    Always amazed me how much drums can cost, OK, so a good Gibson/Fender guitar can cost well over 2 grand easy and a good combo unit upwards of 3 grand but adding up all those drum parts just gets nuts, it really puts a hurt of the wallet, but you do get what you pay for in music gear quality.

    Took over 10 years but I FINALLY got a host (I can also TFF as a sub-domain using my bandwith), and a domain name (my name was taken since '96), now all I got to do is work on it. :-B

    So what youre saying is that people are trying to drink more healthy beverages such as Crystal Lite, Water and Iced Teas...thats why the dwindle of soda sales...hmmm, very interresting. Those numbers show Peeepsi is doing far worse than Coke..meaning Coke is far Superior to Crapsi.

    Ad what is up with the eggnog...thats like drinking liquid SNOTT!

    "Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving,
    Revolving at 900 miles an hour.
    It's orbitting at 19 miles a second, so it's reckoned,
    The Sun that is the source of all our power.
    The Sun, and you and me, and all the stars that we can see,
    Are moving at a million miles a day,
    In an outer spiral arm, at 40,000 miles an hour,
    Of the galaxy we call the Milky Way.

    Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars,
    It's a 100,000 light-years side to side.
    It bulges in the middle, 16,000 light-years thick,
    But out by us, it's just 3,000 light-years wide.
    We're 30 thousand light-years from galactic central point,
    We go round every 200 million years.
    And our galaxy is only one of millions and billions
    In this amazing and expanding universe.

    Our universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding
    In all of the directions it can whizz.
    As fast as it can go, the speed of light, you know,
    Twelve million miles a minute and that's the fastest speed there is.
    So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
    How amazingly unlikely is your birth.
    And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
    'Cause I'm afraid that we've been cheated here on Earth."

    Image 1: sketch of Boba using reference photo-not done as I need to figure out what I want to put in the background.

    Image 2: "Rise of the Mandalorians". Prismacolor. I did have to look at photos for Jango and Boba, but neither is exact rendition.

    Yeah, I'm proud of my artwork [face_whistling] ;) ---------the last one is something I did on the comp just playing around with original mythosaur symbol...

    I like the pics you guys have here! Wookie--the poem! I like the perspective and the actual numbers!

    I agree--don't mess with Boga! he heee--I'd post pics of my knives, but they are locked up in the gun cabinet...that looks pretty cool though, Boga...
