I have been playing Rocksmith lately. It is a lot of fun, I am not sure how good it would be to learn to play guitar, but as someone who is moderately ok at guitar I enjoy it quite a bit.

The Pros:
I am playing my sweet ass guitar
It gets me to practice songs I normally wouldnt think to try to play in both chords and solos
I like most of the songs on the game
It is fun

The Cons:
I dont have time to actually memorize most of the songs I play after the game is over I would not be able to repeat the song.
The game doesnt explain things very well
I rehearse a song a bunch of times then go to play it in the actual game and it is different.
since the game doesnt stop ever if my fingers get out of place I dont feel I have time to look at my hand without missing all the next notes.

Oh, Hello

Back in September I followed a series of internet links that eventually led me onto a kickstarter project by a Graphic Novelist named Eliza Frye. What really caught my attention was her promotion video (click here to watch) It was stylish and beautifully animated with a very smooth jazz song in the background.


one thing is I really like Kickstarter as a place to purchase things I would like to have, sometimes the things may cost a bit more when purchased at the "getting funded" period of a project, but you also end up feeling good knowing you helped someone do something.


Well that all said her Kickstarter was kickstarted and today I received my book which my name is lovingly printed in it and a simple handwritten message from the creator "Joy." was on page 1.

As mentioned about the video Eliza has a beautiful art style which contrasts heavily between lights, darks, colors and textures on every page there is well thought out detail mixed with carefree expressions that mix well with the stories that have varying themes of murder, sex, intrigue, escape, life, family and death.


In then end I will say it is a very cool little hardcover book that had a lot of care put into it.


Now I just need to figure out when it will be New Years eve in Paris.
