I love nerd humor, but nerds predate the current "geeks are sexy" trend. Old school nerds FTW, nothing but. Besides that I just dig clever humor and amazing natural pictures. Bonus points for awesome band references.
Like I mentioned in the other video with the remaining two songs from our "set," this is our adult rock band playing. We got together and took lessons from the bassist at a music academy where my daughter is learning piano. They've done kid and teen rock band for a while, but we are the first adult class to try it. We've only been playing together four months, the same amount of time I've been playing drums.
This was a tremendous experience. I wish I hadn't waited until I was 35 to do this. I encourage you all to get out and learn something. Perform somewhere. Don't just click "Save" or "Like" on the next motivational picture that speaks to you! Go out there and do it yourself. Then post your video here and we'll all share in your excitement. :-)
OK MLKSHK friends, This is me playing the drums for our "rock band" recital last night. I bought a drum set in February and have been playing since then. With us is a lead singer who's never sung solo, a guitarist who's been playing for two years, and our instructor and professional musician on the bass.
I've been playing guitar for 20 years, and bass for about 12 or so. I didn't realize until the night before though that I've never played a "real" show. I've played guitar in front of friends and family, but never total strangers and never with more than just one other person. This was a dream come true, despite not getting to rock a few harder songs and despite a few flubs.
I hope you'll take a look. I admit I drew strength from several of you here who have performed publicly, so thank you for sharing your personal performances.
Show us your keys, MLKSHKers! When you're out and about, what keys do you always carry with you? For me, it's a my minivan ignition key with the church key on it, and my house key on the #1 Dad key chain (which typically stays in the cup holder in the van until I get home). That's it! I despise having superfluous keys.
