You can't make a post like that and not say what it is you bought!
It was a EBMM JP-7
managed to sketch out some rough ideas for a couple songs. also got a new coffee mug:
I got lucky being a bit lazy at work Doing a project for a customer, our backend guys did some stuff that I should've implemented in the mobile clients already at the end of last week, but I had a lazy day on Friday and didn't get it done. Today our project leader was showcasing the project to the customer, and the backend implementation was broken, so the admin interface of the app (which is a web-app) didn't work at all, but he was still able to show the mobile client because it was using static placeholder data
so I started talking about it on the weekend tread and went "off topic" so I jsut cut it and past here instead lol:
apart from playing music my other big hobby is to dance salsa and other latin styles. Lucky in the city I am theres a good social circle of parties to go to. So this weekend had two pretty good ones
also on the Saturday one I got to dance with a girl I have a crush on. Long story short, Ive seen her around in the parties and only got to dance with her pretty recently as every time I get the courage to go and ask her, shes already dancing. But this time not only I got to dance a few songs, but she asked me for one of those.
though that was pretty good, but today she added me on facebook. So yup, Im pretty happy atm
it might sound pretty small thing, but for me its a small win
First short hike w/ dog this season. The hottest its getting is mid 90s and that's totally all-day doable.
Also brought the Mongoose MTB in for a tuner up and some new flat grips. Went with bright red so it looks like a Walmart special. Hope to get it back today or tomorrow.
I found a ENGL savage 120 Mark I in fantastic condition for $1350 on the facebook marketplace with the Z10 floor controller. The guy selling it was a real cool guy with similar musical taste. I've wanted one of these since I was 16 (I'm 30). After 8 years of a digital only rig (axe fx II) I'm so happy to be back to tubes and amp in the room. Plus I still have the axe so I can use 4 cable method with the savage.
Also got 2x12 vertical mesa cab with a v30 and a blown v30. I'm replacing the blown v30 with a Celestion G12K 100 tomorrow to complete the rig. Excitement*
Getting my first tattoo next week! I always wanted to get inked and have no idea why I waited so long.
Jazz V sold! Means I get to go shopping as soon as the payment clears!
This happened. The second night we were pretty much in the front row in front of the stage. I didn't have my phone with me though, so no pictures.
Finally wired the bridge pickup [EVO7] to the volume knob>jack on the gutted 1527 i've had layin' around. Now it's a metal machine.
It's finally happening. Jeff Lemire's run on Bloodshot was killer, I can't wait to see it on the big screen.
So I haven't been in an actively gigging band for quite awhile, but recently my brother and I struck things up with a drummer from our old band from about a decade ago, who is by far the best drummer we have ever played with. Still have yet to officially ask him to jam with us once more, but things are looking good, so hopefully we can get something going and maybe even be ready to gig by next summer if all works out. Nice to have some hope for the future again.
EDIT: Old live video of our last band with this guy on drums, to give an idea of what he can do!
Won first prize in Nail the Mix for the third time.
wrote a song i am really happy with this weekend. i have found i can use my kids as a barometer lol. they tend to get excited and start yelling for good parts and then lose interest if its not that good.
sent a vid to my bandmates, they love it. hopefully band practice this week results in a new song!!!
Just had a pre work wank session on the Tl60 via MT15. Nutritious start to any day.
We had a show on Sunday that went really well in terms of the performance. As someone who is relatively new at the being-a-drummer thing, I feel like I'm finally making it to a point where I'm comfortable just saying "yeah, I'm a drummer" instead of "I just do this cause the old drummer quit and it looked fun". No major screwups, was able to keep the pace reasonable, was able to keep my feet pretty consistent, I'm getting used to playing with triggers, starting to have decent gear, find my own sort of "style" to play with. I'm happy with where my drumming is at.
