Original lesson: Anvil Style by Gabriel Leopardi
Pretty much first time filming with the DSLR. I'm using a Blackstar ID Core 20, and its mic'ed up with a Zoom H2 thats plugged directly into the camera. Guitar is a Fender Strat with a DiMarzio Chopper in the bridge. The strings are dead... but will be replaced soon. I had a better take earlier, but I had no pants on... don't think you guys want to see Sasquatch rocking out to Anthrax...

...mostly because modern pop gives me diarrhea. I'm not exactly anti-pop - there are definitely some 80's and 90's pop songs that I still rock out to. But I heard this song at the gym and it definitely caught my ear. Something about the intro, the driving beat, the way the vocals are introduced... powerful stuff...
To me, good song writing is good song writing, no matter who wrote it. All that matters is that it makes you feel something, because music is a way to communicate emotions. Language and words come secondary.

... because I need all the help I can get.
But this ain't really about me. It's about an interesting article I just read. A journalist in Kansas City mailed out her picture to 27 different designers around the world and asked them to make her beautiful, according to what is beautiful in their own country. It's really interesting to see the extent some of them modified her picture.
My favorite is her original picture. I really don't think she needs any help at all because she is naturally quite beautiful. But of the ones that were touched, the Italians and the Romanians did the most tasteful work. It seems like they prefer a more natural look.
However, the UK and the US dropped the ball on this one. What the hell is that?! Reminds me of the Korn song "Freak on a Leash". She doesn't even look human. I guess this means we're the most superficial? Of course, it's kind of silly to draw such broad conclusions from a simple social experiment.

Not much to say really....

I don't really listen to Byzantine, but I really like this song. I like how the chords sound in the chorus, because even though it's distorted it still sounds clear and provides an effect I really can't describe.
But I can't figure out the chords
