So it's Sunday afternoon, just had a big lunch, Charlie Musselwhite in the speakers(check him out) so I decided I'd write a lil somthing something about myself. So here goes:
I'm Kyrl, 14 at the moment, 15 on the 20th of November. Nice and ripe for the paedos if you think about it... guess we lucky UG isn' myspace or even worse, myspace for the retards: the dreaded facebook!
Any way, I'm Irish. Born in Dublin, somewhere around 3 in the afternoon, my mum is called Deirdre, my dad is called Kyrl just like me, she was born in a town outside Dublin, he was born in Cork. I have sister, called Sarah, she is 22 or something around there. No, I'm not going to introduce her to you, she has standards you know? :
Any way, I lived in Ireland till I was 2, which was when my dad got a job in Chile and we were all shifted over there. I lived there for 7 years, good times, but I hardly remember any concrete events. I had a bunch of good friends, you know, typical childhood friends whose face you remember but whose name has gone forever? Yus, same thing.
So after that, we hit Madrid, in Spain, I lived there for 3 years. I had one great friend there. Pedro. We had some good times, I remember he wasn't as rich as I was, which never bothered him or his family, but made me feel uncomfortable, so I started putting holes in my clothes and pretend all my playstation games were second hand. . I was a bright kid back then. Don't know where it all went. Any way, we got in a big fight, because we had basically played in the street everyday since I arrived and well you know, you get tired of people and something stupid like a cousin of theirs that breaks your model plane arrives, well you ban them from your house forever. Those who perma ban know how I felt and those who are perma banned know how he felt. :haha We were friends again when I left for South Africa 3 years after I arrived in Spain.
So, SA. What a great country. People in the world really don't know shit about anything. I got loads of emails from people I knew around the place asking me: are you ok? Are you the only white guy? Do people hit you in school?
I mean, what the fuck is wrong with everyone? For Pete's (not dirkgently) sake (it's another Pete), we're all humans aren't we (lol at the Pete joke plzkthx)? Everyone was great, I lived in Johannesburg and it's such a beautiful city, America, UK and the rest of the world would die to have the largest man-made forest in the world. Yip, Johannesburg was perfect, because you could be driving in the car and when you go up a hill you can look over some of the city, and it's all trees, humongous sunsets, it's just beautiful to look at.
Right so my friends from down there. I had George, Zeke(from Charles Ezekiel) and Andrew. George and Zeke I went to class with, and I was especially good friends with George for the last few months I lived there. We both played basketball at the time, he was called Asian Swoosh(he was from India, but yeah) and I was on the same team as him ( THE A-TEAM!) , we used to see who could last the longest on a winning streak at FIFA 07. Yeah, good times.
Zeke was an American working for a mining company, we were good friends, used to go to the same classes and hang out at break times, he was my "buddy" when I first arrived me, so he showed me around the place, it was a huge fucking school, and we were friends ever since. We used to have huge arguments over whether Trance was music or not. :haha :haha
He digs screamo now. He is in Perth, so ladies, if you get shagged by an American douche-bag, he is your man!
Andrew: He was my mate outside of school. I used to go to an indoor snowboard place and he was always there, we made good friends cause we were the only young people there, though he was always better than me He taught me how to do a 360 . He also took me sandboarding He was a great friend, we used to go to the movies and skateboard together... that's one thing I suck at, skateboarding. I never got passed the bloody kickflip.
So that was what happened over the year and a half(think it's that)that I lived there.
So from then to now, I have been living in Asturias, in the north of Spain. We live in a dead end town, an hour away from the main city. But it's awesome.
Fucking in the middle of rurality is great, everyone is easy going, surrounded by nature, lots of shit to do you never thought existed. So I have 3 really good friends.
David: He is hilarious. We hated each other for the first month of class and we are best friends now it must be my ability to . Not really, he and another guy were threatening to chop off my hair. Someone threw him a scissors and I jumped up from the chair(inclasslol) and caught it and turned around and pretended I was going to stab him... Those sort of things make you or break you.
Diego: Good friend from the town I lived in. It's near the town I go to school in. Not much more to say at the moment. We went out to the movies last night a 1 in the morning. We do that often. Plays the bass sometimes, when I pressure him enough. He is training to be a carpenter. He says he is going to build me a special chair to practice my guitar on
Jandro: 30 year old friend, used to run a bar I'd go to, Diego introduced me to him, we started talking about guitars and jazz been good friends ever since. He drove us to the movies last night. He is freaking hilarious and has these brilliant come backs for anything you say, completely on the spot. He also let me record a few things on him mac, and hooked me up with a gig at a local blues festival (he makes the DvDs of it, he studies film in Madrid) but I broke a string warming up, had no back up guitar(it was an acoustic guitar, I was doing a solo set) so that fucked up, but he gave me a camera and I recorded the whole festival up on the stage. w000000t. (it was a tiny stage but who cares?)
So yeah, what else... Err, I play the classical guitar and I started 1st year of Grado Medio in the conservatory. The way it's divided up is like this:
Grado Medio: Consists of 6 years with subjects that change as you go along, 1st year for guitar's subjects are: Guitar(1hourweek), Music Theory(solfege,eartraining,generaltheory, 2 hours week), complementary piano(30 mins week), guitar orchestra!!!!(1 hour week, once a month it's 2 hours.)choir(1hourweek) and I think that's it.
Grado Superior: This is the real conservatory, so to speak. It counts as a university degree, is 4 years long and it's what you do when you finish grado medio and you manage to pass the access test, which is hard as fuck. That's what I want to do. 6 years to think though.
What music am I into? I love jazz, I'm listening to jazz right now, I love classical music. I also really dig folks and blues, some rock, I kind of grew out of metal but I still with my guitar every now and again.
I write some poetry, but it's all pretentious drizzle, I also write some prose, more pretentious drizzle. I take some pitcherz wit mah cam, but they are all shitty. I dunno, you ask and I'll edit the blog.
man i really envy you, getting to go to all those different places and attending a conservatory, but i know the feeling of making new friends then having to leave it all, ive moved three times although all within an hour of eachother haha
