I just got back from Denver, where I decided I’m going to use medical marijuana to treat my PTSD. I’ve experimented since legalization, then quit out of respect for Stevie Nicks. I recognize the difference between using it pharmaceutically, and for no other reason than I can. I don’t believe it’s disrespectful in this way.
I can only utilize it when I visit Colorado or one of the other legal states. It’s illegal in South Dakota, (and the consequences of using here are ridic.) I got a disposable vaporizer as it’s perfect for tourists. One hit is all I need, and it seems to last about two hours. I give whatever I have leftover to my nephew who lives there before I fly home.
We visited Guitar Hero before heading to our lot to plant trees. M. likes him, too. He purchased a Push 2 for Ableton Live 9 and upgraded to the suite tier. He loves it as much as I do and has already written a song. The student has surpassed the teacher. I knew he’d speed by me quickly with his pre-existing knowledge. I played my violin for him (as promised.)
He complimented my playing and suggested I get an electric violin. I told him I’m going to build a midi violin, instead. I want it to be matte black with an RGB LED inlay in a floral pattern on the neck. (That’s as far as I’ve gotten with the design.) Guitar Hero told me M. is a good catch. I’m glad they hit it off. GH told me he bets Stevie Nicks uses weed when writing songs. (I didn’t realize it’s also a creative tool.) Then I asked him what famous musicians he knows, and he rolled his eyes like a fifteen-year-old girl. (He put his whole body into it.)
I think it means he didn’t want to tell me. Later, M. said it was an asshole question, and reminded me how I feel when people ask me if I killed anyone while serving in the Army. Noted. We talked about how things are going with the project. I told him what I’ve been up to, and how I’ve gone back and forth about a name for it. He agrees 4TD is a better option. Then he explained how Stevie Nicks is also a brand, etc.
It led to a lecture about piracy, copyright infringement, and privacy. I started to say I never do, but GH told me he’d seen this website. (That shut me up while I thought back to what I’ve posted so far.) I need to link and acknowledge ownership in every photo, not just the ones I get from the official Stevie Nicks website. Also, I found out I can’t sample an entire song. (Even if it’s just what I remember of it.) I thought it didn’t matter if I wasn’t trying to sell it, but now I understand. I’m off to beat my drums with sticks.
