I need songs to learn on the guitar

I just recently picked up a brand new Ibanez acoustic, and I've been learning a ton of cool songs with it. Anyone have any suggestions on what I could learn next? I've been learning a ton of songs that just involve strumming, but I want to learn more picking/solo-ish songs.

tl;dr, I need songs to play on the guitar.

You know what show is amazing?

Mantracker. I sat down and watched an episode a few weeks ago, and I've been hooked. It so good! I feel like I would want to try it out just to see how far I could go before being surrounded by 2 horses and a scary man :D. But yeah, it's amazing. It's one of the ways my dad and I bond these days. I'll come down every night and we'll watch TV, something on discovery, the science channel, or the food network (Which is always amazing).

I have enough for a Tablet!!!

After spending 2 months earning a ton of money, I finally have enough in my bank account to buy myself a brand new Intuos 4 Drawing Tablet! 430$, I have 625 :D. I had 100 in my bank, and I got 140$ From google Adsense. I then earned 160$ from a Transcending Innovations website (, it really works and they really pay off). I got another 60 for selling an XBox 360 HDD, and another 40 I got from selling sets of lockpicks to my friends. I made 30$ in amazon gift cards from, and I have another 60$ coming from 2 more sites, and


Also, I have a new webcomic up for anyone who wants to see it, it's at The comic page isn't working, but there is a link right below it :D

Friday, Finally...

What is everyone here doing for Halloween? Me, I'm going out to a party with a bunch of friends like I did last year. We all dress up then roam around the neighborhood screwing with people. Last year, we found 2 guys sitting in the park, stoned out of their mind... Their bike was at the bottom of the hill. We took it and moved it across the street under a tree and walked away. We wound up at the local blockbuster, and just as we leave (We went in all dressed as hunters to see if one of us could get a free preorder of L4D2), we ran into the 2 guys, who smelled like pot and were still stoned out of their minds. They struck up a conversation with us... It went along the lines of

Them - "Hey guys, would you like, ya'know, know where my bike is by any chance? ya'know..."
Us - "Uh, no, sorry bro. We haven't seen it..."

They proceeded to stare at us blankly for about 20 seconds before just turning and walking away. We took a back route back to the place we hid the bike and put it in the exact same spot it was. We waited about 10 minutes then hid behind a fence while they came back to the spot. They walked up to the bike and stared blankly for at least 2 minutes... We were nearly cracking up...

Best Halloween Ever :D

Game Review - Starcraft 2

Okay, with all my posts about Starcraft 2, I figured I would post a review of it. I think it's an amazing game, and to be honest, I think it was completely worth the 60$ I paid for it.

Now, onto the review

Gameplay (10/10)

Starcraft 2 brings back the classic gameplay of Starcraft 1. Some nice additions were added though. Units form smart formations, so the medics and long range guys will fall to the back allowing your main forces to stay in front and absorb all the damage. High ground makes a difference by letting you see your enemy first, and if you're on a cliff they’ll have a hard time reaching your tanks with ground troops. Plus, if your units are ranged, you can pound at them for a good amount of time before they reach you. Achievements will drive you on to keep replaying missions until you have completed them all, and after that there are still hundreds more. Everything from the campaign, single-player, co-op, and multiplayer has dozens of achievements for everyone.

The Campaign (8/10)

Now, don't get me wrong, I loved the campaign, but I'm just a bit dissapointed at the fact that it was only Terran. Otherwise, it's fantastic. The story picks up a few years after the events of Brood war. I mentioned above that this game focuses only on the Terran, so it's just one campaign for you to play. Since the campaign is about 25 hours long (If you decide to go for all the missions and achievements), you shouldn’t feel like they skimmed on content only giving you one campaign. I can't really say much without spoiling anything, but your in for one hell of a ride. The story is perfectly paced, and has climatic moments that will make you grab on to the edge of your desk. Oh, and remember Kerrigan? The Queen of Blades? Aw yeah, she's back to finish the job :D

Now for the biggest part...
The Multiplayer (11/10)

The multiplayer is stellar. 110% Awesome. There is a reason why Blizzard is one of the most successful game making companies out there. You start out choosing your race and league. If you're more of a solo player, you tend to do well in 1v1, but others like myself prefer good old fashioned teamwork. Nothing beats rushing into an opponents base with 2x the force of his and destroying him. The online matchmaking is great for any skill level. It starts you off in the practice league, so you can warm up against a ton of opponents before actually going for rankings. After that, you have a few qualifying matches, and you will be moved to a league, ranging from Bronze rank all the way to Diamond. And you will never NOT be challenged. The game will always pair you up with a suitable set of opponents. If it thinks you are ready to advance a league, it will pit you against higher level opponents. If you can beat them, you deserve it.

So close....

I have 300$ now, I'm so close to getting enough to pay for my tablet... Just a little more...

Wait... What?

So, I was studying last night for the chemistry we had today. I sat down at around midnight and opened up my Chem book and started to read the 2 chapters that were going to cover the test. As I read, I got more and more into it.... I was a lot more interested in the book than the teacher when she talks... Wait...

Now, don't get me wrong, I absolutely love chemistry, just being able to know what molecules can combine with others and form the most interesting reactions possible. I hate my chemistry class because the teacher is so damn boring. All she does is walk in, start up a powerpoint, and talk the entire class, showing us tables and pictures.

So, I figure since the book is really interesting to me, I'll just read a few chapters ahead so that when she talks, I can pay only a little bit of attention and still completely understand... Sounds good to me :D
