A new addition to the family.

A guitar player almost never has only one guitar. I actually have five. Two are full-size steel-string acoustics, one is a 3/4-size steel-string acoustic, one is a Martin Backpacker . . .

. . . and, as of Tuesday, I am the proud owner of a cherry red Epiphone hollow-body electric!

It sounds and plays great, and it looks good, to boot! I've wanted a hollow-body electric for a while now, and when I saw this one on sale at Freedom Guitar, it only took me a few hours to decide that I really wanted it, go back, and buy it.

There's no case for it yet, but that will come. I was able to find a strap I wasn't using, though, so that's taken care of. And I got two sets of spare strings, since I have this tendency to break strings a lot . . .

In other news, I'm having a pretty good day today. I woke up with a headache, but ibuprofen and acetaminophen have knocked it out. I had a nice breakfast of tea and cinnamon bread, sent payment for a birthday present, and just finished wrapping a late Christmas gift for my brother and two New Years gifts for friends. And I have played no Skyrim! As addicting as that game is, I think I need a day off from it. (Though I probably will play Star Wars: The Old Republic at some point later in the day.)

There's still a few hours left for the fundraiser for my friend. I don't know exactly when it ends, but it's some time later this afternoon or early evening. If you haven't chipped in, and can, it would be greatly appreciated.

Anyway, I'm going to go enjoy the rest of my day. I hope yours is enjoyable as well, and I wish everyone a very happy New Year.

It reminds me of the Six String Samurai... (if you haven't seen that film yet, I recommend that you do)

Hmm. I haven't actually seen that. I know I can stream it through Netflix, so I'll do that. Thanks.

Brilliant film. The star, Jeffrey Falcon, has also done stunt fighting for Hong Kong movies. Here's a cool fight sequence, complete with Monkey Style.

Really? Okay, cool. Oddly enough, I thought I remembered you saying that you didn't like it very much, but I obviously have it confused with some other movie.
