What do you think.
Can you be a good musician AND a good programmer.
Or do you need to do something full time to be good at it?

Those are in no way mutually exclusive.

Impossible, you have to dedicate your entire life, every waking minute of it to only one hobby, poly-hobbyists are not accepted in any culture and are generally killed at birth.

This post caught my eye <.<

You can be 'good' at many things, depends how good you want to be I suppose.
Your never going to learn to be the next greatest guitarist if you spend time on other hobbies,
Likes wise your probably never going to be a famous guitarists so don't quit that day job

In short yes, of-course you can, I am XD

They are in no way related.

Thats like saying "can you be a good peadophile AND a good surfer". Being good/bad at one has no effect at being good/bad at the other.

Why did you pick pedophile? You could have picked anything else, but you HAD to pick pedophile!


I feel like the implied emotional state of the above character is what I'm feeling right now, leony. You just had to...

Although to be honest, I don't see anything bad with his analogy. He just picked two ridiculous options to make a point.

Except that music and programming can have overlapping elements, especially with specific types of programming (MIDI program, music software programming, etc).

On the other hand, unless you have a pedophile that only is interested in surfer kids, I don't see how there can be any correlation there outside the realm of complete absurdity and strawman arguments.

Seriously though I play guitar well (or so I tell myself to be able to sleep at night) and I'm not too shabby with programming/synthesis/ect.

I thought TS's question was absurd, and that an absurd response was reasonable.

I'm a fairly decent musician and a decent programmer. Not a master at either, but how many people are masters of anything at 23?

I AM, however, a master idiot.

Yes, his question was absurd, but the level of absurdity of the aforementioned response was too much. It ruined it.

Why not? A lot of famous musicians are also amazing at a lot of other things.

This sums me up rather nicely.

I'd say (and I hope) that I'm a better programmer than musician, though.

Also, holographic concerts seem like such a boring idea. The other musicians can do some improv, but the singer will be the same every time. What's the point of a live show, then?

Both question and my analogy were absurd. That was the point. Like rockingamer2 said, I picked two random things that you wouldn't relate to each other in most ways. I could have picked any combination such as 'Taxi Driver and Fry Cook' or 'President and Sewing'.
