    I thought this was amusing - posted in the vilage voice classifieds:

    BASS PLAYERS: GET FREE BEER OR POT

    Reply: -----
    That's right. My band Dimah ------ has been looking for a bass player for so long that we have been playing shows with no bass player at all. Would you like to get down with a great band with a great attitude that is already ready to go. Check out our site and if you are between 20-30 and like the stuff, send me an email. If you come down and try out, I will give you beer or pot or both to enjoy while we jam. We live and jam in Queens but it doesn't matter where you live.

    This is serious,

    Thanks,

    Sounds like the guy is looking to get arrested for supplying!

    Next months poster: "Band with great bass player looking for guitarist to fill in for 3-5 years with time off for good behaviour..."

    I went for the heroin, but they said "THAT'S MESSED UP DUDE!".

    My solution is......look in the mirror ;)
     
  9. Sounds like a sting operation to me (and I'm not talking about Sting the bassist).
     
  10. Don't you know it's common courtesy to wait until the callback or second practice to get "the good stuff"?
