I’m getting published! And double bass pedals…
Sweet. I got a letter in the mail this morning from Forces, the liberal arts publication of the College. Inside was included a letter informing me that they would be featuring two of my poems in their upcoming edition, namely The Chess Game of Gods and To Be Forgotten. And again I say, sweet.
Now for more awesome news: I and three guys from my church have started meeting on Saturdays to play some music. Colby and Tim on guitar, George doing vox and bass guitar, and featuring yours truly (that means me, FYI) hammering away on the drums. Which brings me to my next point: don’t do drugs. Wait. No. I meant to say that I have now replaced all the toms’ heads with Remo Ebony Pinstripes, the bass drum with an Aquarian Superkick II and some Evans impact patches, recieved some 7A Vic Firths for Christmas, and, most recently, picked up $200 worth of Tama Iron Cobra Jr. double bass pedals. Now I’m wondering if Carol would be capable of custom crafting me a new drum set…? Oh, well, that’s for the future, the distant future.
Now for a recent-life-events summary. I deleted my myspace accounts, the internet went down, I adore Racquetball, I made human sacrifices in honor of my incredible English professor, I stopped chasing Martha, I adore Racquetball, I got double bass pedals, my poems are being published, the net is working again, and I’m posting a blog. That, my friends, was brevity.
