Check one two, is this mic on!? Is it still 2020 and are we still dealing with the pandemic? Unfortunately yes and there doesn’t seem to be any end in sight but that doesn’t mean that everything stops. With the exception of heading out to do my duty and vote and few visits to the local record and comic shops, I’ve been in the lab in create mode trying to gather content and focus on projects that’ll move me into 2021 with ease.
It’s actually been a rather productive year regardless of what’s going on and already I’m asking myself, where did the year go!? Regular mix uploads on my NerveFM streaming app, two 45’s with RBMBoots, a few IG Live interview features, an FM radio mix guest spot, 2 print magazine features, 2 upcoming cassette releases, a double feature film screening, panel discussion with the Philadelphia Asian American Film Fest and the re-release of my Always Good line of t-shirts and hoodies should just about round out the year. It’s definitely been a busy one and one that I most likely wouldn’t have been the same had we not been in this situation.
Regardless of how we end 2020 though, 2021 will still be much of the same. The pandemic will still be in effect, businesses will continue to struggle and / or close their doors and artists will continue to find ways of creating art, even it that means finding another source of income to keep them afloat. This time has definitely been rough on us all and the only thing that we can do is to keep moving and pushing forward.
Here’s to hopefully a better year ahead that moves in the right direction with the hope of seeing at least a little bit of light at the end of the tunnel.
