$9.00 shy of that. $91. For a 26x14 Ludwig 6 ply bass drum. By the time I put new heads on it, it'll be over $100.

New Macbook! 13", for $1200 bucks. Amazing deal... I bought the older version because based on the reviews for the newer one, the screen apparently sucks, and coupled with the fact that it didnt have any firewire ports... well yea....

Drum heads.

Who would have thought a kick drum reso head would be so expensive?

How long are the lessons? And who are they with? On that line of thought, whereabouts in Oz do you live?

Custom shops that print your designs for the reso charge $80 and up. You can spend a LOT on those.

Groceries tonight.

Drum-related: bought some SKB cases on craigslist for cheap. My collection is growing. I can almost take out a drum kit in all SKB cases now...

I am only joking about the civilised currency, obviously...

Yeah, about 30% of the drivers here and More further North of here still use them. Can only have em on from October 15th to April 1st. But I drive 100+ miles a day and my Honda Accord is a little tank in the snow with those on.

I had a job at a tire store for about a week when I was a kid. We had to pull all the studs out of the old tires before we could scrap them

One of my first part time jobs during college was working at an E.J Korvettes retail store, Target like, in Baltimore, at their Tire center. I was mounting and changing tires, taking off regular tires, putting on snows during the winter, duh, and while there I learned to use a machine to put the studs in the tires. Then they were outlawed in those parts due to the road wear.
