I figured it was only a matter of time until weddings started getting canceled due to Covid-19/Coronavirus concerns. Tonight I found out the wedding I was supposed to DJ in two weeks got postponed. Last Friday the fundraiser I was working got canceled that very same morning. DJ events at this time of year are already slow to begin with. So are the festivals where I sell my shirts. Two events that I was going vend at next month also got canceled this week. I know I shouldn't complain and I will try and remain optimistic, but damn, most of my income comes from working events. I'm going to try and file an unemployment insurance claim next week. I'll also need to contact my bank regarding my car loan and my credit card provider to see what my options are for late payments. Money is gonna tight the next few weeks, or months. Aside from that I'm doing my best to stay healthy and positive during this weird & uncertain time. I hope you and your loved ones are too. Let's hope we get out from under this soon.
I've never been a fan of year-end wrap ups, best-of lists, top-9 pics... none of that. But I do want to shout-out everyone whose rocked a Frankie Mcfly t-shirt. Every time I saw a picture online of someone wearing one a took a screenshot. I made these collages today and uploaded them to Instagram. It makes me happy to see all their smiling faces. Some in beautiful places, some rocking out and some just doing their thing. Thank you so much to everyone that's been supportive of me and my lil endeavor.
Cheers and Happy New Year,
I'm heading out of town soon to hang with the family-bamily so I'm posting this now so I don't forgot and miss two in a row. Enjoy these old Xmas themed pics: Me as Santa, My homemade ugly sweater with decapitated polar bear head and a Secret Satan gift tag. Happy Holidays from me to whoever's reading this shit.
I came out to Galt for my cousin Laura’s birthday party today. I’m spending the night but I can’t sleep. I’ve been laying here for a couple hours and I almost forgot to post to my blog.
Today I ate breakfast. Animated the arms on my little robot guy. Cooked my "household-famous" lentils, but was light on the lentils. Ate the lentils plus more food with the family. Watched the new Rick & Morty episodes. Read a couple comics and ate more food. The only thing left to do is post this blog entry and sleep off this food.
I drove back home from Ukiah today. It felt good to get out of the city and hang with my cousins Bob & Liz for a couple days. My souls battery was able to recharge bit. Now I'm looking forward to starting new projects and wrapping up old ones.
When I got into town yesterday it was already dark so I wasn’t able to see much. Today I was finally able to check out my cousin & his wife’s huge backyard in the woods and go on a short walk/hike near their home. Afterwards we went out for lunch, beers and groceries. At night we we lit the fire pit and gazed at the stars before coming in for dinner. It was a super chill, laid back Saturday.
