Happy Autumn, LairCronies!  Before I leave for Miami, there to embark into Hurricane Alley (aka the Caribbean Sea) in a few days, I need to figure out how to restart a previously Failed crowdfunding campaign.  While in Hurricane Alley, the MS Regatta will be my (and my mom's) home away from home for a couple of weeks; and when we're not doing land excursions and swimming, I hope to spend some time outlining future plans and goals for promoting my music.  For Realz.  Since a close friend of mine has become Accomplished at fundraising for Various humanitarian causes, I need to enlist his help to raise around $20,000 for music recording, publication and promotion, which would include traveling.  Dammit, I'm not getting any Younger in this universe; so it's time to Just Do It Already™.

In reference to my Previous post (the still-in-progress To-Do List), I need much of the following, and more Besides...

  • New guitar strings

  • New gig bag

  • New guitar case (hard case)

  • New fiddle strings

  • New musician's business cards

  • Duplicate EP CD's

  • Now, the updated Open Mic tour info can be easily Had online for free, of course.  And I can design my own business cards, stickers, flyers, etc.  But there is the matter of...

  • Transportation (I'm thinking of whatever deals are Available via Greyhound and Amtrak);

  • Lodging (easily Obtainable online);

  • Portable Recording items... Zoom H2 and Zoom H4N come Recommended (by at least one Local club booker/open mic host).

For Social Media bells and whistles, I'm currently in need of...

Overall, I want to make more money because I want to travel more often, especially for Musical, Photographic and Archaeological purposes.  That is to say, the businesses I want to work in, as my own boss.  I can't do too much of that Yet without more money, though; so I must do some fundraising First.  And since I am Jinxed at making and raising money, I need to enlist another Trusted individual to manage that sort of thing.  Why?  Because I refuse to resign myself to always being Broke, Unknown and Unfulfilled, just so whatever Cosmic Jerk is screwing with my life can get its own fucking way.  So there.
