Awesome, I've always wanted to learn the violin. Would you say it is far more difficult than the piano and guitar? Out of those two the guitar was much easier for me to learn. But I'm trying to learn to read music while playing piano so that has been most of the struggle.

Yeah, the violin is really hard. Just trying to get the strings to sound decent while playing them open is hard. What is really sucky, I'm left handed and my mom bought me a right handed violin. So I'm learning it upside down. But, I had to do that with the guitar also. I play a mean upside down guitar. hah. I really need to learn how to read music. I keep trying to get my friends to teach me....

yikes

I have the basic DirecTV subscription but the only cable channels I watch consistently are Discovery and Comedy Central; the rest is just local stations. My wife's addicted to HGTV and Discovery Health though. neutral

I like Bright Eyes. I'm Wide Awake and Its Morning is a fantastic album.

I only get one channel, NBC. I find I'm a lot happier without TV.

lol, that's my new favorite verb.

Re: What's your other Obsession?

I've just started to get back into board games after many devoted years to PC gaming!

The other obsession has to be the family, keeping 2 kids (aged 6 & 3) entertained at the weekends demands more hours (and patience+money) than exists - lol
