1 Christmas and all that.... on Thu Dec 26, 2013 2:28 am

Realize that most of you are at least 6-8 hours ahead but just thought I say, Merry Christmas to Boomer and all and a very blessed New Year.

Just got home and digesting a week of heavy food consumption  Razz  Tomorrow I'm on my bike, doing at least 20 miles... if I last heheeeee all! Interesting, my first Christmas no gig so time with family was just as awesome!

Pete and family, I'm continuing to pray for your recovery. Merry Christmas and a blessed coming year!

Ah. The food. My wife made lasagna. Plus a cheese cake. Ugh. I couldn't move. Passed up breakfast this morning. Plus I made pizza throughout the week. I'm not even supposed to eat wheat! Everything was so good though.

Now, back to reality.

Great looking kids, btw. Is that your dad with you?

Hi Asaph,

If you're referring to the top-left image of the two guys...well the one on the left is my brother in-law and on his right is one of my brothers. My father along with my mom passed several years ago. But the image on the bottom, person with the white shirt, is me playing with my nephews and their new dinosaur farm kit.

This family are Patriot gangstas..haha!! Very Happy Not so much with me.

Wow pizza sounds like good eating! Nothing like a great pizza for the season. Have a great New Year!

Oh, sorry 'bout that.

You and your brother look a lot alike.

No problem Asaph. It was just a fun evening. My best to you and yours this coming year and God bless!!
I really dig your drum kit as your default picture. You're a true craftsman in designing drums. Did you design and construct those?

Like you, I'm more of a digital graphic designer and hope I can some day design a kit of my own, if I ever find the time. But here is my website that I'm in the process of finishing. Graphic portfolios are more less in a constant state of change as new work is added. I try being diverse as possible in my work. For me, it's art and music as you are a craftsman in designing drums.

To have the complete viewing of my site, I was told by some that you may have to have a free flash update. It's just the header and slide show that may or may not needed it.


Happy and Safe New Year to you and yours!!

Wow, man, are those actual clients and work you have done for them? Tama? The Hebron thing is pretty intense. Not for art, but the whole gig they are.

Dunamis chocolate. Exploding, dynamite chocolate! far out. I'm not a fan of chocolate so I haven't heard of the product.

I love graphic design. There are people doing the whole "anything you can think of" design work for drum wraps.

Yes, the avatar pic is of my current set. I say I make drums, but really, I assemble from market parts - Keller shells, market lugs. The maple hoops were made by Stellar. Not many make their own shells anymore. Ludwig, DW. Not sure of any other American makers. I guess Pearl and Tama make their own. Sonor. I don't know about Premier. I believe they all get their lugs and hardware from Asia now, mostly Taiwan. Some custom makers make their own lugs - brass, wood.

There really is not an American drum maker any more. Not totally.

Nice web site so far, Rac. Looks cool.

Hi Asaph,

My apology for not responding soon enough due to those last minute-end-of-the-year business. As for the Tama web design pages; those were purely for academic assignments and exclusively within jurisdictions. I just completed my digital graphic degree, at the Art Institute, Online Division and these were simply studies in web designing. But some of these are actual.

But thanks for the kind words.

Happy New Year to you and yours!

Thank you Pete for those kind words. What's even more fascinating is your recovery. I thank God for that and your enduring tenacity through it all.

May God continue to strengthen you in body, mind and love for family.
