Next week: buy guitar (or something)
So yes: I have decided that the next week shall see the end of my policy of fearfully avoiding positive choices, and instead will mark the beginning of a policy of instrument-ship.
I have tried this before, to the extent of scrawling "learn the play the guitar leanr to play the guitar" repeatedly then leaving the notes scattered about my room in the hope that my pro-active self might influence my lethargic self, from beyond the grave so to speak.
Am inspired by Prolapse, Gorky's and Bikini Kill, as well as less cult bands such as Computer Cougar. Plus of course, by the non-guitar sounds of Aesop and Del tha Funky Homosapien, et al. And the sound of That Petrol Emotion, who rule and I am sure would stil rule if I listened to more than one song by them (VP, for the record). All rule. Etc. Must learn instrument, the alternative is far, far worse.
Will attempt to compile a summery time album tomorrow of good stuff, then persuade a housemate to copy it onto cd as my own burner is a spent force. It will feature the aforementioned, plus of course others, for no band may feature more than once.
I can see my departure being delayed until Tuesday, but I will endeavour to do my best and depart upon the Monday, which is itself already over four hours old.
