we cleaned the country (living) basement.
by we, i mean trevor dave and myself.
trevor says if i help do things like this i'll earn punk rawk street-cred by the time this show is actually over.
(his show being the fierce brosnan one.)
sidenote: i clearly NEED punk rock street cred.
none of these things are why i mentioned cleaning the basement though.
so dave found this bass drum like a year ago and i was staring at the head of it because there are four characters painted on in red.
trevor insists/ed that it says "tony".
(actually i had been postponing writing all this because i wanted to include a picture of it for you but i'll just add it in later on).
back to the staring though...
jessica: i think that's hebrew
daver: you know what! i've often looked at it and thought the same thing.
so i matched up the characters that struck chords in my memory from the bass drum head to the hebrew alphabet (as per the INTERNET) and then translated (as per the same INTERNET) and it turns out that this bass drum head (which is made of goat's skin), has painted on it, in red, (the drum itself is a dirty sea foam green)...
i think it's amazing and perfect.
dave was disappointed that versace apparently means nothing in italian.
trevor just wants to believe tony painted his name across the front of this drum.
the truth of the matter is whoever's drum that was was a versace wearing, goat skin banging sonofabitch!
