The New Boredom

Mah and Newer. Manure.

Oh yeah, internets.

Hay internet.

I’ve been missing a lot of internet lately… Well, I wouldn’t say I’ve been missing it, Bob.

I finally took the dive and got myself a new hobby that I’ve been eyeing up for the last 4 or 5 years. A pawn shop in Denver was fatefully holding onto this one waiting for me to come scoop it up:

Mid-60s Silvertone 3/4 size toy guitar. And with new strings on it, the thing sounds like melty golden butter dip. It also makes my fingers hurt like damn hell.

I also saw another thing yelling my name at a local music store but wasn’t sure what the heck it was. A few days of fruitless scouring of the interblags yielded no help. So I finally just said screw it and went and purchased the damn thing. I don’t regret it for a second. Fender Straight Six, some limited run of 831, a stripped down version of their standard strat. I plug it in and assuming my hand is in the right place, it sounds just dandy to me.

So far I’ve got the Black Keys’ cover of Junior Kimbrough’s “My Mind is Ramblin'” sort of down and I’m stumbling through the first 15 seconds of “Meet Me In The City”…

If only I had just quit being a scared little wimp and started this 4-5 years ago, I might be shredding right now?!

See ya later internet, new hobby time is upon me.


And that’s the story of how we got rid of that cursed lemon tree.
