Overstand the Futility of My Antics: Transmission 511, 2020 February 12
Shockingly I had stopped drinking, at least for this week, and had been working very hard at the gym with nothing to show for it. On this day I wrote down that I'd had a four-hour training at work just to be the backup to a backup on some issue or other. I had scribbled something less-than-profound, I'm sure, about the ongoing Democratic primary, but let's face it, I was done caring.
Anyway, "a conceptually and technically perfect show?" Is this really what my notes say? It isn't true, though this one gives me pleasure even now, confirming that it has not all been a waste. And I even got props from drummer John over the phone, who was playing with a cat while waiting for his friend to wake up and give him a toke. I had always hoped that this program would be a soundtrack for positive experiences, so achievement unlocked.
Since this program was broadcast, 425 days ago now, I've gone "on the air" 59 times. I have delivered 52 pre-recorded episodes on account of the pandemic. I wonder if it is a victory just to tread water at this point; it is certainly "funny" to hear myself say during the program that I am "only" thirteen programs behind on this site. I could just give up, but then that would only prove right the people in my life who say I don't take ownership of anything.
New York just legalized marijuana, so I am looking forward to more altered states of my own in the near future. I've been told by more than one person that I need this, so it must be true.
