    Finally pawned a couple of guitars

    I guess it's kind of a rite of passage for guitar players, and it was kind of interesting. It's really going to help me outof a bind, too.

    It just somehow feels like I've hit a new low, though.

    Next, I suppose, I'll be selling plasma.

    Kinda funny, if you think about it. I don't smoke, barely drink at all anymore (excluding JamFest), haven't so much as smoked a joint in about 25 years, but I'm not all that far from ending up in the same place as alcoholics and junkies. But, by god, I'll be the most eloquent motherfucker on skid row. And, with a little refresher, I'll be able to help the other bums with their physics homework.

    Any mic you buy will be perfectly suited to your needs, until you use it long enough to learn that it's not.

    I hope it gets better for you soon.

    My friend, I've been there and am always damn near there. It's a fine line between feast and famine anymore.

    I think that ship has sailed.

    I remember (hey, I actually remember something!) about 30 years ago when I was having one of my existential dilemas, asking a programming prof (who was also a kick-ass bass player - we shared an affection for Chet Baker) who I considered to be a pretty intelligent and observant type and knew me pretty well, what he thought I would be well-suited for as a career.

    His suggestion: a door-to-door vibrator salesman.

    If I were any good at jamming, I might still be broke, but I'd at least be happy.
