Thinking about dropping in on Emerald City Comic Con this weekend in Seattle.

Just thinking.

That is all.

Slow Loris. Anyone who is friends with me on facebook can see me as a slow loris.

My partner sent me this:

Yes, they are finally turning this series into a live action movie. I watched it and was pleasantly unsurprised by this trailer. Had a song from Intermediate, a Steve Tyler song about love and splosions.

Then it dawned on me...this movie is going to end like every other episode of Starblazers (SPOILER ALERT!!!)....they fire the Yamato cannon. And it saves the day.

I suspect that I'm going to have to drink a lot of alcohol to sit through that entire movie.

This made me laugh because I have a fanatical Star Wars friend (he can cite lines from every episode... very scary to me) and I remember him saying something similar before Star Wars I came out:

"You know, there's this robot invasion and everything is automated and while I think the ending might be so obvious--someone flips a switch that turns off the robots--I really, really hope that Lucas added a twist or surprise."

Yeah, we were surprised all right--by the introduction of Jar-Jar Binks.


I think I'll grow my hair out like Tiyaku Kimura. Get a little more wavy action and use an extra-body shampoo. And yell a lot more.

Is it just me or can anyone else see this guy as the new chairman of Iron Chef Japan? I mean, with that cinematic scowl, he could be Takeshi Kaga's offspring.

(Happy Thursday. Band practice tonight, but I'll see if I can sneak on WoW somehow.)

Thriller dance performed by the inmates at a Filipino jail.

This was mentioned in Glee a few episodes back and they had mentioned that crime had plummeted while this production was being worked on.

Mythy, maybe you can help me with this. I would like to learn how to play the guitar and want to know where to start and what kind of guitar I should start with.

Any thoughts or opinions?

In the beginning you'll notice that the string height on an electric guitar feels more comfortable than an acoustic guitar--as a result you might be inclined to practice longer on an electric than an acoustic. If you want an acoustic more than an electric, give yourself what you want to play.

BTW, after your fingertips toughen up a bit from playing, you won't notice the difference. I usually suggest to acoustic beginners that they just need to suck it up and get past the pain. ;-)

I usually tell friends not to spend a ton of money on their first guitar, especially since the average duration for guitar lessons is often six months or less (yes, that's depressing). Secondhand loaner guitars from friends are ideal, especially if they already adjusted the set-up for comfort and performance. If you decide to pay for lessons from the beginning, ask your guitar instructor suggest brands for you--they can also help you with the set-up (I tend to get my best deals on amps and guitars from guitar instructors--new and used). If you buy a guitar from a traditional music store--not a Best Buy or Guitar Center--the managers/owners frequently insist on setting up the guitar for you before you leave with your purchase. Let them do that for you.

If you're not starting out with an instructor, let me know which way you're leaning (acoustic or electric) and I'll offer relevant suggestions.

One more thing: Determine your intended practice time before you buy anything. I usually wake in the morning, eat and help our youngest into the shower, and then practice until I hear her turn off the water and start to get dressed. That's usually a half-hour in the morning (yes, and a lot of hot water) before it's my turn to shower. If work allows, I can usually squeeze in another half-hour sometime in the late afternoon or evening.

I'm not a morning person so I think I'd do all of my practicing after work. Also thinking acoustic guitar because it's something I can do while not connected to a socket or...speaker or something.

I'm not sure about the instructor, starting off, probably not, more on my own time.

Thanks for your help, Mythy!

Rythy, if you can't somehow fold me into your luggage, kindly bring back hunky Irishmen to ... do cool things for me. Like to the hustle and Thriller dance.

I think I need the hunky-Irishmen equivalent to Robert Palmer girls.

((I hope you have a blast in Ireland!!))

I'll pester you in-game. (About the guitar, not the hunky-Irishmen-that-somehow-equate-with-'80s-Robert-Palmer-gurrls-in-heavy-eyeshadow. You're on your own there. ;-) )

Argh, got home late, Mythy and went to bed relatively early. Sorry if you were on and looking for me!

I'll be connecting through DCA or BWI, which I believe is in your area. You're more than welcome to try. =p
