WEEK Four: My life is AWESOME
SO no school today Friday October 5, 2012 to give our teachers time to develop new torture plans for us willing victims in the land of higher learning. So INSTEAD, I rushed down with my Dad to Danny Mangold – Guitar God, teacher, friend, mentor’s house for an impromptu guitar lesson. So much better than geometry class…sorry Mr. Mann. So we jammed for a couple of hours and I learned that the origin of The Blues actually came from China, to the USA – WOW. Danny is a plethora of historic information as a serious musicologist and collector of vintage guitars and an awesome guitar player.
Danny is also creating these amazing art pieces from bits of American history including artifacts from the delta blues era in Mississippi and other points in the deep south and the images are really cool and will be offered up as Z!NG Revolution skins starting early next year.
So me and my friends are going as a “Motely” crew to the big football game tonight – our Home Coming Football game Shorecrest v. Shorewood. My crew sort of reminds me of the cast of FRIENDS as we are all a little quirky and really close to each other for sure since we have known each other pretty much through everything in elementary and middle school that has ever happened to any of us in our long complicated lives.
I predict Shorecrest will win again this year and we all go on to a glorious Home coming dance tomorrow night. Thanks to no school today – I am rested and ready for a jam packed weekend starting…….NOW!
Peace and stand by for updates
