Bonzoleum is doing a drum clinic in Lancaster, PA

If you’re a fan of Paiste cymbals and been on youtube, chances are you’ve seen Bonzoleum’s Channel. He’s a John Bonham nut and a charismatic weirdo who I never get tired of watching. I mean that in the nicest possible way too, since in a world this mad, only the weirdos are the good people.

Anyway, if you’re in the Lancaster area, go check him out.  If not, check out his youtube channel, it’s very entertaining.

New Linux Answer to Superior Drummer! AVL Drumkits Plugin!

Check out this great new plugin for linux that is a full virtual drum set that can rival Superior Drummer that’s free and only 40mb!

avldrums.lv2 is a drum sample player plugin dedicated to Glen MacArthur’s AVLdrums. This self-contained plugin provides a convenient way to rapidly sequence and mix midi-drums.

The AVLdrums comes as two separate drumkits: Black Pearl and Red Zeppelin. There are 5 velocity layers for each of the 28 kits pieces or drum-zones for both kits.

This is a very cool plugin and makes programming realistic sounding drums for free a breeze! Get it here http://ift.tt/2fiJRqG

Desktop Google Music Player For Linux!

I have a ton of music in Google’s music service, my own uploads, plus I’m a subscriber. But I always hated having to open a web browser to access my collection, which is not only slow, but eats up tons of CPU on my system.

Thankfully a crafty 20 year old developer from Australia made a sweet desktop player for linux. I’m running the Debian version on my Ubuntu 16.04 system and it’s working great!

Check it out here!

Twin Peaks Unraveled: Dream of Time & Space

This is absolutely excellent. I totally agree PJG’s observations. Much of what he’s talking about was also theorized in a very solid book by John Keel called The 8th Tower, Ultraterestrials and the Superspectrum, which was published in the 1970s.

I keep telling people to read it to have a more solid understanding of TP. A lot of the stuff PJG is saying is right on par with what Keel was saying about entities changing vibrational frequencies to move,or suddenly seem to “appear” in our reality. I really love these concepts. Great vid!

A Very Young Stewart Copeland Talks Drums

I just ran across this vid and thought I’d share. I always love Stewart’s drumming, but also his amazing energy and enthusiasm makes me particularly fond of him. On this vid he talks a bit about his drum kit and some of the cool delays and fx he was using at the time. He’s a true talent and very interesting guy.

DrumFu – A hilariously cheesy but awesome drum solo by Bill Bruford

I just stumbled across this on YouTube and couldn’t stop laughing at how silly this actually was. At the same time, I loved it and really want a vintage Simmons kit now, haha!
