» My mom express-posted my portfolios to me on monday which means today and probably tomorrow I have to hang around the house waiting for them to show up. Doubly annoying as I don’t think I’ll be doing anything with them before we move into our new place anyway. I think it made my mom feel helpful and like I’m being proactive about looking for work. Speaking of portfolios and being proactive, I made a temporary portfolio site at carbonmade.com visible HERE. » I got out of the house yesterday. I hadn’t done much exploring of the city last week so I went looking for a few of the record stores I’d found online. I was curious about She Said Boom Records and Books and it was relatively decent for a small, purely used-product store. There’s another location in Roncesvalles I might check out later when we live on that side of town. The other shop, Around Again, which got some good reviews online, was closed as it appears to be for half the week — something the reviews failed to mention. I walked around the outskirts of Chinatown a bit hoping to find a cheap gong. I did not, but I did find a nice large sheet of handmade paper.
