RE: Talents You Wish You Had
Yeah wouldn't hurt to be better at music.... I'd also like to paint like Alex Grey and be an F1 driver...and I'd like to be good at some sport, I don't care which one cause I don't care about sports...but I do care about lookin dead sexah, and as I web developer I can tell you that I look like someone who spends a lot of time at his desk.


Heres a little anecdote that would get tossed around on the 'ol bass forum:

Isaac Stern (violinist) was once confronted by a middle age lady after a concert. She gushed "Oh, I'd give my life to play like you!"
"Lady", said Stern acidly, "That I did!"

I wish I had the courage to do whatever I had to do, even if it meant offending everyone in a five-mile radius.

No, you don't have to agree with me on everything. You can argue all you want, since I welcome all viewpoints. Come! Come! Let's have a well-reasoned banter.

I really wish I could tolerate stupidity.

I have a good guitar, I took lessons, I practiced.

But I suck at it.

Same. I have owned a guitar for 11 years. I don't play much anymore (that's a bit of an understatement), but I did put in a decent amount of time into it. I just ain't that good. I never took proper lessons though, just taught myself. I have been tossing around the idea of selling my guitars and amp for a few years. Maybe I should. Eh, I'll probably at least hold onto my acoustic. It ain't worth anything anyhow. My (good) electric is worth a few sheqels, and my amp is as well.

I am an alright runner. I've ran half-marathons in the past. I just ain't terribly fast. I don't enjoy running at all, but it is beneficial, especially if you are in the military. Back when I had to run a lot shit ton I only got decent times. My fastest mile and a half was 10:36, meanwhile there were a few people around the age of 50 that could do the same in under 8 minutes. I actually threw up after getting my 10:36 time. Dodgy Now that I don't have to run nearly as much now that I am a reservist my mile and a half time is at about 12-12.5 minutes. Well, you know, plus I am getting a bit older. On a bad day, and in bad conditions I might even get close to 13, which has happened to me.

edit: I also which I could be tolerable at singing. I don't want don't even want to wish for too much. I don't wanna be good, just tolerable. I have no range, no pitch control, no singing talent whatsoever. Only person I know who sings worse than me is my father. Oh well, can't have it all I suppose.

Theremin.





And digeridoo. Big Grin




As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

No you don't. Really you don't. You'd have to be stupid to do that. Consider

I know, I can't even look at myself in the mirror.

I wish I could cut my own hair. I mean, it is so long it keeps getting in my eyes.
