Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by superbassman2000, Nov 3, 2004.


  1. so i have this plan to have enough money for my baritone jaguar...i need about 300 people on here to paypal me $1.00.
    i mean, come on people, you can find $1.00 in your couch in change! or if you are really generous, 150 people could paypal me $2.00...or if you are really really generous, you could paypal me $50, and i'd only need 6 of you!

    what do ya say? ;)


    i was thinking about this walking on campus...if i could have 50 cents from everyone i see...50 cents is pretty cheap that they wouldn't ask for it back right? well, if i ask 400 people, i'd have $200!




    :D Charlie

    Damn! I tried a while back to get people to buy me a Bongo, but somehow you seem to have developed a better marketing plan. My plan didn't work. Don't know why, but I think yours is gonna. I'll happily donate a dollar - with just a little bit of sour grapes! Give us the paypal addy.

    I'll send you $1.00 instead of superbassman simply becasue you're prettier and that's the hard cold reality of the way our little world works. Sort of my twisted way of getting back at the fact that I didn't get 1 single cent donated to my bongo!


    Ahhhh.... Whoever is the first to post their paypal address will get a dollar donated from me!

    i'm not too sure what a paypal address is, even though i have a paypal account :p

    but my esteemed colleague says it's just the email address you signed up with..which is scardebris@aol.com

    i'll start my own thread soon. it's actually a noble cause. my orchestra is going on tour for a week next october but i can't afford the first deposit, let alone the full amount :(

    Here's a link to resources for grants and such for the arts. It could provide you with the means to get the instrument, or whatever you need.

    Here's the link

  17. In H S both my friend and I saved our lunch money every day for all of ninth grade. We Just mooched off every body else. I was starving by the time track practice came aroung but the coach let us load up on free PBJs.

    By the time summer came around he had a brand new Ibanez Flying V And I had My 1st Fender jazz. :D

  19. Try being a street musician. I know some guys who are getting $300 a DAY, if you can play well and get a good location. Bus stops are bad. Large plazas with mixed audience are good.

    Rock on
