V did four presentations this week, three of them in two days, two in one day. He is pretty darned beat, except the feedback is so gratifying.
The last one was a history of R&B, with the New Orleans focus, for a class of undergrad Tulane music students. They. Went. Wild.
Now he's been in the studio all day doing the mixes for the last few songs he didn't get finished mixing in August. He's in a pretty good mood, despite HIS computer's screen detatching from the laptop body. Good thing a portion of the royalties have arrived at ye agent's, which they deposit tomorrow so he can draw on these for a new thing this weekend. Then we go back to MD.
I've gotten sick. Nothing has happened that I was expecting to accomplish while here excep the haircut and seeing a couple of friends. I'm feeing truly rotten. And my laptop, equipped with Windows 7, which MS didn't bother to make compatible with older router protocols lost its wireless connectivity. So I can't get online with it. I guess I could if I jacked directly into the router or replaced the router, neither of which I feel up to doing or feel like doing at all. Besides, then I'd have to disconnect the desktop here in NYC from the router, and maybe the new router wouldn't be compatible with this old XP Pro system. Since I plan to be living mostly in MD for the next few months I don't want to disturb the home system right now.
Gads computer eat our lives because the goddamned manufacturers and developers do shitty jobs at their jobs.
