With the advancements of technology making media so much more accessible, it is jsut as easy to learn to play an instrument such as guitar, drums, and even saxophone from the comfort of your own home. Not only does it cost less for these programs than it does to take professional lessons, but they don’t skimp on the tools you need to learn how to read music effectively, how to understand beats and notes, etc. Using a good hal leonard DVD, CD, or book system to learn how to play the instrument of your choice makes it easier than it has ever been to become great with your instrument.
The kind and amount of distortion you have for your guitar can mean the difference between sounding like you are a heavy metal hardcore, or an old school rock guy. Finding the one that suits you isn’t always easy, but if you are looking for the kind of crunch you need to play death metal and still get the tones you need for classic rock you might have to look a little harder. The ultimate classic electro harmonix big muff at guitar center is considered one of, if not the best destortion pedals ever by many guitar enthusiasts. IT gives you the options to hit the tones you need to fro whatever you want to rock hard with.
The new movie ‘Gravity’ starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney is a thriller where two astronauts become separated from their craft during a routine mission. According to Cameron it is the best space film ever made.
I was stunned, absolutely floored. I think it’s the best space photography ever done, I think it’s the best space film ever done, and it’s the movie I’ve been hungry to see for an awful long time,” Cameron said.
“What is interesting is the human dimension. Alfonso and Sandra working together to create an absolutely seamless portrayal of a woman fighting for her life in zero gravity,” he added.
Yeah…well I am gonna go out on a limb and say that it isn’t before i even see it. I just don’t buy it. Feels like a friendly plug from a friend. I’m sure it is a decent thriller, but the best just based on the concept alone makes me call shenanigans. Hopefully we don’t have to watch a scene on an electric mattress pad with her and Clooney going at it either. From some of the recent interviews I have seen of Bullock she looks like she has had a lot of surgery and looks extremely sickly.
As far as I can tell, Lebron won’t actually be ON the show, but I haven’t heard either way. I assume he won’t be, but the show is about…oh what do you know? A couple of kids that make it out of the ghetto, where one of them makes it to the NBA! What a stretch.
You really can’t really call it a recording studio if you don’t have any furniture to set your all your gadgets on. That starts with a recording studio desk first and foremost that will shelve your most important devices. It’s kind of hard to mix with all that equipment when you are unorganized. Surely you can do it, but it tends to be much more of a mess keeping it all together and certainly far less efficient than it would be if you had at least some sort of work station set up. We aren’t always chilling out in a park under a tree with a laptop and a pair of headphones. Sometimes you actually need the whole studio to get things done. It starts with a proper setup and the furniture to house it.
If you love The Waklking Dead television show you should do yourself a massive favor and buy the video game made by Telltale. Make sure it is the one by Telltale. Not the stupid one with Daryl and Merle that play some survival hunt. The telltale game of The Walking Dead has such an immersive and touching story. Mainly because the young girl Clementine is such a wonderfully written and acted character. So…everyone was very happy to hear that Season 2 of the excellent series will include her.
Telltale’s Walking Dead game isn’t some zombie FPS. In fact, it is a genre that I typically hate, and many gamers ignore. It is of the style of a point and click adventure game where story is the #1 priority with very little in terms of gameplay. You don’t need to be a good gamer to play these types. They are an interactive story. Basically this is why most of us more season gamers avoid them because we want to play. Plus video game stories tend to be quite weak compared to other mediums. Not the case wtih The Walking Dead game. In fact, many argue that the story and the options that allow you to “choose your own adventure” to get different outcomes is better than the television show, and I agree with them.
Certainly you must do a bit of survival here, but more in making the right decisions with some small gameplay situations where you actually need to fight, flee, or simply search for things to keep you alive. Finding the right weapon, or any weapon, food, shelter, the correct Reid Supply handles to fit that hole you need to use to open up something, etc. Most of the decisions have a series long impact that change the story over each chapter based on them. Season 1 consisted of 5 chapters and they are released over the course of a few months typically. You can just buy the whole season after it is over, which I did so you don’t have to wait. Season 2 will be the same. Cost is the same buying it as one, or one at a time.
Definitely check this series out if you are a TWD fan. You will not be disappointed.
For the first time we are headed off to West Virginia! Since I have never been there I am kind of lost in what to do. Fortunately, I have a friend that has lived there for about 2 years now so they say they have some plans for us. Not sure that I trust him that much to make plans for all of us. I like to make my own plans and do what I want. I prefer to look at some of the outdoor stuff, but I KNOW he likes golf as much as I do so he should be able to lead me to some really nice courses.
For things that I want to do without my friend, I have just been kind of browsing the W. Virginia Official Site looking for tourist destinations. Mostly wanting to see some of the natural sights. Maybe get out of our West Virginia hotels and even take a bit of a hike at one of the many state parks. The way it looks on the state website they have a ton of outdoor activities and activities. For sure I want to go white water rafting. Always seems like a great idea until you have been out there for a few hours and everyone starts to get tired, and sore . Still, I love being in the rapids and having that roller coaster ride. Probably won’t go anywhere TOO trecherous, but I certainly don’t want to go on any pleasure cruise either.
I think I should probably hit the golf course before I go out on the raft though. I remember last time I went in Tennessee, I was quite sore for the next few days. Nothing worse than trying to swing a club when your arms, back, legs, and every other muscle you didn’t know you had is aching. Wouldn’t be able to show off.
You don’t always have to pay a ton to get a very good guitar. The Luna Guitars tend to be good stable guitars with unique and amazing looks for the beginner and the more seasons guitarist. Starting with one of these makes you look like you already know what playing guitar is all about just because they have such a great artistry to them. All at a very reasonable price with great quality looks.
IT has been announced by Paramount that plans are in the works to create a 5th Terminator movie. Nobody is sure if Arnold will be in it, but many have said there should be some role for him. It is likely that he will be, but I’d expect it to be more of a cameo than being another terminator. Maybe he will be who knows. An old man Terminator with flabby pecs? Maybe he’ll go shopping to look for tap dance gifts and put on a real show.
While most of us would never even consider such nonsense, I doubt that it is much of a feat for a guy that has been a high wire walker his entire life. He said that he has walked a cross Niagra Falls at least 100 times before. He practiced in a tropical storm he claims. Maybe he should ahve procticed with people throwing silver ounce at him. HThe video below is an interview with him with some footage of whis walk a cross the canyon. He said that he “enjoyed the view”. I’m sure I would have done the same….while I was falling to my death!
