    NOT OT.....Getting a daily newspaper to read, use to be important to me. I haven't bought a paper now in many many years, SO I DID A THING.

    Exactly the same here. Gannett took control and that was the end of or "local" paper They just sold the building that housed all including printing - truly the end of an era.

    I'm a Drummer Living in a 500-Square-Foot NYC Apartment

    $25K in property tax - that's unreal. Now we don't live in a big house (1,600SF) on a large lot but it is an older classical brick home in the city. Our taxes last year were around $2,350 - I guess I shouldn't complain.

    Way OT - Looking for credit card suggestions

    This is exactly what I have in mind. I have never paid a penny in interest - always pay my bill in full each month. I will look at this closer. Thanks all.

    Way OT - Looking for credit card suggestions

    I realize this is quite a bit off topic and maybe not even allowed here (if so please disregard this post) but. . . . I’m thinking about getting a new “cash back” credit card – my current card does not offer such. I’ve been with my current provider for over 20 years. Other than the cash back...

    I Hate Virgin Bass Drums and the Resulting Need for Stand Mounted Toms

    Not that I'm in the market but can you install an Inde mount for a two-up set (10" & 12" on a 20" BD)? If so does this require two separate systems or can you mount two toms to one system? Just wondering.

    Krupa on Mike Douglas...

    I tell you - that really made me a GK fan. I always thought most positively about Buddy’s drumming (not big on his personality), but this was most intriguing. Gene, I’m in your camp. Thanks RP for posting. . .

    Gretsch USA Custom vs. Ludwig Classic Maple, hmm.

    You guys have me so jealous – I only wish. In a perfect world I’d be the owner of a 5-piece Gretsch USA Custom in satin cherry or walnut (2 up, 1 down). Maybe someday but not holding my breath. Happy drumming all. . .

    I know nothing about this so please bear with me. Couldn't one company's B-Stock be another company's X-Stock? How do you know what's an acceptable "B"? On a side note, I am a fan of refurbished items (particularly electronic), so I am probably a good candidate for such. Just asking. . .

    Studio Build

    I have to agree with ThomasL - if it sounds even half as good as it looks you have an absolute winner. Job well done Sinclair - this is something to be very proud of.

    That reminds me of this - The plumber was asked what he charges. He said, $80/hr., $100/hr if you watch, $120/hr if you help.

    Gorilla snot grip resin ... Holy Jane Goodall it is too darn sticky!!

    So your go-to is still Vic Firth's Stick Wax? I too have the "dry hands" problem. I've tried a few (like Mr. Zog’s Sex Wax) and settled on Zildjian’s stick wax but as you noted, it too bunches up on the stick, so I periodically have to scrape it off. Maybe I should try VF’s – can’t hurt. On a...
