I'm about to go to bed now. Weird how I got through this whole day, and no one mentioned it was leap day. Not one person!

I'm not including media, btw (slow news day, I guess).

Davey Jones, formerly of the Monkees, died today. [edit: I now see that you know that. ] I think Tsu was a bit thrown to hear a one-time heart throb dropped dead of a heart attack.

I got a kick out of the old Monkees TV show. They were masters of silliness. I liked their music as well.

I really want one of these.

They are so awesome, expect they have now got 2.1 million orders and they currently only have a stock of 10 thousand.

Fast forward to 1:04 - 1:09 (left video), that is Rhody child having her five seconds of fame on local news,
giving her support to local singer Erika Van Pelt from South Kingstown, Rhode Island on American Idol.

Rhody...

When I was 8 years old, I had a ukelele. My biggest motivation then was to become a rock star, like the Beatles or Monkees - so I could get chicks.

When I was a pre-teen, I got a POS cheap acoustic guitar with a badly warped neck. You would have needed c-clamps to fret the notes, though the timing would have been (predictably) problematic for playing any kind of tune. Eventually, I figured out that if I was to get good at stringed music, I would have to learn to evaluate the guitar, fix the neck and bridge and nut, if required, and then learn how to dress the frets. This was a valuable lesson. By the time I got to college, I could make OK bucks buying guitars, fixing them up and reselling. Then, I branched out into electric guitars and amps. It's so amazing what college kids 40+ years ago would sell to get a weekend's party-money when the gear could be refurbished cheaply. Unfortunately, there are very few people like me still in the business around here, and lots of nice gear goes unrepaired and unused.
