Sam my thoughts and prayers will be with you as this struggle continues. I hate to see this kind of misfortune happens to good people like yourself. Life is full of bullshit but here is a place where true friends are waiting when you need them.

Isnt that the truth brotha :tu
This is basically the only place i brought this public because i would only hope another would do the same in need of assistance. Thanks man, your to kind

Finally filled out all the paper work for my insurance claim, They were saying that they do alot of programs which lets say.. a guitar.. etc was stolen, instead of putting cash my way, they try to replace the actual item. So lets see what happens, i would be ecstatic if my guitar would be replaced for what it was but the memories are long gone with it. If i come to get a new axe one of these days ill have you guys be the first to know ;)

Will Whore for Cigars
Hey bro,

Not quite what I was expecting to read on one of my first views after my hiatus. Hopefully things will turn around. Sounds like I need to make a trip out.
:tu

Well here is the long stressed upon situation i have been holding back on club stogie for awhile now.

The 8th of July i was burglarized at my very own... very new apartment. I left for class at 8am in the morning to get to class a bit early to do some prep work for service. Went to another root canal/dentist appointment, arrived home at no later then 2:30pm. I walked up to my apartment door as normal, had to actually use my key to enter ( door being locked as nothing happened).

I walked in, as nothing new, looked at my desk to the right of me where my laptop sat... noticed it not being there... im standing there... dumbfounded looking in my mind.. where did i put it?
My computer case... The cigar lounge... my room?
- THATS when i opened my mine to the larger picture... i just gradually looked threw out my main room in my apartment still in the door way... Guitars... T.V.... electronics... everything... gone.

Went to the front desk f*cking HOT! Asking what will be done ( i never had a chance to get renters insurance havent been here for more then a month) And all they could say is.. Well.. did you call the police?
i replied NO, i didnt know what to do, so i called them, and 2 and a half hours later an officer arrived.

By this time i had a small list of what was missing for the officer and his report. He searched around, notice no sign of break in... but before he came an elderly man that lived under me noticed a guy jump from my balcony ( 2nd story) at about 1pm.. im guessing he came in... and left after locking the doors as if nothing happened.

All the officer could have thought was a former key holder... and he filed a report, and that was that, i know damn well im not getting anything back, or anything good will come of this, but until it does.. i guess im starting over =]

( after the event i did rechange my locks on my own, apartment is doing nothing for the losses or the sum of money that i payed to rechange the locks)

-at the moment my only concern.. All of my music i have ever had... is gone, all of my PERSONAL Music.. Recordings... Lyrics.... Rough drafts of original songs, the entire evolving manner that happened to all of my music Gone.... All of my personal photo albums that i have ever taken my entire LIFE digitally, Music shows/ Live recordings/Photography/Friends and Family... Gone for ever. All i have to say is, i guess this is time for me to start over...



Helpful Friends
-I have been very fortunate to have the friends i have no threw this community, to date my dear friend Andy( Dooge) has been so helpful to my situation, ever sense i have moved into this new housing, he and his wife have helped me out wonderfully i dont know how i will ever repay them, But he has basically built a desktop for me to use from the ground up, without his help i dont think i would be able to get on here for.. quiet some time.

-And as well my cigar buddy from Wisconsin that i met threw Andrew ( scottishsmoker) and St. Croix Cigars Mike ( beagleboy) While he was in vegas for the RTDA, he heard of the conflict with me from Andrew, and entirely went out of his way to purchase a XBOX 360 for me to have and use.... Im not sure how i can ever accept such a gift from a guy i barely know, but thank you Mike, you literally blew me away from your generosity!


Ending credits
To end this post, id like to say, Please.... your sympathy is not needed, it is true that with out meeting a few great cigar guys in the vegas area, this city has done NOTHING but horrible things for me... Physically and mentally... nothing good has truly came out of this venture from my past living situation but my schooling/ knowledge and great friends or this would have been the worse thing i have ever ventured out to do in my entire life.

I just wanted to let a few of you guys know well, just why i havent been on as much as i have, and the rough things that have happened on my part. Not sure really what to do, but wait for things to turn around.

I would like to thank all members of club stogie that has touched my life in some way,shape or form, you are basically all i have had sense being here, with out you guys i am not sure what i would have done, You have always been there threw the rough times with great assistance and condolence, and as well the good times of my past and first year being here with you all... Thank you, but dont let this distress you... I guess the worst of things have happened though i thought they never would, but they have, not either things get worse, which they continue to... or they get better in some way, i guess, Now... i play the waiting game :tu

Sorry I'm late to this. I do hope that somehow this turns out to have a somewhat happy ending, little hope as I know there is for that.

But at least I hope you get your music back. That is what you really can't replace.

Its something i cant replace... and have to come to terms that it is long gone, and no way its coming back basically... Pictures.. photography, live video shoots, shows... lyrics, music drafts, Boo ya- done and done-

Time to rebuild.

And thanks again Hoosier!

Hang in there Sammo! Great news on the externship. Hopefully, that will open a few more doors! Keep the positive attitude and things will work out. But I am saddened to hear that the music will not be recovered. :confused:

thats the shame of thief's.. they never know what it is they really take, and how much of an in pack it has on the owner, cost is never an issue, its things that will never be back in there lives... and it just drapes great sorrow over me, but my hopes are high, but not so high, that if something adds onto the shit.. i wont be able to take it, So im ready with open arms.. if im meant to deal with even more hardships... well.. Bring it on! ...Things should get better:mn
