pps - i always wanted to play the clarinet.  i was a dork as a kid and i was really into swing music - benny goodman, artie shaw, glenn miller, the dorsey brothers, duke ellington, etc. - actually - it IS GOOD MUSIC - so why the hell not?

when i took a trip around the west with my highschool buddies, we stayed at some people's place in San Diego.  The daughter played clarinet, and she let me try my hand at it, since i already knew pennywhistle.  It was the funnest time ever.  It was LOVE.

I also would like to learn the irish Bagpipes one day.  I will.  I decided against joining the irish rock band, or getting involved in the RVC band thing, because i have stupid limitations right now.

what else do i play? - pennywhistle (i have two), awesome harmonica (i have three). - i once had a huge professional DOUBLE DECKER C harmonica, but it got stoled.  It was worth a lot.  Plus i kind of fiddle about on electric guitar - never really learnt it, but i jam pretty good to blues rock.  I also play vocal chords, that's my forte.  And i write songs.

oh - the misfits are coming to rockford this month!

melloncamp was here tonight - i know he means well, but i don't like most of his music.  when i was in indiana, they played him every other song!

gwar? wat's that? it sounds like a disease? or a food additive!

i had a post rolling around in my head this morning. i think it was too sacriligious though. i was going to say i thought there were several gods, and they are all playing poker. they had different names. one was frederick engels, one was i'll-knock-you-down, one was the true omnipotent god who turns out to actually look like a goldfish, and one was smashing pumpkins!

I played the clarinet 6th grade to...10th grade. I sucked at it. I still have my clarinet, I should sell it.

yeah - clarinet gets tricky when you try to get serious with it. the main thing stopping me from learning it was that i never felt like doling out $200. plus i don't know what a quality clarinet is. i also don't like how they tickle my lip.

you should sell everything you can - this is the road to great happiness.

I sat next to a guy in Chapel a couple weeks ago who played "America the Beautiful" on a set of bagpipes while walking around my dorm on 9/11.

He was very nice. I found out he's also from the town right next to my hometown. I was dying to ask him how he'd managed to avoid getting his ass kicked, but that seemed rude, and I don't think it would have come out right. lol

yeah - it would have been weird to ask, um, btw, well, you know how... i...

people prolly wanted to kick his ass but 9/11 brings immunity to ass-kicking maybe

i've been trying to learn how to play guitar for about 2 years now,all i know are the basic chords....i'm not that great.oh and the bass.....and a little keyboard.
anyways,that's cool that the misfits are coming.i bet they would be pretty sweet to see.i didn't realize that despairfaery has seen them before(damn her and all these concerts she gets to go to:-<)
i just heard Springsteen is coming here in April,there's a slight possibility i may be able to go.....but then again i don't know.

that's still pretty impressive! i've hear you were/are a musical family - that rocks - although amanda should stop paying for so many concerts! - it's jealousifying! she should join and band and get into all her concerts for free!

i checked if springsteen will be around here - nope - he's skipping us over - it's a great album, from what i hear

if you don't manage to go, just tell yourself he isn't as good live as he used to be - but i hope you get to go!

yeah my dad sings and use to be in a band,now he does an elvis impersonation and plays some instruments.my mom can sing though she only does it around us.my bro sings and plays guitar.and despairfaery can play some instruments.
actually amanda doesn't pay for all her tickets,some she gets for free.
yeah we'll see if i get to go,tickets go on sale tomorrow.

in 5th grade we were given the choice to play either the flute or clarinet. I picked flute and ended up quitting it after two weeks. they wouldn't let me switch over to the clarinet, so they just made me sit in the LRC room for an extra hour.

harmonicas are awesome, I must admit.

you should definitely try out the irish bagpipes! This girl a grade above me in HS used to play the bagpipes every year during culture day and music day.
