Best Moment: At the end of my band's first 40 minute set (even though we had two replacements for the gig coz two guys couldn't make it). Just felt completely accomplished, it was the best playing I'd ever performed (i'm a sax player), and everyone in the crowd was digging it. (This was several months after next question's answer)

Worst Moment: When my sax teacher of 6 years told me that if I wanted to keep working on jazz music, I wouldn't become a professional musician because there aren't enough oppurtunities in Australia, and that I'd only be able to make money and support a family if I became a classical player. It was the worst because only a week before that, I'd won first prize ($350) in a music competition with a mostly jazz performance. Needless to say, I felt rather betrayed and now have a new teacher.

Favourite Song: Cazador - Steve Hunter Band (released last year, but whatever)

Least Favourite Song: The Dark Eternal Night - Dream Theater. When they started into it live, I was like... godammit. That song is what started my turning-off from their music.

Most Expensive Purchase: I've been slowly paying off a saxophone all year, it's quite expensive.

Hopes For Next Year: That several courses/bands I tried out for this year and was knocked back from, I will achieve getting into next year. That'd be good.
