Best way to learn isn't lessons if you're not ready. Best way is to pick some songs that you really like and learn how to play them. It keeps you interested when learning the basics. I wish they had youtube around 20 years ago when I was learning. Would have saved tons of time playing records over and over. Once you learn enough songs that you like, you begin seeing how it's really all the same chord progressions and scales for the most part. Playing with other people is another way to learn really quickly. I learned more in the first year playing in a band than I learned the previous 5 years learning off records and taking lessons here and there.
I've just got my classic collecting under control over the last few years. Probably have well over 1200 games right now. Makes me sad a little bit realizing I have no interest in playing 30-40% of those and just got them when I was obsessed with numbers instead of games that meant something to me nostalgia wise.
As someone who's worked in bars for years, I rarely see anyone who's not either A) A woman or B) someone who doesn't normally drink beer, ever drink them. They kinda have a fruity connotation around here for sure. I'm always suspicious about beers from different countries that locals refuse to drink anyway. ie Fosters.
360 controllers don't last for me for whatever reason. I'm on a 4th controller in 4 years. 1 the d pad doesn't really go left without hammering it. 1 the b button sticks and the x on the other. I'm using a new one right now but usually I'll swap them around depending on what game I'm playing.
Got into a car accident 6 weeks ago and shattered my leg. Spent a few days in the hospital while they rebuilt it with plates, rods and screws. Didn't know it was broken right away and tried to walk it off. That hurt a lot. Hurts less than multiple ligament injuries I"ve had though.
I don't know about "fair is fair" but I'll accept it. I didn't really think it was fair to be invaded 8 times on my first play through between lv 11 and 20 but some jerks with higher levels and way over powered weapons thought it was. I think it kinda sucks to be expected to play offline and not play with friends or summon to avoid chickenhawking. I could hold my own now, but thats pretty frustrating for beginners.
About 75000. Not that it was a huge amount but it sucked just the same. It took me about 2 hours to get by the blue dragon on my first play through. I was ill equipped and under levelled. I finally made it through and had to sit my controller down to recharge the mana with a ring because I had no spice left. While I was getting a drink, some donkey entered my game and killed me.
