Mr Midgely himself would have been proud of that idea (his idea to put lead in petrol (gasoline).There is now a strain of Tobacco that can produce Cocaine in it's Leaves.. let that sink in.
Have you ever seen Legends of the Fall? Some people are like Alfred Ludlow who followed all the moral and legal code, and then his brother Tristan who obeyed none of them. Maybe it's genetic??
I'll never forget when I was 17 (1972 and I was driving thirty minutes to school in a nearby town). My parents sent me to a private school to keep me outta trouble. Well one day a younger classman (2 years younger) brought this jar of muddy water to school (carried it around all day). He told his Mom it was a "science experiment" and she helped him boil these mushrooms he had picked. Well anyways after classes over myself an another of my classmates got together with the young fella to discuss this new elixir. We had heard of psychedelic mushrooms but had no idea they grew locally. We wondered if poison mushrooms in mix?? None of us were sure about it but it didn't stop of us from trying it LOL-we mixed it with grape juice. And then the adventure began=I could tell parts I remember but it doesn't even sound believable to me. Turns out farmers were raising a breed of black cows from South America and they carried the shroom spores in their GI tract.-so popping up in cow patties everywhere black cows. It got to be a real problem for farmers with the ensuing craze-with all the nuisance trespassers they/correction we broke a lot of fences.
Detuned or heavily muffled drums. There, I said it.
Sorry, I love the sound of open drums.
The whole slapping a pillow sound defeats the purpose of using a drum. Might as well use a couch cushion or the seat of a bar stool.
Old man yells at muffled drum clouds! 😁🥁
That's a nice looking collection there!I have tried and tried but just don’t care for the Ludwig Supraphonic 400; At least not under my sticks. Similarly, don’t care for brass free-floating snares or brass piccolo’s. Bought them and sold them on. My preferences mean I just always seek out similar drums with only minor variations in the complexity of tone skipping brass snares but holding on bronze.View attachment 128507
