    What does everyone do for normal jobs?(Im pretty sure most people here don't have the luxury of music full time). Has anyone been busted by their work for using talkbass too much?

    Webmaster. Surfing is my job description ;)

    Maybe that's stretching it a bit but my employers (http://www.lewisham.nhs.uk/) seem happy that my creative juices get enough stimulation to keep me coming up with the goods.

    fulltime dreamer ;)


    Actually, full time computer geek. But I always loved that line from Spinal Tap. I do programming, network admin, tech support, and some database admin.

    I tried music full-time and it just doesn't seem to pay all the bills. Perhaps my tastes are to extravagant:confused:
