This past year has been a tough one for a lot of people, myself included. I’ve pretty much hit rock bottom on more than one occasion: lost my day jobs, ties with my family were finally strained beyond repair and severed completely, homelessness, broken computers, lack of everything, poor choices in escapism, etc. But despite all the curve balls this recession has thrown at me I’ve tried my best to keep pursuing the things I love: put on a play at Poet’s Theater in SF, got a collection of poems published by Bent Boy Books called “Ghosts”, used my time being homeless as an opportunity to travel around the country which enabled me to meet a ton of great young people that also are struggling and really fucked up from the recession, and ended up in NYC pursuing my dream of forging a life for myself in one of the greatest cities on earth (AND IT’S FUCKING TOUGH).
Anyway, due to all these changes in my life and due to my lack of a decent computer I’ve been unable to update this website like I used to in the past. It’s been really difficult for me to post content worth your while when I don’t have a proper computer, I don’t have the ability to download MP3’s, nor the ability to edit pictures, video’s, etc. Recently I’ve gotten the once-a-year email from wordpress asking me to pay for the URL of this site and in years passed I purchased with pride because I loved being able to have my little corner of the internet to joyously praise the artists/writers/performance artists/painters/whoevers I love but now it seems like it’s no longer a possibility because I am broke and unable to generate content without a proper computer.
Before shutting down this site I’d just like to throw it out to the readers and ask that if any of you are interested in helping keep this site going please let me know. I basically just need a proper computer and $50 bucks for the URL fee.
And if it’s time for this chapter in time to die I understand that all things fade and I’d just like to say thank you to everyone that was with me at all the parties we’ve thrown along the way and to all the artists that generously contributed to us THANKS FOR EVERYTHING…
