Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

Just watched it last night and while I thought the acting was excellent I didn't care for the story. As others have mentioned the conflict didn't make sense and was way over the top. On screen...

Re: Over exuberance - a time & a place?

I would also agree, very reserved, even towards the end. Not flashy at all and fit with what was being played. Btw, loved the 6 piece configuration of your Guru set, it is beautiful. How much do...

Re: What's your story about how you started drumming?

Smells have a vivid connection to my memories. When I read this I could literally smell the inside of my first snare drum. It was a 'new', but cheap no name, made in China (or wherever they were...

Re: What's your story about how you started drumming?

6th grade band for me, would have been 11 or 12, 1982 or 83. A close friend started at the same time and was one of the reasons I picked the snare. Stuck with it from then through the end of High...

Re: Ever shown up to play with a new musician and realized it was a bad fit immediately?

About ten years ago a friend invited to jam with some people he knew. Turned out they were wanting to play music that was 'inspirational' as well as having an extreme political slant. I just wanted...

Re: OCD or normal jacking around?

That was always a crutch to cover my self perceived shortcomings as a drummer. Now that I have been playing very regular on stage for almost 3 years I find myself doing it less and less. With me it...

Re: So...where do you keep your spare sticks?

I also have a small stick bag on the side of my floor tom, makes it easy to recover a stick within 1 measure if I drop a stick. It has a small hole in the top, one of the lug screws is threaded...

Re: How many of you are playing for tips?

We once played a "Biker Wedding" reception for tips. We ended up being "background music" for about 90 minutes and only made about $75. Kinda disappointing.

Re: What's your latest purchase?

I've made quite a few drum related purchases in the last year, but to me this is one of the more interesting ones and was a pretty good deal.

Re: Weird Al Show

I'm really hoping they add some shows in Eastern Idaho. So far I've seen Al & company three times, twice in Idaho Falls, including their 1000th show, and once in Lewiston. Would be great to have a...

Re: Pork Pie Hip Pig Eastern Mahogany Snare

I almost got one of these at least 6 times, that's how tempted I was. However I didn't know how much, if any, improvement this would have been over my 13X7 Ddrum Dominion Maple snare.

How is the...

Re: Giving bandmates rides to gigs!

Ask for gas money, especially if it is long distance.

I am the person with the truck & camper shell in our band, so by default we use it to haul ourselves and our equipment. For anything over 50...

Re: Deceptively cool and challenging drum tracks...

Re: screwed up my first gig

It's all about keeping a cool head and having a quick seamless recovery. Dropping sticks? Should be expected, so have a stick bag or holder close. I keep a minimum of two pairs in a stick bag that is...

Re: Band PA ownership options - thoughts, experiences
