The Search For a Band

So the search for a band begins again. Before my computer drive getting erased and the data loss, I used to record quite a bit. Now, it’s hard to just get playing and recording. I was using a lot of apps that I had gotten off of thepiratebay. Eventually, I meant to buy those and go legit. But since the crash, it’s been easier to just wait until I buy those apps legit and to not install anything that’s…. er, “borrowed”.

Now, I find myself thinking whether to buy a desktop and set it up or just buy a laptop and set that up for recording and music production. For using electronic music and techno, FLStudio and others will do just fine on a laptop. But for recording and mixing, the computer need more juice to run. Or maybe the laptop will do. Being mobile on the road, it’s nice to have a laptop without having to drag a whole desktop with you on the road. However, a bigger desktop with a tower case has more space to install drives, sound cards and to have a bigger monitor and better view.

Also trying to look for a band to play with. To at least start playing again.

The apartment search continues…. it had slowed down but I was just reminded last nite that I really oughta go find a place to move into. The sooner I move out of here, the sooner I can have a schedule that is more conducive to my work schedule. Currently, my cousins stay up and use the computer till 1am. That computer is in the same room that they have allowed me to stay in. So I can’t say anything. But I have to wake up at 6:35a and get going for the day. Feels like running on no diesel, just fumes.

Trip to LA and Santa Monica

So it is settled! This weekend I will be driving to LA and Santa Monica to sightsee and to really see the places. Might have to make more than one trip and might have to go to different parts each time just to really see the LA area.

I will take the camera with me and take enough pictures for you all to see and enjoy as well. Have to first empty out the card and save all the pictures off.

The apartment search has been going slow. Went to the Olive Apartments yesterday. The apartments are next to a church. The church custodian is also the apt. mgr. Nice fellow. He was nice enough to talk and explain that he just rented out the last unit avaialble. And recommended other places to try and other methods to find apartments. This is driving me crazy. Thinking about trading the stang for a Chevy van or something and just living out of the van. Will allow me to move more and worry less about lodgings. Well, only wishful thinking. Bathroom and shower will be a big problem. And that’s a hassle I’d rather avoid. Otherwise, the plan could really work. With the VerizonWireless internet conenction using PC Card, it should be fine to work remotely and not have to really need a landline and DSL.

Back to reality. Another option is to drive further north to San Fransisco and just find a place there. In terms of apartments, Cali is expensive. Hotels are expensive. In San Fransisco hotels are like $250 a night for regular hotels.

This whole trip needed to be better thought out.

The issue with lodgings is not due to any problem with my current setup. My uncle and his family are more than welcoming and very nice. They are very generously letting me stay here rent free and mooch all the free internet service that my work requires. But at some level, it feels like even tho I’m with family I’m still not home.

Accordings to the latest polls (of friends and acquaintances), I’d be an idiot to try to move out.
