Since the sucker punch I can't watch it.. The Framerate gives me horrible Migranes, But my dad did recently purchase a 120 FPS plasma screen so I can watch the history channel, that's all I watch. I've realized I can live without it and that I have more to do in life than sit and veg....

Well, I've only been playing guitar since january of 07, but I've been playing Sax for 8 years, switched from piano which I started at age 7, but don't underestimate my abilities. I recently was sucker punched by a victim of ignorance from deliverance, from the greater detroit area. Suffered a broken cheekbone, complete amnesia, and 3 fractures in my skull, one beneath my eyeball which impared my vision for awhile. The amnesia meant it was a new day every day for a month or so, and a new person every day. This also meant that within two years I have completely relearned music. And because of the jaw injury I have had to switch to guitar. My classical training luckily transferred over, and I've been avidly devouring everything I can learn. Recently Auditioned, and made it into my college's jazz band, after forgetting all my musical training barely year and a half before. I also have a very different thought process, probably different from anyone else you'll meet, but I'll try to stay normal for easier communication. My friends notice it in every part of my life. While it sucks, it's kinda like a rebirth, my musical preception and intuitions are so different now, I've already acheived a different voice musically than most. I do weird things, not technically, but things with phrasing and riffs and comping that make people, sometimes me say wtf, but it works, and I like it. Not bragging, If I could I'd take back what happened, but it's given me a new outlook in every facet of life
So I'm and avid learner, conscious free thinker, and starting life. Hope we'll be able to share ideas and communications peacefully!
