    Maybe it's because I don't use Spotify. I guess I'm old school now- I like to have the actual files.
    Means I need to look for high-capacity phones (or SD card support) and requires me to be a bit more selective on what I pick up and transfer over.

    Do you use Prime Music Unlimited or Google Play Music?

    It's the best of both worlds I've found. You can add and download files as needed as well as tap into their expansive libraries.

    Congratulations! I'm sure the guitar buying was fun while it lasted.

    I came into the office this morning to find it had been decorated - I guess as soon as December 1st hits XMAS MODE ENGAGED. I'm ok with this.

    Just ordered my wireless system, happy that I don't have to deal with stupid cables anymore.

    I read this at first as "desecrated" and knew I needed to reread it since you seemed so okay with it.

    I wonder if dyslexia is something that can develop later in life...

    I like the way you think, better make sure that's good and dry, though, before you go making a neck out of it.

    Yeah...I would love to start right away...but realistically I might have to wait several years.
    Bummer. I should have posted this in the "why are you sad right now?" thread

    Moved in to my first apartment last night! Was a pain in the rear carrying everything to the second floor but it went well. Woot!

    Currently selling some gear via Facebook and had a potential buyer contact me with a trade offer. We've both forgotten what the original offer was and have spent the last hour discussing similar bands we are into and getting on like a house on fire. Nice reminder why I still bother with music, because there's some people out there who genuinely kick arse :D

    Local promoter just announced that Russian Circles will be making a stop in Indianapolis. Finally.

    So hyped.

    As of Sunday, I'll now only two weeks away from owning my bass instead of a month. It's maddening sitting around waiting around for this police hold to be over, especially since I was able to pay for the whole thing already.

    My band is going to record coming january and we've just tried playing to a click track.

    It went really well. Which surprised all of us as our drummer barely ever practices, Let alone to a click. He really took to it from the first click onwards and i don't think i've ever seen him play beter.

    Maybe that's a sign that the next step is to start jamming/practicing with the click. Eventually start playing shows that way. The consistency helps prevent mistakes, and the set gets tighter overall.

    Honestly never thought of a click track that way before in my life...I always hated the shit out of them, because I felt it took that certain "Rock And Roll Groove Spirit Mojo Ghost Thingy" away from music, but apparently, it only amplifies that shizz. Thanks for the lesson.


    Happy because...well, reasons...who needs to know more? The Braille Dude got happy, so that is a win right there for the home team. :D

    Moved in my new appartment. Super happy about it. After years with roommates, I finally have my own place.

    It's one of the best feelings in the world, isn't it? Especially as a guitar player!
