    Talk about OMG

    OMG! I am not sure if this has been posted here, but in case it was not and if so, I now post it for those of us who may have missed it.

    I remember watching Jhonny Carson years ago and saw a 3 year showing his golfing skills. Today we know him as Tiger Woods. I predict that in the fullness of time this will be the greatest living violinist of our time. I like many in the audence shed tears with the first one. I truly hope you enjoy this as much as I have.

    God bless all especially Gary and his family.

    Hi Sam. Nice to see you here.
    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

    I did not know one could have a page on YouTube, cool.

    I am around, often looking in but not always posting. I am hoplessly addicted to World of Warcrack. HAHAHA! So I have not been doing much musically. The game seems to keep the boggie man of depression at bay.

    Great performances!!!!

    Thank you, Samantha. I just uploaded those links to my grandson (2 1/2 now). Maybe...... while he was at ours this weekend he played my keyboard with "fuego" on all registers.

    Hey Samantha, it is good to see you hear!
    I have to say I was *very* concerned when I read what you had to say about World of Warcraft. Now I love gaming as much as the next guy. I closed my company down for two days when Everquest came out, bought everyone a copy of the game and for two days we had a blast. However, there are dangers about these kinds of games and I think you are falling into them. WoW is not a way to keep depression at bay. It will only increase your depression because you will continue to not do anything else with your life. (Like music, job, family or whatever else you have in your life.)

    My best friend back in 1998 or so started playing Everquest. He really got into it and next thing you know he is skipping college classes to continue to play. Because of several circumstances he was forced to move to his dad's place in Ohio. He spent the next year doing nothing but playing EQ and sliding into a hole much deeper than he could crawl out of. EQ was a great bandage, but no one and I mean *no one* can fully ignore life outside of EQ. His self esteem in game was high, he had several maxed out characters, but in real life it came to an all time low. I finally hopped on a plane, picked him up and drove him back down to Georgia. We spent the next six months getting him `off' EQ and back into real life. I can tell you it was a real struggle. The end of the story is a happy one. He went back to school and has become an EMT. Things are going well for him.

    I don't know how far down the rabbit hole you are with WoW and I am not judging you in any way shape or form. I'm just concerned given your posts from a few months ago. Don't let WoW consume you. It is a game that can take everything from you and gives nothing in return. (I understand there is the social aspect and that is great. What is better is a social life in the 3d world!)

    Please dont' think I am being condescending or judgmental. I'm not. I just know what can come of these games and I'd hate to see you go down that slippery slope.

    All my best,
    Kevin

    HAHAHAHA! I just turned 60 in December and there is no danger of me skipping school or work, or anything else for that matter. I play the game because I happen to love it. I don't bowl, play cards and spend too much time watching TV. I live in a very small town, not even a movie theather, nor any cultural events to attend. In my youth I did everything I needed to do. Now I am free to do what I want to do. Nothing that requires effort that involves fulfilling the expectations of others. Because of health issues I am unable to work and World of Warcraft is one of the most astonishing creations of my life time and I am thrilled to have lived to see its creation. More importantly to be able to play it. I used the Warcrack reference because I had just had the best laughts of the month watching some YouTubes of other who claim they are addicted. I can assure you there is no need to worry over much about my gaming.

    I will have you know that Samantha keeps EXCELLENT company within the confines of Azeroth (for you non-WoW-heads, that's the place World of Warcraft takes place).



    And as you can see from my posts and projects, musicians appear to be immune from the more nefarious side-effects of WoW.

    Well, back to practicing my piano... three hours of it, then a bit of WoW

    LOL! That seems like the makings of a somewhat rowdy and possibly untoward crowd. Glad to hear all is well in Azeroth and in 3d!

    Isn't it peculiar that I NEVER play computer games? Music notation is thé game for me and the outcome is always uncertain. So for the next level, I just raise the pitch.

    Haha,

    Re: Talk about OMG

    Ive never been in to WoW, but i did love oblivion for a while. So much that I wrote my own soundtrack for it when i got GPO!

    Yep, i played it enough for the official soundtrack got tedious, despite being hours long! Hearing my own soundtrack stopped me being addicted though cos i would hear problems in my music while playing and quit out to make the changes. Several hours later I would realise i was going to be very late for uni the next day!
