Not a lot going on, but hopefully I’ll get the parts at my parents house to rebuild my laptop on Sunday.

I’m working at the video store again. I’m shocked the place is still open almost twenty years later & that they are still dominated by a VHS back catalog instead of DVDs. My buddy Matt still works there & our task for the week is a physical inventory of the entire store. I’m working in a section that’s nine shelves of animated non-anime non-kids movies that definitely didn’t exist when I worked here. There’s a movie called “Birth of Cool” with a biker on it done in a style somewhere along the lines of Fritz the Cat & the front says, “A loving tribute to rock & roll.” There’s another on the next shelf called “Death Dealer” with a Frank Frazetta cover & on the back, the stills look like charcoal sketches actually by Frazetta. While I’m working on the inventory, a lady checks out a movie & Matt is telling her about how for $2 more she can rent four more movies & she says, “I don’t have time for that! I’ve got to get to a hair appointment!”

I’m staying with Nathan Amundson (Rivulets) in a bullet ridden cinderblock building. In the bathroom, part of the wall & ceiling are missing. I wish it was after the apocalypse, but I’m pretty sure it’s just a really shitty apartment.

Instead of starting QRD & Silber at ages 19 & 20, I started them at ages 16 & 17. It’s the first week of my senior year of high school & in all my classes I’m busy writing letters to bands & music directors & reviewers & I realize I just need to drop out of school to focus on my work.
I have a new guitar pedal that looks like a Digitech PDS double stomp delay pedal; but instead of two stomps, it has two rows of two stomps (four total). I think it is a double looper with the ability to synchronize or non-synchronize the loops with each other.
