not a beautiful or unique snowflake

I own an old electronic drum kit, but even hitting the fake pads is kind of too loud in this apartment with really "thin walls", so I've literally never used it in my apartment. I've used it once or twice since I moved to the SF Bay Area by setting it up at a friend's house for a day.

Anyway, I was planning on saying 'forget playing drums, I'll just program them with a nice program I'll write myself', and the program is even partly-written, but playing through Rock Band reminded me of how enjoyable drumming is, and Roland finally (late last year) released a lower-end cheaper kit using their new quieter technology.

So, I now have a drum kit that I feel ok about playing on weekdays without bugging the neighbors too much. I still have work to do to set it up to use MIDI to play better sampled kits on my PC, but for now, here's a stupid warm-up session with one of the default sound sets. Yeah, it's no 24-hour album, but expect more things in the future.
