The latest addition to my beer glassware collection is a gift from my good friends for my past birthday. Cheers to Lord Tyrion!

Fuzztastic Planet Festival 2014 was one of the best live experiences I had. Fuzzed out music (stoner rock, psychedelic rock) in a forest, with a small lake in its heart. Gathering point for a lot of my friends around Greece, A LOT of beers, and a great opportunity to explore a couple of really nice bands I haven’t listened before. The best weekend of this summer so far.

Bike ride through the summer breeze, in an empty city at 2 a.m. = the perfect mind cleaner.

Tonight I was playing the guitar totally unplugged, and I was goofing around with some riffs and after a while I came with an entire acoustic blues song  with some lyrics too(!) Imagine my surprise because I normally play instrumental stoner/doom stuff. Anyways. These are the lyrics and if everything goes well in the next days, maybe I’ll upload a jam on this idea:

Obsession Blues
Lies & Fire She’s gone a long ago She took the mountain road But here I am still and waiting I know she won’t return, but waiting She’s haunting still my mind  
——
Ice & Mire Obsessed with her I go (in the mire) Expect at least two words (with desire) But there’s a bitter, dark conclusion Im living in my own illusion I know she won’t return
