At the moment I'm kind of depressed.

I'm trying to play the Firth of Fifth piano solo, not the chords, just the notes, and I'm really struggling. I can play the first ten or so notes and then it gets so unfathomably tough that I'm just left guessing at what to do. So, I gave up on it out of annoyance.

This is exactly how I felt when I tried to do the Cinema Show solo last year. I can do the slow part fine, but starting from the complex part where he goes from end of the keyboard to the other, I can't even focus on one note he plays, so I gave up on that too. This is so unfair. I would love to be able to play a solo, but it's almost impossible.

It's just totally killing me with intense sadness that I'm a great keyboardist but I can't play a simple Banks solo. I mean, if he can do it with such ease, why can't I? There are hundreds of YouTubers that can play FOF too and when people ask them how they do it they always say it's simple.

If I can't play at least one Banks solo in full, I'm nothing, I can't call myself a good keyboardist when he has set the bar so high. I'm sick of making my own solos, I've made about twenty solos and they're lame and easy to play, Banks would chuckle if I showed them to him. I don't want to give up the keyboards but knowing that I'm so far below his level is extremely disheartening, I can't even watch him play anymore, it makes me jealous embarassed

Also, it is EXTREMELY hot tonight in Bournemouth, roughly 35 celcius. I'm at the computer in my undies, this is one of the stickiest, most sweltering nights I've ever experienced in England, and I just feel really "under the weather". Perhaps tomorrow it will be nice and mild, then I'll feel more competent.


I am also in Bournemouth. I am slightly concerned that somewhere within 5 miles to the south and east of here is somebody at their PC in their sweaty undies. I know it's not the worst thing going on in town right now but diconcerting nonetheless grin

I suppose it is. But this heat is driving me nuts. I'm going to have another go at Firth of Fifth in the morning because there's no way I'll be able to get it right at the moment. But it really feels disappointing to struggle with it. I need to be more dedicated tongue

Oh yeah, the thread name *feels embarassed*

OK, what put a smile on my face today was knowing that Cars 2 got bad reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. I'm glad it did! I knew it was going to be Pixar's worst film!

I'm not saying I'm happy that they've made their first failure because I am a huge Pixar fan (so is my Dad - his favourite film is Toy Story 2, and mine is The Incredibles), I'm just happy it got bad reviews because the first Cars film was below Pixar standards and I was pretty p**sed when I found out they were making a pointless sequel to it. Knowing that it is as bad as I expected makes me no longer feel concerned for Pixar's future. If it had done well, there would probably be a Cars 3, but poor reviews proves that the Cars franchise doesn't belong in Pixar's history.

What puts a smile on my face today? Yesterday we had a big clearout of old games and books and it's good to know they're going off to charity.

Oh, and another thing: I recently bought three great things from the iTunes store: The Final Frontier by Iron Maiden, said to be their latest masterpiece, the Concert for George Harrison CD by Eric Clapton and the best of Uriah Heep (a band I am just getting into).

I still have about six quid left over in iTunes money too smiley

Saw the Woody Allen 'Midnight in Paris' movie last night, I LOVED it! cool

There were so many parallels to my life in it and it made me feel so much better, and I didn't know anything about the movie when I went, love that.

It is good, isn't it? I was really skeptical going in, but the Woodman proved me wrong.
