What makes it worse is noone believes me when I tell them I received absolutely $0. I don't know how I'm gonna pay for school, my single parent doesn't make nearly enough to send me off to school. If I don't go to school, that means I gotta start working full-time, which means my chance at a career in music plummets.

Do your parents qualify for a pell grant? Have you applied for every scholarship you can find? Have you looked into stafford (subsidized) loans? Have you looked into private (unsubsidized) loans?

There's money out there, some of it's more ideal than the rest but ultimately it's out there.

euh.. she's good for 12 years old I'll grant her that - and she can play the notes - but her rendition just lacks the soul and passion that andy's does - she's not hitting the strings hard enough.. nor is she thumping the body of the guitar hard enough -she's simply playing it, not experiencing it - I hope she overcomes that one day.

I understand that it's humbling to be presented with a musician who's better at twelve than you (or I) will likely ever be. Her strength is her original work, anyway.

I wish I started playing earlier. How many professional musicians don't start playing until 18?

She's great, but how long has she been playing? I hate to be that guy, but age doesn't factor much into how well you play your instrument as much as time spent playing/practicing.

^-- what he said. Andy mckee has actually been playing since he was about that age - I'm mroe interested to see how she develops into the future.

Also I used to play guitar - I quit because I was living at home at the time and my brother worked nights, thus I always had to be quiet. Perhaps one day I'll take it back up - but atm I have too many things I SHOULD be doing - but am not doing.. :P

How dare a preteen girl not have the manual strength of a full grown man.


Sometimes, it would rain men. "Hallelujah!", we would cry. Thousands were killed.

I completely agree with this. Her original stuff is very good though, her singing adds a lot I think.

All I can do is look and admire how she plays. Man, that's like very cool that she is only 12 and she can do stuff like that. Back when I was 12, I was playing games, doing shit, generally being an idiot and etc

Not like I am not one right now

Hunting
So my friends and I went hunting today and we were walking through the woods when I stumbled across this...

I'm pretty sure its the upper part of the jaw of a horse... I found another identical one, which was probably the other side of his upper jaw, but the crazy part was there weren't any other bones around it... Who kills a horse, removes the top of its jaw and takes everything else?

Theres a couple believable scenarios

1 - Someone was trying to make a traditional vibraphone (usually made from a donkey jawbone), but they fucked up, got mad, and threw it away.

2 - Something ate it a long ass time ago

3 - Somebody is trying to fuck with people. I used to do the same thing with fake poop, or real poop

But conversations here never follow a bell curve in which grows to prove a point until it has been established, then calms. Newgrounds follows a tangent graph where it goes on forever, but it has a point where it can't reach, but it will bypass it and just keep going somewhere else.
