So Pit, I just used my money on new bass strings (It was an emergency!), and now I don't have money for food this week.

I mean it, I have no money left. I'll just have to live of some buddies, I guess.

Not really anything special to do here, just thought I'd share, so everyone can laugh at me, call me stuff, etc.



EDIT: Share similar stories, where you've prioritised your music (or any interest) over something you need?

I live alone, go to school, barely have any time to work.
I guess you couldn't call me rich.

What do you do then that fills up your time so you can't work?

No food, but you've got the internet, huh?

Funny, when I was super poor, I couldn't afford a phone line.

Ration out your money more wisely, I guess.

I keep buying shit loads of gear and having to get food off me rents because I'm awesome. That's rock and roll. When I'm 50 and my liver is ****ed from all the good times, I'll recite stories about how I needed a Marshall stack more than bread.

What, you have some sort of allowance or something, or do you you get paid once a week?

If it's the latter I'd suggest asking for early payment, I'm sure if you don't have money for food your employer will understand.

If it's the former.... Get a job, or stop trying to be independent when you clearly can't.

Anyway, have you considered prostitution?

I get payed once a week. But since I can't work that much, I don't get payed a lot. So I am kinda living off my savings. I am independent.


And yes. But I would just end up having to pay people to buy me

I would have saved the money and used it for food rather than bass strings (unless you need the bass to make a living). Food seems more important than not playing bass for a week or so.

Quote by Alex Vik
You say you can't eat ramen, but your money for food this week was only $20-$40? And how are new bass strings an emergency anyways?

Sh_tty priorities.

When two strings break right before practice one day, and I have another practice and a gig this week.

It's not to make a living. But one of the bands I'm in is in a big contest, and we actually had to sign some shit and stuff, so there's no backing out.

I'm sure your school and bandmates will understand that you can't complete your obligations to them because you need to eat.

That's what a band fund is for. You guys should set one up.

And buy singles for the strings you need, not a whole set.

This is why you keep your old strings for spares.

I've never changed the strings before, had no spares.

I had to buy a set. There are no music stores around here, so I had to go to a shitty electronics store (where they for some reason sell guitar strings.), and they don't sell less than a whole set.

Your username's got 'oy' in it - are you sure you really need all four strings on your bass to play?

Not being a dick, I'm just sayin'.

Well, as I said earlier, try asking to get paid earlier this week or something.

Also, school homework shouldn't take up much of your time. In fact, it shouldn't take any time at all. Try to work more, or, if all else fails, get some assistance from your parents or something.

Also,
