explosions [in the sky]
funny how these things seem to escape us...
-----i was just thinking that while i love my black on black gibson sg, someday i think it'd be cool to own a blue one. i'd have to get it custom made being lefty and all, but it'd still be cool. i did give a little thought to completely stripping my epiphone sg down and painting it blue but i don't think i wanna risk it cuz i plan on using it as a "backup" guitar and i'm afraid i'm not gonna be able to get everything back together 100% correctly....but maybe i can get a cheap dirt guitar [as i like to call them] for like $100 and work on that.
-----robotnicka just randomly came up on shuffle. damn, i have not heard them in a hot hot minute. i really love their sound, i just wish i spoke french so i knew what they were singing about. haha.
-----xtreme lefty guitars is your one stop shop for all your brutal lefty needs. hahaha. i say that cuz they specialize in lefty guitars with a decidedly metal edge. they offer lots of classic brands/models associated with the biggest metal names in both guitar brands and players. the company is family owned and operated and the prices seem to be fair and the selection diverse. the art and design of some of these guitars, while not my cup of tea per se, is actually pretty impressive. i do happen to like some metal here and there but i don't envision myself playing a wicked bc rich any time soon and i can also personally live without a dave mustaine signature axe. hahaha. but for those of you who would like one, there are two dif models to choose from coming soon.
-----while we're on the subject of dave mustaine, i happen to think the man is a complete fukking rightwing tool bag. he actually said last summer at a live show that president obama staged the aurora, colorado shootings in an effort to ban guns. wow. like just. w.o.w. but yeah, i won't go into anymore cuz my head might explode thinking about anything he has to say. and as an aside, one of my solo songs is called "dave mustaine is an idiot" and while it isn't that metal for most of it, i sampled both him speaking some random freak shit [as well as that lunatic alex jones] and a snippet of him playing some crazy metal cliche shit at the end just to be an asshole. hahahahaha. i'll have to record it and post it sometime.
-----i once had someone tell me that soda was liquid satan [i posted about it at the time too] and they were right. that shit is so hard to give up and i sneaks back up and tempts me alllll the time like a damn snake trying to trick me into eating forbidden fruit. been doing a little shitty with it lately but i'm trying to approach it almost like AA, one day at a time. i know that shit is so bad and is killing me but it is seriously the hardest thing i've ever had to give up. i know i'm never gonna be perfect with it but every time i choose not to drink it i'm way better off.
-----my super awesome good pal and guitarist extraordinaire is getting married in like a week and while i am super excited for her cuz she and her girl are so cute together!!! i'm also super excited about getting new dress up clothes! yay! hahahaha. how girly of me. hahahaha. here is a fact about me kids, while i do sport the little boy look like a pro, and live in shorts and tshirts this time of year, i'm the opposite of a true little boy in that i love any excuse to get dressed up. i tend to stick to the classic black suit with a vest, always a vest, and sans jacket cuz i look weird in a suit jacket. haha. when i get some $$$$$ i want to get a grey suit going on but i'll save that for another fancy occasion.
-----this is fag city [romance. astrology. akathisia. revenge.] a nifty blog i discovered a while back.
warpaint "elephants" [this isn't my fav song by them, but i picked it because it is interesting, really interesting. i say that in that i found it... twisty and almost difficult in a way, but not...bad if that makes any kind of sense. sometimes shit is just like that, you don't like it but its somehow interesting regardless and you want to follow the twists and turns through til the end. this is early stuff, from their first ep and not as good as the material that followed on their debut full length, the fool which came out in 2010, which has some really pretty incredible tracks. i think its high time these ladies put out some new stuff. they have some fall tour dates which is rad, but it would have been radder had i realized sooner and actually gotten tickets. haha]
