While I Was In
Monday, June 06, 2005
It took six hours on Friday night, but it was well worth it. I finally have my home office complete and it looks amazing. With seating for six (meaning plenty of room for meetings) and a place for everything, I’m thrilled with the way it turned out. The living room also looks amazing as I now have two, count ‘em, two leather sofas in there and I decided to use my old corner desk as an end table that acts as an elbow between the two sofas. Despite moving everything away from the wall it really seems like I have significantly more space than before. Last, but not least, the bedroom is coming along really nicely, as well. I say coming along because there’s still something missing. I’m not exactly sure what, but I know that I should add one more thing. Getting my living room chair into the bedroom was probably the hardest task as it technically didn’t fit. I spent a good amount of time playing with angles and seeing what I could do and just as I was getting most frustrated I leaned on it and it slid in. I took a step back, fairly shocked that it slid in so easy. I figured, rather than question how I should just set up the chair. When I did I noticed there were white paint chips along the sides. I no longer wondered how it got into the room.

With my place now set up with a more professional air to it I can already feel my professional confidence rising. It’s now very obvious that I’m a freelance writer. Everything in my life is now perfectly set up for this. It no longer looks like, or feels like, this is something I’m doing to pass the time. I know I still have a few friends who think I’m nuts for living my life this way, but I could also say the same thing about them.

Speaking of friends, a friend and I went to Southport Brewing Company Saturday night to have a few beers and check out the scenery. It was funny, all the guys were dressed exactly alike, polo style shirts with pastel colors, and all the girl were at the bar thinking they were the greatest thing to walk the face of the earth. As my boy put it, we had a lot of people in there who thought they were cool because they could order a drink. Overall it’s kind of sad to see what we go through to try to hook a member of the opposite sex. It seems we try to fit in as much as possible, which, personally, I feel is crazy. Why do the trendy things if they’re not who you really are? I prefer wearing a T-shirt and jeans, or khakis a lot of the time, so it shouldn’t be hard to guess what you’ll see me in at the bar.

On a completely different note, I’m glad Entourage came back strong last night. I was worried the show would have a sophomore slump. Actually I just didn’t think any show could keep up with their first season pace of hilarious scripts. Good to know they’re still on point. Lisa Kudrow’s new show, The Comeback, was also pretty good, and pretty original as well. If The Comeback has even a two year stay on HBO and she works that character like I know she can Kudrow will be drawing comparisons to Steve Martin in terms of how she can make people feel about a character.

Work will be intense this week as I’ve already scheduled two interviews and I’m workin on scheduling four more. I’m a little disappointed at the response from a few magazines, but what else is new. Writing won’t be my only form of work for the week, however, as I’m also working on securing a clothing sponsor for either The Cut, or me. Personally I’d love to have a clothing sponsor but I’m pretty humble about my accomplishments, what I do and where I can be seen. I really don’t feel comfortable talking myself up in that way, but if it can net me a clothing sponsorship I’ll do it.

B-Lister Nation
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
