         Geez, a drummer who can sing too! I never seen such a thing before, unless maybe you count Ringo.

       

       

      Isn't the drummer from ZZ Top also the lead singer? Maybe I am wrong.

       Hope that is a bit tongue in cheek; if not look up "What I Like About You" by the Romantics for another example.

      Urban myth has it that Phil Collins played every instrument on "In the Air Tonight"; the line "If you told me you were drowning, I would not lend a hand" is directed at his newly ex wife.

      Another myth is that Paul McCartney played drums on at least 4 occasions while the Beatles were recording the "White" album because Ringo took a leave of absence..

    • Maybe if I start cleaning out my shop now, I'll find my bench before the contest.

      The doc gave me an almost all clear!

      Sure would be nice to finish another one.

    • I guess its time to start cleaning the shop and workbench.  Looking forward to the Challenge once again.

    • Dave,

       

      Clan Mueller has already discussed the competition, believe it or not!  I am hoping to convince a few "secessionists" to enter as a separate entity this year, as the girls in particular have show they have unique skills and artistic talents and proclivities.

       

      Thanks for creating and sustaining something that has become a family tradition here on O'ahu!

       

      Aloha,

      Eric

    • Buildings settle and crack.

    • Can you say earthquake on the fold

    • Pete that turned out to be a fine looking structure.  Don't mind the crimp or gouge, they just give the building an aged and used look.  Some folks work really hard to simulate that look and you got it with little effort

    • Update time, I really never got around to finishing the building, but I have been playing with it as time permits,

      This is what was turned in to the Challenge ... and quite shockingly it didn't win a thing, being as plain as day and not what my napkin represented as my project

      and now that I have done way more work. This will be the close to finished product. Going to add a sign M V Sandoval Co. My brother in law has been a help from a day of moving dirt for the base of the RR to getting the crimping tool and for me and other things, so I think he deserves a building. When I was building this I didnt notice the crimp/fold mark on the wall and the gouge either, but its too late now, I guess I will have to come up with a derailment story for it!
