I thought it would help to foster an even greater sense of community if we got to know each other a little better! We can use this thread to talk about stuff we like outside of our favorite little MMO. What are you playing, what do you do for a living, what your up to, or just keeping us up to date on your cat that you were worried may have an intestinal blockage but after $1100 dollars worth of tests you find out he's just gassy and constipated.

So what's up? Me, I just got engaged last weekend, so that's exciting. I'm also playing the hell out of Risk of Rain 2 right now, and The Witcher 3. I tried playing Retail last night, but just couldn't make myself care. I saw Endgame as well, so if anyone wants to talk about that I'm game.

I've been thinking about brushing up on my guitar skills too, but part of me wants to by a new guitar first.

How about you people? Anything exciting you want to talk about? Or anyone just want to shoot the shit?

Congrats on the engagement!

I also got the recent urge to pick up the guitar again. Although instead of buying a new guitar, I bought a small amp and some new accessories that didn't quite hit the wallet as hard. That being said, I'm starting to think maybe I'm not going to fall in love with the guitar as much as I once hoped. Maybe I'll try bass instead...I played the stand-up bass for a few years as a kid.

I recently landed an internship at an engineering firm. Unfortunately going to cut into my grinding time but we gotta pay the sub somehow.

Thanks! Is stand up bass fun? We've been going to a few psychobilly shows lately and those guys look like they have a blast playing it.

I don't think I had quite the fun that those guys do, but I did enjoy playing it. I only played in my school orchestra though. Not quite as cool.

There's something to be said about getting into the groove when you're playing the bass though. Those deep notes really resonate with you.

Yep! It's in early access for probably another year, but it's already pretty damn good. It's 3 dimensional this time around too so shit gets really wild.

Great idea. I brought my guitar just in the past Friday. I'm newbie and this is my very first guitar and it's electro. I was wondering should i buy first acoustic or even classic...but no wonders electro is small, very convenient instrument and i believe that a good choice for beginners, you can anytime just plug it in computer and recreate acoustic sound with some software, the only flaw for me is that you can't really get it outside to play some music on bbq or something like that.

I also got engaged last weekend! And I also thinking about dusting off the guitar which stand in the corner. Funny coincidence. Mr. Green

Just came back from a vacation and getting ready to work again. My job is literature translation and I love it through and through.

Not playing much atm maybe just a little bit of dayz and trying (+failing) speedrunning of the first 10 levels. LoL

I sorta basically posted my life's story just an hour ago or so in the age thread, so I will spare you of that..
But suffice to say, I'm having my Japanese wedding party in a month (already got married in Denmark 4 months ago) and good grief preparation is rough! The Japanese really like having big fluffy marshmallow weddings, that's for sure. I'm really looking forward to it but man I'm also really looking forward to it being safely out of the way.. :p
(Especially with Classic and SUMMER HOLIDAYS coming just a little later.. Grin )

But big congratulations to the recently engaged folks here!
Newly married life is sweet as hell I can assure you 😉

I know people say you learn better on acoustic, but in reality it's just practice, practice, practice regardless of what you're playing on. Stick with what feels good to you and when you feel like expanding, do so confidently.

Kchlangendin buy a little Marshall pocket amp for BBQ stuff Another guitar player here. I used to have a few electrics and acoustics but have sold most of them and just have my favourite left which is a Yamaha semi-acoustic steelstring. It’s all I need these days.

Only other hobby I have is barrens chat of course!

Started making sites when I was like 16 - mainly for a very old space game called Escape Velocity Nova which I made mods and phpbb2 forums for. Travelled a bit when I was 18 around south america and got malaria in the amazon jungle (lol). Came back to the UK and took up Latin American Studies at Liverpool Uni because I liked the place so much. That was a four year course in which I spent a year abroad in Chile as well. Got my degree eventually - worked as a freelance web developer/designer in that time as well to fund my studies. Then decided to take up TEFL (teaching english as a foreign language) which I did at a language lab in london for 2 years. The place went bust and lost my job so I decided to rekindle my spirit of adventure and go to sea as a deck officer trainee. I’m now at the end of my training (three years at sea/college) and will hopefully be a professional mariner summer this year. Looking forward to Classic (no shit) and making new friends.
