Afternoon Delight: It's the Office Desk Extended Drum Solo!

by Jerome Weeks 28 Feb 2011 1:00 PM

Ginger Baker, Keith Moon, Gene Krupa, Michael Shrieve — where have they gone, those great drum soloists of yore? OK, right, a couple of them are dead. But follow me on this: If you’re sitting bored in your office cubicle, you can join them — no, no, not the dead part, although you might be feeling like that — no, you can make your own contribution to hitting stuff rhythmically. With ordinary office supplies.


Afternoon Delight is a daily diversion for when you’re just back from lunch, but not quite ready to get back to work. Check back Tuesday at 1 p.m. for another one.

Sittin’ in your cube, bored. Nothin’ to do. But wait, with ordinary office supplies right at hand, you too can lay down a killer rhythm track.

Admit it. You’re probably doing the same thing right now anyway.
