09/11/2002 Entry: "This post was from yesterday..."

I forgot to post this yesterday. Thus, you will find reference to today as tomorrow. Tomorrow is now today. Are we clear on that?

This is a very rare Gretsch snare in Carpathian Elm. Why so rare? For it's 100 anniversary, Gretsch made 100 drum kits with an outer veneer of Carpathian Elm. The snare was only available with the kit. So, this snare has been seperated from its set. (Ironically, Mike Curotto of Curotto Drums just sold a Carpathian Elm set sans snare.) I wonder if they went together at some point.

Another beautiful snare--a Tama quilted maple in purple. Purple is a non-standard color. You can get them in natural, red, and black. It sure is pretty.

You are 40% geek
You are a geek liaison, which means you go both ways. You can hang out with normal people or you can hang out with geeks which means you often have geeks as friends and/or have a job where you have to mediate between geeks and normal people. This is an important role and one of which you should be proud. In fact, you can make a good deal of money as a translator.

Normal: Tell our geek we need him to work this weekend.

You [to Geek]: We need more than that, Scotty. You'll have to stay until you can squeeze more outta them engines!

Geek [to You]: I'm givin' her all she's got, Captain, but we need more dilithium crystals!

You [to Normal]: He wants to know if he gets overtime.

I like what Maria said about September 11th. There's already so much being said. Some of it just doesn't need to be said. I'm not going to say it. It will be business here as usual tomorrow. It's not that I'm not thinking about it. Or don't care. It's just that you're going to be inundated. My wife's addicted to the stuff. Me? I saw enough a year ago. I need not see those images again. So you can just come here and look at drum stuff.

Replies: 2 people have rocked the mic!

I want to clarify something you said--I wouldn't consider myself addicted. I want to preserve the details for the historical benefit. Someday, when it doesn't hurt so much, I think it will be interesting to be able to actually have the footage and articles. Julia doesn't have a clue what happened and having these things will be able to tell her the story when she is old enough.

Quiz results: I am 13% Geek--"OK, so maybe you ain't a geek. You do, at least, show a bit of interest in the world around you. You're probably a pretty nifty, well-rounded person who gets along fine with people and can chat with just about anyone without fear of looking stupid, or foolish or overly concerned with minutiae."
