it's been a year since i have updated this. so hello to anyone who has read this.
i have moved out of the jam space since we have decided to take a break as a band. solecism played 2 shows this year. the result of non-stop practice. we want to start recording in the future and spend less time playing shows. the band was initially supposed to be a jam and recording project anyway.
i have since set up my drum kit at home upstairs and play them on the weekend. i don't have them all set up though due to the space i have. i could set the rest up i suppose but i don't require it. the setup i have going now is different and i like it. i could almost get used to it for playing with solecism. i haven't been jamming too much metal since the break started. i have been just screwing around trying different things on the drums that i normally don't do. definitively fun and challenging for sure.
the other day, i decided to finally sell my ipad 2. it was a long time coming. i enjoyed the device, not to it's full potential however. when i first purchased it, i was more into it. i was always looking around for cool things to do with it. such examples are editing photos, playing an intense game, or remoting into my server. i sold it because i have also decided i no longer want a device that has a 10' screen and instead, opt for something more portable. i want this device:
other than the above, life has been okay. just getting by with it and everything else. the wife and daughter are doing great and we're a pretty happy family. it's been 1 month and 9 days today that i have quit smoking too. i have been running a lot at night and sometimes in the mornings on the weekends. i am glad i got back into it. i can feel the difference in my lung capacity and stamina. i ended up buying a sony walkman for the running sessions, instead of an ipod. im done with apple stuff i think for now. the ipod touch's' sound quality is crap compared to the sony walkman.
anyway, im out. have a good one.
