Lately I’ve been reaching out to local promoters via facebook so I can book show. My efforts have gotten me nowhere. Instead of messaging local promoters and venues, I’m just going to show the fuck up to their door and request a gig. This city sets up events for all sorts of aspiring artist and I’m finding it hard to get a show going.
Either A. I’m not trying hard enough or B. They really don’t wanna fuck with me.
Regardless, I have to get my voice heard because I made the realization that failure cannot be a real option. I don’t consider it real because everyone listens to music. If every human damn near listens to music, then my chances of success are greater than my doubts.
As a side note, shout out to homie with the blond hair at Heine Bros for hooking me up with a cup of coffee. I checked my bank account earlier and noticed I spent almost $60 on coffee last month. I’m not sure if this is an addiction of mine or if it’s because I really like this one chick who works behind the counter. Anywho, kudos to the homie.
Besides the free coffee, I want to do 50 performances this year throughout the Louisville Area. If anyone would like to help please let me know.

Here is a collection of music that I recorded in my dads garage while I was on vacation back in November. It was a very enjoyable time. I love to make music.
So just yesterday on May the 14th, I competed in the Red Bull Manny Mania, which is a skateboarding contest that is held every year is different cities. This was my first ever contest that I have entered and I was super nervous. Just to give you a little description of what the contest is about, it is a contest where you have to do manuels during the whole time you are skating. I would go into some detail on how the contest works but I’ll just leave you with a video to find out for yourself.
Anyways I was super stoked that I got to enter, although I had to wait on my father to come up there and help sign me up since I was under the age of 18, but the feeling I got sitting there waiting for my round or what they called “heat” to come up was nerve racking. I was in the last heat and I had enough time to practice in between heats. When it came up for my heat to go I went for it, I threw down every trick that came to my head. That hard part was trying to think of what trick to do after you landed one. To add to all of that we only had 8 minutes. So in those 6 minutes I was sweating hard, breathing hard and thinking my hardest. I land some pretty good tricks and got a lot of props from the crowd cheering me on and stuff. But sadly, I didn’t make it to the final round.
It was a pretty good experience, I just can’t wait for next year so I can compete again.
I leave you with this video of the Red Bull Manny Mania 2010 World Finals 2010. Its the same kind of skating I went through just with the world finalist.
This may be a little late but I went to the DVS Shoes and Matix Clothing Tour and it was awesome. I got to meet pros like Kenny Hoyle and Luis Tolentino. I even made a video of it to. Check it out!
