OK, I know this is stupid, but if my brain keeps going on like this I'm going to stab it with a pencil. I live in New Orleans right now, where there is no original music scene to speak of, but is very cheap to live. I've been struggling to put a band together for 10 years (doing weird prog music; it's hard), and nothing is going well for me in this city or others. I'm considering giving up. Now I'm bored with New Orleans, but I've got alot of money saved up and I could put a hefty deposit on a house, and rent out half of it, and slowly buy more rental properties and become independantly wealthy. Or I could move to NYC and give my dreams one last shot. What do you think?
