All of my DJ gear was stolen. FML

Just came back from San Diego. My car was broken into and my DJ equipment was stolen.

Fuck you, California. Hurry up and sink into the ocean.

FAWK dude...I know how your feeling right about now...But in all seriousness---Why did you leave it in your car unattended & then jump town?

They stole your treasure from your vessel? ARGH pirates!

But seriously your car must suck for them to leave it.

Hope you get it all sorted out (Y)

Having had this happen to me, I know how devastating it is.
But not to blame the victim: I sure hope it wasn't a situation where the car was in a relatively public place with interesting gear easily visible through the windows...
It sounds like the victim was out of town. Thieves take note of cars that don't move for more than a day or two, and if it looks like there's something valuable inside...
In any case...good luck and maybe your insurance will help you with it. Don't blame California. Low life scum are pretty evenly distributed around the world.

No no, the stuff was with me in San Diego. It was still in the car because I thouht we were going out again that night. We didn't and I forgot all about it.

The thing that's weird is there were only two cars broken into in the garage. Mine and the guy that brought the PA. The stuff taken from his car was not visible from outside the car. I'm kind of wondering if it was someone from the wedding party (there was a guy that left in a hurry after we all went in to the hotel).

Anyway, thanks for your concern/criticism.

Sounds like an inside job to me.

This is seriously one of my biggest fears in life. I even have the fear that if I had a laptop on me in a venue somebody is going to run up, punch me in the face, and run off with it. The only way I might be comfortable is if I was wearing a kevlar vest and the laptop was packed between that and my chest. For this reason I won't even consider doing a gig with a laptop until I get a second laptop that is specifically for gigs and then I would either have it on me at all times or use that security cable thingy attaching it to something solid.

I can understand leaving large gear in a car but never over night and something I would never "forget about". If it's something like a laptop or extremely portable I wouldn't leave it in a car for even 10 minutes.
