Speaking of drums, thanks to Flinty for reminding me about this:

Yamataka Eye and Boredoms summon up 77 drummers on 07/07/2007: It started at 7:07pm and lasted for 77 minutes. It's a virtual who's who of alt.drummers. Kinda figured Chippendale would be in there somewhere. But where's Corsano, or Chris Hakius (OM)? That's noooot a criticism, btw. Here's the run-down:
