Almost Over


I thought I'd post an update before the month is out. Which is in about 1hr and 5 minutes. Then December will be upon us.

Shock horror. I've almost stopped gaming completely. Despite having games, somehow something happened and I've not been playing.

Sometime earlier this month, I've decided to play guitar again. Lots of guitars in the house now. And I've also decided to really, really get into it. Which means I'm learning theory as well.

I've been playing the damn instrument for 21 years and I still suck at it. I would like to get much, much better at it. My actual target is pretty high. I give myself one year to do it.

I'm also contemplating buying another electric guitar but to be honest it's hard to justify that right now. I'm not in a band and as much as I'd love to be in one again, it's not likely to happen.

Anyway, life is pretty good because of all the music related stuff. I've discovered new and excellent music (and musicians) from a scene I hardly cared about before and it's been very interesting.

Music has awaken other interests as well. I hope this is a sign, a good sign of things.

The year is almost gone and it's turning out better than last year. I hope it ends on a high.

November Already?

Quite a few things happened recently. I've been meaning to update this blog but there's just too many things occupying my time.

I opened a Twitter account. Originally for work but it turned out to be more useful than I thought it would be.

I discovered new music. A very, very good Jpop/Rock outfit. I've not been this excited about a band since the early 90s. Makes one feel young again.

I've decided to music again. I discovered my brother's gotten hold of an acoustic bass. So now, we have 1 bass guitar, 1 electric guitar and 3 acoustic guitars. It's fun again. I'm rusty as hell but it's all coming back. Maybe I'll even get better than I ever was.

I'm even contemplating buying a new electric guitar again.

All of a sudden I have a lot of things to do. This doesn't include gaming even. Fallout New Vegas came out. So did Medal of Honor. Soon, Call of Duty Black Ops and FM2011 will come out.

I don't know if I have any time to play any of these.

I played Uncharted Waters online recently. But I don't have time to play it anymore.

It's been a pretty good month. New activity breathes new life. It's been quite a contrast from last year.

I feel pretty good suddenly. I hope the year will end well.
