Day 5 is on life advice. I am not one to look at for how to live your life, trust me. I’m still making loads of mistakes, and trying to figure it all out. I can give you 5 pieces of advice that just might make your life more interesting though. 
1. Trust yourself. You’re probably right. 
2. Never give up your child-like wonder, and ease of being amused. The world is a fascinating place, right down to the flowers growing out of the sidewalk. 
3. Try new things. A new food. A new hobby. A new piece of music. Don’t get stuck in a rut. You’re missing out on so much. 
4. Travel as much as you can. Even if you can’t afford to go to another country, go to another town or city. Every place offers something to discover. And you’ll definitely grow from the experiences you’ll have. 
5. Remember that sometimes it’s nice to be alone. Curling up with a good book. Taking in a movie that no one else wants to see but you. Strolling around town and popping in and out of places just because you want to. If you wait for someone to do something with, you’ll miss out on a lot of life. And alone is not the same thing as lonely. 
Today’s pen is the Ystudio Brassing. It’s beautiful, nicely balanced, writes without effort, and is going to be fun watching it naturally weather from use. The ink, Nick Stewart’s Randall Blue-Black, is not showing well on this paper sadly. It’s a fabulously rich blue-black, with a lot of character to it. It will come back around again, and you’ll see what I mean.

Today I went to my shop to prepare some shipments. I didn't turn the heating on, didn't lit the lights, no  music .... it all felt a bit sad and unreal. When all packages we're ready I just checked if everything was more of less tied up and then this happened: a RAINBOW In my store😀 just what I needed. A bunch if colors! This made my day! .

Nick Stewart of Power Trip melting faces at Come And Take It Live back in 2018! The savage slayers of the Lone Star State, Power Trip destroys the unworthy!

Peace be unto the, unless you want a piece of me. Whose side are you on? You can’t hide, you can’t run. You wage war on life. Logic lost in brainwashed minds. Storming Heaven, it’s not too late. Hit them hard, crash the gates. I see your way of life and I think it’s a joke. Don’t step out of line, you’re walking a tight rope! Before long I’ll be dead and gone. Locked up for the firing squad!

Currently spinning Power Trip's Opening Fire: 2008-2014, released by Dark Operative (@darkoperative). Pressed at Rainbo Records and on transparent red coloured vinyl. No information was released on how many are on that colour as a bunch of stores get random colours. I got this from Rotate This (@rotatethis) when it just came out on December 2018.

This release compiles Power Trip's EPs and compilation releases, all remastered by Arthur Rizk (@dehuman1zer). The vinyl release has better overall dynamic range than the CD and digital mediums to my ears. Included in this release is a killer cover song of Prong's Brainwave.  Some of their tracks, particularly Suffer No Fool and This World, leans a bit more  towards hardcore punk ala Cro Mags, but most of them are generally more crossover/thrash metal goodness. Album artwork illustration is done by Matt Stikker (@bargainbinblasphemy), which looks awesome and the photo shot in the insert is by Angela Owens (@angelaowens). Overall, this is a great compilation of the more obscure and hard-to-find Power Trip tracks. The remaster is done quite well by Arthur Rizk, which makes the tracks sounding quite different from the original sound. Fans of Power Trip who do not have this release or those who love crossover/thrash metal music will need to pick this up.

NICK STEWART: The Canyon Club. Williams, Arizona. A small bar in a Route 66 town kept alive by roadtrippers and tourists. The bartender draws and explains a triangle of vortices locations in The USA on a napkin, starting with Sedona. The drunk at the far end of the bar tells me he made over two-hundred thouuusshand dollahrs last year selling horseshoes welded together as crosses for the roadside shops. The younger guy on my far right in his clean pressed Circle S - all the frills - big ole bolo, and a George Straight Resistol, the dozer brim, is counting his tips from riding the rails with his six string all day, plucking for nostalgic travelers. Directly to my right, a native guy orders another round and I offer to pay. We get to talking, and he looks at my napkin. He goes on for the next thirty minutes about how to skin a goat.. ending with how to cook mountain oysters just right.. He mentions he’s Hopi... I mention some old Hopi stories I’d heard. He is more than familiar.. He continues about it for the next few rounds... Hopi prophecy warns of an End Time. The Earth will purify itself. Some will survive.. (continued in catalogue) ⠀

Nick Stewart Pioneer African American actor who founded Los Angeles’ Ebony Showcase Theater!
#BlackPeopleYouDontknow
He was born #HoraceStewart in Harlem, briefly trying his luck at boxing, took to tap dancing, and later made the rounds as a stand-up comic. #NickStewart used various names, including #NicodemusStewart, in a career that began in the 1930s and lasted for decades. #NickStewart made his first movie appearance in 1936’s #GoWestYoungMan.
 But, his life’s work was with the Ebony Showcase Theater, which he and his wife, Edna, founded in 1950.

He started the theater with money he earned playing the janitor #Lightnin’ on $AmosNAndy in the early 1950s. "His life was that theater." Actors such as John Amos, Nichelle Nichols and Isabel Sanford gained early experience in the mid-city theater, which performed shows from the The Odd Couple to No Exit to Carousel. It gave Blacks a chance to play non-stereotypical roles and show them as actors. Sometimes they were all Black casts, other times they were integrated casts. The Black stereotypes of Amos ‘n’ Andy have long since come under criticism. Of her father’s role, Valerie Stewart said he was a pioneer who came up from the streets of New York and it was "a part that was a steppingstone that enabled so many thousands of people to get opportunities."
#TodayInWhiteTerrorism
The #EbonyShowcaseTheater closed in 1996, after the Stewart family lost the building in a foreclosure sale, the building was demolished in 1998. The Stewart family blames the city and its community redevelopment agency for the demise of the building, and for shutting them out of plans to rebuild it. They’ve refused to let the new building bear the #EbonyShowcase name, and are trying to raise funds to build their own replacement. Stewart showed up in a wheelchair at the groundbreaking.

#HoraceNickStewart died of natural causes at his son’s home in December 2000 at the age of 90. His wife, sons Christopher and Roger, and daughter Valerie survive him.  #BlackKnowledge
