oh yeah...my blog

so...i have a blog...

(in this space please hear the sound that a cowbell on a spring attached to a football helmet on your head makes when you shake out the cobwebs)
if you're confused about the sound ask danboy.

forgive me people, i have not blogged...my last entry is below and dated for your convenience.
you may be wondering what's happened to me since i last posted; what's going on in the world of me? well, the answer to that is very short and simple...nothing. i'm in the off-season of work...i look after my parents with the cooking and the cleaning and all the other things that entails...i play a lot more guitar than i have in the past year...and i still play a lot of games.

a. the music front

here're a few songs that all of you should know and listen to and realize that you're madly in love with:
jeff buckley - lilac wine (hot damn, that boy can sing)
elliot smith - tomorrow tomorrow (endeavouring to play it...not an easy task)
sufjan stevens - the predatory wasp of the palisades is out to get us! (what fun with rhythmic and harmonic layering...and he uses a mess of woodwinds...we all know that's good times)
radiohead - gagging order (try bending your head around the rhythm...it's pretty keen)

b. the gaming front

i know some people think it's pretty lame to play computer games...they're probably right. however, i find gaming delightful and extremely entertaining.
and now i'm going to admit to everyone who reads this that i have a problem...
i play world of warcraft
this game can suck the life entirely out of people...it has phenomenal powers over those who are not aware of it's wiles. one could say it's much like the devil that way, if one were so inclined to make such a ridiculous comparison. i'd like to think that i'm in control of my life and have not let wow (as world of warcraft is commonly called) take over. i suppose i'm not actually qualified to make that claim, however. you'd have to ask my family and friends whether or not that is, in fact, the case.
you may be wondering why i said that i have a problem. well, i'll admit, that was a little bit of sensationalism to pique your interest in the picture i'm about to show you...
this is a shot of my main character right now...her name is hindlithe...it took me some time and effort to get that white bear (it's her pet) and i named it angus. the little dragon-looking thing is her little dragon looking thing and the guy with his back turned has nothing to do with anything.
so...here she is:

ok...that's all
