So, my brother in law actually let me use his sweet keyboard this evening that he previously said I couldn't use (he could have been kidding, it's hard to tell sometimes with him.) I've wanted to have a shitty electro band for a long time now, and now my dreams are becoming a reality! He even has the ability to plug it into a computer and record stuff. Obviously I need to practice a lot because, quite frankly, I have no idea what I'm doing. But it doesn't matter, really, because with all the settings on the keyboard it sounds cool even if I'm just pressing the same 4 keys in some kind of sequence. Besides, I'm punk so it doesn't have to sound good.
Anyway, now I need to get a drum machine, which I can't get yet because no money. The only person I know who has one is my shitheel ex, and there's no way in hell I'm borrowing his. Once I start working again I'm sure I can buy a cheapie used one, so until then I get to jam out in the music room in the basement, sometimes accompanied by my brother in law, who is an excellent drummer.
I know this may seem trivial but it was the highlight of my day. I'm glad I've found something that can break the monotony of netflix and jobsearching. I've been aching to try something new, especially something creative, and I think this is just the ticket.
