In classic fashion, despite entire blog posts on the subject, I am now doing everything *but* selling.
Yes, as those who know me know, this is normal. Its how I ‘Get it done,’ apparently. I have decided that *now* is the time to finally digitize that big-ass box of cassettes I been hauling around with me for the last ten, wait no, twenty(?) years. (Hey, at least they ain’t 8 trax yo!) My rationale: “Gosh, I sure don’t want to move those *again.* But really… now??? You’d think that’d be enough distraction, but no, I also endeavor to scan a full two crates full of old memories, and this *after* scanning of all the old VHS and 8mm videotapes. It intrigues me that this seems to keep happening. No good, hard deadline seems to be complete in my world, without a monumental, yet essential thing I ‘Gotta do first.’
Hey, I’m prone to the ‘big last-minute push,’ I can’t deny it. There’s something about the adrenalin, and the deadline… its like my own whale to land, my own storm to weather — yargggggh, I can DO IT! Drama rules on the high seas and I am in the fight again.
But wait. I think I am on to something…
Just as I’m about to go far into the wind, and out on the high plains of this here blue planet… I am again taking a guided tour of ‘Where I come from.’
And then… The Question…
Where you goin’ now Homeslice???
Well, dammit, as soon as I leave the analog tape realm behind, the future, or something, well… awaits.
As I listen, and process the sounds and sights of yesteryear, I am grounded in where I come from, and set up to go forth in style. And yes, some of you are even getting a shout out — a random facebook post, email or other ‘What’s up?’ across time. Don’t worry, you were always my friend, even in my silence.
Maybe this is more important than selling.
I didn’t plan it — it just happens.
And from here, where I’m scanning, I recommend. Go visit where you came from, and say hi again to some of those still-friends. It’s awesome!
Its also a fantastic way to procrastinate, until the narwhal breaches again.
Cheers from yesteryear, ’cause I ain’t gettin’ dickety-shit done today!
