Default Pollyana

I have been out of the loop for a while - upon returning I thought I would run into Pollyana as she was a pretty active forum member.

I was just wondering if I missed something? I hope all is well!

Pollyanna has emerged from her cocoon in a new form. ;-)

She's still around, and I bet she'll respond here.

Yes, and it seems your last visit here has been a while...
She managed to submit like 2.000 posts by now, haha.
That is, under her _new_ identity - as Polyanna she got damn close to 10.000 but avoided hitting that number, then created her own rebirth on this forum.

So who was Pollyanna?

Who is Pollyanna now?

I've been on this forum for only a little less than a year. DrummerWorld history is confusing.

She went all renegade on us. Turned into a health nut and bought a Guru. You've missed a lot. Her new user ID is using the same letters as in Pollyanna only rearranged. I forget what you call that.

Holy cow! I can't believe how no one told you yet. My apologies that we get a bit insiderish here.

Anon LaPly is the new incarnation of Pollyanna.

Oh gawd, not this again lol. Ok, just to throw the cat amongst the pigeons here's a "oncer" - just respect me in the morning, ok?

At the time Anon La Ply seemed better than Anal Pylon and Annoy Pall. A Nylon Lap doesn't suit a jeans n' t-shirt girl.

Anal Ply - No! expresses a sensible enough sentiment but can be taken as a given and therefore redundant.

To those who have missed me, you need to improve your aim. Maybe try a bigger rock?

Must away, the RSI is nasty. I only went on the PC today because it's been pouring with rain for the last 3 hours and the TV satellite went bung.

Until next time ....

Still pouring outside. I think I saw Noah outside getting ready for another trip. He was trying to take the dog but I said she was desexed and he just ran off shouting "Man, I can never find a bitch when I need one!"

Drummerworld Lexicon:

"To do a Pollyanna" : when a simple drummer is entertaining enough in writing for people to notice when they change their forum moniker.

Sticks comes to mind ...

I make it thread number 5 solely dedicated to a forum member, probably a worthy entry in the Guinness book of records.

Grea, I think the Renegade side of you is cool too. But, anyway...funny thread...

I think Arky nailed it with "Pollyan(n)agram. Sticks wasn't clever enough to do an anagram. I'm really hip to Hyper Denim Zit. That was good.

My first impression of Anon La Ply was, "what? Is this person from Transylvania"? Because it sounds like a vampire's name, but a cockroach is close enough. They like the dark too.

Speaking of cockroaches (not trying to derail the thread). I've seen albino cockroaches recently. At work, we have to pull manhole lids in the street to get an invert elevation in storm drains and sewer holes. Sometimes there's hundred of cockroaches in those holes. These are really old streets of L.A. So when you crack the lid open, the cockroaches scatter. But we've seen a few albinos. I have pictures.

Hyper Denim Zit is good! Henri's username is the best ... millions of possibilities like Mud Smut Aboard and Dour Mamba Stud. Larryace could be Clear Ray, which is a helluva blues name. Andy probably wouldn't want "Eek! Pimpliest!" ... As for Jules, I can see him settling for Potful Ogled Flock. Bob has edgy acronyms - A Dumb Broad, Bad Mud Boar ...

Andy, digging the Guru. Tuning isn't quite there yet (not being my forte) but it's still sounding great. Brought it to practice and the guys loved it. I won't bring it every week because the RT is unbeatable for easy lugging. The guitarist looked sad when I said that :)

Everyone who visits marvels at the drums in the lounge room. I could quit drums tomorrow and I'd keep it as a sculpted work of art.

Great to hear Grea, despite your back yard "puddle" challenge. Tuning will come. If you need suggestions, I'm here.

You have a guitarist who notices drums? Yea God - melt him down & sell his juices for the good of our community :)

@ Mary - yes, you need more letters. I guess you could be Om Ray with an avatar like this



@ Andy - in hindsight I was a bit ambitious and should have gotten some thicker Evans heads to make things easier for myself, given that tuning has always done my head in. I can tune guitars better than I can tune drums. At least when you change the tuning of one string it doesn't change the pitch of the others, unlike each tuning key on a drum.

@ Toolate - good point. Sticks was the champ. Some banned members will make a comeback under another name but Sticks 1) had the most persistence and 2) was the most transparent.

There was another - Tommycanuhearme was one of his names - who was deeply into the civil rights issues around evil things the govt put in milk and the right to hurtle through your windscreen without a seat belt if you so choose.

The music scene without eccentrics would be like a beach without waves.

@ Sopranos - the only tours I go on are local bushwalks. Have you been on tour or just getting a life generally?

Yes, the modern vintage heads are a more sweet spot orientated deal. They bring their own vibe to the party, & that needs to align to the drum's "happy space". G2 over G1 coated is a combination that's great for cutting your tuning teeth. A bit under dynamic as a generic combination (typical recording setup), & with a low - medium tuning focus, but the drums themselves can more than make up for that in higher tunings. Just a thought :)

lol - never thought of that but if you squint, it definitely does. Yep, you're due for new specs :)
