How to use drum in a sentence?

  1. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    1. A time machine on the shoulders of memories, two advisers: on the right shoulder there is good future, in the left past that is evil, two open rays of time in which consciousness travels. 2. A halo of knowledge within life, this is a recording of a projection, one who feels reality can feel the universe: the past, present and future, and that which is timeless. 3. The laugh of rage Rap beat: Trumpet music ram there beat street rhythm boo boom bang bang there tudum pub bam pa bang boom boom The laughter of rage and the bloody gloom in a smile in consciousness from an evil joke of reality from the fact that you are not worthy to live like everyone else. The ragged strings of the ever-laughing psyche, like the blinking light of madness where there is insight between light and darkness. The interrupted melody of the harmony of the soul. The silence of insight overcomes the mind, the light is visible, leading to a new dimension of thinking, because everything is visible through the transparent eyelids of the vigilance of fear, and only unconsciousness temporarily closes our eyes from fatigue in the realm of the subconscious. 4. Gangsta music: Car sound Wooo ooo woooo oo drum beat drums pap pap pap Laughing grin of smiling reality from the fact that billions of internal realities of people form a single reality of the hidden chaos of egoism. 5. There is nothing cheaper than sins. 7. Patience gives friends. 8. The trumpet sounds a symphony as a drawn out moan of a soul immersed in laughing horrors of reality, an amazing feeling of weightlessness of madness in the soul, a bright expressive pessimistic gloom in her smile in her laughing psyche. The poison of modern philosophy corrodes the psyche to people like acid. All in straitjackets of conservatism are wary of brilliant exotic thinking that is alien to this world created for posterity. 9. The Venereal thoughts of propaganda will decay for a very long time in the genetic thinking of the mentality. 10. The universe is mined by various bombs of philosophies from different eras. To activate them you need to read books, they act as spells from which a new world will be built for new bombs. 11. Instincts are terrible toys of the subconscious, there is a toy world that is developed at the expense of all lived lives, they call to have fun at the expense of oneself. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich

  2. Ed Husic:

    If it drags on, I think the drum beat for that type of action will grow.

  3. Bob Bergen:

    It’s actually the hardest thing, 'That’s all folks' is the most difficult thing I have to say. Because Mel Blanc said it once when he first got the job in the ‘30s. And after a few years, he used the original recording and, before I think the ‘40s, they stopped having Porky come out of the drum and [say the line]. He didn’t do it again until he started doing press in the ‘80s. And his voice had changed. He was older. So, when I say ‘That’s all folks,’ I’ll say… ‘Do you want 1930s Mel Blanc ‘That’s all folks’ or 1980s Mel Blanc ‘That’s all folks?’… It’s different. So I just do whatever I think feels good….

  4. Greg Guma:

    But he can be very aggressive, very strong and he speaks loud and in a rat, tat, tat, tat, drum beat. bernie is modulating his temperament. He is a brusque person who has a tendency to be dismissive, but he is accentuating the winning side of his personality.

  5. Frank Cappola:

    He couldn't fit in the drum, they couldn't fit him in the drum feet first. He couldn't get the legs to bend right, so he had to take him out and put him in head first.
