The amount of guitar/music instruction available on the web for cheap/free along with software and apps for your desktop/tablet/phone is just crazy.

I feel like someone can go from knowing nothing to be a pretty reasonable guitar player in 6 months.  And really, you can be playing songs in half that time.  The thing slowing you down is just it takes a while to get the coordination; they can't zap you coordination on the web.

I get better at guitar nowadays without even playing guitar.  I never really memorized the fretboard, so I the other day I kust googled something on the web and found a little flash fretboard trainer/game.  I dorked around with that for an hour.  Now I have the fretboard down cold.  It took me an hour to accomplish something I couldn't do in 30 years.

Sounds like something shady, euro. Do you think someone was throwing those games?

Anyone see what happened in that Champions League match last night, Anderlecht-Arsenal?

Anderlecht goes up 1-0 in the 71st minute, then inexplicably misses the 2-0 on an impossible-to-miss shot on open goal in the 80th.

In the 89th Arsenal, in sheer desperation mode by then, somehow manages to equalize, 1-1.

Then, get this, in the 91st minute, an Anderlecht defender clumsily gifts the ball to Arsenal a few yards from the goal. Arsenal says "thanks, mate... cheers" and scores 1-2. Game over.

I'm sorry but there simply is NO EXCUSE, none, for allowing 2 goals in the dying seconds of that match. By the way, the same thing happened when Anderlecht played at Galataseray some weeks ago: up 0-1, and then allowing a goal in the 90th minute. End score 1-1. Anderlecht by all means should have 6 points now, instead of a shameful 1 point.

1. AHS - 01/11/14 - 1.5 hours - orientation sign-in for Saturday classes
2. AHS - 01/18/14 - 3.5 hours
3. AHS - 01/21/14 - 1 hour - Tuesday orientation
4. AHS - 01/25/14 - 3 hours - COLD playtimes and HEEL practice, but all of the dogs were much more well-behaved during class. They did their homework.
5. AHS - 02/01/14 - 3 hours - some great looking HEEL after only one week. Very impressive!
6. AHS - 02/04/14 - 3 hours - the behavior of the dogs in the second class might have been the best EVER for a first week.
7. AHS - 02/08/14 - 3 hours - One dog that seemed to be improving greatly TOTALLY had a bad week. He wouldn't calm down for anything. His owners were SO frustrated.
8. AHS - 02/15/14 - 3 hours - Every dog graduated and we had the best set of dog tricks that we've seen since I've been helping her.
9. AHS - 02/18/14 - 3 hours - lots of cuties to love in these classes.
10. AHS - 03/01/14 - 2.5 hours - helped get people signed in for the new round of orientations and then walked 6 or 7 dogs. My favorite was named HALLOWEEN. Super-connecty (PET ME MORE!), not bad on the leash, and he liked to play with toys.
11. AHS - 03/04/14 - 3 hours - graduation for Tuesday night classes. Only 4 dogs came to the first class but all 11 dogs came to the second class. One dog jumped through a hoop for his trick. It was the most amazing jump I've ever seen. She tucked those back legs up so tight and got some serious air. It was like watching a cartoon circus flea.

20. AHS - 04/05/14 - 4.5 hours - aaaaaaaaaall of the graduations!!!! The Next Step graduation at Ansley Mall was nice thanks to PERFECT weather. Lots of people walking around and observing the dogs.
21. AHS - 04/08/14 - 2 hours - the big German Shephard is SOOOOOOOOOO much better than he was 3 weeks ago. I love when you can tell that owners have bought into the training program.
22. AHS - 04/12/14 - 1 hour - Orientation!
23. AHS - 04/15/14 - 3 hours - pretty lame graduations for both classes. No outstanding tricks. Awful weather.
24. AHS - 04/19/14 - 3 hours - new classes with new doggies!
25. AHS - 04/29/14 - 1 hour - Orientation! It always surprises me how many adults walk around without a form of ID. OH...and there is a dog named Kahleesi LuLu in this class. I can't wait to meet her and see if she looks like the mother of dragons. :) OH. And there was a woman in the class with craziest last name: Dragonduck.
26. AHS - 05/03/14 - 3 hours - lots of improvement since I saw these doggies back on 04/19/2014!
27. AHS - 05/06/14 - 3 hours - yappy little dog in the first class and two huskies who talk to each other in the second class. EEK.

