In Tribute To Bill Cosby (Hair Growth For Life)

Current mood: Random

 A few friends and i have Decided that, in honor of the great achivements Bill Cosby has made over the course of his life, that we (long hair advocits) will continue to grow out our hair (Scalp, Facial, and Pubes) until Bill Cosby passes away...and then in tribute and mourning of him, we will shave our hair...

 It was kind of a stupid idea that we decided to take seriously. And, honestly, if anyone deserves a tribute when the pass, it's Bill Cosby.

So, please, Pray that Bill stays alive for many years to come!

I few things i hate

Current mood: annoyed

Well...Just kinda feel like venting...i'm not expecting responses or anything...this is just me stating a few things i hate

1. People who don't call/text back.
  -Perfect example today. Texting my buddy Troy...said something stupid to be funny. Nothing...Whats worse is when you have something importaint to tell someone...so you call them a couple times and keep getting the machine. Then, next time you see them IN PERSON they ask you what you wanted.

2. People who hate on Guitar Hero/Rock Band
  -Dude...we all get it. Musicians get pissy because people who play the game "all think they are Uber-Kewl!" I have never met anyone who is like "Oh yeah, well i can play Through The Fire and Flames on Expert!!" in conversation. And if they do, just fucking ignore it. The game is meant to be fun, not supposed to replace the talent. It's like playing Madden...it's JUST A GAME!!!

3. Close minded people
  -I'll admit, i'm guilty of thise one sometimes. It's especially annoying when it comes to music. My friend has never heard a Doors song, yet claims they are "Too weird and suck". Couple days ago, i made him listen to "Hello, I Love You"...And he likes it...then i tell him The Doors play it...and he's like "Oh, never mind" and changes the song...

4. Jeff Buckley Marks
  -I'm sorry guys...but Jeff Buckley...I didn't find him very amazing. Hearing about how "amazing" he is is kind of annoying. I'll admit, he's a really good singer...but people hype him up to be a god. I've tried to see what people see..but i just can't...

5. Porn with Plots
  -Any porno with a story behind it doesn't need to exist...

6. Internet Memes
  -I Know i can't do anything about this...but they all annoy the fuck out of me...Especially the one of Axl Rose...it's funny the first couple times...but afterwords...it's just annoying. Although...Mudkipz is funny...

Well...thats all for now...Just venting a bit...

Thing A Week Update 2 (6/2/09)

Current mood: Bummed

Well...Fuck...I got through the first 5 songs on thing a week no problem...but School let out last week...and coincidently the song for that week was schools out. So i went home to play it...

 Well, a few weeks before that i started having problems with my guitar. The part where i plug the cord into the guitar (I don't know the technical name for it) was loose, and made a horrible feedback sound. And it went on for weeks. I Would unscrew the little part, adjust the wire, and it would stop for a day or two, then keep on doing it again...

 Well, finally, when i sat down on the last day of school (Last Thursday) to play, i plugged in my guitar, and it started acting up again...so i adjusted it as i had been for the past few weeks...Well, when i went to move the wire inside...it snapped off of where the cord gets plugged it...and now it won't work at all...

 So...yeah...I'm guitarless for a few weeks...and i'm going to take my guitar into my local music store to see if they will fix it...or show me how to fix it...

 It's a real bummer, because i was doing pretty well...so, Thing a Week will be put on Hiatus until my guitar is fixed...or until i buy a new one...

Thing a week: An attempt to not suck at guitar

Current mood: anxious

  So i came up with this idea yesterday as i was driving to a nearby music store to buy some new strings...I can only play a handful of songs all the way through...

 

Songs i can play

  1. Hold On To My Heart-W.A.S.P.
  2. November Rain-Guns N' Roses
  3. Believe-Savatage
  4. Comfortably Numb-Pink FLoyd
  5. Wish You Were Here-Pink Floyd
  6. Crazy Train-Ozzy Osbourne

 

Looking at that list...i'm actually disappointed...I mean, i haven't even learned the standards like Iron Man, Smoke On The Water, Paranoid, or simple three chord stuff like the Ramones. I mean, i've learned riffs, but never bothered to finish...Well, NO MORE!

 

 Starting next week, for the next 52 weeks (a year, for those that didn't know that) I am gonna learn a complete song every week...so in the end, i will know roughly 58 songs...Ranging from incredibly easy (I Wanna Be Sedated) to the very hard (My friends want me to attempt to learn Blackened, so thats gonna be the last one). A range of a ton of artists, from AC/DC to Warrant (probablt not gonna go to ZZ Top...maybe later) and lots of genres.

 

 So, next monday, i'm gonna start work on the first song...All The Small Things by blink-182.

 

 The hope is that this experience will help me become a better guitarist and improve my range and musicianship...

 

 Will update soon...Laterz \m/
