Disaster has struck again, and at the worst possible time.

Feeling inspired by Appleseed Cast and some other substances, I was all set to plug in and start writing some new songs. All my shit was laid out. I started plugging things in, and then I looked down... and saw a huge, gaping hole on my Line6 Delay Modeler.

Apparently, in the gear transfer from the gig to my house, one of the pedals broke off. It's totally fucked. So unless I can somehow get inside the machine and, without breaking anything, figure out how to re-attach it (assuming that "it" is still intact, which I'm really not sure it is), I have just lost what makes my one-man band a one-man band. The looper is dead. It'll cost me $350 to get a new one. I won't have $350 of disposable income for several months unless I start working 60 hour weeks, and if I start working 60 hour weeks, I won't be having any time to write any songs.

This is unbelievable. I'm beyond words.
