From time to time I place ads on the internet. BASS PLAYER AVAILABLE FOR PAYING GIGS ONLY. And then I give a few details about myself. I have my own band, I play in a couple of other bands, and I'm simply looking to pick up a few extra bucks for anyone who needs someone responsible in a pinch and is willing to pay. WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY do I get emails every week from people asking if I'd be interested in joining their NEW project, that rehearses 3 times a week, that's guaranteed to take off because they have REAL label interest, or a manager, or an uncle who once worked with someone who once knew someone who's brother did sound for KISS. It's getting really difficult for me to stay nice when I get these emails - they're really starting to get to me. I feel like responding with a simple, YOU ARE AN IDIOT. LEAVE ME ALONE. That's all. Vent over.
