- $7 Dollar Wednesday
- Lots Of Rain On Radar
I have made 50 bucks the first 3 days of this week.
If I am to stick to my routine, i.e. ride my bike down to Broad Avenue to get either cat food, energy drink, cigarettes, water, weed, bath salts or food; now would be a good time to make the dash for it.
It might not be a busking night tonight, due to weather.
I have the 20 bucks to put on my green plastic card, which will put the balance up just over 40 bucks.
I can start to look for some kind of video camera at that point, by "discount" shopping.
Even though so much just becomes irrelevant to mankind, and there are famous people dying every day..
I find that, once I am sitting down at the Lilly Pad, my enthusiasm level rises palpably. But, even as I approach the spot on my bike, I am filled with self doubt.
Last night, I forced myself to envision how I would prefer the night to go. I supposed that I wanted someone to come along and tip me 100 bucks, but, more importantly for me to feel like I had given them something worth that; like a humorous video of myself dropping the names of their friends back home into a song...
So, it is Thursday and I am going to believe what I see on the weather website. The second band of rain to our immediate west is just started to sweep over us, as evidenced by Gary, a resident, having just come in from smoking a cigarette and exclaimed: "It's raining again."
Give it a half hour and we will be in the clear.
I'm getting kind of ambitious about getting some kind of recorder. I could always strip the audio off of any video that I shoot and burn it onto CD's and maybe have them available for sale by Mardi Gras.
And, there is the possibility of taking them into the Tipitina's Music Co-Op and adding to them with backup vocals, a second guitar, maybe even use the piano there as a bass instrument on its leftmost keys.
Time now to go and have more coffee at the apartment and then pack up and ride off to play for an attempted three hours.
