Had a nice morning visit from @Ahhh Girl and Ahhh Mom. They saw where I’ve been living since my divorce and we watched Good Ol’ Freda on DVD.

Ahhh Girl and I were wearing the same shirt (mine was actually a gift from Ahhh Girl–hers was a different color).

By the way thanks again for the Elvis keychain–I need to send you something!

Would that have been a Dissenters shirt, @Expert Textpert?

I have been invited for a interview on Thursday with HMV as a Sales Assistant. They are opening a new store where I live. 

good luck!

HMVs here became Sunrise Records and, I do think they’re a better chain overall, but I definitely miss HMV if only for the middle school CD buying nostalgia

I have been absent from the forum for most of the summer as I have been busy with other things in my life.  I’ve been meaning to come back on, but every time I decide to catch up, I see the over 100 unread topics and decide to postpone catching up.  I need to make a daily habit of logging on as I did in highschool.  Maybe it will be another goal of mine.  I’ve been pretty busy this summer with work and social happenings.  I’ve fallen in and out of depression several times, but I’m surviving.  One of my best buddies in the area that I’ve known since I moved here has started dating this gal that I got him together with which means I now hardly see him, making my options of people to hang out with limited.  I’ve also done a number on my Beatles music collection, as I’ve shared in the CD collection thread, and should also share in the vinyl collection thread.

Beyond all that, the biggest news is I’ve been working on an album.  That’s right, y’know the music kind  I currently have 9 songs written and plan to write 5 more to make 14 track album like the old Beatles ones.  It started back in October of 2020 when I wrote a song called Golden Saphire.  Then in the space of then to May of this year, I wrote 3 more songs just for fun, one of which is a love lost number called “Wubba Lubba Dub Dub” after Rick’s catchphrase in Rick and Morty which means “I am in great pain”, and another is called “The Meadows”, which I think will be the title track of the album and as some of you may know is “Las Vegas” in English.  Then I wrote a 5th song one night all at 1 in the morning.  The whole song came together magically, and a week later I played it for a friend of mine, and they told me it was the saddest song they’d ever heard.  That was about when I decided I wanted to make an album.  Since then I’ve written 4 more songs, and have various unpolished ideas that may turn into the last 5.

Now the goal is to record the songs.  I’ve recorded ukulele demos from my phone, but I want to make proper recordings of my songs as they all aren’t acoustic ukulele songs.  For example “The Meadows” is supposed to be a bigger hard rock sort of number.  The challenge is getting proper recording equipment.  The stuff I would need to buy costs about $140 which isn’t a ton, but I want to do some practice mixes with my apple earbud mic to mess around with the art of music produdction before I drop the dough.  I may share those when I get them polished.

Am genuinely annoyed by how god damn atrocious ‘Free Guy’ is. A film that has the exact same basic storyline as so many spewed out Hollywood blockbusters do yet was made out to be original. I think that’s what’s pissed me off so much as the reviews I read made it out to be some original one-off. The film is abysmal crap that would have normal crap being smug about how much better it was tho. 

Earlier I saw ‘The Courier’, an interesting film but never a thriller as it was described. About to see ‘Don’t Breathe 2’. 

One other thing that annoyed me a lot was a notice after the trailers saying the film was about to start so turn your phones off etc only for another five minutes of adverts to follow. One of which was a two minute advert telling me why the cinema is so good I should go. I’m in the fucking cinema, I don’t need to be be told how great it is. 

I hate being bullshitted and have my time wasted by pointless garbage

More positive news is that I’m booked to go to Aberdeen which will be the first overnight trip I’ve been on since December 2020.

My HMV interview went very well today. The people who did the interview were friendly and put me at ease. They asked me about my music, film, gaming and technology interests as well as questions about customer services. They were also very impressed with my preparation.

I’ve been reading lots of books the year, and I’m still doing so. I feel like writing one of my own, even if just for my own enjoyment. I may start by listing all the elements I like from what I’ve read, and start laying out a plot sequence.

In Aberdeen for tonight’s football. Love being in Aberdeen and such good timing to get away from normality after so long stuck in the same locality.

A group from an old workplace are talking about meeting up. I know how John felt about Beatles reunion talk. I’ve moved on and simply don’t feel like it, even though there’s no real bad blood there.
