i've recently taken up a new obsession; the electric guitar. just this past weekend i learned some of the old classics by the rolling stones, alice cooper, kiss and even some recent hits by the killers. my experience didn't start out very glamorous though; i was boo..d off the stage the first few times. (evidently the electric guitar is very important to rock music because when i miss a few notes everyone freaks and the song does not sound good at all.) anyway, i kept practicing until i eventually got my first gig and two new sponsors. although it was a paying gig i actually only got paid $75...something about the hotel room being trashed?...idk. i've played several more gigs since then and i finally earned enough money to buy new clothes (i bought this grunge/riot looking school girl outfit...it's bad!) and a new guitar. being on the stage is exciting! i totally feed off the cheers from the crowd! i've done backyard bashes, played in the prison and even went to europe! the lifestyle is draining though. i play well into the night after practicing all day. my fingers hurt, my back aches, my head hurts. i am probably too old to be having this much fun this kind of way. and i think i embarrass my girls too. they told me they did not want any of their friends to watch me perform. what's up with that? i suggested they join me and we start our own rock band. i am not kidding you guys...and no, i am not dreaming. okay...maybe it is just a game...in my living room...but while i am rock'n, it's real..i am a star...i am famous...i am the guitar hero!
