I feel so productive. I just spent most of the evening editing the WAV files that make up the loops for 404 Not Found’s hit song “Spastic Colon”. Then I imported them into the BOSS SP-505 and did some more editing and now we can actually work on doing this piece live, something which has never before been attempted! (ooh, ahh)
I’m finally selling off my old guitars. Believe it or not, I haven’t played guitar in over a year. So I pulled these three old guitars out of the basement and put them up on ebay. It’s kinda sad to sell them, especially the acoustic guitar which my parents bought me 20 years ago. But I just don’t use them. Assuming they all sell, I’d like to use the money to buy one good quality used electric guitar, which I may use with 404 Not Found. Scott wants me to try playing guitar some.
Well, time to go do some ironing and watch the Denver Broncos game.
I found out a week or two ago that the 2nd edition of Roadside Geology of Colorado is out now. It just came out this month and updates the 1st edition which was published in 1980. Not that the geology changes, but the roads do! 🙂
Anyhow, that’s now on my Amazon.com wishlist, along with a bunch of other stuff.
Oh, last night I installed my new (used, really, but new for me) ZOOM 1204 and broke out my electric guitar for the first time in over a year. It’s pretty dusty. I’m thinking of selling my electric guitar, my acoustic guitar, and my electric bass guitar on eBay to try to get enough money to buy a better used electric guitar. We’ll see how that goes.
There’s a way I can set up this blog such that people can be notified by email when it’s updated. I don’t know how many people read this regularly (probably not too many), but if you think I should enable that feature, let me know by adding a comment to this journal entry. Thanks!
There’s a new exhibit at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science that just opened yesterday. It’s centered around the previously lost Liberty Bell 7 spacecraft. The capsule has been sitting at the bottom of the ocean for the past 35 years and they just recently brought it up. We’re going to check it out this afternoon. There’s also a new IMAX movie and the exhibit about Ancient Denvers, which I want to see. Then we’re going out for a steak dinner somewhere. Yum!

This fellow is going to have a fun time in American prison, I’m sure. The other inmates will just really love him.
Wow, $28 billion dollars! How is this woman going to spend it all in her remaining few months/years?

This has got to be the best eBay auction I’ve ever seen:

Well, I seem to have this working now. I replaced my old journal, which I was maintaining in Microsoft FrontPage like the rest of my website. Now I’m using Blogger. If all goes well, I’ll probably upgrade to the Pro version.
I’m also using Blogger to build a new suvbacklash.com, just to see how that goes.
