I'll be turning 23 on Wednesday June 17th.
Most likely I will be celebrating the weekend following my day of birth. I was thinking, what should I do for my birthday? Does the UG community have any ideas for me? (realistic ones!)
Then I was thinking, gee if I could have a dream birthday celebration, what would I do....I'm still pondering but I'll let you know when I figure that out!
If you could have your dream birthday celebration, what would you do? Share!
I had been shopping around for an ESP LTD EC-500 for quite some time. I finally found the gem on Ebay and committed to buy- and I am so happy I did! I've included some pictures in this blog and will update in my gear section as well.

Also, This weekend (Fri 5/8, Sat 5/9 and Sun 5/10) I will be in Las Vegas! I wrote a previous blog about it months ago...and I can't believe it's finally here. Amazing how time flies by huh?
I'm sure I will miss my new guitar (and of course my little fish Farfenkruger) dearly, but I know I'll have a blast. Wish me luck and I'll see you all next week!
Ok so it's the next day and the show is over and done with!
We all had a lot of fun. It was a bit chaotic and un-organized at times, but in the end it all came together and was totally worth it. It was a 10 hr work day and I was in make-up for about 8 hours of it. I am exhausted!
I also had a chance to gamble at the casino and won $150! So I think in the end it was a great day.
I put together an album on MySpace if you would like to see the pictures. You can follow the link and add me as a friend to view them.
On Saturday March 21, 2009 I will be in a fashion show!
I am not going to be modeling but I will be part of the closing act. I am going to be a Zombie! We're reenacting Michael Jackson's "Thriller" at the end of the show. The coolest thing is that the artist who did the 25th Anniversary of "Thriller" will be doing my make-up!! Hopefully I'll get some good pictures to show you guys
I am sooooo excited! There's also and after party with free food and drinks- sweet!
It will be held at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods Casion Resort in Connecticut. If you are interested in going, you can visit this site:
I had a wonderful time. The ride there and back wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The 5 hours really went by fast. I stayed in New Sharon, ME on top of a mountain, in the middle of nowhere- literally. There is only one stop light in the whole town. Most of the roads have a speed limit similar to the highway...about 55 mph. There is a general store, a diner, plenty of barns and little shops. It was so peaceful and serene. I really needed a relaxing weekend. I feel great!
I'm going to Maine this weekend (Friday, Saturday, Sunday). I'll be driving up. It's going to take me around 5 hours to get there. Hopefully I shall return!
You know, when I picture Maine, I think of reading Stephen King novels when I was younger. It's like his books always take place in the middle of nowhere in Maine- you know, the woods where houses are miles apart and no one can hear you scream?
Well, luckily I'll be with my fiance and we're visiting his mom, so I should be safe. But if I don't return, farewell UG and all of its contents...it was nice becoming acquainted with you! :tears:
My father, his friends, my fiance and I are all going to Las Vegas in May. We will be leaving early Friday May 8th and returning late Sunday May 10th.
We will be staying at the MGM Grand Hotel on the strip and possibly going to a DMB concert Friday and Saturday night. It should be a blast. I am not looking forward to the plane ride, but it will be worth it!
Yes! I have finally purchased one of the instruments on my list!
I bought a Danelectro Danoblaster Rumor bass today.It includes a built-in chorus effect and has a blue sparkle finish. I found it on Craigslist and contacted the owner a few days ago. We met today at a Guitar Center so I could check it out. I fell in love! Again! It sounds great, feels good- perfect condition. I think I got a pretty good deal considering they are going for around $150+ on Ebay. The best part is I didn't have to pay for shipping and drove only a mile to get it- you can't beat that.
So, needless to say, I am very happy with the new addition to my gear family and hope to have many wonderful playing experiences with her. She's a beauty and I am quite glad I made this purchase. Also, I posted a picture in the gear section of my profile if you care to check it out.
I have returned from my weekend trip to Boston, MA!
I must say, I am not as satisfied as I thought I would be. Not only that, but I am also down about 200 bucks due to subway fares, shopping, food, and drinking. I went hoping I'd find a new instrument or stumble upon something I can't find around here. I am surprised I didn't see some better used gear- especially since I was around the Berklee College area. I figured there would be more music shops but there were not many.
I picked a pretty bad weekend to go too- it was around 30 degrees most of the time and extremely windy. Even with all the layers I was wearing, I was still numb. I could only walk a few blocks at a time before I needed to retreat to a warm Starbucks or hop on the subway.
Despite the cold and lack of guitar shops, I still had a great time. I was able to get away from my home state for a while and found a few more places in Boston I really enjoyed. I am definitely planning to go back within the next year- when the weather is warmer of course!
I am going to be in Boston, MA this weekend! I will mostly be staying around the Commonwealth Ave/College area. I'm looking forward to visiting. I haven't been in a few years, not since I saw Nine Inch Nails at the Fleet Center. I'll be stopping at a couple of music stores- I'm really hoping to find another guitar or some instrument to add to my collection.I also have a few restaurants and bars I'd like to check out as well. If you know of any good places to stop (music stores, arts/entertainment, restaurants, etc.), please let me know! Maybe I will even see you around!
