    Combining hobbies

    I got those tom mics off ebay maybe three years ago, but they did not come with clips. I do have clips, and I'm using it on the floor tom. The problem I have using clips on smaller toms is that the weight of the mic deadens the tom somewhat IMHO. So on smaller toms I use a stand. None of it...

    Combining hobbies

    Over the past couple of years I've gotten in to photography and videography. Nothing spectacular, but it keeps me out of the saloons (literally). And since I started a new job last year, I've had to quit gigging almost entirely. So now I'm spending more time in the drum room, and playing...

    Over-rated bands

    My tastes are so sophisticated, my musical appreciation so honed to a razor's edge, I could never like a band that is enjoyed by anyone other than me.

    UPS Out for Delivery

    I worked for UPS for a while, and this is how it works: the last scan that your package receives before delivery is when it arrives by semi at the distribution point. It is then considered "out for delivery." But your package still has to make its way through the facility and loaded into the...

    I can't ever remember the weather being predictable. However, the amount of attention paid to its unpredictability has never been greater.
