    I'm gonna get a 4.0 in damage.

    So, I'm a senior in high school with no direction other than attending the LA recording school.

    So, that means all you people better pay lots of taxes to support me on welfare cause I'm gonna be a bum producer.

    She told me to ask my father. I would but I'm too lazy. I'd rather just hang out down at the train yard.

    MM - if you're really into music and production, I would recommend investigating what you need to do to work in live sound as opposed to the recording environment. I give this advice having recently graduated from an Audio undergraduate program and seeing what happens to a lot of the graduates and what placement is like. If you haven't considered live sound, look into it. As in any of the audio fields, though, you'll have to bust your butt to distinguish yourself - otherwise you _will_ be a bum. You have to make yourself marketable and valuable, and then you'll have a lot of work. I know a few people that skated by and only fulfilled what they needed to pass. I still see them occasionally... working their retail jobs at the mall.
  15. Heh.
  16. +1. There is far more work out there as a live sound tech or stage hand than there is in the studios. An education in studio recording techniques can only help you in this field, but so would things like classes in electronics.

    I'm also working and making money more regularly as a bassist than I am as a tech, which I NEVER expected when I went to school for audio engineering, so that's something you can look into to supplement the income. There are a lot of opportunities for doing sound in non-recording studio settings, but IME it's tough to find ones that pay well and work regularly without paying some dues first.

  17. actually, have u ever seen that special? some dude, fairly young.. in his teens, ran away from home and started singing and playing guitar in the street and got a record deal...
