    Wow. I want to live in Iceland! How come I can’t bring drums into my library?

    (Because I’m afraid of boney-fingered, old lady librarians shushing me, that’s why.)

    I know its a drum forum, but since you've brought it up, what's the scoop on the guitar? It certainly looks intriguing.

    We can talk about guitars, brother. There's even a thread for that, no problemo.

    That guitar is the coolest one I have. Check it out!

    In Seattle, there's something called The Alexis Hotel.
    On the bottom floor is a nice little bar/eatery that sometimes features intimate little Jazz gigs.
    It used to be known as The Library Bistro, but now is The Bookstore.
    Nice place. Eaten and drank there a bunch of times.

    IMG_2285.JPG IMG_2281.JPG IMG_2277.jpg Snapped a few after soundcheck yesterday. Small version of this kit, '72 Rogers Powertone 20 + 12 with a 10 x 14 XP8 "ft". Played a 12" Evolution over a K Istanbul 2b. Quick action, cool controllable sound for lighter gig. 16 Evo , 17 Legacy, 20 K Ride, new to me 70's COS Pearl snare that I bought thinking it was COB. Sounded really nice.

    Here we are playing at an event in Lawrence, Kansas a couple of weeks ago, sponsored by Kansas Public Radio and The Retro Cocktail Hour. Very nice event.

    Yesterday on a wobbly stage at the Ocean View 52nd Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade. I brought my Gretsch Renowns (13/16/24) and Sonor Ascent 6.5 snare. Cymbals were Anatolians and A Zildjian hi hats.

    Oh man, you've got the Copper sparkle Cat's. Man, that was one of the nicest finishes that kit has yet to feature.
    Double cudo's for the vintage logo on the front head. -b

    Thanks so much... I picked these up for nothing and have had a great time playing them. All I had to do was cut the edges to my taste, (Remember these are imported and not holy grail materiel), finish the Lauan interiors and toss new heads on and I play them out A LOT! And much the same that a freshly washed car drives better, these sound better because of the great finish! LOL!

    From the UPLAND ROAD booking demo sessions a couple of weeks ago (posted in the video threads)...

    You would probably be amazed at what the larger libraries are doing today. I worked for the San Diego County Library (33 branches) and we had all kinds of stuff besides books. Videos and music were the largest number of checked out items, in 2016 there were over 800 concerts, had a couple thousand movie showings, an active ESL program, programs to prep for citizenship tests, the usual homework help all the time, 23 community fairs, pet days... and a bunch more stuff. They are building a new buiding ever 15 months or so and all of them are configured to be easily changed when the technology or community needs change.

    I had fun there - my official job was coordinating all of the admin support except maintenance but I would often go to one of the large branches and work as a reference librarian. My niche was helping high school and college students that had a paper due on Monday and had not started as of Friday! My MLIS was my 3rd Master's program (the other two were Psychology and and MBA). The "boney-fingered, old lady librarians" left with all the changes in what libraries do!

    That’s awesome, Dan. I appreciate you giving me a refresh on my attitude to libraries, although my wife beat you to it :) When she saw what I’d posted here, she was quick to tell me how cool our own local libraries are these days.

    Sounds like a fantastic program over there in San Diego County. Thanks!
