I fell asleep to “Pearl Jam” the album “Gigaton”

I exercised to “Foo Fighters” the album “In Your Honour” disc 1

 

That’s what I’m talking about!  Get up before 7:40 am and get the exercise done before 9:20 am!

Our place has been off of the housing market since the end of March.  I was told we’d be off of the market when our initial & only option at the time was sold in October.  I had/have no intent to go through trying to sell our condo suite in the land of cheap vacant condos & now a global pandemic.  Someone that saw the house while it was listed wanted to view it Thursday evening.  As of the writing of this on Saturday we have not heard a word & I really don’t expect to.  If we end up getting a realistic offer, we have no place to go for under $390,000.  This entire idea of us moving just adds to my already REALLY $#%&^%$ high stress level.  A house for us to move into will cost us over $410,000 minimum now.  As far as the entire moving thing goes for me, MAYBE next year?

This is an unpredictable housing market without this pandemic going on.  I say we payoff more of our mortgage & see what it’s like next year or the year after?

It’s been discussed & I’ll be saving for this FINAL guitar all while eliminating anything & everything else I spend money on that’s not a necessity.  While awaiting anxiously, yet patiently, my already ordered and already once delayed PRS S2 guitar.  This distant future guitar does more but will cost less because of the model line it is in & I think it’s pretty.  Birthday & Christmas gifts from my family will be the same for me as before & for a few more years.  No gifts, just cash please?  Yeah I’m streaming Apple Music, might as well pay for Satellite Radio, more music I don’t own but keep paying for?

This won’t cost ½ as much as my ordered guitar because it’s an SE model…& then my guitar glass will be full!  We have some debt to pay off before this happens though.  I don’t want a lot of guitars, I do want each guitar to have an individual purpose.  What I will never understand is that many guitars, in this price range, from many different companies do NOT come with any type of case???  If it wasn’t the fact that I ordered a guitar for whenever & my Lackamoola, there are a few of these available through the same franchise in 2 stores in Ontario.  Ah well.

I ordered this beauty in January & it was to be here this month.  Before all of this Covid-19 stuff happened it was delayed until mid-August.  I haven’t heard anything since but I just assume it will be further delayed until maybe a self-purchased Christmas gift?  As for when I get it doesn’t really matter right now.  As long as anyone & everyone is safe & healthy, I can wait for a guitar.  Here’s a message from Paul Reed Smith himself from Thursday or Friday?

S2 Custom 22 Semi-Hollow Body Guitar w/Gig Bag - McCarty Sunburst

I know this guitar will be AMAZEBALLS whenever it gets here!  I was reading up on the difference between the 85/15 s pickups in this guitar vs. the TCI s pickups in the other.  Big difference which is exactly what I was looking for, along with the many other differences!  I read a bunch of manufacturing science you likely don’t want to hear about.  Google it if you want to?

I’ll post a reaction video on Facebook when I get this & a photo on here.  Maybe a play through later on but…

In retrospect you probably didn’t want to read about all of the other differences (which there are more of) that I wrote about.  Unless you’re a fussy guitar playing individual.

Do I need expensive/nice gear?  Nope, the stuff I have is great & gets used A LOT!  I missed out on making money & buying new gear.  That’s where the money would have gone to anyways, well especially now without kids.

I’d like to get a job so I’m not considered a “mooch” but I was never going to spend my money on cell phone, tablet, laptop, video camera, microphone, zoom, skype, facetime, etc.  I’ll likely need that stuff for an online job?  If I wanted that stuff outside of work, I’d have it.  All it has ever looked like to ME is a money grab that I don’t need/want.

 

Well, “Lamb of God’s” new album is delayed from the initial release date of May 8th until June 19th.  No shipping available because of Covid-19.  Not much anyone can do about that?

Still some music I’m waiting for to be released.  “Chevelle”, “The Pretty Reckless”, “Foo Fighters” & “Megadeth” are hoping to record soon.

Midnight Eastern Time Thursday night/Friday morning in North America is the release of “Trivium” What the Dead Men Say

If you’re getting this through Facebook, give it a like or other reaction, or share it.  That’s the only way of promoting this site, since I’m not profiting from this in any way.
