Ok, maybe not ever, but probably for a year or so. As you know I'm leaving for my world trip a week from today, so this will be the last Tazeroke I'm a part of for a while.
It will continue on with my friends Doug and Clint, but I won't be there to experience the majesty.
For those of you who don't know, Tazeroke is a thing I invented where people challenge each other to sing karaoke, and whoever sings their song worst gets tazed on stage. Somehow no one has shut us down.
Anyway, it will be January 1st, 2008 at Shakespeare's Pub on sixth street. A few blog readers came by the last show, which was really cool. Hope to see you there and make my last tazeroke the best one yet. I personally guarantee that there will be people tazed.
P.S. This is one of the few times, if ever, that I've returned to few a comment about something I've written. I'm whipped.
I have two weeks left in Austin and ten days in Boston. When we first decided to go on the trip six months ago it seemed like it would take forever. Now every day seems to fly by before I can make any progress on my list of stuff-I-must-do-before-I-go.
Of course, the one thing I've had no problem doing is buying the gear necessary to leave. I'll post a complete list of every single thing I'm bringing with me... some of which will probably surprise people.
We still haven't found anywhere to live in Panama yet. I send e-mails to people on Craigslist in Panama, but nothing good has surfaced yet.
The original title of this post was, "The Reason We Didn't Meetup When I Visited Your City" and it was geared towards explaining what it's like to be busy with lots of correspondence. The post grew past this. This one will be useful for people who expect that they might have huge correspondence increases in the future - rarely do people talk bluntly about what it's like. It'll also be useful for the expansive sort of person who reaches out to people they don't know, so you can understand the mindset of who you're reaching out to. It rambles a little bit in the middle, but I think the mindsets and details could be useful for you.
The Reason We Didn't Meetup When I Visited Your City...
...is because I'm disorganized and you didn't drop a line again.
So, I get a lot of correspondence. Which is great. I really dig that. A couple days ago, I had a great Skype chat about international investing and business expansion with a really smart and cool guy out in SF, and then I met three people locally in Tokyo who are all exceptionally cool guys. I learned a lot, and I think so did the guys I got to hang with, and it was good. I like seeing other people thrive and make money, and got to have some good talks on business and entrepreneurship with everyone I met - I think everyone can hustle a bit more cash here or there.
I really enjoy that. I like meeting smart and enterprising people. I say that everyone - on my site, in posts, on my "About" and "New? Start here" pages,
