My washer beeps when it's finished. It's also my tumble dryer.

It's bloody marvellous.

Default RANDOM THOUGHTS...

Many states are overrun with geese and wild hogs. Opportunities for hunting revenue generation exists; yet bureaucracy keeps donations to food banks and shelters from happening. There are a LOT of homeless, poverty-stricken people and hungry children who could benefit.

If The Vatican sold it's gold, every major corporation took 1% of its yearly advertising budget and everyone employed in America, Europe, Japan and China gave $1; we could medicate and feed every needy person in the world.

Things that cross my mind when I'm away from my Tamas & Zildjians on a Monday.

PEACE,

MT

I just got the news that a bass player I used to work with, he played bass in a band I was in decades ago and we were all good buddies, I just got the news that he died this morning from a heart attack. He was 62 years old. I just don't know what to feel right now.

Goodbye, Pat. We were good, weren't we?

So I am writing this because of my disdain for this current trend of people beginning sentences with the word "so". Ugh. When speaking and writing. I see and hear it everywhere now. Enough already.

So I guess this is the end of my rant.

Sorry to hear of that Jay. Sadness for the friend you lost, plus the inevitable examination of your own mortality, is an uncomfortable place to be. I hope his passing inspires you to make the most of each day. I'm sure Pat would be happy knowing that.

F'n A. 62 isn't enough!

Doc told me I gotta cut down on salt in my food cause I'm "pre-hypertension". And I'm a damn vegetarian who loves 30 mile hikes and sweats buckets from playing drums all night. Not fair!

But apparently, this is the kind of thing we all need to pay more attention to.

First,my condolences to you and your band mates family.As we get older,we sometimes continue to take out bodies for granted,just because we don't exibit any symtoms of heart disease.Sodium and sugar,are silent killers that we ignore.When I was diagnosed with hypertention,I had to start a low sodium diet,and start taking medication.

My heart is in good shape,but not knowing how high my BP was,could have killed me just as fast as a heart attack.Get your heart and BP checked at least every 6 months,and start reading the labels on the food you consume.Pay attention to the sodium levels,and stay away from trans fats and fried food as much as possible.

Again,I'm sorry for your loss.

Sorry to hear about it, Jay.

It seems to me that an awful lot of musos die in their 60s, which I'm guessing often comes down to periods of heavy drinking or whatever at some stage. The bandleader of a friend's group died about a month ago in his 60s too. I lost a non-muso friend just last week. That's the third friend to die in the last five years, not including Dad a couple of years ago. We're around that age where some people's machinery wears out.

"Okay so" sounds like "oh queso". Cheese. Listen to how many people start with this, and try not to think of Cheese. It drives me nuts!!!

I see something familiar in Craigslist ads. They start off with, "What we have today" or "What we have up for bids today", as if they were doing a TV commercial. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

So this is the issue of the day. And I always felt that starting sentences with prepositions was wrong in formal writing. But in informal writing like this no one gives a fuck - except you, Larryz :)

So I draw the line at "alot" - the invented one word used in lieu of the two words "a" and "lot". So it's not as though we're talking about words like infinitesimal or exemplary, where people might have to think a moment. This is "a" and "lot", two of the simplest words in, heck, the universe - and people can't work it out. Feeble!.

My breaking point was always the "lose", "loose" conundrum. You 'lose' your keys and your pants are 'loose', not the other way around! I can't stand it when someone misuses those two words. Pet peeves, you got to love them!

Grammar rants - love em!

I also dislike the myth that you cannot end a sentence with a preposition. It is often bad form to end a sentence with a preposition but it is not always grammatically incorrect.

People who misuse the word "myself" - "Tom, Larry and myself went..." ARGGHHH! I was taught that if I was using the word "myself" I was probably wrong.

Anyone who corrects grammar on a forum also rubs me wrong. It is a forum - many of us don't speak English as a first language. Relax.

"Over qualifying" an adjective with the word really or very - "He is really honest." Anytime my daughter asks me to proof something we look at each other and both say "really?". It is our joke - she knows that I will strike every use of the word very or really.

And don't get me started on dangling participles :-)

Lose vs. loose is bad. So is misspelling "rediculous" (sic). Then there's the sin of mixing up they're/their/there.

I have a lot of grammar-related pet peeves.

Grunt just did one in a different thread. He said right of passage. It's rite of passage.

"Alot", definitely.

Pacific/specific. THEY'RE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT WORDS, FGS!

"Deteriate."

Could of, would of, should of.

As you can see, I've mellowed in my old age. Several decades ago this list would have been somewhat longer.

Alot of the english language deteriate this days, you could of said cakes, but you would of said caeks and I should of said haga!

Love me some grammar, written communication is sometimes redikulus from either side of the Specific ocean, communication is like a loose canon, providing the sentence hits the target, everyone understood was I am saying...

Now, were is my base drum petal?

Madge, you may get a laugh out of this. What we have today is the Alot!

http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.co...verything.html

My browser automatically fixed the spelling mistake there, had to go back and change it.

My grammatical peeve is people who use redundancies. ie: ATM machine, PIN number, VIN number and my father in-law's favorite, hot water heater.

Mary, maybe I lost my pants and the ring that holds my keys has become loose. It has been quite the day.

I have been known to say, or at least think, PIN number. Henceforth, I shall not.

We say "water heater". Call us freethinking liberals, but we don't presume to know the temperature of the water before we heat it!

I would like to officially announce that I hate click & lock laminate flooring! It's taken me days to lay the damn stuff, especially a PITA around opposing door frames & similar. Ended up routing off most of the lock ridges so I can work it like normal T&G. Anyhow, new showroom (building work/renovation) days away from completion. Just the entrance hall, stairs, landing, etc to decorate, then I can start filling it with drums - yay!!!

Oh, don't get me started on flooring.

I nearly divorced Mr Madge on Friday. Luckily for him, I found a carpet that can be cleaned with bleach. Cat turds/puke/wee - no problem!

Why not go for some nice hard flooring?

Anyhow, note that Henri makes an appearance in the photo. He sucks ;)

A little while ago this evening I watched a live performance by Garbage on the Palladium channel, and that's a great band as we all know. Shirley Manson is amazing and the band is tight and strong and inventive and nobody sounds like them. Damn, they're good, I wish you'd seen it. Butch Vig is a great drummer and bandleader, and Shirley Manson is the epitome of cool, and she's worth a million Lady Gaga's and any other of those lounge lizard dancing divas. They're professional as they come, Garbage, and they put on a stunning performance.

Right after Garbage, a show with Pearl Jam comes on. What a lame little combo of weenie bozos. I can't take it.

Wow Jay, they're still kicking around? I remember enjoying covering I Would Die for You in the mid 90s (which just occurred to me as being almost 20 frickin years ago ... I was thinking it's fairly recent *sigh*).

Yeah Madge and Red, let's go hard at "alot"! It's so easy - any 5 year hold knows "a" and "lot" are two words.

I'm so used to "lose" and "loose" that I stopped caring. I see it written and quietly figure that whomever wrote it either had a brain fade or isn't the brightest crayon in the box. I wondered about Eminem's Loose Yourself, which looked like a typo at first glance but after listening I realised the tune is about about cutting loose of the shackles of doubt etc etc ...

Another that I encounter a lot is "ridding" instead of "riding", which is so rediculous that I've embraced it, and frequently say/write that I am going to rid my horse today. In fact (which is also two words, though I think I've seen it unified) I say it automatically now, and only realise when other people who aren't in the know ask "Rid him of what?"
