    Tonight i got paid $200 to just count in and count out inventory for a relatively small show and i felt bad for taking that much at first UNTIL the tour manager turned out to be super clueless and annoying so i gladly took it

    I used to read every night...I'd go to bed, read for a half hour, then go to sleep. But, since college, I've always had a laptop on hand...I'm still reading, it's just user-generated content, and not an actual book. So, I guess I'm looking for a trick or tip to break that habit, and return myself to a place where I want to read books before bed, instead of forums like this.
    ditch the social media and screentime my guy. start setting a screen allowance time for yourself. no more screens after X:XXpm.

    Passed through Shorty's old stomping grounds on the way up to WV on a ski trip. Stopped in King to grab McD's drive thru this morning.

    Got rained on all day skiing yesterday. Still fun though because the crowds weren't too bad thanks to the sucky ski weather. At least it wasn't super cold rain and ice..

    Scribd is a great resource too. you can get a 30 day free trial and after that it is about $9.00 a month.

    Why Isn’t NBC Talking About the Sexual Harassment Allegations Against Shaun White?

    Because Sean White is the poster boy for them. They can't afford to bite the hand that feeds them in that regard.

    Not so much. Target dumped him.. most of the big players are keeping him on the DL since the allegations came out.

    Oh hey, site's back up!

    Haven't posted in a while anyways.

    Not much going on in my life! Just been chillin' mostly. Been taking some IT Support classes online to try and get out of this damn job, can't believe I've been here for 6 years. Found out yesterday my wife is probably going down to the Virgin Islands for work this summer for 3 weeks. Once the dates get locked in I'm buying a plane ticket to go down for a week. Cheapest vacation ever! We are also going on a 9 day cruise in April so I'll be down in the Caribbean a bunch this year! We are driving through the night to Miami for our cruise though, that's going to suck!

    How's everyone else doing?

    I just found out Stacy Peralta had a son who was a jazz piano virtuoso. Unfortunately he died 6 years ago from viral pneumonia aggravated by drugs and alcohol. The same thing that killed Billie Holiday and Charlie Parker. It's sad because he was only 22. Look up Austin Peralta.

    Check out the podcast Cocaine And Rhinestones, they've got a full episode about Billie Holiday.

    I'll have to check that out. Right now I'm about two thirds of the way through Miles Davis' autobiography. He talked a little bit about her and especially her later years and death. Her husband was a controlling asshole and kept her on the verge of junk sickness to keep her in line.

    Next on the list is George Clinton's. I saw the book in the window of a local shop and had to have it. I might be going to see him play in a couple of weeks.

    Man, every time I look at longboard stuff online, it becomes more and more apparent how completely and utterly dead the sport is. It was a huge deal when SoCalSkateshop began "specializing" in longboards, and had entire sections dedicated to trucks, wheels, and decks...now it's just one little "longboard/cruiser" section. Stoked.LA has been decimated. What was once a flourishing cottage industry with dozens, if not hundreds, of small-time brands is now nothing more than a niche (again).

    Anyway, are you guys on Instagram or anything? I'd love to stay in touch next time the ol' Cafe takes a poop on us. I'm on Insta, Twitter, email, Untappd (beer app on my phone), several guitar forums, Steam, and PSN...drop me a PM if you want to exchange information.
