    What is some amazing rock drumming I may not be familiar with? Nothing too proggy plz. More Dave Grohly Nevermindy. Something Keith Moony would also be acceptable. Not Niel Pearty.

    Glimpses do ye seem to see of that mortally intolerable truth; that all deep, earnest thinking is but the intrepid effort of the soul to keep the open independence of her sea; while the wildest winds of heaven and earth conspire to cast her on the treacherous, slavish shore?

    You're looking for generic rock drumming?

    I inexplicably overlooked Nomeansno for a long time. If you enjoy Nevermind, try Wrong (1989) and Small Parts Isolated And Destroyed (1988), might have the sort of drumming you're looking for.

    How do you recover from negative feedback?

    I'm pretty sure I just got a terrible grade on a paper because I forgot to include a thesis statement in it (LOL!). I'm scared to look because I know I'm going to despise myself after seeing the grade and feedback.

    I suspect that this might be a rhetorical question, but answers are welcome too.

    edit: nvm. Revised rhetorical question: how can I stop centering my existence around feedback and buy an internal locus of control.

    Try shifting all the blame onto external factors. Works wonderfully for everyone from McDonald's shift workers to national governments.

    In seriousness though, it can be a bitter pill to swallow, but if there's truth to it and it's something you can actually adjust, it will probably make you self-conscious about that thing in the future. For example, if you're criticized for being careless and sloppy for not including your thesis, it's a blow to your ego. Next time you might try harder just to prove the asshole who called you that wrong. So, as long as you don't just shift the blame, forget about it, and then go back to playing Battle Ponies III or whatever you like to do in your free time, it should take care of itself.

    i just think it's ugly.
