Moving to better quarters on campus…

Well, the residence/roommate situation has panned out. Greg and I have been approved for the townhouse, and we're due to move in starting next week. I'm pretty stoked. This place has a full basement, so I'll finally have some space to unleash some sonic fury on the guitar again. I've been trying to keep it as quiet as possible here since I'm on the second floor and not shielded by anything really solid. No more! Hah!

The new place should make things pretty hectic in the next couple weeks. I'm going up north this weekend for some (hopefully) sunny R&R, which will be immediately followed by two weeks on the midnight shift, coupled with moving into a new place and cleaning up the old one. Fun stuff. Oh well… moving about 5 miles sure as hell beats moving 65 miles. If we can acquire a van or some other large wheeled vehicle, I could probably move the majority of my stuff in one day. That will definitely not happen with the midnight shift in effect, but it could happen I suppose.

Other than that, I haven't been up to much. We've been a little light at work with Steven getting married and Joe going on vacation, so my project has gone on the back burner for the most part. Last weekend was Darin and Lisa's wedding, which was a great time. All the guys were in attendance, including Chris. We had a blast, and proved that it is indeed possible for 5 drunk guys to kill two large bags of pizza rolls and a DiGiorno pizza.

I got bored the other day and decided to install a couple of the included programs that came with my Audigy card. One seems like a full-fledged recording and mixing program, and the other is more geared towards making loops and stuff like that. I've only played with the latter, and I've yet to really figure it out. I did set up a couple of beats to play along to on the guitar though. It's a heck of a lot easier to improv when there's a steady beat to play along with. Whenever I would just play before, there was nothing but the (weak) beat in my head, and that changed quite frequently, and downright wandered away a good portion of the time. I'm going to try to figure out if I can record stuff against the beats. If it's possible, I'll try to post something here soon.
