Trash Talk Episode 1 : Goals, also hello
So here we are at the long-awaited threatened road blog that we said we were going to put together one day. What better way to get started than while ON THE ROAD?
This is just a beginning post, and I'm not sure how much more data I have on my hotspot at the moment...so we'll make it relatively quick. Zak is driving currently. We're on our way to Champaign, Illinois.
Let's make the first post easy...let's talk about blog goals.
My goals with this blog include :
1. ...being able to relate to everyone we get to see through performing on the road on another level--even those in our home base that we don't get to see very often. We're very much living the vagabond dream, only in a Malibu Maxx (for the moment) and occasionally we get to shower. :P Maybe, through this, we can understand each other a little better.
2. ...to explore the intricacies of what it means to tour and how we do it. As far as I'm aware...and I could be terribly mistaken...we're the only sideshow that travels as often and as hard as we do--and it's not for a lack of effort, I'll tell you that much! ...but it'd be nice to be able to put some of these weird tour trivialities into writing.
3. ...promotion for Tinderbox Circus Sideshow. duh. But also to reach out and potentially get ideas or advice from people all over the world on our next move.
4. ...for fun! I've always enjoyed writing, and have always felt like it's been my best outlet--it's time to put that to the test and see if it's worth a shit.
