coming to a basement party near you

hey, guys, i'm not sure if you know this, but faster than ben got a couple of sponsorship deals and is on tour now. i must say, their guitarist can really shred some fret-burners.



as it turns out, being temporarily unemployed has it's merits. for instance, i can play guitar hero in my jammies until my hand cramps up and my eyes start to bleed water.

my boss' boss' boss requested my resumé yesterday. i freakin' hate resumés. but i'm not about to complain about someone looking into giving me a job that isn't in cold warehouse ten hours a day. that said, i do start my new job tomorrow. i'm more nervous than excited about this; i hate new things, new people, new situations. ugh. i miss my martin marietta friends.

on the bright side, i will get to learn to drive a forklift soon.

good luck tomorrow!

Re: forklifts kick ass
yeah, believe it or not, it's something i've always wanted to learn to do. i suppose it's because i've always been frustrated by not getting interviews at crappy warehouse jobs because i don't have forklift experience. i mean... it can't be that hard to learn!

of course, i am a pretty bad driver. and more so when i have someone watching over me. so, this should be pretty hilarious. i'm fairly certain it won't be my permanent position.

now i've only played like one thing on guitar hero at best buy, but i thought it was actually harder than real guitar...........

i think many real guitarists hate the game at first for that reason, but once you get used to it, i'm sure you'd be tearing it up.

I live with a guitar hero addict. can you hear me knockin is one of his favorite songs on there (although he is avidly anti-rolling stones generally). I just can't get into it, though. It hurts my wrist!
