HEY THERE, I SEE YOU'VE FOUND MY BLOG. I'm Cate, and I’m a bluegrass musician and computer science student in Vancouver, BC, with a focus on banjos and algorithms, respectively. Don’t be fooled by occasional bouts of magnanimity and gushy enthusiasm, deep down I conceal a truly catty, bitter soul shriveled by years of judging other people’s opinions, choices, and incorrect otps on the internet. I’m in a committed long distance relationship with my cat, Moz, who I raised this past year from a wary, feral puffball of a foster kitten to a capricious little asshole who loves me more than anyone else in the world. I take my feminism intersectional.

I'm a sporadic blogger with scattered interests and no particular organizational system, but I try to stick some of the more interesting non-reblogged stuff into the my posts tag. LLAP, guys.

This video makes me so happy, man. It’s also got me attempting to listen through the entirety of Sam’s Telluride album at three in the morning, which is either a terrible idea or a GREAT one.

In other news, I got here from poking around these really awesome early-lineup NGR videos (Bush/Cowan/Johnson/Burch) and I’ve gotta say the contrast between John Cowan’s looks in the respective videos has me deeply amused.

New guitar demo test drive whatever!!!

This is my new guitar, and I wanted to show it to the internet and just ended up picking out the melody to Lonesome Moonlight Waltz when I picked it up.

I want to say that the guitar ~*spoke to me~*~~ and I ~*~felt the song would go with its voice~*~~~ but in reality I was loudly singing this the other night when I was alone at my parents’ because I watched a slightly creepy TV show and was trying to ward off ghosts as I did the dishes (doooo doot doouuuuoooo doooo doot dooooo dooooOOOOoo DO DO DO do DOOO) and that is probably why it was in my head.

USUAL DISCLAIMER I’VE NEVER PLAYED THIS SONG BEFORE TONIGHT ALSO PLAYING A BASS LINE ON WALTZES MAKES MY FINGERS CONFUSED. Also please ignore the part where I am like idk possessed by Voldemort or something when I lose track of the melody on the F chord and also can’t hold down the low string with my thumb apparently LOOK, IT GETS HARDER THE CLOSER YOU GET TO THE BRIDGE and I am Chief Tinyhands of the Tinyhands Clan.

This guitar deserves so much better than me. Sorry, bro.

Stats for the curious: figured Koa back/sides/rosette/bindings, Englemann top, ONE OF THOSE COMFY BEVEL ARMREST THINGS yeah, that’s right, this is the guitar equivalent of those fancy-ass business class plane seats that turn into beds EXCEPT IT SOUNDS BETTER
