As I have blogged previously my family decided to keep the large speakers in the unfinished bedroom after I complain to them that are house is becoming loaded and scruffy. As much as I like I wanted minimal designs to our house because our hold house has a lot of intricate displays from walls to display cabinets that is eating all the space in our living room.
So I was relieved that what’s left at the bottom of the stairs is the electronic keyboard my mother had bought a few years ago and have not been used even a year, it only serves as a display and an adornment to our living room. If you will ask me if it is just waste of money, but my mother like to own one so much, that’s why no matter how I try to stop and disappoint her it didn’t work. Probably if she knew about the affordable roland gkc at musicians friend she will buy one to connect a guitar to any of the speakers we had, if we only have a large land we maybe build a big house with music room in it.
