This morning

I woke up and checked my email, decidedly earlier than I expected to. I remembered upon waking at 8ish that I had slept for 4.5 hours the previous evening, and then stayed up, did my laundry and with a leisurely cadence prepared for work. I also got an email notifying me of a sale at an online media store I use, which featured a digital voice recorder. Uh oh. So I went and looked at it, as it was a cheap low end thing, but the same issue nagged in the back of my head and I decided to look at uncompressed digital recorders, which are a whole lot more expensive. I found one on sale at musiciansfriend.com and, well, I spent.

Now, it was $200 off, so I think it was a good decision—two xlr inputs, rca input and output, runs on compact flash, not DAT (kind of damn cool at that), and has the usual other features in an audio recorder. I like the fact that it uses reusable media that I already use (with my camera) and I'm excited to start having professional portable sound recording available to me again. Here come project improvements.

This is going to be an even more beautiful thing once I start being a cabbie.

Hey Ryan, you think I could chat w/ you about the PDX outreach of the Gypsee show?

One of my friends used to work in the warehouse at Musician's Friend

sure. shoot.

also, is it possible to get myself a booth if i can make it?

Well, I would like some posters distributed on Hawthorne / Belmont and NE Killingsworth Alberta.

That and just some word of mouth discussion of the shows existance w/ potentially interested parties.

You know, pretty much just basically getting the word out.


As far as a booth is concerned, I would send an email to 'boleyflowershow@yahoo.com' -- Jeff Hogue will work on hooking you up with the necessary paperwork / logistic info.

could you post me the flyer addresses again?

and, how am i supposed to afford the flyers? can you send me some after you make a big batch printing or send some money? : /

I can mail you the posters if you have a physical address, or you could print them yourself and I could mail you a check.

They are stored at http://www.prismsgroup.com/urt/

somewhere in there

It would probably be cheaper if you get a bunch printed and send them to the different cities you want them in. (then they'll all be consistent as well)

my address is:

4217 SE 37th Ave
Portland, OR 97202

You're really gonna be a cabbie? Can I get your car #? I think that's cool. A friend of mine had a digi recorder and we did all kinds of madness with it. Lots of fun.
What's up with that writing project you mentioned before?

re: writing project- not sure. what with jobness and renn fayre and all kinds of other stuff it still hasn't solidified. i don't know what ivar's schedule is going to be like yet, as he's still on his first week, and after a month i'll be joining him, which may make for scheduling dificulties. hopefully i'll see him tonight before he goes off to work, and if i do i'll talk to him about it.

oh, for now the car is Green Cab #218, although the tranny isn't so hot so ivar is probably going to try to trade. i'm not sure when i'll be starting as i still have my other job until mid-june. it all depends on how irritated i get with the kids. heh.

Well, let me know if anything develops for the write up. That's pretty cool you're driving a cab. Talk to everyone and have lots of fun!
