I’m not sure exactly how it’s possible that being technically unemployed has equaled having less and less time to accomplish all the things that I am supposed to be doing.
I don’t go to an 8 hour per day job. I don’t commute. I don’t have to BE anywhere at any particular time.
And still my to do list doesn’t seem to get any shorter.
I have lots of irons in lots of fires and hoping for one of them to get hot enough to do something with.
I’m working on a redesign of the Total Eclipse website. I’m attempting to turn it into a big resource for musicians in cover bands, as well as clients who need help figuring out how to hire a band for their events. I’ve gotten several articles written for the new site already. And I’m putting the finishing touches on a 25 page eBook about Live Performance Contracts. I’m hoping to launch the new site by the end of the month. Just because I need some sort of goal to be working towards.
I’m still sending out resumes like crazy. I have had a few minor responses that haven’t panned out to anything yet. There are two opportunities that are dangling in front of me that I’m just waiting for someone to lower them within my reach. Meaning, the recruiters are fairly confident I am a good match and they are trying to get me in for an interview.
Don’t worry Killer and Liz, I am working on your wicked awesome new website. I fired it up to look at it today and decided I hated it, and have completely retooled what I had spent several days doing already. That’s the way it goes for a designer. I like it now. Ask me again tomorrow.
I’ve decided despite being the red-headed step child who doesn’t fit into the gay blogger clique, that I’m going to attend the Gay Blogger Summit later this month. I’m going to drag UMB and my friend Matt along with me so at the very least someone will be there that actually likes me.
Have you ever noticed after the third or fourth day of not having a shower, you can no longer notice your own smell and your hair looks fantastic? Uh, yeah, me neither.
I love Kathy Griffin. “My Life on the D List” had its season premier tonight. I got sad because I know her dad died a few months ago and that we’re gonna end up seeing that happen during this season.
I’m still riding a bit of a music geek high from this weekend. Total Eclipse played a wedding in Santa Cruz. The event started a bit rough because we didn’t get the chance to run a sound check… but it ended up going really well. The part that makes me geek out a bit is that we played at Cocoanut Grove on the boardwalk.
Cocoanut Grove was an extremely popular venue in the 40’s and 50’s, back when Santa Cruz was sort of a California Atlantic City. There were plaques and posters on the walls commemorating the performances of artists like Artie Shaw, Stan Getz, Benny Goodman, Harry James, and even Nat King Cole.
My band was performing on the same stage that Nat King Cole has played.
I was sitting in a dressing room in the back that probably had the same paint on the wall as when Nat himself sat in there looking in the same mirror that I was staring at myself in.
I just gotta say that was pretty fucking cool.
