    How many “princess and the pea” details on drums people willing to quibble over?

    Unfortunately I tend to be OCD so if not careful I go down crazy rabbit holes for no good reason. I think in the end a lot of it does not matter. It is our perception that is causing all the fuss. Or a fear, or something else. I posted a thread one time about if you care if all your gear matches...

    OT Olivia Newton-John - RIP

    I saw her perform early 70s when she was a country artist. That was at our yearly rodeo at the state capitol. Think I still have some photos from my little Kodak X-15 Instamatic. She was just a tiny dot in the center of the photo but I snapped away from the nose bleed section anyway.

    Not gonna lie, wish I knew how to use a sewing machine. Many times/projects one would have been very handy.

    Grosgrain Ribbon on your Snares. Let's discuss...

    So I have a question, do you cut ribbon to a set length or just pull some off the roll and cut it when you feel like? I'm OCD so there's that issue ... :rolleyes:

    Just sharing because it looks so nice

    It does have a certain appeal. Maybe because I drank so many coca-colas out of the small glass bottles as a kid back in the dark ages.

    Grosgrain Ribbon on your Snares. Let's discuss...

    As I clean up and "refresh" the used snares I have purchased I plan to use grosgrain on all of them.

    Just sharing because it looks so nice

    Is that the "coke bottle glass" or whatever that I have seen mentioned? It is nice (in my opinion)

    Are sales of used just slow or...?

    I detest Facebook so that kills that option for me. I still have an account but fear that if I get even a little bit active they will start bombarding me with stuff. And yes I tried turning off every notification option I could find.

    Are sales of used just slow or...?

    I just listed a SP snare on my local CL for $45. We all know it is not a top line snare, maybe not even a low line snare, but it is in excellent condition and priced at about half of new. Could be a good buy for someone wanting a starter drum for their child or maybe a drummer who wants to try a...

    Question about prominent members selling on DFO

    I think what I used to do when selling on eBay to get an idea of shipping before posting stuff was to measure/weigh and then go to UPS or FedEx web site and see cost for zone furtherest from me to get an idea of maximum shipping cost. As an individual it is just expensive to ship things. That is...

    Englebert Humperdinck needs to be in the RRHOF

    Lisa Welchel (Blaire) was on a season of Survivor years ago. So many people on the show did not know who she was. I was like, "how can you not!" Yes, I used to watch The Facts of Life and also owned an album she released way back when.

    Yamaha hi hat stands

    Appreciate all the input. I know these things can be subjective (feel and preference) so opinions will vary. Sometimes it seems simple things are over engineered. Of course one man's over engineering can be another man's valued adjustment feature. My issue is a nerve thing with my left leg where...
