Long Lost

It's been a while since I've posted anything but the blog ain't dead, yet. 2018 was not a good year for me. I was unemployed during February, March and April. After applying for many jobs that paid decent and not getting anything I had to go low and take a dishwasher job just to pay the rent. After a couple months of that I couldn't do it anymore for various reasons. After a few weeks I had to take another low job as a busboy in a French Restaurant and it is thee lowest paying job I've ever had in my life. At the end of last August I had a cycling accident and fractured two ribs. That's the most pain I've ever had in my life at one time. I was out of action for one month, although, it took until December until I didn't feel any pain in my ribs anymore. While I was recovering my landlady told me she was moving in her boyfriend and he was getting my room. So, I had to move out. In October I moved to a new place and it has taken some time to get everything organized. I finally got my stereo and editing studio set up this month and will be back to digitizing old tapes very soon. I have a few more shows from Japan to edit and post. Then some stuff from Australia and New Zealand, followed by some shows from the European Continent and then a ton of stuff from England. Keep your eyes on it. Thanks to everyone who sent me stuff or traded with me in 2018. I acquired a lot of great stuff, too much to post on the blog. Some of this stuff, though, I will be posting on YouTube. So, you can also check my YouTube page for more fun stuff.
