I'm evaluating a multi-media course on blogging from the folks at Simpleology. For a while, they're letting you snag it for free if you post about it on your blog.

It covers:

  • The best blogging techniques.
  • How to get traffic to your blog.
  • How to turn your blog into money.

I'll let you know what I think once I've had a chance to check it out. Meanwhile, go grab yours while it's still free.

Emo Santa!

It took me about 3 hours to conjure up Emo Santa and it was was well worth every second.

Hey kids, if you're naughty this year, Santa won't leave you any presents.... cause he'll be too busy crying, alone in a dark corner, in the fetal position about how much his life sucks!

Merry Christmas To All!!!!

Just Found Out My Birthday Is On...

Just Found Out My Birthday Is On World AIDS Day and it will be and has been EVERY YEAR since 1988 . Great.... What fun. I know it's an established day already, but can't we just celebrate the coming Christmas season and my birthday on the first of December and remember AIDS on a different season. YOU KNOW WHAT?!?! Just for that I officially will personally make it my mission to discover the perfect cure for AIDS just to rid it from association with my birthday!!! Arrggg!

It's My Birthday!!!

So it's my 21st birthday today and it's snowing like crazy. What more could I ask for? This is awesome! Unfortunately, I will be working all day until dinner and then performing in the Songs of the Season concert again till about 9:30. As I celebrate my birthday, I like to remember that birthdays would suck without people to share it with. So Thank You, friends and family, without you birthdays would be boring.

American Gangster

I just saw the new movie staring Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe that came out last friday, American Gangster. If you haven't seen the new movie American Gangster yet, you should. And if for no other reason, you should check it out because it's based on an accurate and true story. Check this out Now that's some real American history.

Just to fair warn you there are some pretty graphic scenes and a considerable amount of nudity(it is an R rated movie after all), but it portrays the story the way it actually happened, just check out the sources on wikipedia. Well then, you have two choices. Go check it out, or listen to everyone else talk about how awesome it was. Go watch it already :P

10 Essential Websites Every Guitar Player Should Utilize

I have currently been playing for 7 years at this point in my life and have learned a lot over the past couple years at college, but I can honestly say that I would not be even half as good at playing guitar if it wasn't for some of these sites. Don't just look at these sites as links. These links are vital tools to becoming a better guitar player, and heres why....


This site is truly a plethora for the growing guitarist complete with lessons, forums, product reviews, an online composer, and my most personal favorite the "Grove Builder" With the Grove Builder you can set up and play chord progressions that loop in order to practice soloing or drill a tedious melody line. And if you're a Bass Guitar Player check out


While has just about all the resources one could think of, if your specifically looking to learn a new technique or skill on the guitar such as mastering modes, scales, tapping, chordal structure, sweep picking, or tremolo picking then is the place to be. has some of the most professional, but easy to understand lessons I remember when starting out. It is perfect for the beginning guitarist.

3. - Chord House is an absolute must if you need to learn how to play a new scale up and down the neck. It has every scale, chord, and alternate tuning imaginable for guitar as well as a section for piano chords and scales.


When I just starting out(and guitar tabs weren't illegal), Musician Forums was a sub project of Now however it is which is a massive music review site. Personally I think that these forums have the most knowledgeable musicians to ask questions or search for answers out of any of the links listed here.

5. Virtual Playground

If you need drum loops this site is a must. I mean seriously check it out, how much more could you ask for?!? It has tons of drum machine emulators from the 70s-90s. If you need more, go out and buy one :P


Arguably the best guitar tablature software ever invented. And it just keeps getting better. With Guitar Pro 5 it now has a "Realistic Sound Engine" you have to hear to believe.... This isn't just some crappy midi creation program. It blows all others out of the water because it actually sounds real. What CGI has done for animation Guitar Pro does for Music.


Ever want to learn everything you could about classical guitar? Now you can and all in one convenient package.

8. Harmony Central

Now Harmony Central is a huge resource one could go on for hours about, but I would like to focus on their guitar software section. If your a serious guitar player you can seriously benefit from some of the amazing software that is out there nowadays, some of which is free. Check it out!!!


Much like was for classical is a jazz information rich website. Just do it already :)

10. their pdf search)

WAIT!!!!! Now I know what you're thinking I got lazy on number 10 and used a cop out. Not True!!! Here's the deal I'm not talking about just searching google like you might do every day. I'm talking about using the "filetype:pdf" in front of a search query like "jazz" to come up with a result such as an ebook on Jazz Scale Theory. I'm not kidding you really can find useful guitar ebooks out there on guitar. Just try it, click the link and change the word guitar to whatever you want to search for!

Well That's The List! Be Sure to Drop Me a Comment with Your Favorites!

Google Is Really Starting To Suck!

Google Is Really Starting To Suck! Currently I am on the search for a descent site for vocalists. Last summer I had no problem finding some good resources, however currently all my searches lead to sites which are useless to me like,,,, and a whole lotta blogs...

Frustrated, and thinking "surely a search like 'learn how to sing' will yield something," I tried it and you'll never guess what I found. Crap, Crap, and MORE CRAP. To credit Google, there were maybe three half-way descent sites, but the 2nd and 3rd of the top ten results were links to

Well Google, I sure am Glad I now know that 1,566 people on 43 things want to learn how to sing. Now if I can only find a few people who already know how, and can teach me how to resonate in certain parts of my body to sing really LOUD....

Unfortunately, it's been a long time since I've been up on how Google's search algorithm works. But, based on appearances I will probably start using MSN and Yahoo a lot more, maybe even drop Google altogether if this crap keeps up. And while MSN does tend to yield lower quality sites at least they're relevant.

Time is an important commodity, Google!

Free NIV Bible on MP3 - Stream & Download

Back a few weeks ago, when I needed to listen to the Bible on mp3 for my "New Testament History and Literature" class, it was easy to find it for free. Specifically, I was able to find this page Free NIV Bible on MP3, really easily. Lately, thanks to those who like to use search engine optimization, if you type Bible mp3 you will find mostly sites that you have to pay for. What is this world coming to? Well I just thought I would throw one more link out there for the boys that offer it for free :)
