Quote by dannyalcatraz
She was- she showed up to court in costume every day until she was kicked off for other reasons.

Courtrooms have informal dress codes. You're right in that a comfy juror is better than one who isn't.

But wearing disruptive clothing can get you fined and/or landed in a cell for contempt of court. One of my esteemed colleagues inexplicably wore a penis tie to court: it cost him $300 right then and there, and he was order to go and change it a unless he wanted a day in the cooler.

Bottom line: her clothing choice called into question her capacity to act as a juror. What ultimately got her booted were her public declarations that the costume was equivalent to military or police uniforms. Not the content but the interview itself: the jury was under a gag order.*

Not only was she incapable of following unwritten guidelines of court conduct, she couldn't follow explicit judicial instructions.

What kind of Starfleet officer was she, then, really?


Guitars kick ass!


* That she wore the same uniform 9 days in a row may have initiated gagging of another kind...


yep, sure

Quote by necrosis1193
(a) read Dave's post and agreed with most of what he said.

(b) To me, it shows a respect for the power the courts wield. Regardless of how corrupt that particular district or courthouse may be, there's a lot of power in the law, and not showing that power even an insignificant show of respect like wearing a suit, when you're at its mercy as a defendant, or asking for its aid as a plaintiff, doesn't make sense.


(a)

(b) It depends on how you look at it, I guess. That's definitely a valid point... on the other hand you could argue that wearing a suit is actually being disrespectful to the court, because you think you have a better chance of getting off by wearing a suit.

Danny, the Canabis Rex sounds fantastic in my HRD. The sound isn't much different, but it got rid of all the shrillness at volume, which was my biggest beef with the Hot Rod. I'd highly recommend one for yours if you plan to eventually swap that speaker.

My final comment on Ms. Trekker: went looking for which case it was in which she pulled her stunt. It was the Whitewater trial- about as high-profile as it gets.

Hadn't even considered it. My beloved HRD hasn't seen the other side of 4 but maybe once or twice. I'm playing it in smaller rooms- my bedroom, my den, etc.- and members of my main audience have four feet and fur, so they're not keen on high volumes.*

Which means I've never heard any high-volume shrillness.

to clarify- i wasn't really defending her, i was more defending the principle that people who act like you're being disrespectful if you don't wear a suit are silly. and dicks.

I made just enough ($562) last year to enter a new tax bracket. I filed mine back in February. I only got a total of like $127 back. I did a lot of small deployments with the NG across the country and to Germany last year, so a lot of that money won't come back to me.

Interesting ad...though it seems I now know someone peripherally connected to the Wisconsin cheese & music mafia...

Already getting pretty active. I've got 3 bands that want me to come to all their shows and tech for them now. $20 and a free show isn't bad. There were a couple guys with guitars that always played together whom needed setups on their ZR trem guitars. I told them I'd drive to them as long as they covered my gas. Afterwards I was invited to their shows, ended up helping them sound test and set up their extras while they played.

Fixed up a dude's pair of S series Ibanez guitars. Those ZR trems are pretty nifty.

The guy books bands, so I charged him $20 for the both since he's going to recommend a few bands to me. Part of my business plan is that nothing ever costs more than $40. I've just been charging $20 for everything.

Now is the time to do some math.

As you start getting regular customers, start tracking how regular they are. If you get enough of them, you may be able to get what legal pros call a "retainer." But to do that, you'll need to see how much they're spending over a given period of time- monthly; every 3 months; every 6 months, etc.

Simply put, you try to sell people on the idea of paying you for work you haven't done yet, offering them a price break of some kind. If done properly, you'll reap the benefits of a regular cash flow, slightly enhanced by the time-value of money.
