Hey guys!

I haven't been active in the forums at all compared to my attention-seeking fanboy period 2 years ago when I first joined (Jafomatic will know what I'm talking about). Ironically this post is about attention, so forget about what I said. Ssssh!

I studied engineering for half a year, passed the exams after deciding it wasn't something I wanted to continue doing, and am now studying medicine in Norway's capital, Oslo. I'm only in the first semester, but have already had patient contact (and will have another 10 hours before summer) - gotta love the Norwegian medical education.

I've dialed down my amps, both metaphorically and literally. Whenever I play, I tend not to play with amp, and just focus on the more technical abilities such as AP, sweeping and legato, but also phrasing and vibrato. For some reason I feel more casual when playing unplugged. As I posted before, I now have an Ibanez RG920QMZ (the Premium series in Desert Red), which is the same model as Marco Sfogli uses, and now David Wallimann as well. I highly recommend it, it's playable, good-sounding, good-looking and inexpensive. I also got myself a Line 6 POD HD500 and plan on setting it up once I get the time (or should I say will-power to get my finger out of my derrière).

Anyway, as some of you may know, I have strong opinions on certain topics, and like writing and spreading my ideas to whoever agrees or might be inspired, which is why I've started a blog. That way I can also organise my thought and keep them accessible if my memory were to fail me. The blog is mostly about my trains of thoughts mixed with logic, philosophy, science and at times some stuff inspired by magic, and I recently posted a text about The Art of Memory, for anyone who might be interested in different mnemonic strategies and networks.

For anyone here interested in what I'm writing about, I'll leave a link at the end of this post. It's strictly non-profit, so I hope I don't get flagged and banned for this post...

Alexanderanimus (Exposing my Mind)

For those who know Latin, the name is just a pseudo-Latin construction supposed to mean "Alexander's mind", without going into genitive declension etc. which would be less catchy.

I'll see you guys around, hope you enjoy my blog, and I apologise if this advertisement offends anyone (the moderators in particular).
