    One of my clients is still in the ICU. A couple of weeks ago my bank account got frozen due to back taxes. And Friday my girlfriend of 8 years decided to break up with me via text message again. She is making a stink about wanting to get me my stuff back (a few t-shirts and a bass) ASAP so she can get a clean break but doesn't understand that I'm working in an ICU 7 fucking days a week for someone who can't talk, is on a traech, and getting food and water through tubes.

    I guess it depends on if it's a good bass or not. If it's a good bass you'll suck it up and go get it. If it's a beater and doesn't sound that good tell her to dump it at Goodwill. It's pretty clear that she didn't get what she wanted from you for Valentine's Day and probably never will. Guessing she wanted an engagement ring.. wild guess but you're not getting any younger and tick tock tick tock her clock won't STFU.

    Actually we were in a slump and her way of dealing was to bail. It isn't a terrific bass but we have history (me and the bass that is). It's the bass that I brought with me to Europe and played my first paying gig on.

    She said that she wants to say her last goodbye to me and get a clean break. I have a few last words for her too as the fact that she chose to dump me via text like a 15 year old in study hall rather than face to face like an adult. She sent me a bunch of weird texts while I'm trying to deal with my client. I asked her to stop texting me and actually call as having to spell everything out on a letter board makes you kinda not want to deal with spelling shit out. Then she offered to bring my stuff to me at the hospital which was a no go for me as I'm in a fucking ICU. Between her method of breaking it off, her timing and her general attitude at this time I feel like she's about the shittiest person on earth. I needed her emotional support and she fucking bailed in a really shitty way.

    The annual shut down is always a bitch. It's even worse when it's on SBC because then they all come over here.

    Online stores and skate companies themselves are undermining skateshops and a ton are closing down. I have talked to more than one shop owner (including one in a big city in a different country) who all say they've gone full days without one sale before, and over the past year or two more times than not they're spending more than they're making. The general attitude in the community has swung pretty far over to the jock mentality, as was expected with the corporate takeovers. But, Chris Haslam put out a new part and it's ridiculous, so there's one positive.

    I walked in to a Zumiz Saturday night. Place was PACKED! Loud, profanity laced rap music blasting too high to have a conversation with a sales associate. NOBODY, not a single person, was looking at skate gear. It's all crammed to the back of the store with all hardware, everything but decks and completes packed in two small display cases all covered up. But, ya, they were selling tons of Thrasher shirts, hoodies, and Vans..

    That name became somewhat unfortunate in that it means something totally different now hahaha. But, ya I was a little bummed when I heard Skateboarder went down (again) in the early 80s. It had actually started mid 60s and went down only to come back mid 70s... up... then down.... up.... then down. I knew that all magazine formats were dead when Playboy finally failed.

    Attention everyone in california: Stop moving to arizona and ruining everything for us.

    Rent is on average 300-500 dollars more per month than this time one year ago. I have to move out in the next 3 weeks and quite literally everything is out of my price range now. Apartments that were $850-$900 literally less than a year ago when i looked last are now showing up at $1,250-$1,400

    People displaced by the wild fires are not going back and moving a little farther east instead?

    Fortunately I live in a rent controlled apartment and my rent just went up $16 a month so now I'm paying $600 including utilities.
