I'm an asshole that curses a lot and likes to make music. Aspires to make techno and rock music but usually ends up making classical stuff. Such is the life of a cellist aspiring to be a guitarist. I might eventually upload vocals. Ew.

So while trying to figure out what's been missing with my music, I've been experiementing with new things and looking at stuff to help me further myself in my quest to make decent music for once. While doing such, my old Sennheisers finally choked, and I had to run to Guitar Center to purchase myself a new pair. While wandering through that section, I ended up running into this:
The Numark NS7II. I played around with it a little, and was mersmerized. So much, that I took a picture before I has to leave, so I could think on it a little more. Or, what in reality happened to be a lot more. I went back the next day (today, actually) and ended up playing around with it again, asking some questions, and I finally decided that I was determined to buy this and make it my own. The price, as you can see, is steep, especially for a broke college kid. It's even more expensive adding on the warranty -- an extra $200. A good quality mic is another $200 to that, so all in all, it's gonna cost me around $2,200 (or $2,000 if I can manage getting that 10% discount).
What does this all mean? Well, working on minimum wage with about 15 hours a week gives me a bimonthly check of about $200 when tax has been taken out. Which means it'll take about half a year to be able to afford all of this. No, I'm not going to ask for donations; I don't have any good reason to take other people's money, other than I want a piece of technology to play with. But if it's going to take me half a year to afford this, that means it's going to be about a year until I can actually begin to advance in my music making. Already inactive as is, this'll put a bigger dent into my activity here, so chances are I won't be on too often. I promise to try and stop by whenever possible -- I got a new tablet, so I may start uploading some art here or there on occassion.
Things, I think, are looking up. I'm hoping maybe I'll get more hours and affording this beauty will be closer than thought before. Until then, though, I thank everyone for the support given. Here's to advancement in music and setting goals for the future.
