So I haven't been posting very often at all lately. It's not just laziness (not purely). I have a new huge time consumer here at Strother House.

I used to have an acoustic guitar, then got depressed and sold it at a yard sale for a ridiculously low price two summers ago. Don't EVER do that. If you have a guitar, keep it. You'll never get the money out of it that you'll need to replace it. This is experience talking.

Anyway, I'd been thinking about getting a new one since about two days after I sold the old one. I ordered one off the Internet (not this one), but my stupid bank likes to randomly deny charges and checks (that's a whole other story). Anyway, after finding out that they weren't going to send it to me I decided to check out the local guitar store.

I made my huge nerd checklist of models I liked and how much I could get it for at the absolute cheapest. The guitar store is actually about the same as the Internet. That was a nice surprise, but the cheap bone still balked.

Then I walked over to the used section. This was a steal, even once you add in the case I bought. STILL cheaper than the Internet.

Anyway, I'm all happy. And that's why I haven't posted anything. I did learn some Tenacious D songs, so there's that.


  1. Will you go with the family (and me) to the Grand Ol' Oprey to listen to some guitar players? We can go backstage for 12 dollars extra and walk through the dressing rooms....
    The food is good in Oprey land and Dollywood kan't be fur away... Oops, I'm a slippin' into the dialect. Who is Tenacious D anyway?! And why can't you learn "I'm so lonesome I could cry." Or "Red dirt Road"...

  3. Sweet Hephaestus, we're all going to Tartarus now that Mom's joined the party. :)

    I can't wait for the campfire singalong:

  4. I will totally learn "I'm so lonesome I could cry".

    Tenacious D is the greatest band in the history of the world, period.

  5. I have to come up and hear you sing Tenacious D
