Yesterday at 12:45 PM Pacific
time, Marty Jessica and I finally made it.
Because of the trailers we we're
pulling a 30 hour drive took us over 40
hours...but we made it. Goddamnit we
made it. Found the apartment complex
with no problem. Rang the buzzer and
no one was there. They were out to
lunch until 1:30 PM. (sigh) We just
drove for 3 1/2 days and now we have
to sit for a freakin' hour. Then
again, we all sat there with the biggest
smiles. 70 degrees not a cloud in the
sky and a nice breeze. I couldn't
We got our pick of two apartments
and got one on the corner closest to the laundry room.
Unfortunately, there's no refrigerator. For christ's
sake. Of ALL our requirements
(3 parking spaces, nice area, $1000, 2 bedroom,
allows cats) we just assumed there was
a fridge. Now the virtual
walk-through online SHOWED a fridge,
but when she showed us the apartment it
didn't. Well, what the hell were we
gonna do now... We had to sign. Of
course now we have to either rent or
buy a fridge for our 6 month lease.
Son of a bitch we were not ready for
that. Anyway, signed all the papers
and man are there some strange rules.
Like I can't wash my car. It doesn't
look nice. The lady says: "Well, you
know there's these things at gas
stations that cost like $3 and they'll
do it for you..." I just glared at
her. I LIKE washing my car. And I
can't do it at my apartment. It just
must be California I guess. It's also
a pretty nice part of town
(considering the exorbitant rent I
should hope so), so that may explain it.
The apartment itself
is HUGE. Actually bigger than where we
were living before. When I get it all
fixed up I'll give you guys a tour. Gotta
love the 21st
Century. Oh speaking of that, this evening
for your viewing
pleasure is a reenactment
of Laurel & Hardy's "The
It's me and MOOSE
carrying a piano up the stairs. Somehow I
got stuck on the bottom.
It's about 300 kb in all.
And also if you want to "choose"
whether to download
these clips, you can setup you're email to
download them. I'm sure if
you're just checking mail, having to wait
for 10 minutes
Everything else in lala land is
pretty much a blur. Our apartment is full
of boxes, so that's the first goal. I
applied for a job at Sam Ash Music.
I figure my engineering background has
to get me that. Oh and if that
suprises you, uhm yeah that's the
plan. I'm getting any job I can and
pursuing 4tvs on the side. Radio is
not part of the equation here. I need
to make 4tvs work. So I'll be
check-out boy at Sam Ash, or bag boy at the
grocery store. I don't care. However I
can eat, I will do. I must admit
it is strange though. Going from
white-collar to blue-collar by choice. I
have no doubt that my radio resume
would get me a pretty nice day-gig around
here. There's so many little radio
stations and my production skills alone
would get me in the door, but I need
to focus. It's kind of eciting really.
Oh well, that's about all for now.
As for all of your replies, I have yet
to read them or respond because I am
doing all of this long distance on a
calling card. Once I get my LA number
set-up I'll reply to all of you.
