Well, just when you thought you had it all together… Things were going great! Just celebrated six years on the air and my birthday, show was ready to roll last night and was in the midst of a kick ass first set. And then, as it happens, we had an error. Let’s not call it an error, let’s call it a mal-fucking-function.
I’m not a fan of Windows 8, and I’ve made that abundantly clear. There’s some notorious bugs in there, specifically with laptop trackpad issues. And, once again, the trackpad froze. Sometimes it unfreezes by itself, sometimes by vigorously rubbing the pad it unfreezes, and sometimes by clicking either button it will start working again. None of the above worked. So, while trying to “rub one out”, so to speak, my hand crashed into the screen of the laptop and that was that. Have you ever seen a broken display? It’s horrifying…
kinda like that, except it’s worse when it’s yours.
So, here we are again. Busted computer, and neither the time or resources to get it fixed at this moment. There would have been no show on the 22nd of June (out of town again; busy busy busy) but that doesn’t matter squat at this moment for the 29th and the rest of the summer. There’s going to be some major changes in my personal life over the next few months, and the show would have probably been (at best) sporadic over the summer; possibly more shows possibly less but different to say the least. But it doesn’t change the fact that it was still alive and kicking, and at this moment it’s not. “What now?” is the burning question on your mind, and mine as well.
Kickstarter Campaign for funding has been suggested; I’d have to find out how much it’s going to cost to fix. Try and fix it myself and damage it further? No thanks. Bite the bullet and just pay for it? Possible, but funds are incredibly tight and not an expense I can handle right now or god only knows when. Buy a new one, or go back to the original way of doing the show and piggyback off the new Macbook? Possible, but not really an option I want to consider. If I can get the other one fixed, that’s really my favored option as I won’t have to reload everything, which is a colossal pain in the ass.
I’m stucked and fucked, gang. And it’s times like these that make me want to hang up the cans and walk away. It always seems to be something; a little nuisance that stops the show for a week or something major that screws me for months on end, like this. It’s seemingly becoming a constant uphill battle to keep me on the airwaves and try to bring the best damn show on the net to the masses every week. I’m frustrated, angry and just depressed over the nightmare that it’s become. Tell me it’s worth it. Let me know that I’m doing something for you, and that you need me here. Comment below, or inbox me on Facebook. I’ll be watching, and I’ll keep you posted.
If this is the last we see each other for the near future, thank you for all your support. Much love and gratitude to all.
