Hello World

I’ve been itching for a new guitar recently. Yes another guitar, except for one thing: it’s an acoustic. I checked the bank account and it seems like I’ve got enough to run out and get one now. However it’s just a matter of getting the parents to buy into yet another costly investment – despite using my own money – in an already long line of frivolous expenditures I’ve pursued this year. Please don’t get me started.

I’ve started to pick up the guitar again,  and I’m hoping this time it’s for longer than a week. I figure if my crude writing ability can’t get it done in terms of expressing myself personally like it did long ago, then saying nothing and playing something might work out better.

In the mean time, I’ll try to figure out exactly how Ben Gibbard makes that percussive sound in “I Will Follow You Into the Dark.”

A boy and his guitar

Dad capturing the moment: a boy and his guitar.

I’ve already decided on a name: Prudence, as a little tribute to my favorite rock star anime minus the bullet holes in Ryuski’s Les Paul Standard. There’s more photos and whatnot on Facebook (sorry Jamie), though I doubt the people who actually read this care enough to look at even more photos of the same thing, plus I couldn’t get the photo gallery on WordPress to format properly.

Now back to my readings on the Soviet Union. Screw it, I’m going to play Grand Theft Auto IV then go to sleep early – relatively.
