    O.T.: PSA, and a serious one

    Just to add, you're doing the right thing, all the best to you and others seeking help. I've had two periods in my life when I went to see a psychologist, both times I felt like I've just leveled up in a video game and my character (me) had all these new skills. Both times I've done it too late...

    Just recently switched from 5a to 7a, I'm a pretty lightweight guy so the difference has made it easier to play. The thinner stick was tricky to get used to but after a couple of hours and some adjustments to my grip it feels just right now.

    OT rant, what's yours?

    Chores, around the house. Specifically laundry. This is THE worst chore ever. It's a multi step nightmare. First you gotta sort the ****ing thing, whites, colours, etc.. then you gotta put it all in the machine, detergent, softener and all that not true. Don't forget the right setting and number of...

    Heel up or flat foot?

    What Year Did you begin drumming?

    Well, I'd like to think it was the early 80s, when I borrowed a toy drum from a friend as a kid, then I had to give it back. In the back of my mind it was always there, the feeling I need more, the feeling of rhythm, but that was beaten out of me by my parents (pun intended). It wasn't until...

    Gig Tomorrow

    Well, I did the gig, the crowd loved it, but then they are friends, family and neighbours, so it's a bit biased I loved every minute of it, made mistakes, dropped a stick on one song and the band sounded rough, exposing our lack of practice. As it was our first gig, that's to be expected. It...
