    Without even clicking the link, that's the jet black jazz one isn't it?

    /clicks link

    Sigh, yes, there she is. The sleekest bass in existence.

    Gorgeous isn't it.

    Though I have to say, it's a bit pricey for what it is. I'd fucking love one though.

    It is a bit but I reckon if I can save a bit of cash and grab one second hand then...

    Mind you, I also saw someone flogging a Sandberg California 2 VT4 on FB the other day for 800 and I would fucking love that I think. So god knows what I actually want.

    Then again, as you can see elsewhere, I'm thinking about spunking a load of cash on a bloody typewriter that I could be putting towards this so maybe my heart isn't in it! I do like my basses I have...

    @wuntyate

    Well, that's always the trick isn't it. Knowing what you what.

    If you had to strip everything that you gave a fuck about, what would those be? You have 3 things to give a fuck about.

    Go.

    Overall? I couldn't honestly tell you. My head is in 50 different places.

    All I know is I'd be fucked without the ability to create something. I've always been like that. I used to paint with oils, then music, then writing, then painting then back to music again. With sidesteps into digital art and video production.

    If I'm not making something I'm not very nice to be around.

    So I suppose ultimately whatever facilitates that is what I care about.

    Naturally, first and foremost. Which means I need a third.

    Gaming or running. Both keep me sane after the other two. Although I think. I can go without gaming, I'm not sure I can go without running.

    Running.

    So family, music (and if not, the other creation shit) and running. Three most important things.

    Ok, there we have it. Family, Music and Running.

    So, we're back to square one - Buy The Fender as it's one of your 3 :)

    Ha ha ha I see what you did there.

    I spunked part of it on a fucking typewriter now dammit. But if I sell a couple of these basses I will. I'll keep them on sale and just be patient. If they go, they go and it's meant to be. If they don't they don't. Won't stop me playing and making shit.

    Reminds me I need to see if this amp and cab still work.... Wait til you see, the amp will be fucked and that will be something else I need.

    Just making it crystal clear! And they're your choices, not mine. So it's obvious really isn't it :)

    C'mon, flex those credit cards - you could get hit by a bus tomorrow.

    If I had a credit card I would, it would be a no brainer.

    But it was that attitude that got me in trouble in the first place!!

    I would if I could get away with it :) I guess you could just sell a few and save here and there.

    Dammit, looks like the bass station might not arrive today. IT was a uk shop, but I've noticed on the tracking that it's actually coming from the Netherlands. Paid for half decent shipping but I can't see it arriving today.

    I was really hoping to have a play before tomorrow so I could take it to the studio. Bugger.

    Ah bollocks man. I'm looking forward to you letting me know what it's like.

    Yeah, I'll sell and save. I only get excited browsing for stuff that I can't buy then I get annoyed I can't buy it before accepting it and realising I'm very content with what I have. Happens, eh, most days ha ha.

    Got enough to be doing anyway. 2 albums and an EP are all approaching the nearly done state and these I think are a further little improvement on before in terms of production which is good. I've gone through recently and culled a lot of extraneous effects I have had on my vocals that were muddying shit up and I think that's helping, as well as culling some of the over-zealous vocal riders I had going on. We've also got a punchier drum sound and all in the stuff is sounding quite meaty now. Which is nice.

    Need live shit happening though. Fucking hell. Soon.

    Yeah, bit of a pisser, but this site was selling it 40 cheaper than anywhere else. Though I might have well as paid the 40 in hindsight. Too late now though. Maybe it'll arrive tomorrow.

    Haha yeah I know what you mean - I browse for what seems like years and then realise I don't need it really. Well, apart from the bass station obviously :)

    Great news on the progress though - that's really good. Maybe after you're happy with the 2 albums, that might be a time to then look into a studio type thing? Though if we're nearing the end of lockdown, maybe just gigs?

    Yeah if there as the possibility of gigs on the horizon, would probably just rent the studio round the corner from me as it's handy, all sound proofed and the guy that runs it is pretty sound. Need to get a drummer first of course... Ah the real fun part!

    Haha, and there we have it - the elusive reliable drummer. Always a complete bastard to sort out :)

    There's a good one in Glasgow, just seeing how much postage will be, good instrument for half the price. I always prefer going second hand if it's kept well.

    I think I'm probably just having a weird mid life crisis. I'll be able to play smooth jazz on the sax as I hammer out death metal lyrics on a typewriter.
