    Drum tracking is done! Now on to editing..... hopefully my drumming isn't so bad as to be a nightmare to edit this time. :lol:

    Yeah. Last year I was coming up with single riffs that I really enjoyed but nothing was really connecting together. I've nearly got three full tracks roughed out in the last couple of weeks, just need to tab them out, practice the shit out of them and record :)

    My Ormsby got delivered yesterday :D (by mistake)

    Im leaving this Island were I live, and it was prob a miscommunication between the two of us, but basically they should have kept the guitar, they tried to stop the delivery but the delivery company fuck it up and couldnt stop it, so I get the guitar YAY :) ..... but only for a few days, as it has to be delivered back :(

    thing is because Im moving across the country to Perth to work for Ormsby full time :) :) :) :D :D :D Im so fucking stocked!!!!

    an opportunity opened in their shop, I happen to be open to get out of this place Im living (which I knew it was for a short time), so YAY :)

    I cant believe it, and so excited. Im starting formally with them right after NAMM. I was already going to NAMM with them and Sully Guitars in order to take some photos, videos, help, hang, ect, as I did last year so that was already planed from months ago, but this job is fully new :)

    cant belive it......


    and for the Mods, I jsut want to keep things right, so please PM or let me know if I need to change my signature or something. I wont be promoting/selling the brand, I have been trying to behave that way for a while now. Im only replying questions I see with the knoledge I have. I would still be posting from myself and not from a brand pov/representative/whatever.... I want to keep being "me"

    Bought a Sous Vide for Christmas and made a new york strip steak that was seriously amazing. Never could nail good medium rare before and the sous vide is fairly idiot proof so its winning on many fronts.

    So you're 21 and they still fit? Whoopty-doo.

    (All sarcasm aside, you didn't tell us what the year difference is between 18-19 and today, hence my sarcastic comment)

    I'm fucking terrified of hitting thirty, purely because I've had incredibly good luck with my health and weight and I know that won't last forever :p

    I'm nearly 27 too but i'm mentally stuck to 14.
    Asked to a friend how does It feel to be 30; he said is like being a teenager but with back pain.

    30 doesn't scare me at all, not sure why so many people are. If you play your cards correctly, your 30s are just like your 20s but with actual spending money. Now if you spend your 20s getting married and having kids, then yeah, I'd be scared of my 30s.

    For most people it's scary. That's typically when you pretty much need to have a locked in career or at least the bones of one. It's also when your body can start failing, which is scary in and of itself, but if you don't have either a good job or insurance (typically a combination of the two) it can be difficult getting the care your aging body needs.

    That's fair, I guess I'm just in a good place at only 23 (almost 24). Really the only thing that scares me is body, but something like that can always be worked on.

    I'm definitely scared of 30 and in general at my age (28), but it's pretty much my fault. :lol: I was pretty directionless out of high school and ended up being a dropping out of college for awhile. Now I'm on track for my bachelor's by the time I'm 30, and I chose a field where I shouldn't have much trouble getting a job after graduation, but my brain is still going "what if shit doesn't work out", and can't really comprehend the idea of working a well-paying "adult" job, instead of in restaurants. And no health insurance right now, of course. :lol:

    I'm about 2 weeks away from becoming 30 and I can't decide what to feel about going into 30s at this point. I like the idea of "it's like your 20s but with money" so... I guess I'll run with that. :lol:

    Dividing up your life by 10s is pretty arbitrary though - going from 20s to 30s is not really a milestone in my mind. If it must be a dividing line of some kind, I prefer to think of it as being old enough to have established yourself (your job, your hobbies, your social circles, etc) but young enough to now do something with what you've established. Maybe it's a decade of productivity.

    Yup this is exactly how I view it. I think it really depends on the person and how they live their life though. Many people enjoy their 30s more than their 20s because of their view on life.

    Listening to Kezia again for the first time in AGES.
    I never stopped liking it, but it was one of those albums that you just kind of stop listening to because you practically memorized it, you know?

    So now that it's been a few years, I put it on at work today and god damn, I forgot how amazing this album actually was. Looking back, I can totally see how it shaped my taste in music too, since it was one of the first "heavy" albums that I really went in deep on. Without it I probably wouldn't have wound up down the rabbit hole that led me to this site :lol:

    That's awesome man! Perry seems like a great guy to work with and from what I know of you from your postings here, it seems like you'd make a great fit. Super excited for you man, that sounds like a killer upgrade.

    Yeah, I know those feels. I've been exactly 116 lbs for the last 10~12 years, and my diet is very, very poor. I feel like any day now it's all going to catch up to me with force :lol:

    Original Kezia or remastered?

    It lacks some of the rawness of the original, but I've come to really love the remastered, especially since the opening of Bury the Hatchet is now audible and not ear-shatteringly loud :lol:
