Now let's go out there and melt some faces!

I believe it was Oscar Wilde who wrote, "There is no sin, other than stupidity."  That would fit.

Maybe this person is campaigning for a "Darwin Award"?

I'm really, REALLY hoping that our young friend here is simply a troll...

That may have been why they were half full

That's what we love about you, Louderdb - you're such an optomist.  ;D

Careful Deliberations????? - have someone take pictures and do a good write up - Then we'd have something to post on the Darwin Awards web site . . .

My thought is this has to be someone who enjoys the attention of an online debate and can't be serious.

I think this kid needs pyrotechnics to overcome his lack of chops.  Why else would you risk jail and loss of life just to show off for a talent show? Just because the school says it's ok doesn't mean the city fire chief can't press charges. In todays schools no tolerance policies that could be interpreted as arson. Hardy worth the cost of legal fees or worst going to jail just to show off for 5 minutes.
Practice an outstanding solo and give it your all and as said before get a few strobe lights and time them differently and that will be a good display. IMHO

Well...if nothing else this has been a terribly entertaining post to follow....and it does demonstrate the mindset of graduates that our great school system is creating.  These are our future leaders after all.

What a comforting thought.

Unfortunately when you go public ... well, you never know what kind of response you are going to get. Basically no one thus far can give you positive feedback, which I assume that you wanted. So the only thing left, because we all seem to feel so strongly about this, is that we need to be real and suggest that you NOT do this. It's out of concern that we say what we do; it's not about "grilling" you or giving you are hard time.

If you are looking for opinions that are based on no experience ... and you want nothing but thumbs up responses ... you are in the wrong forum!  8)

Bottom line:

If you have to ask how to set your drums on fire on a forum, you shouldn't.

No one that I can tell was grilling you. What EVERYONE was trying to do is keep you from "grilling" yourself or some innocent by-stander. I'm with Bart and the rest in that what is apparent is you didn't want to know the truth, you were just looking for what you wanted to hear. Sorry. I posted my thoughts out of concern for your safety, the safety of everyone else in the room you'd try this in and you future as a drummer, not a convict. It may not have been what you wanted to hear, but it's the truth like it or not! I still say the school will NEVER give you permission to do this anywhere near the school. So my only concern now is that you'll be hard headed enough to try off campus and really get hurt. I just don't want to see you burned to death on useless junk dot com bro. Burning to death is probably the most painful death there is. That being worst case scenario, you could just end up burning down a building or at the least, ruin your cymbals. All of which you say you don't want to do! Don't play with fire or you WILL get burned.

(sniff - sniff, hmmmm I hope that's not a burning troll I smell.) Anyways, this thread has provided you with the only facts you need. Your lack of maturity escapes when you interpret everyone as persuading you to not do it. Grow up, son.

i went here looking for answers and i got them but i was mostly looking for people that have done it before and i think one person said they had. i wanted to know what happened mostly and was thinking this through using the forum. i was almost positive the school wouldnt let me so i was mostly looking for answers to my questions.
check this out (thats not me btw)

Notice that this picture is from a site called Kill Rock Stars ... and that the guy's chin is on fire!  

PhotoShop is a wonderful thing.  ;)

Your right Bart and what ever cymbals he WAS using he just melted the protective coating off of them. Not too smart.

Put a strobe light in your kick drum and cut a hole in the resonant head that could be cool.

I think you should mount the whole set on an inverted lawn mower so that if the fire gets out of control you can spin yourself out...ummm that would be cool to.

No seriously STOP DROP and ROLL!  ::)
