String Theory  
Had a bit of a scare today on Flickr. The More than half the pics weren't showing up of mine and of other members on Cucurbitaceae. I sent Flickr a help request because when I would click on "View my own" they were there and another member's too. But someone else joined and it seemed to have fixed it now. Let's hope that won't happen again. Since I like it so much there I got a paid account. I can't believe I finally found a site worth paying money for other than LiveJournal. It's only $25 for the year so it's even cheaper than LJ. So now I don't have a limit on how much I can upload. Free accounts are limited to 300MB a month. I've always been good about shrinking my images and not losing quality. I still shrink them even though it's unlimited now just because I think over 3,000 pixles wide is still way too huge to view. My screen is set to 1024x720 so I hate huge pics anyway. I don't need to see the atoms. I also hate scrolling left and right. And no ads, that's always a good thing. Oh the other thing I didn't like about free accounts was that if you upload more than 200 images the older ones aren't visible though they are still there if you saved the URL. That just sucks. Even photobucket lets you see stuff. But I don't have to worry about that anymore. I think a way of getting around the over 200 is putting stuff into sets because the sets get listed.

I'm very happy that I came up with a daily schedule for myself that will help me economize my time. I have a few hours set apart for drawing, music and writing. Well it's not easy getting into a reutine so I did only about 70% of what was on the list today. But what I'm happy about is that I inked a little bit of the Solan Driving pic. Hurray! Something is better than nothing. My schedule is flexible though and it can all go out the window if I decide to go out or something.

Well no plans for tomorrow which is our anniversary, but I did get myself something really awesome. Check this out.

My first electric guitar. It's a B.C. Rich Draco V. Chris helped me with the last payment as I had this on layaway for a few months. I still had three months left but I had the money and was getting so impatient. So I'm almost broke and need to rebuild my savings. At least I get paid tomorrow. Yeay! More pics behind the cut. This one's name is String Theory.

I love the angle I took this in.


It's too bad the lighting sucks in the house.

Love B.C. Rich's head stocks.

I like that it's all black on the back too. Smooth and glossy. I wish Bad Boy were black on the back.

So yeah it will be a long time before I put any videos up with String Theory. Chris can teach me at least. He knows this better than the bass guitar.

That is one of the coolest guitars I have ever seen. That company has some excellent designs. And I love the name you gave it.

Thank you. I got disheartened by not finding my Beast so I figured I'd get the Draco as I think it's a limited run and I don't want this to happen to me twice. B.C. Rich is just awesome! This guy posted all the shapes on Flicr. Check them out.

Nice! Really liking the Widow and Zombie there.
Des: Thanatos Agreesthagirion on February 4th, 2011 07:40 pm (UTC)
Yes the Zombie is cool. I also like the Virgo. They both look like Dr. Claw's MAD symbol. I would so have a face painted on them.

What a gorgeous guitar!
It looks like it was designed especially for playing music of the most richly decadent and gothic variety.
If the Cheeper could play a guitar, this is what she'd play.

Thank you. It's very Black Metal. Though I'm going to probably use it most for power metal and Melodic Death.
Hehe, I don't see Chickens being anything but country. But, another bad budgie could probably use this. Perhaps a white one.

Next thing we know, you'll be talking about the all budgie rock band.

The guitar looks awesome!!! Yeah the light is bad in my house too. I think you got some good pics of it.
Des: Bassthagirion on February 4th, 2011 01:10 pm (UTC)
Thanks. I already played with it a little. Already know a teeny piece of Breaking the Law. Ugh, not used to picks.

That is one awesomely shaped guitar! 8D String Theory's a neat name, and I'll bet it sounds pretty sweet.
Des: Bassthagirion on February 6th, 2011 03:32 am (UTC)
Thanks. It's neat, though it's hard to play while sitting down. It does have a good sound but we have an old crappy amp so I haven't really heard what it can do yet.

What a surprise you got that guitar! I didn't see that coming :)

Aaagh, you'll soon be beating me at my own game :)
Desthagirion on February 6th, 2011 01:14 pm (UTC)
Hehe, yeah I'd been keeping it to myself actually and didn't want to say anything until I had it.
Hum? And what game would that be?
kabuldurkabuldur on February 7th, 2011 11:56 am (UTC)
Hehe, I've been keeping that to myself, too. I've been trying once again to learn guitar. I am having trouble with my brain not wanting to remember stuff and have been away or working physically hard a lot, so it is not the best time to try to start learning new stuff :)

I should have known when I saw you post those chords. Don't worry. I'm primarily a bass player.
