    [–] He still got the upper hand. astrowalker 3 points ago in Unexpected

    I didn’t expect his leg to fall off at the end of the fight

    [–] Redditors who have had major health issues - what small symptom should you have looked into earlier? astrowalker 2 points ago in AskReddit

    A friend of mine recently had a routine PAP smear only to find out she has cervical cancer. After further investigation it was determined that the cancer had spread to her lungs, lymph nodes, and colon, and it’s stage 4. There’s no stage 5. Just a week or two ago we were all drinking and laughing at an Umphreys McGee show, and now her life is completely different.

    Don’t skip any routine check up.

    OP where you work? Long time machinist, first time salesman... and we sell root rolling tools.

    [–] It had been through a lot. RIP astrowalker 1 points ago in drums

    As far as efficiency, that’s impressive. My sticks look fresh when they break. It’s definitely my fault haha.

    [–] I’ve been diving in to funk drumming. I gotta say this groove feels awesome once you start to get it down. astrowalker 3 points ago in drums

    Tons! I’ve personally learned a lot from the Stanley Randolph videos like this one:

    Also, the book “Advanced Funk Studies.” At first it seemed pretty straightforward and obvious but once I started to play through the grooves I noticed a more comfortable feel and smoother style. It really is a great book.

    I don’t think they are detecting your sarcasm.

    [–] About 7 years ago I quit my band and ended up selling my drums to make rent. Happy to say that I’m back in the game now! astrowalker 1 points ago in drums

    I’ve always been a fan of the g2’s... they sounded awesome on my old gretsch kit. I like a little bit of resonance with a quick downward pitch bend after the initial attack, but not too much.

    It’s not the arm that seems to be the issue it’s the piece that rests behind the lugs. There’s an eighth inch gap between the lug and the rubber grommet on the mount.

    So far so good! The kit itself is beautiful and it sounds pretty good with hardly any adjustment or tinkering. Might opt for coated heads when it’s time.

    One thing I noticed is that the 10” Tom wobbles a lot more than the 12”... did you experience this at all? I’m wondering if my tom mount is bent or something.

    [–] What's the quickest you've "Noped" out of a job? astrowalker 2 points ago in AskReddit

    I was hired as dishwasher for a brand new Mediterranean style restaurant. On opening night, I quickly realized that the equipment they had purchased for washing dishes wasn’t even in the same realm of what they actually needed. The dishes piled up quickly, and trust when I say that the dishwasher (both myself and the machine) was running at 100% efficiency, and after an hour or so there was a seemingly insurmountable pile of dishes. I began to feverishly wash dishes by hand and feed the dishwasher, but there was just no keeping up with the packed out restaurant. When the manager asked me to pick up the pace (seriously I’ve worked on assembly lines in high production settings where I’ve capped thousands of bottles per hour as they flew by... I’m confident there wasn’t a single dishwasher in our urban area that could nor would wash dishes as fast as me...) when he told me to pick up the pace I laughed in his face. I then took off my gloves, calmly set them down and said “ok.” When he walked away, I walked out the back door to have a cigarette and never came back.
