I met LaTreice V Branson, of all places, though social/dating website. OkCuipid.
She was the only other person besides myself who squeezed a both a drum kit AND a smile into their profile photo so I knew I had to meet this lady.
After hanging out and basement two-kit drumming in the basement, she asked me to jam with her at her photo art gallery.
This was one of the first outings of my assorted vocal-and-rhythm hardware, “The Slab,” which, for this outing, contained:
- TC helicon Voice Synth
- Korg KP2 kaoss pad
- Zoom RT-323 drum machine (used in Groove Play mode to juggle syncopated patterns).
I didn’t manage to catch the address of the gallery, nor any of LaTreices photography (which is powerful stuff), but I did get two photos of us playing together (photos taken by my lady-friend at the time, who I also met through OkCupid.
I’m rather pleased with the results of using social media counter to it’s design. Perhaps I should look for friends on LinkedIn…
