Art & Creating Beauty – Come Play In May

Uh….I suck at art.

Except picmonkey. Well, I have photoshop but I’m lazy and PicMonkey gives me the ability to be lazy and still make fun memes because dude a picture and a one liner never goes out of style.

Today I created:

coffee-chick

Because I gotta tell you I was tired this morning. Bone-weary tired. But then I got it together and started my morning and had a shower and had buckets of coffee and uploaded chicken videos to YouTube and they will be on the ChickenCam page in about ten minutes and I felt like this:

flowing-hair-horse-mane-coffee-shower

Isn’t it fun to create simple art that communicates easily to others exactly how you are feeling?

It’s not going to end up in the Met but whatever, I was never going to end up in the Met for anything so it’s not like I’m missing out on my dreams.

Broken Guitar Strings and Rookie Mistakes

Who has two thumbs and broke their first guitar string today?

That’s right! This gal!

The only thing that could make that story better is something silly, right? How about it broke because I was tuning the wrong string?

Yep. I did that.

Another thing. I’ve been practicing two chords since Friday (also known as the first day in my life I ever played my guitar) and was wondering why my strum sounded different than the tutorial. I tuned the guitar and made sure the little line was right in the middle. Over and over I checked.

Then I saw a block diagram and realized my guitar strings were tuned to the wrong notes!

I feel so silly!

Knowing the correct notes I got to tunin’ and was fine until the fifth (second?) string. I was turning that little knob and nothing was happening.

You know I was turning the wrong knob, right?

I figured it out while I was picking the string and suddenly the string next to it broke and I was all how did that happen??

Oh.

Wrong knob.

Now I feel like a knob.

Guess who has two thumbs and is going to Guitar Center tonight for more strings?

Yep.

This gal.
