Those were the days...

[ #23915 ]

In my former life, long before the days of unix, perl, windows, c#, and all things computer for me, I was a drum corps jock. 5 years of running around the field like you were on crack with a drum strapped to your back.

I've never parachuted out of a plane or anything like that. But there is no other feeling on this Earth like running sideways on your toes, as fast as your feet will carry you in a sraight line of 7-9 people while playing the same riff on the snare in sync with each other. I still get shivers thinking about it.

Those were the days.

The next best feeling; playing a 15 minute long panorama steel drum tune with 20 others where your hands are flying around 55 gallon barrels as fast as you can. Sweet.

Now, back to programming. :-)
