John Mayer’s Heart of Life - Acoustic rendition by yours truly.



Alright, so this blog isn’t as personal-ish as I’d hoped it would be. Truth is, it’s not as active as I’d hoped it to be. All that may change. I’d like to use this blog to express more of my ideas and thoughts to the world (read: those 6 followers of mine. You know who you are, you luck guy or gal), to comment on news, on events, to be more me-ish. So… here’s the thing:

This may not work at all. I’m keeping my hopes at the right spot - not too high, not too low. Think of this as a personal social experiment. It’s fun to write, occasionally. Whether I’m good at it or not it completely irrelevant to the point I’m trying to get across. I like letting people know what I think, which is why I suck at arguments.

Also, this place needs a remodeling. What’s with this theme, anyway? So, I’ll spend the next five or ten minutes trying to find a nicer one.

Personal-ish thing: Oh, yeah, Ocarina of Time 3D is a reality (to be) and I’m so looking forward to it. Here’s to a fun year in gaming history.

Oh, yeah. Happ-E New Year, folks.

this blog is compromised.


Hi, everyone. So, I’d like to start off by apologizing to those who read my blog since the last three posts have been reblogs from other people. I’ll try to be more write-ative… thing.

Anyway, it is currently 10:27 PM and this is, going to be one of those ‘what-should-I-talk-about-hmmmm” blog posts.

I really wanted to make a new post that mattered, that was genuinely interesting. Kinda like the one I did on ‘people’.

I wanted to ask this question - what is your perfect evening plan?

Nope, I’m not going to tell you what mine is, or would be. I do have some ideas in mind, that I’ve always wanted to do (I still have plenty of time). I’ll share them with you later.

Stuck with mental issues that won’t come off…

I’ll stick to this simple blog post. More elaboration to come, promise.

Good night to you all.

Bet you’ve never seen a typewriter like this before—from Dark Roasted Blend:

In 1865 what many consider to be the true ancestor to true, efficient, and financially successful typewriter was developed by Rasmus Malling-Hansen: The Writing Ball. Not only was it efficient, but also strangely elegant, even beautiful: just look at it - a brass half-sphere covered with keys above a cylinder that held the paper. It was finely made, unlike some of the unsuccessful machines before, looking more like a gentleman’s watch than a piece of office equipment.

Hey! What’s up?

So, how is everyone doing? I started getting busy again - with school and, starting this year, (classical) guitar lessons! I’m an official music student now, which is great. It’s being very interesting to see this other side of the guitar, previously unexplored (by me, at least). We’ll see how that goes.

Also, another thing that I wanted to talk about, I wanted to thank you all that send me messages telling me that you like my blog and reading it, it really makes me happy that someone is actually reading this, which isn’t exactly what I had in mind. I use this for venting purposes, mainly =P

But thank you guys for taking the time to read my blog, I hope you stick around.

Have a good day
