At least I didn't. For some odd reason, The Monkees (the 1960s television show) was on tv when I was a kid and I sometimes watched it. Not enough to tell you what a single episode was about but enough to tell you that I watched it as a kid.
I thought it was on Nickelodeon but no. According to Wikipedia, it enjoyed a brief revival in 1986 on MTV.
Only 58 episodes. You usually need about 100 episodes to be considered for syndicaiton. But MTV was doing wacky stuff back then. Stuff that the young people enjoyed.
Actually, maybe it was Nickelodeon. Wikipedia says that it was also shown there.
Anyway, the Monkees weren't about music. They were about rebellion, about political and social upheaval.
I just realised that I don't have work for the next two weeks. Well, I'm working one day. But that's not good. I need to contact some more people. Drum up some business. But actually, this would be a good time to look for flats, should any decent flats become available. I haven't seen any in over a month.
I'm booked for three straight weeks after that, though. It's just one job, though. One big job.
Going to go the bank tomorrow, probably. Try to submit these documents again. I have tomorrow off. I had a job but it cancelled so at least I get the cancellation fee. I should charge more, and I can charge more, but it's £100 for doing nothing.
I mean, if I was getting work five days a week, and it all cancelled, that would be like £26,000. That's pretty sweet. That's £26,000 for doing NOTHING.
Man, putting it that way, I really need to look for some more business. I've been holding off on contacting new people because I thought that I pretty much had the amount of work that I want (about three days a week on average). But LOADS of stuff gets cancelled. So I could book stuff for five days a week and still probably end up working only about three days a week.
So yeah, definitely. During this two week break, I should contact some people. Just pick a nearby town and contact everyone in that town.
