    Used a bicycle for the first time in like 2 years. Such an exhilarating feeling. No more walking like a pleb.

    Btw, I wonder what happened to that thread where we cycled to the moon. Did we make it? :lol:

    Carlos Santana and Mahavishnu John McLaughlin - Love Devotion Surrender
    Yes - The Yes Album
    Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention - We're Only In It For The Money

    My basement rehearsal room/studio is starting to take shape. I managed to cram everything in pretty nicely, so now there's basically only some wiring left to do. We swapped our drumkit for an electric kit, and I'm super stoked that I can play drums even in the middle of the night if I want. Also this Roland V-drums kit is awesome, I can't imagine anything getting closer to actual acoustic drums. Sure, snare rolls and stuff like that can sound a little robotic, but mostly it sounds very good.
    Will be posting pics once I've finished cleaning etc :)

    Seeing the response of people to George Floyd has restored my faith in humanity. Seeing the highest ranking officers and NCOs standing up for what is right instead of parroting the president has restored some of my faith in the military. I don't think I have ever been as proud of the American people and the military command.

    The new TGI album dropped today and the boys are back stronger than ever.

    These guys were a huge inspiration to me even before the comeback story. I found them around 2012ish right as I was starting to plateau really hard with both instruments and was kind of calling it a day; sold a bunch of gear, was beating myself up all the time for not ever being able to get better- and then I decided to try learning one of their songs and it just clicked. All of their material just 'made sense' to me (to this day they're the only band I've been able to learn material by ear for), and I started learning all of their stuff. Every song they've released. Between them and After the Burial, those dudes saved my interest in making music, directly drove me to improve, and will always be special to me.

    Finally listening to this album after all this time and after everything they went through...it's powerful, man.

    My daughter's "defiance phase" seems to be coming to an end (or at least taking a break), and she's just been super lovely lately :)

    Got some super sick looking black limba from Rockler for more than half off normal price.


    Also my new 070 sounds gnarly as fuck through my Revvv.

    I got my Mooer GE200 updated to firmware 2.0.3 after not being able to figure it out. Sounds more badass than before. Such a great unit.

    Got myself a pair of new speakers for the first time since... well, actually pretty much for the first time ever since I earn my own money :D Mohr SL15, and they look and sound staggeringly good. Had a decent amp (& record player :D ) for a while now, but never really bothered to change from the old speakers to something more fitting and I've just been sitting here smiling like I had a few too many joints for the last half hour or so...

    Laughing at my wife calling me a psycho because I tried to explain how much it bothers me when people use straplocks that do not match the colour of the guitar hardware.

    Just got an LTD M-10 because I wanted another M2 but with a tom so I can change tunings on the fly. It turns out to be a seriously kick ass guitar. Like the cheapest bottom of the line thing ESP makes and the neck feels just as nice and smooth as my Japanese M2. The frets aren't quite as rounded and mirror polished but they are still dressed very well with nothing poking out and everything nice and level. I can deck the action without fretting out. The pickups aren't bad either. Of course, I am swapping the hardware to black Gotoh stuff and I am going to try out some Merlin pickups. Overall, I was seriously impressed with this. I just got it on a whim as a cheapo banger backup for alternate tunings because I don't feel like hassling with the Floyd every time I want to drop D or tune down a step.
