XKit 7 for Tumblr
So, it has this thing. A buddy list? Looks like a chat app for tumblr to these eyes. Anyone use it that way or is it something hooked into your Ask box?

Nintendo Wii controllers
I don’t know how people use the two controllers at the same time. The regular Wii remote AND the nun-chuck? Fuck…. This Star Wars Lego Wii game is killing me. My son is 4 yrs old. He wants to play the game. Fine. Every five minutes, “Daddy, come help me”. Which, translated means, “Play the game for me and I’ll watch you play” I don’t know what...
A Blast from the Past
redwing-berlin-hamburg: And off we start the weekend with another stunning set of vintage photos from our very dear friend Matt Strickland. Lot’s more of these and other interesting stuff at his highly recommended blog Rivethead!
To do list redux
1. Explore rhythm. Eighth notes, triplets, 16th notes, etc. Then expand to rests. Not starting on ‘one’, playing on odd beats, over the beat etc. The counting will be hard enough.
To do list
1. Write out the CAGED guitar fingerings for M7, m7 and dom7. Maybe diminished. 2. Write out and play some blues progressions, ii-V-I progressions and other common progressions to play into the Ditto looper. Then practice the CAGED arpeggios over them. 3. Practice the songs on the setlist, especially the solos. 4. Explore diatonic arpeggios over a static, modal sounding chord progression.

Amazing how much mileage you can get from minor 11th, minor 9th, some minor 7#5 and minor 7th b5 chords. I’m sure I’d get more if I studied up on some diminished chords.
Video coming up.
It’s a solo guitar arrangement of The Hollies “Bus Stop”. Spent a while on this, getting the chord voicings just right. Some big chords in this one.

Friend: We're just sitting in the car.
Me: With your seat belts on?

I need to stop all this 'hating' today.
UGH. It’s a proven fact, that taking your ‘anger’ out on something, only prolongs the negative feelings.
fleetwoodmacfoxes replied to your video: Daft Punk - Random Access Memories This sounds SO… But who are any of us to say how they are supposed to sound? Daft Punk is whatever they want to be. If they want to be a “70’s west coast yacht rock band” and they make a record that sounds like it, then...

Who is Daft Punk, to think that they can re-create the late 70’s of the west coast? They’re the under-the-radar purveyors of cool, that’s who. (Seriously, can your parents point them out in their cameos in the TRON sequel?) With a rep that big, it’s a lot of responsibility. The ‘core’ fans expect something similar to their ‘sound’, yet want...

Honorable goals this week
1. Drive less. I tend to drive to town to get a Starbucks at the drop of a hat, so stopping that would be great. yeah. 2. Stop going out at night. 3. Work towards stopping smoking. Again. 4. Basically become a hermit.
