I don't think I've ever been at a location where there has been live music that I have gone "Oh, good, live music."

Unless I paid for said live music, I rarely find said live music to my tastes. I'm not a fan of off cadence jack Johnson tunes or bad ac/dc covers. 

Plus, every amateur band - without exception - plays too loudly for a space twice the size of wherever they happen to be.

 

Not all bands but yeah there are some.

 

It's usually the drummers fault though, the band has to play to the level of the drumset since it doesn't have a volume control. I'm not just being a mean guitar player either lol, most drummers say the same thing. You'd get the guitarist that won't use preamp gain and the bassist who wants to rock the house off it's foundation though too.

A drummer that can control his volume is fantastic, I've played at volumes that  didn't need a PA for vocals and it was an electric rock band.

I'm a big believer of doing practices at multiple different volumes so you always know how it sounds too.

So, we had a discussion at work today. I don't remember what it even started about. But in the end I had and do confess that I had absolutely no idea how often you replace your underwear. Do you replace it regularly, like shoes (I go through shoes roughly every 6 months. More if I buy a bad pair) or is it like shirts that you just wear til they're done? No one ever tells you this E36 M3 when you're am adult. 

 

Turns out it's once a year.

Wrong.  You don't have to replace underwear if you don't wear underwear.

I am, among other things, an audio engineer (AKA sound guy) and this is totally true.  The drums set your minimum volume, you can't get any quieter than they are and a large number of amateur drummers and some pros only have one volume.  Loud.  I found that the drummers with the best control over their volume tend to be the jazz folks.

I have some shirts that are old enough to drive.

The other month I was showing a friend my RXNC 2011 video and he saw me get out of the car (GoPro mounted on B-pillar) and he said "You still wear that shirt."  "How do you know?"  "*points at the shirt I was wearing*"

That reminds me of the other day when my underwear decided that "it's time" while I was at work, in those lovely Cintas uniform pants(*), and discovered the value of good underwear: You don't get rug burn on delicate bits.

* - 100% chance of wearing Cintas pants, because I do not actually own any pants...

My junk must have callus then because I'm free balling 24/7 in Cintas shorts/pants (*).

* - 20 years of Cintas clothing allowance at work means I don't have to wash shorts/pants but like once a month.

I wear boxers.  I go until they get washed a 100+ times then shred while squatting down.  

I used  to enjoy throwing away worn out pants in hotel rooms to travel more efficiently.   I was kind to not toss my Underwear though.

I get involved in an amateur show every second year and we constructed a soundproof box in the orchestra pit to put the drummer (and his kit) inside. Even has a double glazed Perspex window so he can see the conductor smiley

Life is too short to wear cheap underwear. But I was at the end of the laundry cycle yesterday and had to dip into the backup gitch. At work, and in this heat, by noon I was full stampie. 

I always thought it was the solvent Cintas  used to wash their uniforms that was the irritant. I don’t get mine for another week

I don't know why you'd want to.

I'm fine with wearing nothing at all, but if I'm wearing pants, I'm wearing underwear.

Elon's definitely got more taste than Bezos.

Elon Musk says an update for its Starship spacecraft development program is  coming in 3 weeks | TechCrunch

Now, if you really want, you can make a Steely Dan reference, but it's pretty tasteful.

Ah yes, the drummer cage.  A highly effective tool.  Plus, as one of the drummers I worked with claimed, it keeps the drummer from getting hit with the panties all their female fans throw at them.  The drummer who told me that played in a church band.

I'm convinced it was done on purpose every guy I know at some point in life has taken the opportunity to put a dicknballz in am inappropriate spot. I usually like to put them on the back glass of my friends cars so they see them in the rear view, but I take the opportunity as I get it. Jeff bezos has just one upped us all and launched one into space, and the entire world watched. Everyone wants to rag on him and roast him in memes, but he's just one upped every guy that's ever done that.
