Still no luck on the job hunt. It is getting scary and I may have to seriously consider changing careers as moving is not an option. The thing is, I have no idea what else I’d rather be doing aside from writing for the WWE or something like that. I keep watching the bank account shrink and thanks to my car deciding it wanted to break, I’m even lower on cash. Luckily it was under 100 bucks, the battery went bad but it is still an expense I didn’t need right now. When it rains it pours I guess.
This Sunday, the Subhumans (UK) are playing with From Ashes Rise at Logan Square Auditorium. I’m planning on going, however I’m not having the best luck finding someone to go with me. I scraped together enough cash to pay my admission, but there won’t be any drinking or eating on my nite out. I haven’t been to that place in well over a decade so I don’t even remember what the layout was but hopefully I can snap a few good pictures while I am there.
I just waiting on bags so I can assemble these green vinyl Government Issue 7″s. The record will be available for sale probably on Monday. There is 100 of these made and since I’m out of sleeves after words, there is very little chance I’ll ever press up any more. There is going to be a new mail order page on the Spontaneous Combustion site complete with a paypal shopping cart system so people can order online quickly and easily.
My holiday weekend was pretty uneventful for the most part. I did get to go to RAT’s bbq with my lady and our new dog and that was a lot of fun. The dog got sick on the 4th so I didn’t even get to go out and see any fireworks shows.
I don’t suppose you can sell stuff on eBay?
I’ve been selling some unwanted stuff here and there for some help with money. Problem is, some of my unwanted stuff such as toys, seem to be unwanted by not just me 🙁
You should apply for a grant to create the country’s first underground rock archive and museum. Surely there’s gotta be some rich philantropist out there that grew up on HC and wants to ensure the legacy is preserved! I’ve never been to the Rock and Roll Museum but it doesn’t strike me that they are really in documenting the underground.
can’t wait to get that government issue record, i missed out on all the other pressings
Well, I am sorry to hear about your money problems.
Anyways, I just found your blog recently. I was turned onto it by a friend…a dear friend now that he has shown me this diamond of a site.
Anyways, I am from Los Angeles, born and raised and was involved in the punk scene during the late eighties/ early nineties. It is really good to see that people still care about punk and hardcore. Keep up the great work.
By the way, I gave you a little blurb on my site.
