Today I punched a guy square in the balls for not moving out of my way. He tried to chase me, but he could hardly handle his weelchair.

yours truly,
Mancunian.

a double bass. Or as most people know it... an upright bass.

The luthier is for all maintenance and adjustments.

Watching the photos of our great great summer holidays in Corfu Island/Greece. Returned yesterday. Probably one of my best holidays ever. What a beautiful place.

I hired this guy.

He plays in a lot of local groups and has a blues & bluegrass sound. But he's also quite diverse and can slip into any style. I enjoy watching him perform with my friend Ruben in swampcandy.

I was working on the musical arrangement to a song today with my guitarist, it was sounding great. It's funny our songwriting technique is kind of similar to Jane's a bit in the early days, I bring a melody then hum some guitar ideas to my guitarist.

My wife and I received the wedding pictures from our photographer last night.
Been reliving the day for the last 24 hours.
