i'm also going to be UPSing all my guitars that are still in PA back to myself, which is REALLY fucking exciting because i haven't seen those things in years. i hope they didn't get fucked up from sitting in my parents' attic for the past three years.
i bought another guitar (a gibson blueshawk, which i've wanted since i was 9; and an orange combo (the rocker 15))... both on reverb. and i'm going away for a week, starting the 27th. i really hope this shit gets here before then so it doesn't get stolen from my doorstep.
i haven't really done much musically in the past 4 years. starting up again has been tough, but i think having a space dedicated to music might help.
(before plugging in that 15 pound monster laptop, i tried BOTH of my USB soundcards on arch, the macbook, and windows 7 on an old netbook. nothing.)
just fired up my clunky asus rog laptop for the first time since buying the 13" galago pro, because i couldn't get a usb audio interface to be recognized on either arch or the work macbook. i don't really miss debian, but plugging in a device and having it Just Work™ was pretty cool.

The question "how much did you make at your last job?" actually answers three questions:
* Are you lying about your resume? (If you're a "senior developer" but only made $40k, that raises a red flag.)
* Are you out of our price range? (If you made $140k and they can only pay $120k...)
* Can we con you into taking less than you should? (If you made $80k and the job's worth $120k...)
Refuse to answer. Counter with "forget about that. Make me an offer and I'll consider it."
two different sorts of keyboard showed up on my doorstep today: the reface cp, and the ibm model f. they both sound really nice (in different ways) and i'm not really sure what to do with either of them.
i think i just swallowed a bug
