My Band's Recordings - February 2012

Hi Everyone! I haven't been posting for a while because we've been moving house to a (for us) a new area of the country and busy getting new school stuff and unpacking boxes and more; and more; and MORE!
So here are some recordings I did with my band. The first song we wrote ourselves (it's an instrumental); and then the other three are covers. Back In Black (AC/DC), Sunshine Of Your Love (Cream), and Smells Like Teen Spirit (Nirvana).

And here's the live video of the one that we wrote:

Hope you liked listening to the songs!
Remember to comment (and/or on YouTube too)! Thanks!

Homemade Suffleboard

A few weeks ago, I invented a way of playing shuffleboard at home. It's a pretty simple thing to do. This post is a tutorial showing how to do it yourself.
At first you'll need to find a clear, flat and smooth area of flooring in your home. It could be under a carpet as you will notice that I have used for mine. The best floor to use is smooth, flat wood.

This is a photo of the whole board. The small square piece of tape in the centre of the picture is the line that you have to stay behind in order to shoot the puck.

The next step is finding a suitable puck. I use this empty cardboard ribbon spool.

This is how to hold the puck when shooting it across the ground.

After finding a good puck, you need to mark the board with tape and boxes, (etc) at the end.

As you can see in this photo, you will need three lines of white tape (even better if it isn't to sticky to the floor so when you pull it up it won't rip some of the floor up, but still enough to stay stuck down firmly), the three lines 30cm apart and marking the following:

1st line: 20 points
2nd line: 10 points
3rd line: 30 points

Then you will need another line down the middle, and then at the end place the boxes, about 15cm - 20cm apart from the line mark 30 points. If the puck lands on any of the lines or hits a box it will count as 0 points. On that note, it is better to have empty, hollow boxes so that you can hear the puck hitting them more easily.

Here's a photo of the scoring area and puck.

The first scoring area is past this line for 20 points.

The second scoring area is past this line for 10 points.

The third and final scoring area is between this line and the boxes for 30 points.

The Score Board is the last thing you need to know. Here is a photo of the Score Board before a game; Players at the top, 'Aim Of The Game' at the bottom:

The aim of the game:

To use the score board you just have to get your first score and then keep on adding the score up. For example:
If my first score was 20 and then my second score was 30, I would write down 50.

Here is a score board timeline throughout a game:

If there are three or more players, after the winner has won, the other players will carry on playing until someone comes in second, third, etc.

Here is a video summing up how to play to finnish off with:

I hope you have enjoyed reading the post and looking at the photos and video, I also hope that you will give it a try!

'What Is Your Favourite Song' Poll

I've made a poll of a wide range of rock songs that you can choose from. Please select a song or two, or even 3 of your choice that you like. As I said, there is a wide range of rock songs, so even if you don't like rock that much, you'll still probably find something on there, such as the 'Beatles', a song of theirs is on the list, loads of people like the 'Beatles', even if their not a big fan of rock because are so classic. I like all of the songs myself, I love rock, and I love playing rock songs too! The rock songs on the list have such a wide range that you will see as soft rock as 'Bob Dylan' to as heavy metal as 'Metallica'. So please select 1, 2 or 3 songs from the poll, it is under 'Other Recommended Blogs' on the left side bar. Please leave a comment on this post when you've voted. It closes at midday on Christmas (UK Winter Timezone).



It is the 10th anniversary of 9/11 today. Tones of people died exactly 10 years ago from the planes crashes and from in the buildings that were hit. The are now re-building the twin towers where they were before: Central Manhattan, New York, that's all I really know about the re-build because I saw a TV advert about it. Please feel sorry for the people who died then. They should have a poppy day for this too.
