Last night I went into my studio and sat on the floor in the dark and played. It sounds really, really good. I'm a finger picking kind of guy. I love the tone a good OM or 000 gets. I picked out a tune last night that I'd written before the weekend and I think I'll record it tonight. Time to get back into the studio habit. I'm overdue on some tracks for technician and littlestar. With all of the finishing supplies stowed, my studio looks like a studio again and not some makeshift hobo guitar finishing station. If hobos do indeed finish guitars.
At any rate, it was nice to sit on the floor in the fading light and pick for a little bit. Music is good for me. It's why I'm here. It's a shame the world doesn't work the way I want it to, but I'm OK with it.
Tonight we get to be real parents! There's an end of the year program for The Dude's "school." We get to go watch a bunch of two and three year olds go over what they have learned this year. Of course the program is at 7 PM and bed time is 8. Thanks for being so helpful, school people! Great planning! Sigh. Stacky is already mourning the passing of her productive Tuesdays. Me? I say "Put down the bonbons and get back to work! I'm not running a rest home for retired sysadmins!" Actually, I only say that here. I hope she scans past it. If I put more words in this paragraph there's a better chance she'll skip it.
We played more of Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom this weekend. It got a little more fun when we stopped caring. I can't wait to review this game once we complete it. I will tear it a new one. Hint: if you have two players, fix your fucking camera so that it doesn't get hung up on all of your neat chandeliers and walls. If I have to rotate the camera a dozen times during a single encounter, you are clearly doing it wrong. Also, if you have no story, don't pretend that you do. Just give me cooler spells/combos and some more shit to beat up. Thanks.
Taking Friday off this week to pair with the Monday off that the bank gives us. It's a bank holiday, right? Or is that St. TARP's Day? I can't keep up. I stopped reading Facebook so I don't know nothin' 'bout no current events no more. Though I hear from a trusted source that Obama has paid people to trash Louisiana's coast line so that he can look like more of an idiot for granting nearly 20 exemptions for more off-shore drilling with the same failing equipment. See that? That's why I steer clear of the news. It makes no fucking sense! I'm glad that my family and "friends" keep me informed via 100 word status updates. Otherwise, I'd look like an idiot.
I'm reading "The Way of the World" right now. It's like "On The Road" but in the Balkans in the 1950s. It's my first physical book this year. I hate it (the format, not the story). There, I said it. Reading on the nook kicks the ass of reading a physical book. No bookmarks. No fumbling with pages. No using two hands. Maybe if I didn't have The Dude it wouldn't be as big of a deal. No. It would. I'm really sorry everyone, but eBooks are the way to go. Just like ditching the CD for the mp3. And for the record, I don't give a shit what they charge. I read books. It's what I do. I'll pay for that.
So I won't be a LOST widower on Tuesday nights anymore. w00t. Told you so. That's six years of hours I've kept that you've lost. Ha! LOST!!! GET IT!??!??!! OK. No more topical stuff.
That's all I've got.
