Oh, and all these reasons:
- I often (which means always) avoid any and all forms of speaking for fear of embarrasment of my speech impediment... In other words, to protect my ego. Then I wonder why that ego feels like a false portrayal of myself.
- Music is (and always has been) how I internally compensate for my self-induced avoidance of human interation.
- When people ask me "How was worship this morning?" my answer is usually (which means always) connected to how well I thought the music was executed, and/or whether my Fat-Boost was set to the appropriate volume level to kick up those anti-solos just enough to be heard without sounding like I want to be heard... because I'm a minimalist (I decided).
- Then I assume that's what they meant, too.
- I once told a professional studio engineer and guitar virtuoso/luthier that I installed the Filtertron pickups in my Fender TC-90 myself. Actually, I bought it that way.
- I also told him I installed the Bigsby Tremolo on said guitar myself. Yep.
- I wear my peacoat because it makes me think that when people see me they whisper to each other, "Is that the guy from Coldplay?"
- This blog post, as well as 87% of my guitar playing, was inspired by this guy: http://www.guitarforworship.com/.
- 100% of my guitar playing was inspired by The Edge. Do the math. It works.
- The above bullet-point, complete with obiquitous reference to U2 and that particular aloof-stricken tone where you use periods instead of commas, was also inspired by that guy 2 bullet points up. Actually, it was outright stolen.
- I'm considering selling my Suzuki Marauder (my motorcycle--a.k.a. The Murderer) to buy a Honda ST1100. Yes, a sport-tourer. Goodbye coolness.
- In college, I wrote an 8-page paper on one episode of Family Guy. A couple weeks ago, I wrote my whole life story for a Bible-study class. It was 5 pages.
- When being a shoe-gazer is no longer cool, I'll probably go back to playing in punk bands.
Now that we have that out of the way, hopefully more writing will come. Also, I now own TWO cardigans, which are scientifically proven to make you more creative.