30. AHS - 05/20/14 - 3 hours - one of these classes is just a mixed bag o' weird.
31. AHS - 05/27/14 - 3 hours - Dragonduck's dog was awesdome with "HEEL" tonight. They may have been the only pair to do their homework last week.
32. AHS - 05/31/14 - 1 hour - Orientation!
33. AHS - 06/03/14 - 3 hours - lots of good tricks for graduation!
34. AHS - 06/07/14 - 3 hours - excellent first class and crazy second class

43. AHS - 07/22/14 - 3 hours
44. AHS - 07/29/14 - 3 hours - graduation! Sadie and Mr. Waffles were the big winners! The owners of Padfoot gave us these really cute collar decorations as a "thank you" for helping their dog in class. So sweet.
45. AHS - 08/02/14 - 3 hours - first class with new set of Saturday dogs. 1 poo and 2 pees in class.
46. AHS - 08/09/14 - 3 hours - only one pee this time! The dog that was late last week made it in time to play his heart out. That was much needed.
47. AHS - 08/16/14 - 3 hours
48. AHS - 08/23/14 - 3 hours - UGH. One of the owners was told by her apartment complex that she could no longer keep her dog there. UUUUUUUUUUUUUGH
49. AHS - 08/26/14 - 1 hour - Orientation for new round of Tuesday classes. I noticed after checking everyone in that one of the girls has a "miamioh.edu" email address. I may chat her up next week. Best dog names on the roster were Digby and Etta James. Oh, two dogs from the same household are coming to class together. Their names are Ace and Otis. I think that's a great pair of names.
50. AHS - 09/02/14 - 3.5 hours - 2 new classes - lots of cute dogs and definitely some doggies with some issues
51. AHS - 09/06/14 - 3 hours - 2 classes graduated! No super awesdome tricks this time.
52. AHS - 09/09/14 - 3 hours - You could tell it was a full moon outside. ALL OF THE DOGS WERE CRAZY!!!
53. AHS - 09/16/14 - 2.5 hours - The dogs were less full-moony. No pees. No poos. Good doggies.
54. AHS - 09/23/14 - 3 hours - Otis is a freakin' handful o' crazy.

57. AHS - 10/14/14 - 1 hour - Orientation for two new classes. One dog named TOOTHLESS. 2 dogs named Callie/Cali (last Tuesday's session had a class with one dog named Callie and one PERSON named Callie - that was awkward). We also have another Kona, another Tucker, and another Lily. It's weird to realize all of the name trends since I've been helping with these classes.
58. AHS - 10/18/14 - 3 hours - There is a dog named MESSI in this class. Absolutely love a couple of the pitbulls in this class. They are happy, silly, medicine ball dogs.
59. AHS - 10/21/14 - 3 hours - All new doggies and none of them were just flat out awful. YAY. Best dog name of this bunch is TOOTHLESS. I did have to clean up two poos and 1 pee. This seems to only happen during the first week with the dogs. The instructor hooked me up with some Dunkin Donuts gift cards as a thank you for my efforts. WOOHOO. I love getting paid with coffee.

Total: 162.5 HOURS

Stopped by McDonald's for a large coffee this morning. I normally order it with 2 creams and 2 sugars. (And YES - I checked to make sure that there wasn't a dead rat in the bottom of it). When I rolled up to the speaker, I could still see the order for the car in front of me. They ordered a large coffee with 3 creams and FOURTEEN SUGARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On the nose.

Terminus guy's indignation seems bizarre.  I mean really?  You've been luring hapless strangers to your cannibal camp and eating them (a gym full of candles worth) and you're pissed that somebody kicked your ass?  I mean yeah, they're nuts, but really?  I guess it wouldn't be TV-like for them to say "we had a good run". 

So are the Termin-ites going to go zombie from eating Bob... he got bit, right?   Talk about obvious writing.  I barely knew he was a character and then he's in my face every couple of minutes for an entire episode?  Dude might as well have been wearing a red Star Trek uniform.  Not to mention the fact that, hey, hey there's a new black guy!  That means a black guy's gotta die. You'd think they'd break that trend just so we would stop making fun of it.

She got the bottle rocket from the dude they captured.

I'm not sure she could have punctured that tank from that distance.  If she could, I doubt she would be able to accurately fire a bottle rocket and hit the target.  If she hit the target, I don't think the dying embers of a bottle rocket would be enough to ignite the tank... at EXACTLY the nick of time where everyone before the first main character was about to bite it, but exactly after everyone who was a main character did.
