Me in Montana's Paradise Valley during my Rock Star days, circa 1990. Check out the shirt and matching boots! Stylish, eh?I'm holding my mother's cat, Goofy, and my mom and her lunatic ex-BF are in the background. My brother has the car, which is still running today.

In more recent news, I just got a call from a newish coffeehouse that is becoming one of Richmond's most happening indie music venues.
They need a soundman.
I need money.
We talk tonight.

Ideally, they'll let me design and install/upgrade the PA system (and hopefully lease some gear from me)...I'd like to hang some acoustic baffles from the ceiling and in the corners, which would make the metal box -I mean the concert room-sound much better. With luck, it could go full-time and would get me out of the office world...at worst, I'll pick up some extra cash by working nights. I might not be able to blog much though...if I am not around, don't worry, I'm just workin'...

Angel- Thanks! I need the extra money but it's gonna mean not sleeping. Ever.

CW- I'm getting better-looking as I get older, right? Right? Aww...humour me.The cat did.
