Desperate measures,

Anyone else been forced into doing things they hate to survive?

It was only a Fender frontman 15G, but it did the job for me for a long time

parting with it for 10 quid is very depressing

I had to eat my friend to survive.

credit crunch is actually a gain setting on my amp.

Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

You should've just kept it. £10 is neither here nor there.


It'll fund my cigarettes for a week

Just about

I'll sell my hair for £1 pound next week for condoms



Edit: I'll hold on to my guitar for now. I can play indie for a while.

TS, couldn't you stop coming on the pit and just cancel your internet connection? That would save some precious pennies.

So your cigarettes, which cost you more than £10 a week is more important? Surely it'd have made sense to cut down on those first?

...and this is the life you lead during the credit crunch?

Selling your amp for cigarettes is like selling your car to buy petrol. TOBACCO FUELS ROCK AND ROLL (by some accounts)

Seriously, is it that hard to find a job during times of crisis? Any job is better than nothing. I'd have thought that jobs like cleaning and working in warehouses and stuff are always in demand, regardless of the financial situation.

I'd gladly clean toilets if I had to. Surely there's a vacancy in such areas. (almost) Any job is better than selling your amp to buy cigarettes.

Well, Kensai ha a good suggestion with ranting in public libraries. Personally though I prefer Birchall17's suggestion. You should become one of those crazy hobo's who is convinced that the internet is part of a government brainwashing conspiracy and shout about it on the street. Think of it: as a hobo, you'll be working from home, you won't need a job (helpful in your surrent situation) and you get to rant all day.

TO CLARIFY

I didn't sell my amp for cigarettes, I sold it because I've wanted to get rid of it for ages either way

I sold a bunch of stuff this week

I'm 19, living in London, there aren't that many jobs around

When i bought my guitar, I had to save up for 2 months for an amp, so I'm used to practicing without one

If you've wanted to get rid of it, why do you care?

Then you can watch your bank balance rise.


I wouldn't really trust any banks in this financial crisis, some of them just want to save themselves while fooling people. If you ask me, it's pretty seedy.
