    There's an album I've been wanting, but I never could find a version on cd. My wife got me a turntable and I found a basically brand new copy of it.

    I'm glad I got to see the new Star Wars before the impending Apocalypse.

    I got some drum recording done. I haven't listened back to much of it yet, since tracking it, but I think it's.... acceptable. :lol:

    Been waiting my entire life for this day. I now own a 4 slice toaster.

    I remember converting from my old two slice toaster to the world of four... Everything made more sense. Colors became brighter... sounds became clearer. Congratulations and may it serve you well.

    I still have a car. And, being a bit of an idiot, that is a huge relief :D I took some stuff out of my car yesterday, went back in, never thought about that again... until my neighbours rang this morning. And told me I had apparently left my keys in the lock. So... the car stood there, for 24 hours, unlocked, with the key in the lock. Not the ignition, but outside. Visible for everyone. Luckily, this is a dead end road, quiet, good neighbourhood, small(ish) village of about 10,000... still, I am so glad nothing happened :D :D and I wasn't even drunk or anything...

    I'm happy that we live in the future, where we can plug instruments straight into computers, get tasty tones, and play music so easily. It's totally amazing to me! And the technology keeps getting better and the barrier to entry for new musicians and kiddos is so much lower. I love it.

    I'm with you 100% on that one. I mean, we're at the point where you can record/produce music at almost pro levels in your bedroom or what have you for maybe a thousand bucks. The limiting factor has stopped being the tech or the price, it's now just the time investment, the practice, etc - same as just learning an instrument.

    Moved into a new place with neighbors close by, feared my late night guitar sessions would be severely nerfed decibel wise. Rejoicing that the 6505mh i'm borrowing has a headphone jack. :shred:

    Finally finished the kitchen in our new home...

    Installed new: fridge, garbage disposal, faucet & sprayer, curtain & blinds above sink, blinds in informal dining area window, 5x8' area rug, LED light fixture above dining table, fluorescent light cover, cabinet handles, door knobs/ stops, trash can, wall outlet/ light covers, soap dispensers, and towel holder.

    Also re-caulked backsplash/ counters, refinished/ repainted ceiling vent covers, removed all wallpaper border ( fucking nightmare), filled/ sanded/ re-textured all nail-holes/ imperfections on all walls and ceiling, and completely cleaned and repainted ceiling and walls and entry-way arches. Ceiling is now a color-matched eggshell flat, walls are a Sherwin Williams Showcase flat "Seagull Beach", and inside of arches are a semi-gloss white. All trim is also semi-gloss white. Old kitchen hardware/ fixture finishes were an antique bronze finish... Changed out everything to satin nickel and stainless.

    I'm imagining a world where Evertune makes a tremolo version of their system and it brings peace to long running tuning wars.

    Son in law expressed indirect interest in learning guitar a while back. So i just handed him an RG321 and a Firehawk FX I had. The best part is he's got a sense of value and appreciation, not that I just handed him a Mark IIC+ and a Jackson USA or anything but he earns every last bill that he pays and he's got a 2nd youngun on the way. Never asked for anything.
    Anyway, next thing we were doing was pulling up YT lessons and Will It Chug vids from @Ola Englund , lol. Good times. Told the SIL I expect to see some power chord progress soon.
