      How is everyone?

      I decided to complete high school and learn a bit of music before I came back full force. God, I missed none of you!

      Side Note:
      Well a lot of shit at school.

      Being a Junior kicks ass. Knowing what and how to do everything is pretty fucking sexy.

      and 12th grade R TEH SHITS.

      NEWS:

      I'm getting a new guitar December.

      Till then, I'm putting in Seymour Duncan SH-6 Duncan Distortion Pick Up (Bridge). On my Dean Vendetta.
      I'm leaving the neck pick up in because it's excellent as is. The warm tone is right where is should be.
      My bridge pick-up, however, is my main pick-up and I need one with a higher output, better bite, crunch, and a meatier tone. I also like hum canceling sound. Therefore the SH-6 comes into place.

      With a job, I get to finance it myself, including the installation. So around $100 should clear it.

      I went to my corner guitar store, Motor City Guitars and I got the pick-up after calling in to see if they had it. I dropped off my guitar and should have it back Thurs.

      It also feels great using my debit card. I then got my parents an anniversary card (19 years) and GTFO.

      Pics up when I get it back.

    • Slipknot: All Hope is Gone

      9 years ago

      spartanfan44

      I got went to work and bought the album (special edition CD/DVD). With a discount for me because I'm sexy.

      First, my review of the album.

      This is a great album. It's got melodic choruses, bone crushing riffs, stunning solos, and soft-as-can-be songs. Everything for an "experimental" album. I won't go as far as saying this is their best. To me NOTHING will EVER beat their self tilted album. Iowa was another masterpiece that can't be challenged. But I WILL compare this to their previous album Vol 3: the Subliminal Versus. Compared to that, this is great. There are some great songs on V3:TSV, but AHIG has it's share of "awesomeness".

      Some of my favorites for this album:

      - .execute. - An intro that makes me smile when I listen to it.

      - Psychosocial - Their first single and a GREAT chorus. The album version is slightly longer than the radio edit. (kind of like Duality)

      Dead Memories - I compare it to my life. It corresponds correctly. Not to mention the chorus.

      This Cold Black - A REALLY heavy song. 'nuff said.

      Snuff - A soft song, self explanatory.

      All Hope is Gone - Sums up what the band is saying.

      Though these are my favorites, there is something to love about all the songs.

      About the album:

      Well first thing's first, my news article made it to the front page of Ultimate-Guitar. Read all about it if you like Slipknot.

      Headlines:
      - UG (above)
      - Job
      - Happiness Hour/School
      - New Axe

      Job:

      Anyways, the job has been awesome. Getting a good pay and 40% off (which I've used before on some clothes, awesome). Plus the co-workers are awesome. Get to vent all I need and at the same time share some laughs, while making money and working.


      Happiness Hour/School:

      Driving has become a regular thing for me. Seeing as I've been going EVERYWHERE. God, it's good to be free! If you haven't applied for a license and you're of age, DO IT. It's cool. Yay.

      My school starts in a few weeks.

      My classes roll as follows:

      Trimester I:

      1.Clay - Slot
      2.Chem - Mirolli
      3.World Cultures - Prevost
      4.English 11 - Martin
      5.Visual Basics - George

      Trimester II:

      1.Sociology - Duncan
      2.Java - George
      3.French 2A - Seigle
      4.Pre- Calculus - Yoder
      5.Chem B - Wisser

      Trimester III:

      1.Forensic Science - Stema
      2.English 11 B - Martin
      3.French 2B - Sawyer
      4.Trig - Baldwin
      5.Psychology - Pizzala

      Junior year for me.


      Next Guitar:

      My next axe is one of two things.

      An Ibanez RG2EX1. The guitar I can get is all white and would match Mick Thomson's or I can get it in all black matching one of his other guitars. It's amazing to me because I LOVE RG's and the thin necks of Ibanez are awesome.

      OR

      I could get a Jackson V JS30. This is based off my favorite guitar of all time, a Jackson RR24. I LOVE the shape and the 24 frets are awesome for the octave finishes and arpeggios.

      Both of them the same price!

      Of course if I get ANY guitar, I would replace the pickups with Seymour Duncan Blackouts. A set that many pro guitarists that use EMG's are switching to.

      August beats July:


      Well, since the beginning of July, literally the first day, the month sucked a major amount of balls. 450 Million gay prostitutes worth. You see, Sprint decided to lie to my mother telling her that I used over 4000 min. charging us above $2000. This ruined my entire month along with my 16th birthday.
      August rolled around. My mother found out Spring "accidentally" turned off "free nights and weekends" for me and that's what the charge was. So we got to ask for our fucking money back.

      Mayhem Fest:

      Well, let's make this short, shall we?

      k!

      Well, if you look back a few journals, I said I'd wanna work at Hot Topic. So I made friends with the assistant manager, Chad, and he put in a good word.

      I got an interview yesterday, and it went smoothly. It was awesome to talk to the manager, she let me know that I was basically famous around there (I guess Chad told everyone about me) and it's all laughs, man.

      I got a call today informing me that I indeed am hired and orientation is next Sunday after Mayhem Fest.

      WOO!!

      Just got my license as well as mentioned before, so all is good there.

      Saturday the 9th, I get to see my main band (get it like "my main man") Slipknot along with a lot of others with my friends Tyler (tielur) and JD. Woo!!!

      So fun times there.

      Poll in the comments. Bye.

      Along with that I can also legally drive alone, which brings me to the next part of this journal

      I got my driver license yesterday. I drove my friend Steve and a few others to the mall and Taco Bell. Woo!
      My picture ID should be here in a week. yay!

      So my plans this week include me driving places. And then finally a huge bon fire at JD's on Saturday. Woo!!!

      Well 4th of July.

      - BBQ
      - Movie (Wanted)
      - No Fireworks... BALLS!!

      So that was fucked in the ass.

      Anyhoo, I've been playing music non-stop and so far, my favorite thing to do currently is play Snow by Red Hot Chili Peppers on bass. It's loads of fun and soothing. Yay!

      Also, I've written countless riffs and trying to finish some songs for a friend. Gonna have fun with that.

      Also, I've been getting bored. And I've been listening to Psychosocial and All Hope is Gone by Slipknot. So I thought "hey, why not make a bass tab for Psychosocial?"

      So I did.

      So far, its the only bass tab out there. Yay!

      I'm gonna work on All Hope is Gone next. Hooray.

      Can't wait for Mayhem Fest either. Meet and greet wif bands. YAY!!!! WOO HOO!!!

    • Party Time for Me...

      9 years ago

      spartanfan44

      Yay!

      Friday: Good times for me. Went to JD's and started a bon fire. Second one so far. Fuck yeah. Had some dudes and nondudes over. Made some kind of beverage; vodka, whiskey, cognac, and RC cola. Amazing, minus the cola. Watched Charlie Bartlett. Excellent movie. Amazing way of portraying something close to what a kid wants in high school.

      Saturday: JD and I walked to my friend, Tyler Dombrowskie's open house. Met that boy freshman year, time flies seeing as the dude graduated (congrats to all grads). Had a SHITLOAD if foodage (mealage) and drinkage!! Fucking amazing ass foods there, man. Loved that junks.

      After that, went to JD's grandparents for four wheeling. Amazing junks, ATV's = teh shitz. Fuck yeah!

      Went back to the party, stayed the night at Tyler's. Killer time for meee. Played some good guitar and junks as well.

      Sunday: Tyler's 18th birthday (coincidentally), we helped clean up and got some beer for our trouble. Good junks. Enough to keep me sober (seeing as I had to drive home).

      Fun times man. I love parties.

      Have a good time.
