    Any DFOers in Painesville, Ohio?

    Nice drums. Have you contacted the seller for an international shipping quote? The text of the listing suggests that shipping is possible, although expensive. Or you may be able to have them forwarded by a member who can arrange shipping to a US address. Talk to the seller!

    21 Years Ago Today, We Lost One Of The Kings

    Has it been so long? My gosh. I keep a picture of Jeff hanging in my music room, where it can inspire me every day! There's still a vaccum perceptible in the music world, Nobody has quite filled it yet.

    Is it just me or...?

    heh he heh kind of a "ticker tape" look. I'm guilty of overusing ("ellipsis") periods myself, so I can't fault the guy. It's meant to "draw the eye" along to the next (independent) statement with a thoughtful pause. Ending a sentence with a string of ellipsis (called aposiopesis) is also a lazy...

    Ability and Limitations ...

    Benny, I wish this post wasn't so cryptic. Can you not explain in a bit more detail the way in which you feel your friend is attempting to overreach his limitations? What are limitations, really?

    First Drum Recordings Using Mackie Blackbird FW Interface

    Yes, good-sounding recording. Are you compressing it any, overall? I find the toms to be maybe a little muddy. Anybody else feel that way?
