The Break

It’s been a lazy few days on my part. Haven’t accomplished much of anything, except for today. Finally got around to doing some tedious maintenance tasks of life. ūüėÄ There’s nothing like a half a day of work followed by some good food and company… followed by ice cream. Also wrote a tab for a Led Zeppelin song for tomorrow and managed to create a cool chord progression for the solo part of an MXII song called Hook, Line, Sinker. The name will probably still change, though, when I get to writing the lyrics…

Haven’t had the willpower to improve the drum-programming of the first part of Defenestrated, which is a three-part project I’ve been working on. I recorded the bass already, but the drums need some editing ‘cos the splashes and ride cymbals are on the wrong notes… Maybe I’ll do it tomorrow? Aaanyway, you can check out the current state:

Had a nice time at the band rehearsal today. I’m pretty sure we’ve found our singer and SHE is quite competent. There’s gonna be a few changes to the songs to accommodate for her voice…. free jazz ftw. We also played some Adele, Katy Perry and of course heard Miiro’s extraordinary beautiful rendition of Mies, jolle ei koskaan tapahdu mit√§√§n complete with karaoke’ish yelps and a drunk attitude. Well, not just an attitude, to be honest.

Work is pretty much routine now, so it’s become a bit boring and tedious, but I’m challenging myself by trying to be better, more efficient and more involved and interested. It’s not that I’m disinterested, it’s just that at some point this type of work kinda levels off..

I’ve had a fun time doing stuff with Sofia. Last week we went to a playground nearby which we hadn’t visited before.

Sofia istuu

Bzee

Work is apparently kinda tough! Three days this week I’ve had guitar lessons after eight hours of work and it shows looking at my task list.. some twenty undone tasks this week. I’ve also been kinda lazy otherwise, so not much progress..

I’ve been practicing some of the solo stuff I’ve written, but I’ve written some hard bass parts. Curse you, triplet 8ths! I should be able to play it next week, so stay tuned.

Life is pretty good and even at the moment…

 

Iron Sky

Saw Iron Sky last night with Tomppa! Pretty awesome, but somewhat not a really focused plot. Definitely worth the admission fee, though, and I’ll probably watch it again later with Petra.

Easter holiday, so I’ve got four days off from work! Pretty cool. Means I’ve got time to do things. Might start recording some solo stuff if I feel like it..

Band stuff is progressing nicely! There might be some exciting news soon, but I won’t speak out of turn..

Legend of Grimrock will be out on Wednesday, it will be cool!
