Text Messages, Sure

mike, you realize you are intentionally sabotaging your own efforts so you never have to confront the prospect of failure, right? the ironic thing being is that as a result of this neurosis, all you ever do is fail.

and i want you to know i'm not saying this to be mean or even troll. this is one of those life lessons that got missed through all the crazy, but insanity's no excuse, mike. plenty of completely batshit motherfuckers have managed to achieve in the arts. hell, most of the great artists were fucked in the head.

listen to the nike commercials. they speak truth.

Of Open Mics, Or, Epic Failure

I screwed up. I'm determined never to do so again.

I didn't make it to last night's Open Mic.

The reason was that I had stayed up all night burning and labeling CDs to hand out. When I was done with that I had to drive to Sunnyvale (I just moved to South San Jose) to send Bonita her wire, as yesterday was payday.

Then I went to Best Buy to buy these special, expensive Photo Lithium batteries because my UltraLast rechargeables don't have the juice to make my camera flash.

By the time I got home, I only had two hours to sleep until I had to wake up at 5:00 to book my Open Mic appearance. I don't remember doing so, but I must have shut the alarm off. I ended up sleeping round the clock.

I feel bad because I'd asked a bunch of friends to show up. When I awoke my phone was full of text messages from them, wondering where I was.

I am aware that just about the worst thing a musician can do is to fail to even show up at a gig. I'm determined never to do this again.
