Re: brag: my place

its just to simple... not enough improv for me... to thought out and planned... no exploration. I am in the process of purchasing a Languedoc best 10k i will have ever spent...

Nice place though =)

Re: brag: my place

yeah, it's simple and formulaic, definitely. but it's hard to do anything different and stay in that modern rock/pop format that i love so much. that's why i have my side projects. radio music and Eb phrygian don't really mix imo lol. fwiw, i love our lyrics (most of which were not written by me) and i think the vocal and guitar melodies are very strong. but i'm not trying to pimp the band or anything lol.

that's awesome though about the languedoc (not to hijack my own thread lol). do they have them in any stores? (vegas has that huge huge guitar store, right? or am i making things up again lol)

Re: brag: my place

in summation, personal web development, my firm's development (though that's required more investment than not), drugs(!), very efficient outsourcing and not having to pay for school any more lol

I laughed when I saw you mention it earlier in the thread because I just recently read a year old thread on Tucker Max's message board where he recommended it. Tim went and posted a few times in that thread and there were also a couple speeches/interviews by him within..very interesting stuff. I ordered the book and am looking forward to reading it, hopefully on the beach..leave for vacation Saturday morning).

Re: brag: my place

good choice. i discovered the book about a week ago and you're the fifth person to tell me they've ordered it. it's very readable even if you're not a book guy (i read through code books almost every day, so i can digest just about anything). pm me or start a thread when you're done, we can probably have a nice chat about it.

Read this book about a year ago. Pretty sure Ferris didn't write anything about dropping out of school, selling drugs, and still having your wealthy parents help you out. All while posting pictures of your apartment on a poker website.

Re: brag: my place

well i don't and never did sell drugs and my parents haven't "helped me out" for awhile. i'm perfectly self sustaining. ferris didn't cover a lot of topics, that doesn't mean i can't engage in them. 'preciate the positive message though


meleader, pm'd

Sounds good Alex, I can already tell this is stuff I definitely want to incorporate into my life so I'd love to talk about it.

Awesome place, I think it'd be worth the brag just for the Mesa Boogie.

That's like my dream living space you've got too

Very classy. Where'd you get the artwork on the walls? What's that piece in the living room?

Re: brag: my place

the small left board (on my bed) has a sketch of some of the designs for my next facebook application. the one on the right has a list of functions, methods and database structure.

the big board has a checklist of money coming in this week, projects and their statuses, my assistant's phone number and a small list of meetings. of course, all of this is online too but i really love whiteboards.

Hey OP, congratulations on the brag. I just wanted to say that you wound very mature and self-confident. Things like "that's okay, this music is not for everyone" really shows your confidence and hgih self esteem compared to most of BBV that would just flame back.. Sik brag
