non-musical endeavors

This year I've already had two movies come out. One of which I have lines in. Pretty neat. I mean, I live in Los Angeles, you're supposed to do this kind of thing right?.. And hey, the phone's just not been ringing as often for guitar work, so why the hell not.
In addition I've launched an LLC with a friend/business partner based out of South Carolina. We're a small scale inventions firm called K&R concepts LLC. I've always leaned towards the entrepreneurial side, and have wanted to try something like this for a long time. We're developing two ideas right now that are both pretty solid. And it's nice to work with someone as thorough and obsessive about details as I am. Again, if you have the time, why not pursue it?
Think about this, what if you had no insecurities, and never second guessed anything you ever did, and just went for it. Well, there's any number of results that would come of this, one being, you could end up really successful.. Not too bad right? I'd also venture a guess that some folks have followed this path and ended up leaving a pretty nasty stain on our culture. But, you have to respect the commitment and work ethic of those that just go for it.
I'm going to strive to be like that. Just working my ass of and going for it until something hits.

I quit drinking a year ago and it was the best decision I ever made. Hangovers do not equal productivity.

Goals this year include:
More touring
Developing new musical projects
LLC owning at least one trademark, start patent process
T.D. record (I have no control over this but keeping my fingers crossed)
Make a million dollars for some reason.
