All of these are about the "D" grade standard i would say. IE not really terrible, but not very good either.
I'm hearing you, Eddie - I've dabbled in lots of things - drumming, keyboards, sequencing/programming music, writing songs, writing prose, digital art (digitally painted/drawn, not auto-generated stuff), cartooning, web design, ethics & philosophy, statistics (yes, I know it's weird), tennis, ping pong. I also play guitar badly.

When I was younger I was keen of lapidary and jewellery making and my standard joke when I started drumming was I went from rocks to rock and stones to ...

Pretty ordinary in all areas, although I have great talent for downing skim milk cappuccinos. I think it doesn't much matter what you do or how good you are at anything, just as long as you're enthusiastic.

Like Larry, I'm a web/news junkie and at the moment and my main fix is Drummerworld.
