What have you guys done to get enough money for an awesome amp or guitar you always wanted. Any stories of special jobs, funny incidents, etc are welcome.

I sold my bumhole to a skinny rich white guy in order to get some picks.

I can’t think of anything all that significant. All that I can tell you is I’ve spent over £1500 on new gear in the last nine months - all from my disgracefully low, under 18 wages.

£1500 Spent / £3.40 Hourly Rate = 441 intensely boring hours (to the nearest hour) spent in the garage down the road.

Oh the lengths we musicians go, just to get a better tone.

I spent countless hours listening to parents, coaches, and children all yell at me for making the "wrong" call, while simultaneously getting sunburned till I looked like a strawberry.


I hate reffing.

I serve ice cream to stupid, fat tourists all day.

If anyone here has been to Wild Willy's Ice Cream in Dorval and been served by a bored, pissed-off white guy, fuck you. And thanks for the tips.

Oh, quit your crying. I worked 15 hours on the sabbath day and a national holiday this weekend.
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools
