I’m SUPER busy lately. Running parties, selling ads, putting the bi-monthly VICE cd/dvd together. At the end of September I’m getting trained to take over production of the magazine, which mainly means I collect ads and check specs, but I’m looking forward to learning more about how the magazine is put together every month.
My income directly reflects how many things I’m doing or working on so being busy means I’m making money which allows me to actually go do stuff like see a movie every once in awhile, go out for dinner, buy books I want, and do things like go to the ROM or the AGO, all of which I’ve done in the past month. Living on nothing was sucking ass there for awhile. Nothing to do, and no money to spend is no way to live.
Two of my best friends, Brayden and Dustin are leaving Windsor and moving in with Nick and I in Sept. I am stoked. I wish Dragan was moving here too. The overall forecast is looking good.
If you get the Sept issue of VICE, both Canadian and US editions, there’s a full page ad, and download card insert from eMusic that I sold and organized. It’s sort of an advertorial page, and I wrote the copy. There’s 25 songs available for download for free, and I picked the 12 songs that aren’t on VICE Records. I picked Suicide, David Bazan, the Haunted, Cat Power, Boyd Rice, Black Flag, Poison Idea, Iggy and the Stooges, and a few more. I think one of the great selling points of eMusic is their huge back catalogue of old, and hard to find, or out of print albums that you might have a hard time even finding to download for free. So my list was great songs that you might have a hard time finding or checking out otherwise.
And the Canadian edition of the July through Sept issues have an ad for Oligarchy Clothing I shot the picture for.
This is a really low res version of it. It kind of looks like shit here because it’s so low res. It looks much better in the magazine. The best would be getting it printed with gold ink so the gold the girls are wearing actually shines. I’ve gotta suggest that.
