    Hi,

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I'm not sure what this is about. I made no mention of drugs. I didn't think I implied drugs. I was trying to joke about the "hungry bassist wanted". If you've ever seen any of my gig reports you might notice that food is a big part of most of them. [​IMG]

    Hey Will! Yes, I'm in Wisconsin. Last night I enjoyed a local favorite, a Culver's Butterburger and some deep fried cheese curds.

    I lived there for a couple years... the vortexes are real but the drugs are officially strictly forbidden.

    The ad as quoted looks like a typical CL ad, and seems about right for the area.
    That said, if it was closer, I'd hit it, just for fun.

    Because the other possible explanations become increasingly scarier. ;)

    Better than the inverse.

    Obviously an appreciation for sarcasm and snark is something you have yet to acquire. Looks like everyone else was having a good time.

    There's only a "wrong" tray of brownies if someone's been getting sneaky with the Ex-Lax! :D

    Was it Kyle? Probably that jerk Kyle. He always thinks that stuff is sooooo funny. o_O

    Kyle is not to be trusted. :bored:

    Of course it's a stereotype, which means there's a good chance that it's wrong. Except most stereotypes have a germ of truth so it might be right. I'm the last person to make decisions or judge people based on stereotypes, at least in part because if others did it to me, I'd be a pariah. I figure the best bet is to just roll the dice and see what turns up.

    Anecdote: My last band I was with for 3 years and we were a typical dad band that did classic rock covers about once a month at the local watering hole for $100 a person. I got the gig by answering a CL ad. It stood out to me because it was written clearly and concisely and spelled out what type of band they were and what they expected of a new bass player and everything was even spelled correctly with proper grammar.

    At the audition, they explained to me that they always smoked weed during practice and also before shows so if I had a problem with that then there was no point in continuing the audition. Even though I never touch the stuff, It doesn't bother me if other musicians I play with do indulge, as long as they don't overdo it.

    Sure enough, every practice started out with them all blazing up and getting loose for a half hour and then getting a "booster" during our break. The only thing I didn't like was that I smelled like pot smoke after practice and I was always concerned about getting pulled over by the cops for a headlight out or something and them assuming I had Mary Jane in my car.

    Is that an unpunctuated re-affirment, or meant to be a double negative?

    Just checking up on you. :rolleyes:
