umm… update?

Since this blog is about my life as a rockstar, not my social life, I can’t say much about today. Hanging with my girlfriend, going shopping, etc. Had a good day yesterday, played paintball for 6 hours, went ice skating…

IMPORTANT THINGS!

I wrote a short little riff this morning before lunch, but no recordings available just yet. Maybe soon… Depends if I can set up a small recording studio in my apartment. Anyway… More soon.

Back to Normalcy!

With the advent of the beauty that is 10/10 MB/s fiber optic internet come the reinstitution of my daily updates on this here blog! Just as a kicker for today, I’ll tell you about the terrible guitar sin I committed yesterday: I tuned my acoustic guitar down into drop C… *gasp* Yes, I know, that’s ungodly low for a cheap acoustic guitar from Kohl’s. Sounds ok, though. Been playing “Rose of Sharyn” a lot lately…

My apologies…

I would like to apologize for the 4-day vacation from updating my blog. I have a good reason, though. I’m moving to an apartment building in the city my school and my dad’s office is in, so everything is more convenient. I will likely be out of contact (internet-wise) for a while until I can get internet access at the apartment, so don’t expect many updates for a while during that time period. Here’s to new homes, new lives, and the one constant in my life: my girlfriend! Well, good night, internet!

Hooray for venting!

Ok, aside from my mom doing her usual yelling and screaming, my dad decided to be a… *ahem*… jerk. I KNOW he said “I’ll be back down in 5 minutes with a garbage bag.” More than 8 minutes later, he arrives with a full garbage bag (leftovers, empty aerosol cans, and smelly unknown material included, and not tied off yet), and throws it at me from across the room. Starts yelling at me and cussing me out about being tired of cleaning up after me, even though I already had my garbage ready to put in the bag. Right now, I’m to enraged to think straight. Such is the life of a rising star.

Random Post

This post is basically just a filler, because I need to have at least one post per day. Still working on the MySpace page, and I wrote a couple riffs today. Big fun. Also learned that bassoon and trumpet are not my thing. Decent at drums and violin, though.

Our resident HTML nerd (me) is working on some code for our myspace page, so watch for its release soon! It will be glorius!

Random Info

Had swim team practice today… I’m dead…

I also came up with some mediocre new riffs after school today. Nothing noteworthy.

I have decided, though, that I must send in a few demo tracks to some people in the recording industry (my mom has some connections). Can you say “ungodly amounts of practice and recording?”
