I hope that you and the guys had a good jam last night!
What happened with the Red Glass thread being closed? Did the political comments get a little out of hand or something? Did they (Pearl's Admins) give you a warning, or at least a date/time that the thread could be reopened?
369 MA members is spectacular!
Fall is on its way, but we've had such a wonderful summer weather-wise that I hate to think that it will be coming to an end. Sunny skies, temps in the mid to upper 70s, hardly any sign of horrible humidity at all. It has been great! My stomach can only tolerate the very mildest of chili, and no peppers of any kind. I'm trying to imagine the smell of the roasting peppers in the air. Is it a sweet smell, or acrid? I guess it would depend on the type of pepper itself.
368 MA members rockin' in a free world! (Well, hopefully.)
Our newest member, William Parodi, just signed up! He has the beautiful new Bronze Glass MCX kit with the BB-3 mount.
Well, the good ole' Cubbies somehow managed to finagle 2 out of 3 from the Dodgers! Can you believe it? It just goes to show you that anything can happen in sports. The NFL Hall Of Fame game between the Bills and the Giants is coming on next on NBC. I might check some of that game out, even if it's just a preseason game.
367 MA members hopefully enjoying their summer (or winter, depending on where they are located on the planet)! LOL!
So far, we're having a very pleasant summer weather-wise up here. I'm glad that our football teams are starting their training camps. It's not quite yet time for football, but I'm hopeful that we'll see some improvements over last season come this fall. A lot of the sports talk here in Chicago right now surrounds the Bulls, and their quest to assemble a team that can have a shot at making the NBA Finals. Now that their road to the Finals has to go through LeBron James and the Cavs in the Eastern Conference. The Cubs beat the dreaded Cards 7-6 yesterday. Hooray!! We play them again later today and tomorrow. It looks like your Dodgers beat up the Giants really good yesterday!
I hope that you have an awesome jam night later tonight Lonny!
365 MA members is outta o' sight!
That's one member playing a sweet Masters drum for everyday of the year! LOL!
I know exactly how you feel about the Cardinals! They have been a "divisional" thorn in the Cubs side for all my life.
I'm doing well, and I'm glad to hear that things are coming together very nicely with your band's lineup.
Like you said, you can then concentrate all your efforts on the music itself.
364 MA members is phenomenal!
We haven't started the actual remodeling itself, but plenty to do before we begin. Glad to read that everyone is doing well. I am too. It's very cool that Skeld (Paul) bought the Sheer Blue MLX kit that he saw at Music Go Round. You're right, he can decide if he feels like playing a birch kit or a maple kit on any given day. Maybe someday down the line I wouldn't mind owning both a birch kit and a mahogany kit to go along with my MRX. Even if I never bought another kit again I know that I'm really set with my MRX, but it would be neat to have all 3 "flavors" to choose from.
362 MA members is downright amazing!
Sounds like you got a fantastic deal on your new 13" AA Sabian Hi Hats Lonny! Sorry to hear that Frieda wasn't to pleased with your recent purchase, but $149 for a pair of hats of that caliber is a great deal. Besides, it's not like you are spending that amount (or more) every month on you drums. At least I know that I'm not. I've been super busy recently working around the house, trying to get it ready for a big remodeling job we are looking to have done either this summer or early next fall. Unfortunately, that hasn't left much time at all for being on the PDF. Definitely gonna watch the drum off later tonight between Will Ferrell and Chad Smith on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon! Should be good for some laughs.
360 MA members is awesome. We've come full circle, if we were measured in "degrees"! LOL!
Always good to see you Lonny!
Man, I've had a busy week. I've been remodeling our bathroom, so I've haven't had any time at all to be on the PDF. I still have some finishing touches to work on, and a second coat of paint to apply to the walls and trim. I'm really trying hard to not make a mess as I go along.
The Cubs are currently loosing their series with the Brewers this weekend. The Cubs organization and the City of Chicago celebrated Wrigley Field's 100th anniversary this week. The Cubs, as a team, didn't start playing there until 1916, so I imagine that they will celebrate the team's actual 100th anniversary in 2016.
Both the Bulls and the Blackhawks are fighting for their lives in their respective playoff series. All of the sports talk in the city is focused on those two teams, because both of the city's baseball teams are in the process of rebuilding, and are a mess.
359 MA members glad that KISS' R'N'R HOF induction ceremony tonight went so peacefully! LOL!
We've finally got two consecutive days of 60°+ weather here in Chi-Town. Hooray!
I saw a story tonight on one of the national network evening newscasts about the ABQ Police Department being reprimanded by the Dept. of Justice. The story was discussing how the A.P.D. had the highest rate in the country of its officers using deadly force in apprehending suspects. They showed clips from a press conference with the D.O.J and the new Chief of Police, and some clips of protesters marching downtown. Yikes! Don't these officers have tasers?
If the A.P.D. ever show up at one of your jam nights again, whatever you do, don't anger them! LOL!
Are you going to start a new "Red Glass" thread in the Masters Section now that Aces has been banned?
358 MA members is downright incredible!
I'm doing fine. I hope that everything is well with you.
How's your wrist? I know that you and the guys are jamming tomorrow.
I read on Yahoo Sports that Kershaw has a swollen muscle in his back, and was placed on the 15 day DL for the first time in his career.
The L.A. Angels "of Anaheim" (LOL!) got the best of the Dodgers today 2-6, and the Chicago Cubs "of Wrigleyville" beat Arizona 9-8.
Marv's Gators got into the Final Four! He's got to be thrilled about that. Our neighbors north of the "Cheddar Curtain" (Wisconsin) also made it in.
