I've finally admitted to myself that a lot of the music I want to play works better on a guitar than a banjo & started learning on an old acoustic.
I've talked myself into getting a decent beginner electric to learn on (easier to play & quieter for practice) but a lot of the models I'm looking at are sold out (likely supply chain issues related to tariffs & quarantine); anyone have good experience on sourcing guitars locally or online?
Noticing that I really don't want to go to sleep but sleep well (with intense dreams) and have hard time waking up. I should probably take time off soon but feels like "wasting" it since I can't travel.
Took a bike ride today to rescue an orphaned Aerogarden to add to my collection and picked up takeout from Knight's Downtown. The burger, even lukewarm and a little soggy, was SO DAMN GOOD. The weather is glorious.

If you're fortunate enough to have regular household help (housecleaner, dog walker, sitter) that you don't need while you are staying home: tell them to stay home and pay them anyway. https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2020-03-15/coronavirus-pandemic-disease-housekeepers-westwood

when our inexperienced designer & founder showed me the design comp I warned them it would be difficult to implement.
the shop we contracted met our fast/cheap goal and it worked! because it relies on multiple 3+ mb images! ugh!
so now I'm redoing the whole thing and this feels like a collassal waste if time. how much will you pay to get your translucent blob the float exactly where you want it between two other translucent layers?
