Things you won't trust other people to do/get for you


#1

You know, because of your exacting standards and the fact that they’ll fuck it up. Or whatever.

I just let my housemate pick out and buy a snare drum for me. I straight up don’t give a shit.


#2

that’s insanely brave!

i designed my own snare drum. i only let somebody else build it because i would fuck that bit up.


#3

Hang up the washing on the airers.


#4

But at this point, buy presents for me. STICK TO THE LIST (or preferably don’t get me anything at all, ta).


#6

Clean stuff
Iron stuff
Troll the internet
Contactless card payments

#7

I’m looking to do less and less. Saps could you please pick up my dry cleaning on Thursday?


#8

Pack my shopping at the till.

FUCK OFF GIRL GUIDE COLLECTING FOR THE DISABLED!


#9

Tumble dry my clothes.

I KNOW you’re saying it’ll be fine but i KNOW it won’t be fine. Stop it.


#10

If it’s walkable from my home, then yes. Or a short cycle.

If it involves driving then I can’t help, sorry.


#11

Absolutely everything


#12

I’ve used Timpson in Dereham


#13

I’m happy to let him buy stuff because I currently don’t know my arse from my elbow when it comes to kit.

I’ve only been playing for a couple of months so am far from having a style or a sound, quite happy to be guided at this point.


#14

ah, that’s fair enough, then!

what did he pick for you? :slight_smile:


#15

Dereham’s twenty miles away, so no can do.


#16

Well it’s well over a hundred miles for me. Thanks for nothing.


#17

I’ve been drumming for a few years and I’m boggled that there are different types of snare…

My kinda makes a ‘CRACK’ sort of noise which I usually like to smack on the second and fourth beats of a 4/4 bar, slave to convention that I am.

What are the differences?


#18

You’re taking my lack of interest in gear/kit to a new level. :slight_smile:

I would describe myself as fairly unengaged by equipment. I never cared much about guitar gear so I don’t see myself getting too excited about drum stuff.

But…even I know there’s different snare sizes and types.

I’m now the proudish owner of a Mapex MPX 13x6 Snare Drum in Maple finish.


#19

Ah ok cool will investigate.

I am TERRIBLE at caring about kit.

I bought my electric guitar twenty three years ago when I was 17 and I’ve never changed the strings apart from piecemeal when they break. I couldn’t even tell you what make it is.

Buy records. Buy books. Buy newspapers. Buy chocolate.
