Picking up a guitar for the first time in a few days and shredding the crap out of it. Haven't felt much like playing lately, but today I do!

I've started going to the gym properly and, while it's killing me, at the same time it's feeling really good.

The 100th issue of Powerplay (with no less than 11 reviews by yours truly and a pic of my ugly mush in it) arriving this morning was cool too.

The guy is awesome, he plays in Chester busking quite often, he saw my Metallica tattoos, had a chat and he did an amazing electic violin version of 'the unforgiven' for me. legend!

Reviews where the guy blatantly doesn't like the style of music are far funnier. I'll always remember the Terrorizer review of Mudvayne that just went:

"no,no,no,no,no,no,no,no,no,no,no,no,no,no,no,no,no,no,no...come back coal chamber - all is forgiven"
