New years resolution was a fail. The idea was to write more than ever before, but I have been avoiding my computer like if it wasn’t working. I was going to post more frequently in this blog and on Tijuana Adventure about all the tours I’ve been having. At least the San Diego Reader keeps publishing me, but I have barely sent articles. Only 7 so far this year, but it could easily be way more. I actually got paid for not getting published, so it would have been 8 (editor mistake left me out of print, but still got paid). I also got in the special edition for music and I have been included in more special issues in the future. So some stuff has been accomplished.
I am not writing as much as I used too though. I have plenty of ideas but then I do nothing. Having a regular job is a blessing and a curse. I really want to quit to go back to full time writing, but last year I suffered financially because of it. So a steady paycheck keeps me afloat, but it also keeps me satisfied with not doing much. I don’t plan to be on retail much longer though, new jobs seem to be coming my way and Tj Adventure is growing.
In fact, I have had a lot of TJ adventures this year already and I get emails on the regular. Unfortunately, many emails end up just being inquiries or last minute cancellations. That is why I am going to start a new tour every Saturday from 2 pm to 8 pm. More details about this on my other webpage soon.
Classical guitar has been abandoned for now. I actually got a gig for Valentine’s day, but I wussed out from lack of practice and proper equipment. The upside of this is that I have been practicing with my band [DONKICHOW] way more and we already played a few gigs. Here’s a video of a gig on March 6th:
I uhhh… got too drunk, ended up passing out and missing the rest of the show.
I missed one of my favorite bands [100 Onces] despite my friends trying to wake me up. I also missed Vostok from Mexicali and Sociedad Secreta del Vació. :(
It would be so nice to go back to photography as well, but with no equipment, it is going to be a while until I can actually get photography gigs. In the mean time, here are some pictures of Senator John McCain.
Why John McCain? Why not!
To be honest, I have not followed any celebrity news whatsoever. Not sure who is popular anymore. I also got lazy and do not want to plug in my hard drives. I just quickly opened a folder and the John McCain pictures came up.
The pictures were taken on February 1st of 2010.
There you have it. John McCain is another person I saw in my days as a paparazzo. If you are wondering if I saw your favorite celebrity, just ask me and I will post the pictures.
Hopefully I’ll write more again soon.
