Should I post in here? Fuck it, I will

Life: Well, I croaked in 2013. Damn doctors said something about Hungry Man dinners, but I know better. It was the third back surgery that capped it. The neuro was a garden gnome from Brazil who giggled like Peter Lorre. Bastard. Being dead is OK, though, y'all don't worry about that, trust me.

Music: No harps at all, but a lot of Enoch Light & His Orchestra, and Arthur Brown, of all things. But seriously, Tyler Childers is the absolute shit.

I hope that everyone is doing well and sheltering in place.

LIFE:
Moved from the Bay Area in 2018 to Louisiana, where my (2nd) wife grew up. We landed across the lake from New Orleans, in St. Tammany Parish. Two kids, 4.5 and 1.5 years, respectively. I took a Master Gardener class last fall (unironically). This is the longest musical dry spell that I've had since I joined the CMJ boards back in the early oughts... the last time I had a kid, I already had band practice nights planned out in my schedule.

MUSIC:
There's always so much... been vibing on East of the Valley Blues almost every day since everything around here dried up due to COVID-19.
Constant musical companions these days are Carolyn Keddy's radio show on KXSF, the Dynamite Hemorrhage Zine and Podcast, MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL radio show... almost anything from Sahel Sounds or Tompkins Square. Digging Wasted Shirt, THICK, The Uranium Club, Collate, House and Land...

I started running at the age of 40 - trying to work my way from half marathon to full marathon form.

LIFE: Living in the NW corner of Jersey. Girls are 12 & 10. Working full time at a medical supply company which most likely wont be affected by the virus. JOb is secure albeit working form home for the next 3 months. Bartending at a local concert venue a few times a month. the hot sauce business has taken off in ways I could have never imagined and has become a job as opposed to a hobby that make a bit of $$. I'm too far in life and debt to 'take that chance' and do it full time, but it has been a very pleasant second income.

MUSIC: tastes are still all over the map. Always leaning towards the heavier end of the rock and metal spectrum, I find myself listening to the new Soccer Mommy record at least 4-5x a week.

Oh shit, I never thought about it. The whole thing is such a big selfish jumbled up mess. Literally anything I feel like hearing, or felt like hearing for awhile. Feels like taking pictures of the world's most epically messy room and posting them online.

Married - no shit, that's awesome.

(Also, sorry to sound surprised, I realize that might seem a bit dickish. No dickery intended.)

Same ol' same ol', longest I've ever kept a job. Work at a healthcare place so things are tense, but I'm administration and was just told to stay home until this thing passes. Not fired, get to work from my back porch until all is clear. Finally settled in and seeing the same girl for a long time now, even moved in together. We both think marriage is for suckers. We'll both also be working from home now and the place is tiny so it will be interesting to see which of us lives. I could take her in a fair fight, but she's sneaky. Otherwise I spend my time semi-successfully trying to avoid old enemies while drinking whiskey and smoking whatever is handy.

Musically, mostly listen to reggae, hip-hop, electronic stuff, noise, jazz. I'm old. When I play rock, it's usually something I know or something that sounds like something I know. Lately, I've been trying to revisit old albums everyone loves that I never liked and see if now any of the work better. Pet Sounds wasn't as awful as I remembered it. Listen to a lot more 45s than I used to. Always busy, but a couple minutes to spin a single or two fits into any day.

Glad to see so many of you still alive. Let's hope it stays that way. (well, most of you)
