Just down from my house there is this trail. And this is where it leads.
I won’t be living here that much longer, and that is a shame. Perhaps I will camp out in the woods nearby secretly like one of these Francophone hippies. But then I would have no access to WiFi and therefore working on my podcasts and downloading the freshest new tunes would be very difficult. I have a duty to my “Tofino peeps” at home and abroad, to be sure. And dammit, I don’t intent to forget about you guys, no matter what hardships I face or what prospective avenues I may traverse. We’ve come too far for that, haven’t we.
Right now I’m listening to a song I recorded of a guy named Dave I work with who plays a mean guitar. The acoustics are perfect because you can hear the rain on my skylight, and he even gives a little sigh of satisfaction at the end of it, because he knows he just nailed a vibe. It was a moment in time, one that I hope to bring to a StandUp SpeakUp podcast in the days to come. I’m working furiously on the edits, writing my own synthesizer bits and screwing around with it in Ableton. I’m thinking of taking an Ableton Live workshop in the coming days with a fellow Tuff City digital beatz profession.
AND GUYS>>>> GUESSS WHAT??? APPARENTLY MY SURFBOARD IS READY TO ROCK AND ROLL AGAIN>>>> AND I THINK IT”S WARM ENOUGH TO WEAR MY WETSUIT AGAIN.
So do I give a fuck that I’m gonna be homeless in a few days. Um, kinda. Mostly because I’m not sure how the hell I’m going to do high-level podcast editing at that point. And it’s kinda cold. Basically my cell phone data bill will go through the roof at that point and I might as well be renting an Air BnB (like the rest of the tourists that are forcing many of us commoners between a rock an a hard place), you know?
Anyways, make sure you check out the latest podcast I just dropped from this past week, which includes an interview with a friend about a moment of natural pause, a couple hitchhiking jaunts and a plethora of dope-ass tunes.
This is life. Deal with it. #peace
