    On the whole, as a general stereotype have you noticed bassists to either be ugly or (generally cute) girls?

    observation made by myself and some friends. My coworker wanted some hard facts and numbers before he believes me though.
     
  4. Hahahaha.

    It depends on if you mean before or after they put on the bass. Alot of them may be ugly before, but as soon as they put on a bass and start playing, they're all hot.

    uh....i guess before they pick up the bass? I fell in love with like a 7' upright bass player from the McGill Symphony Orchestra, but I almost pooped em with intimidation when she walked beside me. she could have thrown me across the room with minimal effort I'm sure.

    Well... no. It kinda fits the description of an encounter of a friend of mine though... I'll keep you posted if I get some details.
    I also have some contacts into the McGill music department, I'll see what I can dig out.

    Oh, and tell me when the MSO is playing next time, I wanna be there!

    Damn, If the 'dumbest question' option had been there when I voted, that's what I would have picked.

    Which reminds me...I'm hard and hot. :D
     
  19. Is it just me, or is the question phrased in a "what are you talking about?" manner?

    Read the title of the thread and then the question.

    Since I'm not a "generally cute girl," would I fall under the ugly category?

    Confusing Canadians..

    Talk about stereotype. My ex-girlfriend is Russian, and having known her for four years, I've met a lot of them. Russian women are HOT, and thin. They have beautiful attributes. Not one have I met would be able to throw anyone across the room.

    Those old black and white videos of hairy Russian women pumping iron could convince you otherwise though. ;)
