    What guitar strings you using? The case of your amp is unfortunate, but there's cheaper alternatives for guitar strings, some specifically made for beginners ergo they have a significantly lower price point. It seems to me you haven't changed your strings in years, which is already a no-go for most guitarists (ideal is a string change every 2 months or so, and that's being generous). Judging from what you've written, I'm also assuming that you're just starting out, cause as much as I understand being attached to your instrument, being crazy about rusted strings isn't something I've noticed in any guitar player I closely follow. 

    Lastly, if you genuinely can't afford any brand of guitar strings, being able to play electric guitar is the last thing you should be worried about. 

    I've been playing guitar since I was 12 (i'm now 17) but the only reason why I'm so eagerly attached to my instrument, is because this was pricey and I love music. I'm crazy about the strings because i've taken care of my guitar for years now, and doing closer inspection, the strings are badly rusted. 

    Right now I own a Stagg. And usually string changes depends on how often you play...my mother is a guitarist and has taught me things as well. Yes, you should change your strings around the 3 month mark, but it also depends on how much you play. And ever since I got out of my band (which was only just rehearsals) I stopped playing as much, so I never thought about changing my strings often. 

    In the past, It was never a problem. Instruments are not cheap, thus why i'm crazy about any damages to my guitar that was over 900$. 

    I like your argument, but it's valid to take into consideration the person's perspective before just throwing out comments. And assuming that people can't afford things. I am eventually getting new strings for the guitar, thanks to my grandma's boyfriend who's been playing guitar for over 35 years. 

    From your comment, you like to assume a lot. If you want to be helpful and not come off as dickish, perhaps be less assuming. 

    But your comment is appreciated!

    One of the good things about being retired is that the whole year is effectively one long break. 😃

    One of the bad things about being retired is that I no longer have the energy to do all things I'd like to do. ☹️

    sheesh man, well, at least you get to relax after working hard for so many years, you deserve it. i'd probably pick up some hobbies, do what my grandpa does and shoot some hoops at the park, or go on a walk. find some things that you might enjoy,...don't be afraid to spoil yourself either man. goodluck. 🤘

  3. Still writing the review actually! And when you write reviews, it takes some time to see whether your review gets approved or not! 
    It's taking me some time because I've been re-listening to the Metal Album i'm going to review, and i've been writing rough drafts of my review...i'm trying to make this one good -- clearly...hahah 😆

    Also, THOSE ARE LOVELY BANDS!! 
    System of a Down and Korn are GREAT Nu-Metal bands!!

    I keep hearing good things about March Comes in Like a Lion, will have to add it to my PTW list. The Fruits Basket remake (2019 - 2021) hit me in the feelz consistently over it’s run , frequently causing me to tear up or lay awake at night. Funny thing is the original didn’t do a thing for me, barely even remember it. While the difference is probably mainly due to the superior adaption,  there’s also no denying things that have happened in my life in recent years have made me more sensitive to emotional & existential concerns. Of course that’s also why I try to balance out some of the heavier series (Made in Abyss, Attack on Titan, Vinland Saga) with lighter series (Yuru Camp, Welcome to Demon School Iruma-kun) so I don’t get too depressed/brooding)

    I feel that man, honestly. I love Fruits Basket, even the remake. 3gatsu no lion IS a great Anime, I think you would like it. If you are into a light yet heavy setting, the anime would be perfect for you.
