Common Ground

I recently got a PS3, a nice piece of retro tech and even got a boatload of games for it!  Spotify, Netflix, & Hulu are all plugged in now and Digimon Allstar Rumble has been a big hit with my buddies.  I have more friends now, but it's funny, everybody wants a slice.  I guess I'll keep busy!  I'm learning it's OK to turn a friend down if I need some space.  Generally, I love hanging out with my peeps!  My music is going really well and I just tried out my new DJing rig.  This is a new midi controller that essentially does all the work for me yet I will add that sweet Phrosty D touch!  Yeah, I'm still your favorite nobody cuz it's a long way to the top if you wanna rock 'n roll.  It would be so cool if some random guy recognized me in public and was like, "Woah, you're Phrosty D, love your music bro!"...Well this hasn't happened yet but a guy can and will dream.  Never will give up my dreams!

I'm in the final edit phase of my new rap, and just taking it bit by bit.  I really don't want to spend too much of my life on my laptop, so I practice the actual craft of music more.  Riffing loosely on my guitar a couple times every day and plinking out melodies on my pro-mini Casio keyboard.  Instagram is a newer means of sharing music and the shit works, seems like a few people always drop likes.  Naturally, I've diverted some of my creative energies there.  Fun but I don't take it as seriously.  Maybe that's for the best, bringing me back to my jam roots.

My roomie and I beat "Mandarin's Court" level in Marvel Ultimate Alliance last weekend which was good times fo' sho'!  The game Too Human is also rad, but last time I played only 10 minutes and got stuck... what a bummer!

I still don't have any paying music students, but I give free lessons to friends and family here and there.
I have also stepped into an informal mentor role with a few people, though I'll be the first to admit I don't have all the answers.

Me 'n the roomie have been good and on an even keel.  It always helps to find the common ground.
