Coworker was playing Five Finger Death Punch from his cubicle yesterday, so today I'm playing Casiopea all day. Can we change this man? "It sounds like Sonic". Okay, that's a start.

Woo! I got the EWI 4000s on Saturday morning and I've been playing it a lot more than I thought (with a busy weekend)! I figured I'd sketch out a quick part of Eight Melodies from Earthbound; it's a good fit for my current skill level on the EWI (AKA none) and I wanted to see if I could work out a chill hop and/or lo-fi style project in the future (verdict: eh). Thanks again Robby! It's awesome. And it's been fun to learn an instrument again.

We're going to make the EWI a coast-to-coast Shizztrument

The appointment went way better than I could have hoped, and was overwhelming at first. I've never had someone use guided fantasy, let alone day one, to help me chill. Overall day is wonky. Glad this is finally happening though.

Welp, todays' the day, I finally have an appointment with a talk therapist at 2. Wish me luck! I haven't seen someone since 2015 and he was great but I couldn't afford it at the time. I have a psychiatry appointment booked for the end of the month too, there's so much going on chemically that has been a roadblock for, oh I don't know, the majority of my life?

Posting this because it's my 420th post and I want the Reefer Madness accolade. I'm Papahoodwinker (or Ian IRL). I found The Shizz completely by accident, Erich booked us for West 2018 and when randomly googling our band I found the West thread and people discussing the groups and it was a total "what the fuck, a Minibosses forum? I found these dudes when reading EGM in middle school".

I sat in new user purgatory until the night we played many months later and I approached Erich in the jamspace and let him know my handle and then I was good to go, and started to gradually post more and more. Over a year I really grew to love all of these conversations and who you all are, and by West 2019 it was Family Status.

I've been in bands and been into games and extreme nerd shit since I was a wee lad, but I was definitely fucked with and moved around quite a bit as a kid so once I had my high school glow up I kept it close to the vest and more hidden until my twenties. VGM is a HUGE part of me and I lurked online around OC Remix and other groups but it was the unity of Shizzies that really helped me fully embrace all of it and come to find I sort of vaguely knew a lot of you already or had been in the same space but just didn't know this group was a thing.

Now getting to see some of you on the west coast once a year is my personal vacation (and a few of you are actually local to me and have become really close friends too which is a blessing). My chops in playing and producing have definitely grown being here too!

Two weeks no alcohol today, officially the longest stretch in my adult life and I have had no urge which is wild to me. Ultimate test is playing a show tonight, "hurry up and wait" has always made it easy, especially with a 5 PM load in to go on at 9:15.

 
you did it!!

I did it! Kind of miraculous to think that, wow, you can be better at your craft when your edges aren't dulled
