30 Day Song Challenge - Day 12 - A Song From A Band You Hate

Why bother listening to something that I hate ? So, I can't really come out with a video to share with. You can post a challenge to me if you want, and I shall post it in the next post.

I really don't know how to end a post like this, so... See you in the next post I guess.

'All In One' Post

It's been so long since the last update, because I was pretty occupied last two weeks. What I completed last two weeks were two presentations, few assignments and reports, had some fun going out, and suffered intensively when I backed to my desk.

...hours and hours I sat in front of my laptop. What I did was ...

Start the music player...

...Open the assignment and relevant folder

Open Google Chrome...

...Facebook, switch songs, checking emails, blogspot, stalking

Scopus, my.monash, Google Books, pdf...

...Type a few words, end text citation

Facebook, switch songs, checking emails, blogspot, stalking...

...Grab my guitar, play a few riffs, put it back

Open the assignment and relevant folder...


....and repeat...

*********************

I thought I suffered a lot, until my friend told me that he has 2 assignments that due on Monday and he didn't even started doing it yet, and it's already Friday today. And it excludes midterm exams, current and upcoming lab reports.

Yet, people suffers, just that what makes them suffers is different. Me ? Having 8 pages of experiment discussion to rush. The difficulty of it makes me suffer, the length it makes me suffer. A new guitar piece that I suppose to learn and play to my tutor on Sunday, I didn't even start looking at it yet. Quizzes and tests are coming, and I didn't even start my revisions yet. There's an upcoming cellular metabolism experiment that requires own designation of experiment, I didn't started the design yet. I love my university life, but I hate it when what I love turned to be my source of unhappiness.

********************
I am a very random person. I am a little bit crazy. I noticed that I change my favours and preferences sudden and quick, and these changes are usually drastic. However, still, there are something original that existed within this drastic changes. It's like a root of a tree or the ornithine carbon skeleton of citrulline. I like different things but I like things with classic touch. I don't like things because others like it, I like things because I like it. A beautiful thing that I like will always look beautiful no matter how, even I abandoned it for so long. It applies to everything I liked so far, including girls (the 'like' like, not the 'love' like). Anyway it's just a little something about me. This also explain why classic things caught me first before a modern or a popular one.

********************
And I am so happy that I successfully played 'He's A Pirate' without referring to sheet music. Sungha Jung is way better, I meant his technique, not his version. Ohww, the gratification when I successfully tab a song in guitar solo by myself, who can understand ? The key is lowered though, but it can be perfected with a capo. Here's the video...

Hmm, if only if I have better voice recording device and webcam.

30 Days Song Challenge - Day 10 - A song from your favourite band

Coldplay, ACDC, Gun N' Roses, Queen, Evanescence, The Beatles, The Foo Fighters, Lifehouse, My Chemical Romance, The Fray, Maroon 5, Vertical Horizon, Oasis, The Corrs, Paramore etc etc... These are all the bands that should appear in a hardcore rock music lover, like me. All of them are my favourites, selecting one song from them to share here is quite tough. Still, I decided. 'Times Like These' by The Foo Fighters. The Foo Fighters is not so famous in main stream music, but what I admire about this band is the members, they are very versatile especially the front man Dave Grohl. He was the writer, the guitarist, the bassist, the drummer, the pianist the keyboardist when the band was formed before other members joined in. This is certainly one of the best song from them in my opinion. So, try this song, who knows you might like it.


The world is a sad and miserable place, but love makes you survive.

I love what I write.
