A return to a usual blog here, hope you're doing well, after the 2,000 milestone, this thing still seems to be snowballing, so I thought I'd post something while I had literally nothing to do, this whole "musical break" thing isn't what it's cracked up to be, I think half of my problem is that I'm still a bit frazzled from last night's awesome Superbowl!
Yes indeedy readers, I'm not so much a supporter of a specific team, nor an American, however, I thoroughly watching NFL games, and after last years Colts/Saints Superbowl, hopes were high for 45, it was the Pittsburgh Steelers vs Green Bay Packers, and 2 very good friends of mine came over to my place to watch it, we got a pizza, I made my own nachos, we had pretzels, coke and watched what turned out to be a damn close game until around 4am, it was fantastic, I honestly couldn't have thought of a better way to spend Superbowl sunday, laughs were had, we were stuffed with stupid amounts of junk food, though just for the record, I do not condone the half time show, it might have been the worst thing I've ever witnessed on television...
But thanks Rich & Rob, I had a great laugh, here's hoping it goes ahead next year...
So yeah, how're things? not so bad right now I suppose, this musical break is troubling me though, I feel somewhat lost, and when I try to learn something I can't keep up and lose interest, I can't even think of writing, because I have no reason to write, so I'm in a difficult spot, what do I do now? I don't know, as long as I do not turn into a recluse who rambles philosophically in the third person all the time, then I suppose that's good, I need to re-discover the fun I was having with music a few years ago, how I'll do that, I don't know, a few offers have rolled in, I'm going to a couple of auditions, I'll see if I feel the vibe's going on, if so, who knows what might happen, maybe something might kick off, maybe not, only time will tell I suppose!
So, what do you make of that new side bar on the left there? snazzy eh, I made it myself!
I have ventured onto the web phenomenon that is Twitter, and it's so much fun to see the rich and famous (Sir Alan Sugar and Piers Morgan, I'm looking at you!) taking pot shots at each other, along with hearing breaking news, before the news people get a hold of it, it's pretty cool and as the sidebar says @LukeClarkeBlog, the most inventive hashtags get featured in the blog!
I've got 13 followers, I feel well special!
So, last night I was saddened to hear of the passing of guitar legend Gary Moore, known mainly for his work with Thin Lizzy, I personally preferred his solo work and collaborations with blues guitarists, he was an extremely talented individual, who sadly passed away yesterday, on holiday in Spain, age 58, no age at all is it really...I'd never been a huge fan to be honest with you guys, however, I was always a fan of the thick tone he managed to achieve and how emotive he managed to play, so there really isn't much I can say, except thank you Gary.
I bet the line-up at the Great Gig In The Sky is awesome these days...
For now, that's me done, I'll blog again soon!
