Sunday Blues

The new video is in memory of Dime. I was up at 2:00am this morning watching "Behind the music" of Pantera. There is a bunch of hostility between vinnie Paul (Dimes brother/the drummer) and Phil Anselmo (Singer). Even after Dime's death, these two guys are still going at it. This is my favorite Pantera song. It's sad that this song kind of predicted the whole deal surrounding Dimes death.

Anyway....Sunday's are usually my most favorite day of the week. Today is different. I'm not sure what's going on with me, but I am all fouled up. It started Friday when I had to get up at 3:00am so I could get a kid who is deploying to DFW. I'm just out of sync.

Well, I told my boss at the music store that I needed a break for awhile and that I only wanted to work on Saturdays till August or so. With my new AF job and family situations, I'm starting to get a bit burnt with my present schedule.

Last night I went to jam with a couple of friends and couldn't get into it because I was so tired. I feel kind of guilty for having to ask for the cutback, but I don't know what else I can do. On a positive note, I am starting guitar lessons this week.

Well, that's enough whining for one day.

Hey Paul, long time, me no visit. Sorry about that. That's great you are starting guitar lessons. I just saw the LAGQ (see my blog) they were great. I want to take lessons, I'm really self taught and I'd like to learn more and play better. I'm glad your cutting back work a bit. Too much work and no play are not good.

PS: I turned off the word verification a while ago and have only gotten 1 or 2 spams in like 3 months.

I'm glad you ended on a positive not! Sometimes we just get into funks and that's all there is to it. You'll come out of it. I mean, if we all walked around ecstatic all the time, we'd be a bunch of friggin' idiots, right? Well, we'd look like it at least. Anyhow, hugs to you!

About the video thing. I found that if I only copy the HTML code that I need for the song its better. For instance, when I find one I want to change to, I only copy it from where it says "http:name of song here" to about where it says "height=whatever" that way your only changing the part of the code thats MUSIC and not the whole formatted thingy. If you really want to we could get online at the same time and I could walk you through it. Otherwise you will just have to get your Shakira video fix from my page...lolol
