I tried. I really did. Went from June 26th till today, and did great. But I'm back. Car problems actually lured me back in. My quitting has/had nothing to do with any of the people here. Only to do with me. I'm a member of this forum, and another non music related forum. My plan was to quit both, and a stupid video game I spend too much time with, for the entire summer (I'm off from work) so I'd be more productive musically. I have been actually. Have a song almost completely written and recorded, and got a lot of other stuff done, including finally getting a website for myself up. It's only halfway done and super basic still, but much better than the myspace page that used to be connected to my domain. Yep. Hmm.... OK. Also want to put in a good word regarding all the people here. Yeah, people can get combative at talkbass, there are a handful of trolls (though they're usually more entertaining than harmful), and things can get ugly once in a blue moon... but the overall vibe here is one of love, tolerance, and community. There's a good vibe going on at talkbass, and a rare one. You don't find that at many forums. At least not ones I've been a member of. Although the Ernieball forum is pretty cool too. On the bass side, anyhow. Guess I just wanted to put that out there. Going to lay as low as I can till September rolls around, but dang... Talkbass, I just can't quit you!!!
