I mentioned in an earlier post that I'm stepping down from performing with the band because the lifestyle (especially touring) is taking a toll on me.  Well, the band made me an offer I pretty much couldn't refuse.  While I would be stepping down from performing, I could still be their "PR Manager" and continue to help out with backend stuff like promotion, some bookkeeping, some PR, etc.  This way I'm still connected to the band (I'd be P.o.T. staff) but don't have to tour and all that jazz.  My tenure as a performer ended on good terms, the band likes and trusts me, they want to keep me on in some capacity, and it won't be the kind of time commitment of a touring performer.

Plus, though I'm a competent enough player, this kind of stuff is what I'm better at.  I always joke that it's never my playing skill that gets me gigs with bands, but rather that I'm responsible, accountable, dependable, and reliable.  Past bands have had superior bassists to me, yet I always get the callback.    

I like this- I can still be connected to local music (which I ardently support) without having to go on the road and repeatedly drag myself home at 3 in the morning with aches and pains and barely recover a week later.

Sounds like a good solution. An old editor-in-chief did something similar when he had to step down from his current position due to a growing lack of time and energy. Now he does some PR and some other small tasks, and we're glad he's still around because there aren't many dependable with the same amount of experience he has. We just have to make sure he doesn't keep on picking up new small tasks and slowly collect a workload the size of his old one ^_^'

A radical Islamist (Canadian citizen) hit 2 soldiers with a vehicle killing one of them and then later shot and killed by police two days ago.
A radical Islamist (Canadian citizen) killed a soldier on Parliament Hill then ran inside the Parliament where he was shot to death today.

God dammit...

(This is just after Canada agreed to join the fight with État Islamic - EI)

I think the only question, in light of Dincrest's recent decisions, is who's gonna be RPGFan's Token Black Guitartist NOW?

I like this, this feels like an appropriate and good 'promotion' of sorts.  Congrats Din, I hope you make the best of it and come back with the good news of interesting new 'haps'! :)

I'll always have haps.  Along with cycling et al, I will soon post haps in voice over adventures too.  One thing is for sure, I always stay busy.
