=267= Words of Joy: Forged

It was an interesting night! Forged a few friendships here and there. Sometimes I really need to remember that being a fool will not work in making friends all the time. If you are lucky you get people that relates and you get friend. If you are not, you get people that becomes annoyed at you.

Stop.

I thank God for self control over the issue and managed to end the conversation with a good note! Stop being a fool! I see Jun Yi and how he is able to be funny without being a fool and I realised that, that is maturity. Guess I am still immature! :/

Well, another crazy thing happened today. I prayed over someone today, to protect her, let’s call her Jane. Since I had the experience in retreat, I anticipated an emotion that I can feel. Instead, I was given an image. I saw a small Jane, with her face unhappy. I can’t recall and really pin point the feeling, but the best I can go is like someone going with the motion. Like someone sian but still talking. Then I got a feeling, a strong one, about bad attitude. This surprised me for I never had this kind of things before! However, it was a hard prayer to pray. I mean what kind of idiot prays over someone’s bad attitude? Thank God I knew Jane, it will be so weird if it was someone I didn’t know.

So then I talked to Jane after supper. I struggled with my words to sort of help form a picture. She told me that she was feeling very small at her work place. And that the bad attitude might be at her workplace. She probably really dislikes her work place. When I asked her if there was any good that came out of her job, she answered that being able to win souls at her workplace was the only good. That she has been asking for motivation for her work but she couldn’t get motivated. I have no idea how to help her, I honestly do not have any solution to the problem that she has. It was a strange feeling. Well, we do not know if it was the right interpretation. I hope so. Well, I trust that this was from the Lord? I mean I did not prepare beforehand, I did not make myself want to see an image. It just came. Well, if there was a word that can’t be put into this image I will love to have it! Lord, will you please show me? Give me an interpretation of the image!

Lord, continue to impact my life and show me supernatural things! Thank you Lord!

-Amen-

Well, I think I made quite a good friend in A! To more nights out having supper! 🙂

=266= Gear Talk: Snares I Want

Well, ever since I got introduced to Pantheon and knew all the options that I could get, I have been dreaming up snares that I want. Here is a list of them.

Walnut Stave 14×4.5. With wood hoops, tube lugs, 42 strand snare wires, trick multi step throw off, DW 3 position butt plate, in either brass or chrome depending on which looks better. Aquarian Mordern Vintage II for batter and Evans Hazy Snare Side 300 for Snare side! This is inspired by Stanton Moore’s snare!

Birch One Ply solid shell 13×5.75. With wood hoops, 50% staggered lugs, 6 lugs on each side only, 14 strand snare wires, any throw off will do, DW 3 position butt plate, in either chrome or brass depending on which looks better. Aquarian Modern Vintage II on top and Evans Hazy snare side on the bottom. Inspired by Benny Greb and Akira Jimbo’s snare. 

Aluminium anosidised into Red 13×5.5. With die cast hoops, ego lugs, 14 strand snare wires, any throw off will do, DW 3 position butt plate in black nickel. Tension rods be brass to add a little ‘gold’ into the drum. Dubbed “The Fire cracker!” With ASPR red synthetic leather head on top with Evans Hazy Snare Side 300 on the bottom. Inspired by drums on Pantheon!

Steambent Mahogany 15×8. With wood hoops, any lugs really, any snare wires, DW MAG throw off and butt plate, in brass or chrome! Bearing edge be Baseball bat type! Aquarian Deep Vintage on top and Evans Hazy Snare Side 300 on bottom. Inspired by Pantheon. 

Steambent Maple in either 14×6.5 or 14×7! With die cast hoops or 4.3mm no flange hoops, Slingerland single ended beaver tail lugs, 20 strand Canopus snare wires, DW MAG throw off and butt plate, in either brass or chrome. Probably be Aquarian Modern Vintage II on top and Evans Hazy Snare Side 30o on the bottom. Inspired by the legendary Slingerland Radio King snare that was revered by so many people!

Beaded black nickel brass in either, 14×6.5, 14×8 or 13×6.5. With die cast hoops, Tube lugs, most probably 20 strand, Dunnet throw off and DW 3 position butt plate, in either chrome, black nickel or brass! Evans Hydraulic Black or Aquarian Morden Vintage II on top, Evans Hazy Snare Side 300 on the bottom. Inspired by the legendary Ludwig Black Beauty.

6 ply Vintage Mahogany(mahogany and poplar) 15×12. With either die cast or wood hoops, any lugs will do, DW MAG throw off and butt plate, in whatever colour that looks good. It will be fitted on with floor Tom legs so it doesn’t need a snare stand! Aquarian Deep Vintage  with Evans Hazy snare side 300. Inspired by a video I watched online.

Another idea is like have mismatched lugs 6 lugs on top and 8 lugs below. 

Maybe one day if Swee Lee does bring in Chad Smith’s limited edition snare I would go for it? Both the red one and the free floater looks really good!

Well, I will never get so rich as to buy everything! Haha I don’t even have money to buy one now! So yeah! These are just ideas! One day! 🙂
