i've recently aquired a very interesting book. this book is the base for a movement. it is The Book of Mormon. you may wonder "why does he own that?", well i went to the thrift store looking for a copy of The Torah but instead found this little "gem".
i got lazy. website is going to be up by sunday, sorry everyone. it's just the book reviews page, too much homework and other things are infringing upon my work. i'm so introverted lol. i have done so much over the past month with my servernotebook, seriously modded, i love it!
a funny thought popped in my head just now. what if i played Spanish Vihuela? lol! too many complex chord positions, plus no gears to tune, just wooden pegs like a lute. i want to play Baroque Lute. then again i need to commit myself to tuning 24 strings.
back to school. it's not so bad, finally going to graduate in just a few months and leave all my enemies behind (enemies aren't so bad though, however they are rather bitchy, LOL!). i miss my Junior Year though, had a lot of fun, not a whole lot of bad things happened. i was reflecting yesterday and saw that i made that year the best of my high school career thus far, but this new year i made a resolution... to make Senior Year top Junior Year. i think i can do it, i'm feeling very sure of this.
so i'm making my own webpage and it's going to be hosted on my old notebook (converted it into a server). it's my first webpage and unfortunately i can only put up an MHTML webpage, and to make a long story short it will be plain and simple webpage similar to the webpages in the early days of the World Wide Web. the server will be hosted privately under password protection, since i'm not ready to have it go public it's a test run so to say. so no one be surprised when i ask you to test run my webpage, and do whatever you can to see if you can find dead links, errors, Et Cetera.
today i was think to myself, "i don't fit in anywhere". and so i then thought "fuck it, i'm just a hybrid in that way". now even though i don't fit in anywhere especially here, i'm actually not having any apathy, or any negative outlook. i've decided to stop trying to fit in, it's too hard and complex. i have no idea how others manage to do it, probably my slight "ld" disposition.
i know skill is important to have, especially in this life. for example, i if wanted to be a musician i would have to lead a meager life under constant debt because i can't read musical notation to save my life. how does it apply? well, to be held in high regard you must absolutely prove that you have mastered and dominated a necessary part of being a musician.
i don't see why it's so fashionable to hate religion. i don't understand why people often confuse myth with fact and think that all religious people are gay bashing, intolerant, republican, etc. i can admit i've been offended when i've seen hate videos made by people who hate religion. they say there is no god, stuff like that. it's not that they don't believe that bothers me but that they hate. hate is never acceptable.
here are some neat pictorials i found on English Яussia.com
1. "Only in Russia you may see..."
2. "Soviet Moscow in the eyes of a Frenchman"
3. "An appartment in Kharkov style"
but i got a red Nintendo Wii! from my dad, it was so nice of him to do so. :) i'm all happy about it. it's so awesome! it can do so much stuff. it can emulate a Gamecube. so i used a few Gamecube games, it can also use Gamecube controllers. it cames with two games packaged: "Super Mario Bros. Wii" and "Wii Sports". i'm not a big fan of the sports one, but i love the mario brothers game. :) the whole thing is red it stands out but, (IT'S RED, MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE COLOR!).
i'm feeling okay, i'm feeling good. i do enjoy however that tommorow some will celebrate the real meaning of christmas. although Christ's birth was probably sometime in January, it's nice that a single day was chosen, and has remained the same date for a time. i'm not entirely sure how to celebrate the birth of Christ, but i will find a way to honor the one who sacrificed himself to redeem mankind. i looking through The Gospel According To St. Luke and found this: (1:30-31). i think it's a wonderful verse, and very fitting to this time.
it's an excerpt of "Kyrie". the reason why it seems like bass tablature, is because it is early notation, this particular song was used in Gregorian Chant.
in other news the Dunlop Elastic capo is proving to be a great asset, the glass slide as well! but i now also have bad news... my classical guitar, at the heel it seems to have internal cracks. :( i really hope the cracks are nonexistent. but as far as i can tell they might be stress cracks, classical guitars are very sensitive to changes in heat and humidity. i guess this might mean i can get a new classical guitar.
i am still trying to grasp the concept of this much time being left to me. so many things i could do. like; classical guitar, folk guitar, electric guitar, bass, piano, harmonica, making a computer server, play gamecube, listen to music, read books, watch movies, finally make that short film. so many things, so much time. it's almost annoying. it's relaxing though, i'll try to squeeze as much fun out of this time as i can.
so i was brought up in a house full of; wood, lead paint, sixty year old wallpaper, cast-iron hardware, glass door knobs, and the biggest windows. the house itself to date is 83 years old. i find it odd how i grew closer to the past than with modern times. i've grown accustomed to; the thick blankets used on cold nights, the creak of floorboards when walking, seeing modern items blending with various antiques and few relics, the occasional shift of the house making it very hard to open and close my bedroom door.
yesterday i went to the local music shop, and picked up a Dunlop glass slide, and a Dunlop elastic capo. i like how the glass slide fits perfectly on my pinky, it has good weight and clear undistorted sound. as for the capo ($3) i expected the worst. it was surprisingly well worth $3. given that you need some ambidexterity to stretch the elastic band to around the neck to the other side of the plastic coated metal bar (the design on the woven elastic looks great on my classical guitar).
i strongly dislike my feelings.
