Still kicking..just...

It's been 12 months now since I worked last and 10 months since I last received any benefits from the government, In Australia you only get the dole for 2 months then you are on your own.

Have had no luck in the last 6 months obtaining any more discs, which is a pity, I thought I was just getting good....

Ive had loads of people promise discs but it always falls though or they just "forget".

And Ive had a few thousand "tell me how you restore disc" emails That I don't reply too.
It took me years to do this, I had hoped at one stage I could do this professionally for a archive or a broadcaster or even for a small time CD company. But no... My work is obviously not good enough. so I suppose Ive wasted the last 10 or so years of my life, Ive enjoyed every minute of hearing new sounds on disc and restoring them, but at what cost..
Im now 36 and very unemployable, No qualifications to speak of and no trade.
I really don't know how long I can "hang on" to this shadow of a existence but I'll try,

I might have a look at some of the B-sides Ive never put up here before.
So stay tuned.
