Movies, Zines, and Things
I haven't submitted an article in a few weeks. I'm still alive. Family members sometimes check on me to be sure. I didn't want to submit an article for each and every thing that I do. Hal kinda frowns on that. [Editor's Note: I do?] But, I guess I will catch you up on things.
Summer is nearly 2/3rds over and I only received one taker on my Island of Misfit Noise offer. Oh, well. I'm currently mixing two IOMN tracks (one for EC #5 compilation). I have some older submitted material to pad out the album. Not sure how any of it is going to fit into the movie. It may end up just being the length of a music video. I'm aiming to finish in September, at least, to meet the October deadline for the Planet 9 Film Festival. I haven't shot any footage yet because I have no budget for props or anything. Beyond a one page outline, there isn't any script either (not that it is totally necessary in this case).
I have finally published the first two issues of my epically delayed cassette-zine Theee Urban SpaceCat. The printing company is sending me some at a discount because of my honesty when they messed up on my bill. I kinda rushed putting those together, out of desperation to get SOMETHING finished in this lifetime. But, they still have turned out pretty good. A lot of the material is admittedly kind of old. I wanted to get the stuff out there before I discarded it, as I often do.
I released two noisy Mike Damn Nobody tapes in the past two months, Buy Bull State and Nothing Will Change. They are both challenging listening, if you like that. My attempts to maintain a regular schedule seem to be improving. The daily combination of clinical depression and anxiety is crippling, sometimes. Having some sort of routine, without thinking about it, is the only way I get anything done. After several months of neglect, my laundry and apartment are finally clean again! Two of my paintings are half-finished. I want to get those done this week. I like showing them in my vlogs while I update followers
I have seen some interesting ads on Craigslist and Bandcamp for people needing a bassist or guitarist. Knowing my luck with performing in groups it probably wouldn't last very long. But, I may at least go check them out and see if they're any good. After I put the clothes away today I will probably answer letters and record some demos. Staying away from the internet is a lot healthier. Just a few hours after dark is plenty enough. Later.
