinks bad coffee, and forgets his lunch?"
Sandwich Artist™: "Well, he's not white."
It's rare that I get good give and take. I laughed.
