How ya'll doin?

Just got out of jail last night (overnighter). I'm loosing interest in drums, probably quitting the 2 amazing bands I'm in, am loosing the house me and my mom live in, and I can't for the life of me, get a job worth a damn.




Who else has rotten luck?

Also, check out my bands new track up on our myspace.

2 cracked crashes, drumheads that are over a year old, stands and mounting hardware breaking, a job that pays me 90$ a week, food, gas, probation costs, debts owed....etc

It's getting to be to much. I'm dating this amazing chick that teaches classical guitar and I'm starting to pick up a bit of it.

I know I'll never ever part with my drums but to much is getting in the way right now.

Damn bro, sometimes it's darkest before the dawn. The only things I've ever gotten in life were from battles hard fought. Good luck to ya.

Watch this and learn that you're attracting the bad luck: http://www.surfthechannel.com/info/Movi ... ?aid=60708

It's very eye opening. My wife and I just sat down to watch it for the first time the other night.

Good to see you back Howepirate! Yea, sometimes it's good to take a break from drumming. You know? come back to them with a fresh set of ears.

Keep your chin up man. This is life. Sh*t happens. What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger. And about the money thing? I don't think you're the only person who is strugglin' right now. We're all in the trenches day by day, fighting the fight, and getting paid far less than we are all really worth. Just keep at it, don't give up. Things will turn around at some point.

Good to see you back!
