I Like to Play Video Games. Sometimes.

I have a very on-again/off-again love affair with Video Games.

When I was but a wee lad, my father had the Magnavox Odyssey 2. If my brother and I were very good, we had supervised play sessions with that system, playing games like Pickaxe Pete, or Speedway/Spinout/Cryptologic. However, we had more fun playing out doors, or playing with our GI Joe, Star Wars, and/or Transformers toys. Sure, we'd occasionally see an Atari at a friends house, but from what I recall, it never made a lasting impression.

Need More Time

You ever think that you really need some more time?

Let's just discount stuff from work for a second, although I have a LOT on my plate there.

Outside of that, I have blogs. I have this blog, and Geeking in Indiana. I kind of have a need to create content for these blogs, like I'm doing right now. However, while this blog is easy, I essentially find a subject, and I write until I'm done writing, Geeking isn't as easy. It has a focus, and I really don't like to stray from that focus. The problem is, finding the time to get information for those posts, and the money to make it to parts of Indiana so I can gather the content? That's not easy, and it's why that site is in a lull.

Pickin' and a Grinnin'

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the desire to learn something new. In that post, I wrote about my desire to acquire and learn how to play the 5 String Banjo. Well, after a tax refund, and a LONG discussion about it with my wonderful, beautiful, caring, smart, and lovely wife, I traveled to the Guitar Center in Castleton, and I am now the proud owner of a Mitchell MBJ200 5 String Banjo.
