This post begins a new weekly segment here on Where Pianos Roam. It should mostly happen on Fridays, but may occasionally come out on Saturdays depending on my schedule. Along with "Early On a Sunday Morning" and "The Video of the Week", this marks the third regular instalment that you can expect to find here on WPR. So now, on with the inaugural post of . . .
I spent a day in Huntsville, Alabama earlier this week for a much needed break from Nashville. I brought Oreo and Buttercup along for plenty of "contemplating along the water's edge"-type-of-stuff. Here are some photos . . . Overlooking some Alabama mountains . . . Also this week, I've been hard at work on my website-revamp. I just added the new video page . Here's a screenshot . . . I've also been reading a new book in my rare spare time. It's called "The Thirteenth Tale" by Diane Setterfield, and it's quite good so far. Here's a hazy photo from my screwy little camera . . . I also recently dusted off my Roland JD-800 Synthesizer/keyboard and been playing on it a good bit. It's going to make an appearance in some upcoming shows. Her name is Olive by the way. Finished a new song with her earlier this week as well . . . Well, that's it for now. There'll be more photos next week!!! More, infinitely so, to come . . . -gordo
There are three items I own which I'll always upgrade when a significant upgrade exists: my computer, my camera, and my Kindle. Yesterday I got my new Kindle, the fourth generation one that was just released. Before I talk about this specific Kindle, I want to address some general points about the Kindle.
Some people balk at the $189 price tag of the newest 3G Kindle (which is the only one to buy, by the way). It's expensive, but only if you consider it a drop in replacement for books. I consider it $200 to ensure that I read at least 10X more than I used to.
