    Albeniz: Asturias (Leyenda)

    April 4th, 2010 | Gio | Giovanna | 1 Comment

    Isaac Albeniz originally composed this piece for the piano. The version played on the Spanish guitar is richer and warmer. This is one of my favorite piece of classical music, second to Capricho Arabe. My heart races upon hearing the first chord progessing into what feels like Allegro appassionato. It’s beautiful, fast, melodic and mysterious […]

    My 1st MacBook Pro in 3 Years…

    Heavily DISAPPOINTED me.  It’s the 15 in. unibody, 2.8 ghz, 4gb ram, 500hd, GeForce 9400M + 9600M GT with 512mb, superdrive 8x… AND the damn thing froze and crashed minutes after I registered online. Aside from that encounter, the thing “bleeps” randomly. It drove me mad so I searched online to see if people had […]

    Been playing it for almost 100 hours with the good karma option. Just installed 5 new DLCs that will take an extra 20 hours or so to finish. After beating the game, I’m looking forward to playing it again from the beginning as the bad guy. I’m going to give my character a “witchy” look. […]

    I'm Moving…Downstairs

    Ok so we pay a lot for our 2 bedroom loft with an open 2nd floor office space. I’m thinking of moving my operations to one of the bedrooms (the gameroom) next week. There’s been an addition to my scope of work and the new business model requires time on the phone.

    Got my ass kicked by a sh*tty little 9 year old on Live. I don’t get these new games with fancy 3D graphics and moves. I’ve been playing the Street Fighter series since 1992 and all the sudden this kid born this decade kicks my ass. My screen name on Live is WebYuppie. I’m going […]

    Pink Eye Pirate

    I got lazy and left my daily contacts on for two days. When I finally removed them, the right lens dried out so bad that it ripped off the tear producing membrane of my right eye. Although my eye was pinkish, it really wasn’t pink eye. Maybe I had a lazy eye. Get it? Har […]

    It was the funnest gift ever. Aaron is against the purchase of exotic cars that go up in value but he was nice enough to let me drive one for a day. He originally chose the F430 but I told him that I wasn’t ready for that beast. We ended up with a ’02 395-HP […]

    How I Got Started Playing…and Still Learning

    My parents enrolled me to take private piano lessons when I was 5. It was fun and I learned how to read basic music. But years after that, without practice and application, I forgot everything. I heard the song Bullet the Blue Sky by U2 in 1988 so I got my dad to buy me […]
