About this blog title

I cannot tell you how many times I have shown up at events with a couple of cameras around my neck, a gadget bag full of odds & ends and a lighting kit and have been asked that question. If it happened once every few years, that would be one thing. But it happens a LOT. It's like getting pulled over by the police and he's standing there with uniform, gun, flashing lights and asking him "Are you a cop?" I would love to come back with a witty reply, such as "No, I am Jesus. Don't you recognize my beard?" However, I cannot be that rude.

Day Sixtyseven: Hustling, Hustling

So today I spent trying to keep up the hustle. I designed and printed this piece that hopefully will draw some bodies to the Muskie Lounge next Wednesday. I also designed a similar postcard which I will mail to other cafes and restaurants that I am interested in playing. That also entailed looking up the addresses of those venues. It all eats up time. And finally, I used the same photo and worked it into a bulletin board piece with tear off phone numbers to try and hustle up some guitar students. One must keep throwing stuff out there and hope something bounces back.

Incidentally, the photo is a self portrait taken by a window in the upstairs hallway of my home in Chaumont, NY.
