Stolen Music Gear

SUNDAY NIGHT I came home from church and dragged my amp and guitar into the house.

And I left the car unlocked.

And I'm a big dumb---.

I left my black gear bag in the back seat. Somebody took it in the overnight hours. I guarantee you they went past the car, lifted the latch and found it unlocked, saw the bag and started laughing. They started going through it as soon as they snatched it, because I found a few items down the alley.

The chances of finding it are remote. Most of the stuff was inexpensive and easy to replace - guitar chords, strings, batteries, etc.

But I did lose my nice AGK wireless guitar unit, and two high-end microphones.

The dirtballs who took it have no idea what they grabbed, and couldn't have cared less.

It just pisses me off. There's a sense of violation and despair when you are victimized like this. What did I ever do to those dirtballs? What are they going to do with my stuff? Why don't they care?

The Christian thing to do is to try and understand why people act like they do, and to forgive, etc.

Uh huh. Right. We'll never find the dirtballs, and it's better we don't, because it wouldn't end well for them.

I'm trying to look on the bright side. I've been setting some recording stuff up in the house so I took some items out of the bag, like a direct box, pedal tuner and an expensive vocal mic. Fortunately I didn't have my lyric sheet books in the bag.

And it's not like I don't know where to go to find replacements.
