Thanks Anonymous. I appreciate it.
My life is alright. I hope yours is too.
I've been working 14 ~ 16 hours a day, everyday for the last 5 weeks or so. Then, during that time, I had a hellacious gout attack! I don't know why, I hadn't been drinking and have been basically doing the raw food thingy. Maybe it is stress... At least, that's what the doctor said.
Then, as soon as my gout went away, I went back to my exercise routine: 90 minutes speed walking.
That was a mistake.
Because of the gout, I had been walking funny for a week and my left knee hurt from that. So, while my knee was out of whack, I went for a 90 minute walk again. On the way back, darn if my knee didn't start burning. Uh, oh... Felt like I was getting water under my left kneecap.
Within a day, my knee had swollen up and hurt like heck, but I kept working.
That was another mistake.
By the third day, I couldn't walk and was in bed with my knee under ice packs and elevated. Still was doing work from the computer.
In the meantime, I completed several important tasks and nearly completed or completed a few videos.
Video screen capture of Neatbeats, "Snakey Baby"
One of the ones that was finished was for a really awesome Japanese Beat Group called, "The Neatbeats." It stars Japan's best authentic beat music group, Mina Shirakawa, Japan's Sexy and Hot New Pinup girl and a funny sumo wrestler. I have my "Hitchcock style cameo" right at the very start (I'm the guy in the red sweater). For some reason, I can't link that video but you can view that video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1L3leqBg-8
Besides these things, I've been doing my regular jobs and trying to get stuff done.
I have also organized another free concert for people to enjoy. I think these summer festivals whereby people spend $500 to $1000 to go to a festival to see bands with crappy sound, bad food and stand in long lines to go to the toilet are way over priced.
On June 23, 2014, I have set up another killer show that is "invitation only" limited to 250 guests.
The show features the above mentioned Neatbeats. Here's a different video of theirs
The Neatbeats can easily sell out 500 ~ 600 people venues at $60 a ticket. Think people will wanna see.
Also Japan's power drum and bass duo, Moja will perform.
Julie will perform...
and also Mz. Moxy from London in her Japan debut.
It's a killer show and I hope that you can attend. I think it will be one of the best and most memorable shows of summer 2014.
So, besides trying to be a father and husband, that's what I have been doing...
I hope to blog again because there's so much nonsense going on right now: Ukraine, stock market, Abenomics, Justin Beiber that the world's a ripe grape ready for the picking for some blogger...
But for now, I've got to get back to work.
See you soon.
