It's a bit after 2 AM here and that is just about the time I usually go to bed.
I have a fun job, well, fun jobs.....the pay sucks, but they are more interesting than accounting..
I listen to Metal music a lot because I write reviews concerning metal bands. I won't write about any other genre because I'm most comfortable
writing my completely unqualified opinions about metal music.
I also promote bands, but not as an official employee of bands. I just promote bands I enjoy via connections with other music people solely for the
enjoyment of helping keep metal music alive.
I photograph bands when I go to shows which is frequently. Sometimes I do it for pay.
And I paint on canvas, mostly. I get some bucks from that as well.
I get to chose my hours for working. And usually I work whenever the mood strikes me. Nope, I don't earn much money this way, but then, what do I
need with a lot of money? I get my music for free because I review bands and I have an extensive collection of digitized music.
I also get into shows free much of the time and bands reward me for well-written reviews of them by sending me some tokens of their appreciation, like
autographed pics, guitar picks, band t-shirts. Not all of them do that, because I don't just write fluff pieces and sometimes I write things bands
don't really want to hear. However, I do search for the good things in their music so I can at least write something positive about them.
I've gotten to the point now that managers, promoters and producers sometimes seek me instead of me trying to get with them.
I've taken on interviewing bands as well. And was asked Saturday night if I would interview a band I went to see, not for business, but just for
some plain ole headbanging.
And with that, I'm suddenly tired. I guess I bored myself.
