I hope you all had a great weekend and are rip roaring through the week. If not, smile, preserve. It’s hump day again tomorrow and we head towards another weekend.
I wasn’t sure what to write about, when to write it and even writing at all. I’m sat at home with some tea, catching up on TV and mustering energy to engage in some drum pratice.
I try and get at least an hour a day in, practicing rudiments on the snare drum (a pad in this case to keep my neighbours happy) then a warm up then a song I can’t play.
The rudiments ?
Yup basically the basis of any aspiring drummer and the key to successful playing. It’s laborious, repetative but with perseverance you can apply to any part of the kit and transform your playing. They teach you co-ordination, dexterity, posture, grip not to mention excercise and make muscles supple.
I talked J through this and when I mentioed “grip” “control” “stroke” and “head”...... yeah I can hear you giggling..... she did too..... smutty harlot! lol .
Let’s not even go into what happened when I said “I’m learning latin percussion and I have to learn to play bongos”
Well okay, let’s lol
She looks at me with that “how very dare you!” Glare, I try and back peddle. (I think it’s a Brit thing combined with nerves to auto apologise for every fucking thing you say)she smiles, winks cuddles up to me on the couch and she says “You have mine mastered like a pro, oh look it’s practice time soon. Better go warm up”
No arguments from me...... lol
Did I mention I love this woman?
I wasn’t used to being out smutted until 3DX but I can assure you all, it’s come in very handy.
Let not go into keeping time and rhythm.
Okay, let’s...... lol I’m kidding!
So. I’ve been DJing a bit more and secured a few events in game and it’s been fun!
Last Saturday while being on call and a loose end I DJed for a truth or dare night and ended up divulging stuff about me live over the mic. I was whisked back 10 or so years. I don’t mind and it brought back many, many happy memories. A fantastic night with some fantastic friends.
Then on Sunday, I was asked to DJ at a Russian room at shortish notice. A little nervous and had to build a set on the fly but I think it went okay. I had fun doing what I do best. A mix of brand new tracks including one from my all time favourite band. Met some great people and got to spin alongside some great people. Fantastic!
As for J and I ?
Well that’s still early days but it feels like Ive known and loved her forever. It’s such a comfortable sensation. Some would say we’re like a pair of love starved Teenagers but we’re not that bad lol. We’re just two souls who were cast adrift and have found solace in one another. She’s here with me right now, not long home (yes she’s calling my house home, I think it’s cute!) dying her hair. I’m on the couch writing this and waiting for her to come down and we’re getting take out.
What I love is we can talk openly about anything and when she leans in and tells me she’s horny. I love it when she sends me messages if we’re at a coffee house or in company and she knows exactly what to say, how subtle or explicit to express what she’s saying and the grin I get, either from a pic or from accross a table.
It’s naughty, it’s a little dangerous and it’s downright exciting. The thrill..... wow.......
I feel sexy, desirable and it’s so real. I felt it on game and I don’t mean to belittle anything I’ve experienced in game but I can actually see the fire in her when she looks at me. I finally see the good in me and what she sees in me. I look at her and I feel loved. It consumes me and it feels amazing. I sometimes have to remember how to breathe.
Okay I’ve just read this back and I’m rambling on.
Oh if you haven’t seen the post on events, I’m DJing at “The Fucktory” for Pandorra on the 16th of March.
I have my work cut out, following in the footsteps of the Amazing Stellania, the Dangerous Divas and Dudes who I understand totally shook asses and just about left foundations intact! Shaken, not stirred!
No pressure there then! lol
I’d love to see you there! If anyone has any birthdays, anniversaries and so on and would like a mention live on air, maybe a dedication or 2, let me know and I’ll try to accommodate. I’ll be playing some requests too seeing as I haven’t done so for a while.
Come along if you can and support a great room, great host and yours truly on the decks!
Until the next time.
Stay safe, have fun and be lucky
