Death Magnetic, and many more books...

Is looking to be pretty good so far... just reading up on some stuff on their site and watching a few of the more recent videos with teeny-tiny samples of their work in progress. They've also got a load of old live stuff that is very fitting with my musical flavor of the month!

Guitar status - still haven't sent to the shop due to financial issues. I feel like buying another guitar but you know... financial issues! Que sera, sera.

My birthday's coming up! Sunday, it is. I hope that I can enjoy my birthday weekend in a relaxing and stress-free environment, with lots of fun attached!

Err, umm... my band still rocks. We're hastily working on getting our live thang together and I think we could actually have our first show next month. We have also a majority decision on a name, but I'm not sure if it's going to be official, so I won't drop it here.

That's about all I got for now. I hope to add an update before my birthday. With video.

UPDATE: Here's a video of me playing the solo I wrote for one of the band's new songs - Vuelo Letal!

New Occupation

Hello all! I'm happy to say that I have found a new job! I'm working for Rainbow Network Communication as a Duplication and Quality Control Technician. The short of my job description is that I watch TV! The long of it is that I duplicate, quality check and archive television shows and movies so that when it's ready to show them on TV, they look and sound right. I also put pre-programmed closed captioning on the shows that don't have them and ensure that they match up properly after applying them. It's a wonderful learning experience for the past 2 days I've been working and I look forward to a long tenure here.

PS - I'll be getting my guitar fixed by next week, the latest! Videos will come soon!
