Photo Journal: Well it finally came! The custom drum from a little company called Anchor Drums. 14x7 made from Maple with a Zebra wood top layer. Die-cast black metal hardware and a a hickory inlay in the middle. This thing is beautiful and most importantly, it sounds terrific. Warm and full. Just the tone I was looking for. I can’t wait to slap some new heads on here and put it to work… I can’t thank Shawn enough from Anchor Drums.
Basic House by Martin Azua is a temporary house that can be folded up to fit in your pocket. Created from a metalized polyester material, when unfolded it self inflates with body heat or from the heat of the sun to provide an instant shelter. Once inside the shelter, the material reflects your body heat to keep the user warm. If reversed the material will reflect the sun to keep a cool interior.
Is that a house in your pocket?

Track Day: Tomorrow Never Knows - The Beatles. My all time favorite Beatles track:
"Turn off your mind relax and float down stream
It is not dying, it is not dying
Lay down all thoughts, surrender to the void,
It is shining, it is shining.
Yet you may see the meaning of within
It is being, it is being
Love is all and love is everyone
It is knowing, it is knowing
And ignorance and hate mourn the dead
It is believing, it is believing
But listen to the colour of your dreams
It is not leaving, it is not leaving
So play the game “Existence” to the end
Of the beginning, of the beginning”
Hope this makes your day better. Always does the trick for me.
Track Day: Cage the Elephant - Come A Little Closer. A friend showed me CTE’s latest album. I wasn’t too much of a fan before this album but I’m hooked now. Melophobia is terrific. These guys have really found their sound.

Track Day: The Animals - Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood. On repeat. Always.
"When an Elephant dies the other Elephants will Line up and pay their respects by touching or smelling the body or bones and then when they are done the will just walk away. They are the only Animal on the planet who is said to recognize death a pay homage to their dead in such a way." Elephants have more of a soul and understanding of life than any human could possibly understand.
Elephants are seriously the coolest.

"We don’t need clever humans coming in and telling the animals how to do what they know how to do naturally. Giving back habitat and restoring habitat. That would be utopia."
