    Yea when I'm all big and famous (ya know it'll happen don't deny..haha) I'm gonna just quit my band with all the millions that I have and open a club in the mountains. Then I'm gonna hollow out the mountain and put a big dance floor for all the disco chicks out there. Yea that's what I'm gonna do. Ha ok enough from me though, when is everyone else's dream for when they are old and gray.

    I would love to be able to make enough money to retire early, and teach at a university in Florence. I would love to teach philosophy and music, and play in a jazz band on weekends at a local Florence restaurant. I could go to Venice on weekends, and the rest of Europe on extended weekends. I'd love to make one 3 week trip a year to any country, and totally different every year, from Nepal to Bolize, to Egypt, to Israel, etc. etc. etc.
     
  3. well my band will have a great career in the underground punk scene
    and i will spend all my money on a giant strip of land in montana where i will construct swimming pools in the shapes of all the presidents of the united states

    When you work at a start-up, every day you pretty much think of what you will do if/when you make it big. Here is what I have come up with...

    First I would get my helicopter pilots liscence so that I can go around dropping water balloons on the schmoes still driving to work. Then, I would move to a small island with very few tourists. Maybe I would run a helicopter tour for those few tourists. During the summers, my helicopter, myself and my wife would go to Montana where I would work in the shop building basses when I am not hiking or biking. Sometimes, I might even volunteer my helicopter for rescue missions. All this, of course, when I am not travelling to far off exotic lands. I'd also like to go back to school and get my PhD, but that is another scenario all together.

    Or maybe I would hire the russians to shoot me into space....I would take my bass so that it would truely be the first Space Bass.

    Sell off everything I own, buy a 65 foot Hatteras, cruise it to the Bahamas, throw the anchor, build a bar on the beach out of bamboo, and live out my days drinking rum and eating coconuts and fish. A few babes would be nice too. I'd never buy another pair of shoes, all my shirts would be those ugly Hawaiian style shirts, and khaki shorts. Unless that scared off the babes, then I would dress differently...

    Hey, you said "dream"...

    I want to divide my time between NYC, Rome, London and various rural & wilderness areas throughout the world. I want to buy an old farmhouse and turn it into a recording studio (don't ask me why). I also want to write a book, but I don't know what I would write about. And maybe I would teach at the university/college level.

    When I'm rich and famous, I'll spend all day on the Internet, and sign up for a bass discussion board under a false name, inventing details and a persona, gradually winning everybody's trust, until the day comes when I can finally reveal the shocking secret of who I really am...

    Sorry, I was rambling a little there. I'll also buy Blackburn Rovers FC, and force the manager to play me every week. And maybe, just maybe, sign up to be a Supporting Member...
     
  11. First Id buy a high school type building and live in it. Its gotta be in Canada or somethin tho. Then Ill find and buy a large field. And Fence it. And have demolition derbies and charge people $20 to get in. And I will be even richer. And there will be beautiful women who will love me. Then.....






    I will wake up. :D

    OK I decided this is a boring fantasy so let me add that I will own a gold-plated Mercedes-Benz and a rocket ship and a time machine. I will also occasionally seek advice from a talking panda bear I will name Eisenhower.

    I would spend the rest of my life in the bahamas drinking Lemonade and judging wet t-shirt contests.
