idk how this came on my youtube... but holy sh!t.

 

Her best asset is that she can definitely keep time.  Her general technique needs a lot of work (and she looks a little uncomfortable with the way her kit is set up), but there is plenty there to work with…if she puts the time and practice in, she has the potential to become very good…she’s ahead of the game for sure.  As good as she is for her age (and she’s up there), you’d be very surprised how frighteningly excellent some even younger drummers/percussionists are.

Dave and I agree.

Happy Fathers Day to all you dads, new and old. Finished with the festivities over here so now I'm sitting on my porch (alone) with an Arturo Fuente and a glass of Widow Jane.

I got to see my three step kids today, only for an hour or two, but we hung out in the pool and we had some cigars that my youngest brought back from his trip to Jamaica a few weeks ago.  Can't ask for much more than that.  Happy Father's Day to the dads of all forms.

Truly bittersweet Father’s Day.

Had a great day with my daughter, but my wife has breast cancer (found a lump almost three weeks ago) and she will need surgery and chemotherapy.  And even worse, my daughter found out before we planning on telling her (we wanted her to enjoy her 8th grade graduation first).  Life comes at you hard and cruel sometimes.

I’m truly sorry to hear that man. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

Likewise, hope she tolerates the treatments as well as possible. If there is anything a random guy from the internet can do for you, lmk.

I know 4 people who had breast cancer, including my godmother. I know of 4 success stories, and I have no doubt I will know 5. 

the whole forum is here for you if there’s anything faceless strangers can do.

Really sorry to hear that CR. I hope all goes well , thinking of you all. 

My mum just got to 5 years cancer free of breast cancer this year. She kept the whole thing quite for over 9 months before my first son was born so I could not worry and enjoy the moment. Not sure how she did it as she is terrible with secrets. 

Hoping you all get the same outcome and it's something to look back on as a challenge overcome.

Thank you all.  Hearing all the success stories helps a lot.    

The good news (so far) is that we appear to have caught it early...not in her lymph nodes and hasn't spread.  It's the type of cancer that's a little concerning ("triple negative", meaning that it only responds to surgery and chemo), but many women do survive this when it's caught early enough.  Now it's just getting through it all, and doing every last thing possible to make sure that my wife is well-cared for and supported; her treatments are being handled by Sloan Ketterling.  No one else I'd rather be going to for this.

Why are my childhood movies now becoming Broadway shows.... Beetlejuice, this....

Definitely in on that. 

I will base my willingness to go entirely on your review and yours alone. Don't let me down.

All kidding aside, the next Broadway show I will see next winter with the wife is Come From Away

I love New Foundland after my two trips up to St Johns, and Gander I hear is a nice town. I saw a piece on Gander's welcoming-ness during 9/11 during our game against toronto on their broadcast, and I've had many people tell me the play is amazing.

GREAT show. I saw it about three years ago. I think you’ll both enjoy it.

Oh that sucks man, I’m sorry. If you can still manage to see it somehow, it’s worth the price of admission.

If you (or anyone) have other recommendations, I'm all ears. I'm looking art Wicked as the new plan.

Our Christmas trips up there usually include a Devils' game and now I'm gonna start taking her to Broadway more often now that the kids are less strain on my mom

Book of Mormon would be my recommendation. Absolutely hilarious, awesome show.
