Introduce Yourself!

Real Name:

Esteban, a.k.a. Tank, a.k.a. Cinnamon Bunz.

Esteban is fine, however.

Favorite Bands:

Deftones, Dance Gavin Dance and A Day to Remember would have to be my absolute favorites, but there's more I listen to. Right now it's been a bit of Paramore, Deafheaven, Converge, Slipknot, Underoath and Tiny Moving Parts.

Hobbies:

Play guitar, drive at night. I stargaze a lot.

Horrible attempts at drawing.

Gardening is pretty sweet. I don't do much else.

Random Things:

• I have social anxiety.

• I love cats. I adopt them.

• I'll probably be the cat lady in the future because I don't like people.

• I slipped three disks in my lower back from headbanging. I go hard yo

• I like to go to gas stations/stores late at night and just start conversations with someone. It could be about the most random thing with the most random person. It's funny because I don't do well with crowds, but I feel like I can breathe at night and be myself.

Just don't let it be in a room full of people.

I'll freak.

Hiiiiiii

I played drums for about 7 years, but I haven't had a kit since 2009. Never played in any bands.

Random things you want us to know about you: 

I recently moved from South Carolina to Southern California (I grew up in Orange County and left when I joined the Navy in 2006). I drove a large moving truck with one car in tow and my girlfriend drove her car with our two cats in the backseat. My best friend came along to help with the driving (girlfriend is pregnant so she needed lots of breaks) and to just make the trip even better. We took five days to get out here. Currently looking for a job, but loving life back at home. I go to a good amount of shows in LA, OC, and SD and I am planning on going to a few more Dodger games this year along with a Chargers preseason game, several Clippers games, and a few Kings games.

One finger for for each of my 3 favorite bands from adolescence. (Green Day, Fall Out Boy, Panic! At The Disco.)

Hey all,, Rob here

 

Glad to have found this forum.  I just got back into vinyl after a prodigal departure from it for a couple decades.  I own a recording studio and have been fighting the loudness wars as a mastering engineer for too long which actually prompted my desire to return to vinyl over the last year. 

 

I own about 200 LP's, mostly late 60's to late 70's rock.  I have a few old jazz albums too.  I'm not motivated to collect to be able to evenually say that I own thousands of records.  I'm more into owning those records that I will return to again and again to listen to.

 

My gear is simple right now.  Audio Technica turntable > Pioneer Amp > KLH speakers along with also being tapped into my in wall speakers that I use for watching movies and it's awesome to be surrounded by sound.

Look forward to gaining knowledge of best gear to improve my listening experience as well as geting to know other members.

 

I do play in two bands (just studio rats) as well release my own solo stuff.  If you're into the great prog rock bands of the 70's or just great rock guitar based song writing of that era then you will find a lot to dig with my stuff.  You can hear everything I've done to date here > www.trinityrecords.net

 

My favorite bands/artists ever are ; The Beatles, Led Zep, Kings X, Pat Travers, Jeff Beck, The Dregs, Kansas, Rush, Andy Timmons, Porcupine Tree, Jason Falkner

 

 

 

All the best,

Rob
