How has time changed for you over the past year? Some days, when I’m busy teaching, grading, cleaning up the Hellhole, and caring for the Hell spawn, it seems to fly right by, leaving me wonder where the Hell all this free time is? Then there are days when I fell it drag right along, as if the seconds are actually ticking backwards. What are we going to remember about this time a decade from now? Is there anything you have been putting off that you really need to get to before we all head back out into the world we think we knew? How do you want to approach the post-pandemic world? Will you rush back in, jumping at the chance to go everywhere and see everyone? Or are you going to slowly ease in, keeping your mask on deep into 2021, and quietly judging anyone who has the gall to walk around without a mask?
What’s it going to be?
I received my two Pfizer vaccinations a few weeks back, with no side effect besides a minor soreness at the injection site, and I’m keeping my mask on until we’re given the go ahead to take it off. I don’t want to be the guy who can’t get sick, but carries the virus and gets others sick. Not on my watch!
Since San Francisco is moving closer to the yellow tier, this means that Radio Valencia is getting closer to opening our new studio at 3227 22nd Street. This is a storefront location, and I cannot wait to start broadcasting my show live from there. I hunger for the energy of our own studio once again, interviewing people, getting loud, and letting my hair down. Don’t get me wrong, the concept of doing my show from my bedroom is oh so much fun, but being reminded that it’s Bodhi’s bedtime, and not to talk so loudly is really putting a crimp in my style. KnowWhatIMean?
That being said, I’m really excited about this recent show of mine. I was off last week, so I had a lot of music saved up to share with you all. I think I painted the scene nicely. You let me know what you think. Feel free to leave a comment, and thanks for all those who chatted me up this past Monday night. Keep it comin’.
