Something's In The Bag

2009-03-25 - 11:36 a.m.

In the Today's Title Dept.:

I've been using a vinyl bag to carry my drum stands. This is a bag that was meant for carrying baseball bats. The anchor points for the strap have torn off completely, and I've been checking the local sporting good stores for a replacement. A good cloth/canvas bat bag runs about $50.

I'm not nearly as much of a comparative shopper as Brin is. I don't compare a bunch of brands - maybe just a couple. I don't check several websites for lowest price...although if it's an item on eBay, I will compare several totals (price + shipping) for the best deal.

So I asked Brin to use her Google Fu to research a new bag for me. Within six hours (five of those spent taking a nap, but I understand that) she found one on eBay that will work very nicely. It's a professional-grade mic stand bag with a padded shoulder strap and a zipper down the length of the bag (the zipper means I can lay things into the bag instead of sliding them in one end - that will keep the stands from getting jammed up when I unpack them).

Total cost to me? About $33 total, including shipping.

Sometimes you just have to ask for the help of an expert. Thanks again, Brin.


Apparently the Chinese government has has blocked YouTube access due to a video of someone being beaten to death by Chinese policemen. The Chinese government claims the video is a fake concocted by the Dalai Lama.

Are you sure it wasn't this NSFW video?


Once again, a show from my childhood comes to DVD. Anyone remember Monster Squad, starring Fred "Gopher" Grandy?

Ark II. Space Academy.

So where the hell is Ellery Queen??


Time to get going.

Be seeing you.

I'm with you. Where's Ellery Queen? (In the meantime, though it's on hiatus, do look for Jim's son Timothy in TNT's series 'Leverage.')
