slimtronic5k Working on storyboards for commercial work for a client in the HVAC industry. I cannot draw to save my life. Come to think of it, I can't produce a video to save my life. Wait... How do I still have a job...? #hack #hackjob #video #videographer #videoediting #multimedia #multimediadesign #videoproduction #multimediaproduction #workflow 3d

slimtronic5k Honored that my world is made up of quality people. Blessed to celebrate the marriage of two of my very best friends @brycelawrence92 and @brookelivie with a little stag party last night. Great times with good people. What a cool life!! #bachelor #bachelorparty #stag #stagparty #bros #brothers #family #irish #scottish #gypsy 1w

slimtronic5k The green room/dressing room at the venue @bradthebishop, @sheenabrook and I are performing at today is nicer than my house. Wonder if they'll let me move in here...? #GypsyNative #SeminoleCasinoImmokalee #seminolecenter #seminolehotelcasino #music #musician #livemusic #livemusician #entertainer #performer #gypsy #myjobisbetterthanyours 1mon

slimtronic5k I also had the chance to shoot my brother @tattooingbyjake last week (or so).. I've got so much respect for the tattoo world and the artists that drive it.
There's just something about Jake's concentration and focus on his art that I find very inspiring. It's honor to see this cat work, and I'm humbled to add his art to my collection! #tattoo #inkedforlife #tattooer #tattooing #photographer #photography #photolife #lenslife #model #blackandwhite #bnw #inspiration #hardwork #workethic #hustle #respect

slimtronic5k I'm not a dude who has a lot of "wants". In real life, I'm an incredibly simple man. However, I see this sweet van all around town and I desperately want it. Any locals know to whom this van belongs...? #sweetvan #van #custom #pimpmyride #hotwheels #leadingtheway #deeprootedjealousy 3mon

slimtronic5k In a strange turn of events, I've not had much of an appetite lately. I decided to put my lunch break to good use and I took the opportunity to have a nice stroll in the gorgeous 74° SWFL weather!
While I'm tired and sweaty now, I'm confident that this was a good decision. Not only was it good exercise (nearly three miles), it was a great chance to connect with nature and ground myself as much as I could. I've really been covered up by depression and anxiety the last few days and this walk definitely helped to clear my head a good bit.
I'm feeling much better now, PLUS since I just expelled around 500 calories, I've got enough room in my guts to crush this beautiful apple sitting on my desk. 😎 What are you doing today that will improve your life, whether it be a physical, mental or emotional improvement? - S

slimtronic5k My little nephew had to wait for the first snow day of the year to come into the world. But alas, he's here!!! Mr. Avett Lee Rocket Carter, 9lbs, 20" born at 5:22pm on January 7, 2015 after an incredibly short labor.

This dude isn't even a day old and he's still more awesome than pretty much everyone I know.

Haley [my baby sister] and Luke Skype called us last night so that we could see him. Haley must be the most graceful new mother ever! She was acting like she didn't even.. y'know.. just have a kid... Haha... Handled it like a boss! Baby and mommy are both healthy and happy, under the care of daddy's watchful eye.

If I may:

Dear Avett,

I'll be the first to admit that this planet can be strange at times. Life will not always end up as you plan it, but I will tell you this: if you work hard, roll with the punches, and use what you've been given to help those around you, you'll end up right where you want to be, young man.

Your mom and dad are two of my very best friends. They'll never steer you wrong. Trust me.

Never be afraid to stand up for what you believe in and for what is right and when given the option, always choose love.

There will be plenty of people that will tell you otherwise along the way, but truly I tell you this world is a beautiful place, and while you may not know it yet, you are the world's most precious gift. Don't waste it. Change the world, nephew.. I know you will.

Welcome to the party, Rocket! Strap in, 'cause it is going to be an awfully fun adventure!

Love you, buddy!
-Your Ride or Die Uncle Slim"

slimtronic5k Jam sessions with this fella are the best. He said "when we get home, I'm gonna start drum lessons because I wanna play music like you." @blacklightning05 really knows how to get whatever he wants from me. Haha.

Normal Slim Gillian
slimtronic5k I've traveled all over this land playing music, singing, telling jokes and stories for the last couple decades. I've played sold out shows and empty bars, football stadiums, arenas, pool halls, and hole in the wall joints. I've performed for a handful and for tens of thousands.
NEVER in my life have I had as much fun on stage as I did last night at Point Ybel Brewing Company with @bradthebishop and @sheenabrook.
There was something absolutely magical about the combination of this incredible venue, the party culture that they've cultivated, and our on stage chemistry that truly ignited the perfect night!
You can tell that Point Ybel Brewing Company has worked hard to create a following of people that have a passion for the art of beer and entertainment. These folks, even those that have never heard of GypsyNative, came ready to party.
The staff went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of and I'm pretty sure they all tipped us more than the rest of the crowd (which says a lot!!) Plus our backstage area was one of the sexiest places I've ever been in!
If you're in SWFL, DO NOT sleep on this place. Make it a point to check this place out. Point Ybel Brewing Company will change your life!! PLUS my dinner from 11:Eleven Café right next door was INSANE! (Just when I thought I couldn't love Christa Leigh any more, she goes and tells me that she has a gluten-free waffle topped with peanut butter, Nutella and bacon... ON THE MENU... C'mon, son.) I even got numbers from three hot chicks, one of which I proposed to in front of the entire crowd (including my actual, current, existing wife) so.. y'know.. husband of the year.... All in all, last night was one of the greatest nights of my life. I'm a richly blessed dude. Gos bless us, everyone!!

slimtronic5k I was just sitting on a bench outside of Target having a cup of coffee. I hadn't said a word to anyone, I was just sitting there deep in thought.
Not one but TWO older dudes and an older lady made it a point to stop and tell me to "get a damn job," "stop bothering hard working citizens" and to "have some respect" for myself.... I was too tired to actually engage them, so I looked at each of them and simply said "Happy Christmas" before getting up and walking back to my truck, exhausted from working three jobs and not sleeping for the last couple weeks.
Friends, let this be a lesson to not judge those around you. You may never know their story, or better yet you may never know just how much of an impact that a smile, kind word or thoughtful gesture can have on a person.
The world around you is so full of great adventures.... You never know when your new best friend is just sitting on a bench having a cup of coffee on their lunch break.
When given the option, always choose love. -S (ALSO.... A. Do I really look like that much of a homeless dude today...? And B. since when is the homeless look NOT a sexy look?!? C'mon, son...)
