MUSIC!

Monday, March 21, 2005
This girl in my ward, Aubrey, was having some people over to her house to jam, and she heard that I play harmonica, so she invited me too. So, Chad Phillips, Matt Evans, Amy Todd, Brittney, and I went to her house the other night. When we got there, in her living room, they had a full drum set, some guitars and a bass, amps, mics, and a piano, all ready to go. Sweet. She talked her dad into playing drums for us (which wasn't very hard), and he was awsome. Chad and Matt got on the guitars, and I sat down with my Harmonica and a mic. The girls sang and danced around. A splendid time was had by all. We started out with Wild Thing, which isn't too tough. Aubrey's uncle Rusty, showed up shortly after we started and picked up a guitar too. Matt evans tried the bass, and really liked it, so he was figuring out how to play that the rest of the night, and had a good time. We did Spoonfull, Crossroads, Wooly Bully, Fight for your Right, Blackbird, and just some blues jammin'. It felt so great to actually contribute to musical creation. They kept trying to play Satisfaction, but it wasn't working out. So then we remembered that there's a ward talent show at the end of the month, so we decided to put together a song for that. Matt, Chad and I are gonna play a song by Alice in Chains, that has a lot of harmonica in it, so that should be cool. I just gotta learn my part, because I didn't know the song before. Good times. We'll see how it goes.

Free stuff?

Friday, March 18, 2005
hey guys, I'm thinking about trying for one of the free offers on this website. I've read many reviews, and I know it works. I would just have to decide which one I want to do, then fulfill one of the offers, then get like five more people to sign up. I can't decide if I want to go for the Sony PSP, or an iPod. Let me know what you think, and if you're interested in helping me out!

Hey all. I just got back from California, Monday night. We had a pretty fun trip. Chuck had never seen the ocean before, so we went to Huntington Beach, and Newport Beach, and some tide pools. It was cloudy the whole time we were there, so it wasn't as warm as I hoped, but still fun. Tess and chuck played in the water a bit, and we all played in the sand with Max and Lily, the little cousins. They're some funny kids. On the way home, we stopped at the Cali/Nevada stateline, at the factory outlets there, and shopped a bit. I got some Air Hogs planes, which are very cool. If anybody wants to play with them with me, and you know where there's a very large grassy place, let me know! Hopefully I'll get some pictures of the trip posted pretty quick here so stay tuned! Oh, and if you were wondering what the title of this post means, then you need to read The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and/or watch the movie which is coming soon to a theater near you! (The title really has nothing to do with what I've said today, it just sounds funny.)

Today is gonna be the day...

Church was quite interesting yesterday, since we were visited by a group of Born Again Christians. Nice people, they just wanted to see what our church was like. One of them gave the closing prayer in Elder's Quorum, and it was interesting. Not too bad, just much more emotional that we would usually do it. Reminds me of my mission. Crentes locos. One of the spark plug wires in my truck was sparking, and the rubber on it was old and cracking, so I went to AutoZone and bought some new ones, but for some reason I was thinking my engine was only four cylinders, when it actually has six. So I bought the wrong wires, so today I'm going to take them back and get the right ones. Hopefully after I change them, my truck will run better too. I'm also afraid that the brake pads need changing, since the brakes are acting weird too. Oh bother.

More life

Friday, March 04, 2005
Chuck and Tess and my Mom invited me to go with them to California in a week, for a few days, so I'm really excited for that. I haven't been on a real trip in over a year, and I love going to Cali. We're going to visit my Aunt Bethany and her family, which is cool. My little cousin Lily and I are buddies (see photo below). Yay! Chuck's never been to the coast before, so that's the main reason we're going. Other than that, my life's been pretty boring lately. Ho-hum.
