In a Brave New World...

...probably one of the best songs on the Iron Maiden CD that I thought would rock a lot harder than it actually did. 

However, being graduated and no longer, as I've been constantly saying, a lowly college student, is quite odd. Also, I don't have a full-time job, which makes this even more awkward. I have something that I haven't had for a long time, full days off. I'm having difficulty getting motivated to do anything. I've been sitting around, watching The Office, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Band of Brothers. No good. 

I have been working on my flawed guitar technique. Unfortunately my old teacher was right, practice makes permanent. I've been playing the way I play for as long as I've learned. It took me forever to learn to play the D chord correctly, after I learned it the wrong way. I have to re-teach myself some of the basics. It is ridiculously hard. To keep learning new things and to learn them right, I've been learning vocal melodies and the like to try my new technique out on. So far it's slow goings, but I know it takes patience, and if I'm going to be teaching students I need to do things right. 

Oh well, so it goes.

Boom goes the dynamite.
