Andy Rane was kind enough to interview me over at his blog today.
It's The Same Six Questions with yours truly.In the interview, I answer questions such as "What was your first lengthy piece of fiction?" and "If you could meet one of your characters in real life, which would it be?" and more. For the interview in its entirety, hop on over to Andy's Blog. I want to thank Andy for the chance to participate in his Same Six Questions interview series. The questions were fun and thought-provoking. *Side note: I missed posting a Guitar of the Week this week, but it's only because I've been doing so much work on Immortals And Melodies. I'll be leaving town in a few days for Spring Break, but I'll try to post while I'm gone. Until then! Photo credit: Immrchris.
That is the question.
Or at least it would be if you owned this guitar.I had to call in my hubby as backup to decide if this guitar is supposed to resemble a specific sword that I should have recognized. His knowledge of cartoon and/or video games is far more extensive than my own. We decided it doesn't bring to mind any specific one sword, but that doesn't put a damper on its awesomeness. That is a word, right? I'm still a little confused about how you would tune this baby, but I'd really love to see someone play it. It seems like soloing in it would be a lot of fun. And the best part? You could totally pack it around on your hip and just whip it out whenever the mood strikes, preferably in a very public place where people will video you on their phones and post to Youtube immediately. If anyone happens to witness such an event, I'll gladly edit this post to include footage.
Guitar of the Week has come around again.
This time in the form of a Colt Pistol.The trigger acts as the volume control. The hammer is the pickup selector switch. Guns have been on my mind all week, mostly because my sisters and the rest of my family are in town, and when we all get together it's not unusual for us to pull our pistols out and talk guns and ammo. Things were no different this week. My sister showed up with her Glock .40, my youngest sister and I had our .380 LCP's out, and my hubby was showing off his new Springfield Armory .40. Guns, guns, guns. Daddy raised us right. In fact, I can't wait to see my dad again so I can show him this guitar. He's an amazing guitarist (wish I had inherited his skills), and he's owns more guns than anyone else I've ever met. Needless to say, I had a lot of reasons for picking this Colt Pistol Guitar this week. Enjoy!
Fascinating, isn't it?
Come on, you know you're singing the old Mario theme song in your head just looking at this guitar.With this baby, you could do one better and actually play it. Not sure any family, room mates, neighbors ect. would thank you for it, but have at it. And here comes the nostalgia. Despite my husband's claims that I had "all the cool toys" growing up, I didn't have the pleasure of owning the NES. I did get a super when it came along though, so no complaints. There's no particular reason I chose this guitar today, other than just being incredibly awesome. How can something be so wrong and be so right all at once? For all of you closet rock stars out there, here's the answer.
If you'd only spent more time practicing your guitar theory, and less time playing any of the following (Super Mario Bros., Metroid, Zelda, Punch Out, Double Dragon, Tetris and so on) you'd probably have hoards of fans. But hey, that's okay. Playing WOW in mom and dad's basement is nothing to be ashamed of.
