[quote=“coonass”]every time i go to a music store, they don’t have what i want. if they ask the distributor, he doesn’t get it in.
i have a friend who knows somebody who knows somebody. same item, no problem!
this is the one thing that makes me tired about living here. even B&Q. maybe for people here just learning how to do things for themselves it’s “wow”, but for me, son of a 3rd generation builder (my dad is a man of many talents) B&Q doesn’t have a lot of really good stuff.
i really miss the “flow of goods” in the States. stores almost always are in stock. are there real problems with supply chain here? why is there so little variety in the kinds of goods here?
costco dissapoints me too. not ranting. just commenting.[/quote]
Common theme running through all your posts continues.
Hey, take a wild stab at what I’m getting tired of… You cry for help. People tell you they are listening and they will support you. You cry again.
Anyway, I thought the ONE thing that makes you tired about living here was… Tai Ke men, Tai ke culture, people staring at you, women who are teases, women who are whores, your womans attitude to you, your womans father, the quality of guitars, the treatment of foreign artists, the fake nature of Taiwanese stars, your house being a waste of money, being 40, people who own bars showing you disresect, your job, that school with the big windows, professional assassins being after you, that guy who is following you who may work for the govt., the govt. deliberately, secretly and systematically holding you back, … Have I missed anything? Oh yeah, not being able to order the specialist music and wood you want from mainstream stores.
Let’s look at todays MOST important of issues… You can’t get the music you want in a shop, and a mainstream hardware store doesn’t carry the specialist equipment you desire.
Seriously, who will give a shit about these issues?
The way you view Taiwan is your biggest hurdle. Shit happens the world over. The measure of the man is in how he deals with the shit.
How can you keep struggling like this man? Seriously. Music and wood.
