So I got my bass (guitar, not fish) and a buddy loaned me his 60watt amp for an extended period of time. I'm a happy boy, but my fingers are tired after a night of practicing permutations. In a few months I'll consider formal lessons, but for now I'm using Bass Guitar for Dummies. It's written by Patrick Pfeifer who happened to train Adam Clayton, so if he's that good...

In other unrelated news... Anybody out there in the www have advice on dreading ones hair? It's something I've been thinking about lately. Awhile back (like 6 years ago), when I had long hair, someone would occasionally say "Hey, I love your dreads... oh wait, they're not dreads...". I had really tight curls then. I am officially bored with my hair now (it's been short for 4 years) and I'm thinking of something new. I have a couple friends I can ask about dreading hair, but the more info/tips/recommendations/anecdotes that I get will be really helpful.

How long is your hair now?

2005-07-20 08:02:19 ET

Not that long. 3 inches scalp to tip, thereabouts. I think the easiest thing to do would be grow it out then dread it. I think.

Probably, yeah. But I'm no expert. I can hardly do my own hair.

Well, in recent developments, Nicole vetoed the dreadlock idea. I'm back to basic boredom with my hair. Blech!

Hehe, I was kind of wondering what the missus would think. ;)

She thought nought to the idea
