Slowly it takes shape. What I forgot when I bought all these patches (or rescued them from an old jacket) was that I’d have to stitch them all on myself. Ouch.
Took The Eldest and The Boy to see American Idiot at The Kings tonight. An unusual musical, very much a string of songs with very little verbal narrative but nonetheless impressive and enjoyable. It was also nice to have a night out with the older two-thirds of the brood when I usually have the younger end!
I have wanted a BC Rich guitar since before I was at university. I had money down on a Warlock many, many years ago but didn’t keep up the payments so I never got it. Well, I’ve not found a Warlock (well, I have but the guy on Gumtree who’s selling it isn’t replying to emails so I guess he’s sold it) but I did just pick up this Beast, a model they didn’t make back then and which has since been discontinued. It’s not the Kerry King limited run, which would have been eye-wateringly expensive, but it’s gorgeous all the same.
Now I just need to learn how to play the damn thing.
