Still miss him every day, but had this made and it came out pretty great.

That's great. Is that an actual painting or some sort of Photoshop digital graphics hybrid? My wife would love something like that of our current beastie.

A friend of mine passed today he owned a couple record stores like actual real ones and could order anything you wanted. So tonight I'm drinking some One Barrel rum on the rocks and jamming some tunes.

I haven't been feeling well since last Thursday. I thought it was allergies. No cough or fever. Primarily fatigue, a lingering headache, and some congestion. Yesterday was the worst of it; I had no energy and slept all day. (I had some gatorade and ice cream sandwiches for dinner :lol: ) I feel much better today.

Fuck 2020.
Had to put my dog down last week. 13 year old boxer, 11 with us. He had a great life and was my best friend.

Just saw this. :sad: :gh:

Working from home has its perks but sometimes I find it overwhelming. Not the work but trying to keep up on all the group chats and sidechats and webex meetings - I'm sick of it! I want to permanently mute my mic ! :mad:

Another thing that bugs me is nobody wants to talk on the phone. The only ones who immediately agree to actually speak on the telephone is in my age range. :lol:

That's been bugging me for years, but I had to give up.

What's a 'phone' ? Is that the thing you access your socials on and msg your friends with? Didn't they used to have them on walls? That makes no sense, how would you put it in your handbag or pocket?

Stoopie old timey folk, we wouldn't do that. Now, can I have my smashed avo on toast for the low price of $23.50?

I will only do Zoom or Cisco I fucking loathe talking on the phone. I will not talk on the phone to anyone, no matter even if its for business. If its important it can be done face to face or remotely via VCs. Nothing worse to me than having to hold something next to my head and listen to people drone on and on.

That said my friend died of colon cancer on Tuesday he was only 37, fought it for a year but it was too far gone by the time it was found. I've ran about 25 miles since I heard the news, figured it was healthier than going on a depressed bender.

You have a lot of youngish friends who die..... :scared:

Sorry to hear. If you don't mind me asking how did your friend find out he had cancer? Just listliss and sick with bowel problems or did he just find it on routine check up?

:sad:
Last November he was listless and sick, he was in fairly good shape he worked in the oil fields for Haliburton. He started to feel pain and it was already stage 2-3 last Nov. And yeah cancer knows no age, Bobby who died a couple months ago was older, he was in his 60s, Barry who passed in May was in his 60s but was a heavy heavy drinker.

Also I talked to him a lot on the phone even though I hated it namely because I didn't go thru the same cancer but I was dealing with it from 2010-mid 2011. I'm chalking it all up to 2020.

This year is so brutal...... :mad:


I am really lucky that actually I have had a sequence of events the last year that have been crazy lucky/beneficial. But there has been so much pain for most everyone...

Outside of the deaths and losing my Pug it hasn't been that bad I haven't done shit since 10/23/19 except travel and with the bars essentially breaking even, not being able to promote shows etc on a personal level it's not been so bad. Just the shit happening around me and to friends, hell I even signed a couple of footballers to my marketing company. That said death does stain things, with two mentors and friends going down for the count.
