Static and the Nuclear Pussycat
So, as I’ve previously posted, I’ve been working on trying to help my homies get new or better gigs, as part of my own little personal networking challenge, and giving back in my own crazy way.
I also had a little problem with static cling today, and still have the problem of a nuclear cat. If you follow me, or my cat Bob, on Facebook, (he has quite the following) you already know this. But instead of viewing both problems as problems today, I instead thought–hey, if I ever started a band, especially today, I could call it Static and the Nuclear Pussycat. That’s pretty cool.
Ok, I know what you’re thinking…Albert, you’ve officially lost it. But I really do have a point, and here it is: problems and change are inevitabilities in life. Stuff happens. (Also another great band name…but I digress.) Change is hard. But, if there’s a way you can make it fun, in your own zany flavor, while it won’t be easier, it might be a little more fun. At least it is for me…in my head.
I also posted tonight a great quote by Dolly Parton on my facebook page. It is this: “Find out who you are and do it on purpose.” Whether that’s starting a band, (but of course using another band name than the 2 I invented…haha), transitioning through a job or career change, or dealing with some other challenges, think of Dolly’s quote. It will help get you through. And if that doesn’t help, take your problems and turn them into something you can laugh at. It will hopefully be cathartic for you. It certainly is for me.
And if I do ever form that band, hope you come out to the show!
