Drumming While My Computer Fries

September 3rd, 2007 Posted in Uncategorized

46th3.jpg I’m backing up my computer before taking it to Apple to hear the bad news. As that cliche goes, I can buy a better computer for less money than it may cost me to fix this one. A new computer would cost $1,099. A new motherboard for this one $1,200.

This is me at the Brazilan festival on 46th Street yesterday. My arm is almost completely back to normal. I drummed for hours and I was fine. Walking home I had a thrilling moment (for a musician). Someone saw my tshirt and yelled out, “Manhattan Samba! You guys playing the festival?” We’re known! What can I say, it was a pleasure. Someone wanted to hear us.

Ugh. Can’t stop thinking about the computer. On the one hand, a new computer is always fun, but on the other hand, I can’t really afford the expense. I’m not wealthy, you know. Universe? I posted that for your benefit. In case you’re listening. Or reading, I guess.

Further evidence of my distress: I bought Smarties to eat for dessert. After breakfast.
