I made a bunch of Guitprov songs yesterday.

One was on my new guitbass. I named it Chris Ballew because almost all of his music is recorded with guitbass and bassitar.

And I've been on a 90s heartthrob kick lately.

Here's a bunch of songs named after dudes from things I watched in the 90s.

And here's the other heartthrob songs from other days:

And last, but not least

I made a playlist of them, too:

I hope you are thankful.

Today I am Thankful for the Presidents of the United States of America!

The band....

From youtube:

My goodness do I love the Presidents of the United States of America and every musical thing Chris Ballew does!

This is one of my favorites. I mess up the words and play pretty novice-ly and the guitbass will not stay in tune at all, but I like my version quite a bit for all it's flaws.

I made a guitbass!

Many videos back ( I wrote about this guitar and how Guitar Center wouldn't buy it. I had to do something with it!

I started putting stickers on it and finally realized that I always wanted a guitbass ever since I found out about them!

I'll write more on!

Here's some other Presidents and Chris Ballew songs I've covered:

Last Girl on Earth -

Boot Got Grounded -

Munky River -

I hope you're having a good day.

New stuff just on the Ponder Couch:

Here's pictures of my guitbass!

I love this guitbass!

It won't stay in tune for anything, but I love it!

The strings vibrate to the point of uncontrollable distortion, but I love it!

I had to file down the bridge thing at the top of the neck so the strings would fit in it, but it was worth it!

I talked to the guy behind this site that is all about guitbasses and bassitars! He was very helpful and told me directly what gauge of guitar strings to buy to make an acoustic guitbass.

I thought I had more to say about this, but I can't think of it right now.

Oh well.

I love my guitbass!

Halloween is over.

Now on to Thanksgiving!

I probably won't post very often during November.

I'm doing NaNoWriMo again this year.

I did it several years ago, tried again the next year, and just haven't bothered again until this year.

But I'm trying again!

So I spend a good portion of most evenings working on that instead of writing here.

But I wanted to post tonight because I feel Thankful!

15 years ago on Halloween Melissa and I had our first date.

15 years ago tonight Melissa agreed to officially be my girlfriend.

That picture was taken right around then. We can't remember if it was from the day before, the day of, or the next day, but it's the closest we have to a picture from our "real" anniversary.

I'm thankful for a lot of things, but I am most thankful for her every day.

In case I don't post again, from everyone here to everyone out there:
