than spending today smoking weed and filing for unemployment.
FUCKING A WORK IS SLOW.
move out west when you get some cash, more work, better all-around
Thinkin' bout Vegas actually.
Lots of stagework in Vegas...
fuck vegas, emigrate to canada.
So you spent money on weed even though you have no job, priorities????
Dat whole criminal record thing is kinda looming over my head. Trust me I thought about it, especially once the Royal Ballet of Canada came by and I found out Canadian road crews are fucking awesome.
go on craigslist and get a job passing out flyers till u can do better.
I already have my next job lined up.
Stagework is a bitch when you start out you kinda just hafta be around and when a show ends the list of who gets the calls gets relatively reset so I hafta make more calls blah blah blah.
Long story short no shows around here for the next couple weeks or so and I just need a little assistance in the meantime is all.
Gives you time to focus on more music etc.
HEARD DAT. I've been experimenting quite a bit.
bc would be better if u didnt need 2 ids to buy liqour and were allowed to touch the strippers
you can get a pardon for emigrating, you should look into it
look for jobs in arab countries man, you get tax free money.
you could pass off as an arab if you grow the beard a little.
It would still be high time for a kidnappin' if I had a beard...
Get a real job or open up your own business, nigga.
I'm going halfsies on a coffee shop now. grand opening next month.
I think I'm about ready to retire, actually.
Well the thing is, it IS a real job once you get in.
I know guys that work LITERALLY every day of the year when they want to, then take 6 months off.
It's the getting in part that's difficult but I'm working on it.
Man find a career with a pension, medical benefits, and good pay.
back when i went to school they basically taught us from a young age that you were shit if you didnt go to University and get a career like engineer, doctor, lawyer, basically anything that requires a degree and atleast 4yrs in University. They basically taught us to frown upon trades and labour and anything else. Well. We all grew up and realized it wasnt like that at all. Most people i know work in the trades of some sort. Most of them make more money than our friends with 4+yrs of University and degrees. I do know a few who got degrees and awesome work too but i mean the majority of people i know have found the trades to pay better. Hell i worked fucking concrete. No education needed really and i made more money per hour than most of the people i know. I have friends who just barely passed highschool and now make over 100g's/yr easy. And a lot of friends who spent 30+thousand on degrees and years in uni or college and make less than 50k/yr. Its not equal at all in Alberta. I think its a region thing. But trades are big in alberta and they have pumped bajillions into their trade and tech colleges. The oil industry runs that province and the oil industry has many different levels of trades and office jobs that offer a ton of cash for salary.
that being said im doing neither. Im trying to be an artist. Which the odds are pretty low for ever becoming famous or super wealthy from your art. Were all starving lol.
Stagehand has all that. Union work man.
And I hear ya Busta, I hear ya.
Starving artists are not so uncommon.
