If it makes you feel any better, my first album was a collection of covers and instrumentals, and on all of the covers my voice sounds embarrassing because of similar volume issues. The instrumentals are OK, but I was like 14, so the guitar playing isn't that great.

I'd give it about a 5/10

See, that's what a social life does to you.

Watching the cricket? I loved seeing Australia at 3/24, though this recovery is pissing me off.

The video was clearly made in 10 minutes.
YouTube commenters are sometimes even more amusing than the videos themselves.

It actually makes me want to record some more covers when no one is home. Unfortunately, it's quarter of midnight and I can't really do that here at the moment.

I think I could do alright at full volume.

Also, I don't actually own an acoustic guitar, so all my recordings are me playing an unplugged electric, which doesn't help the sound.

This is true.

People who don't read them because of the sheer stupidity of them are just prudes.

Not yet. We did an IP check though. I'm pretty sure they're using an IP masker. Each comment comes from a different IP - three track to the Dominican Republic, Dubai, and Toronto, and the other two are untrackable, at least by the site I used. None match anybody here, unfortunately.

Maybe our next threads should go to those three locations?

I'm not watching yet, i'm just holding on until the end of the NZ Domestic One Day final.

Otago 250/2 from 34 overs, needing another 61.

Brendon McCullum is on 139 off about 95.

We're not talking about cricket are we? They're not even sexy.

I don't remember precisely, but I think you came around sixth. And the global tour is surging ahead at great speed.

What's going to come first? We run out of destinations or we lose the will to live?
