    I like video games and I like books. But I hate story-driven...

    I remember when Tama introduced that cobra coil, and I thought it was just a new gimmick to sell pedals. Reading this made me realize I never got passed that initial assumption. Guess I should...

    It's a bit of a misconception to think people are just in tears and extremely offended by what you say. I think it's more akin to how smoking is perceived. Years ago it was glamorized. Now times have...

    I hate that fully finished bass drum hoops have become a "premium" only seen on higher-end kits.

    I also hate Mapex's current logo. I'm just a grumpy old man that hates change, I guess. The finish...
