Kind of ruins my dreams of being an ultimate rock and roll astronaut, but you know, something might come up. Hopefully.

I can't fucking tune the guitar. I keep meaning to buy a tuner and I never do. I find that if I have a guitar in tune, I'm not all too shithouse. Early U2 stuff is very fun to play. But I just don't have the ear to tune the damn thing.

Shoegaze! I'd love some rockin' effects pedals too ...

The trumpet's been laying in its case for the past two months, untouched for a while.

It's the open notes, mainly - they're bitches.
I tried learning the cornet while I was in primary school - to this day, I have no idea why. I think the local marching band was recruiting heavily, and it was shiny...

I wasn't very good, and didn't really enjoy it. Open notes suck.
(yes, I know you're supposed to blow...)

Take that innuendo and run, people! Run like the wind!!

I hate most chords. I don't enjoy playing them at all. But something like 11 O'clock Tick Tock suits me right down to the ground.

And see you later!

Ticket is bought!
Didn't we decide in an earlier thread that such a gig would probably be stupidly crowded and full of wildly pissed people? Perhaps something just on the weekend beforehand might suit everybody's schedules better anyway?

And awesome!

i'm glad yours was forgiving. i hope mine is too.


okay i better go walk my dog. now he's making me feel guilty. i'll be back in a few hours!
He sounds like an awesome guy.

I wanna see you on a stage one day... maybe Adam can start pulling girls onstage to play bass... why should Bono have all the fun?

Seeya!

In space, no one can hear your shredding guitar solo.

loljesus.com is a pretty awful site. They can't even spell 'atheist' right, even though it seems to be aimed at and written by non-believers.

Sometimes I feel like only agnostics are right, at least we're certain about our uncertainty and otherworldly ignorance.
