Focus on keeping the gun steady, and slowly squeeze the trigger.

Don't jerk the trigger, that seriously screws with your accuracy.

Now they just need to find out how he died. First he died from a mosquito bite infection, then he was murdered by a jealous uncle who took the throne, and now he died from complications related to badly breaking his hip. Gah!


*infection from breaking his thigh

Session guitarist. Oh, and most people are probably going to tell you to go to Berklee.


That's the first half..


Go to Berklee, shmooze and make all of your connections, waste about 60k but get a solid foundation, transfer to a traditional 4 year and major in something else, minor in your instrument.

Use those contacts you made at Berklee to get a studio session gig and fall back on whatever your degree is in.

Or if you want a career in music that doesnt involve music, get involved with labels and study music business.

Or you can be like me and finagle your way into working for an awesome music website with no education haha!
time to call the aclu!
not only do you need a resume email, you need to adjust your myspace/facebook/etc accordingly. make it private or take out anything discriminating. if you reaaaally want to go to an extreme, make a "business" myspace for them to "accidently" come across.
tomato basil hummus & tortilla chips- even better!
whats the best band playing the whole festival? i vote glassjaw.
I'm GOING!!! Sunday!!

they're no glassjaw thats for sure

i love glassjaw i really want to see them live
i saw head automatica but they're not glassjaw


haha no HA doesnt compare, but they are completely different genres. Ive seen GJ 3 times live, so amazing.

That band doesnt sound like GJ, the singer sounds like Daryl Palumbo of GJ. But anyone who likes GJ I can picture getting into it.
Found a band whose singer sounds like Daryl Palumbo and I'm in love with their music;

Whats everyone think of new Gj? Has it leaked anywhere?
They were my first concert ever. 1998. Amazing
Quote by Hendrix4ever
well i'm sure sonicbids wouldn't be the best way to go for getting into a huge festival. you're better off at regular sized local gigs, sort of what the site was meant for


CMJ entry was exclusively through Sonic Bids though.. which is why the fact no one listened to applicants songs after they payed $45 just to be enteredt for CMJ (plus the $6 monthly fee) is a big deal
If you've ever used Sonic Bids, please read this and rethink what youre paying for..

(from a message board):

The CMJ Music Marathon, which takes place in NYC in October, may be rethinking their decision to use online submission site Sonicbids to do handle their band applications. To submit, a band had to pay a nonrefundable fee of $45. A major screwup by the site may just have shed some light on one of the organizations dirty little secrets.

Today, an email went out to a large number of bands telling them they were on "Standby" status, and to email the CMJ showcase director to let them know which days they might be able to play. About an hour later, the same bands received an email from CMJ Showcase Coordinator Robyn Baskin saying the following:

"There is a bug in Sonicbids system and the wrong email was sent out to many people. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. This is the email that you should have received:

It is with regret that we inform you we are unable to find a slot for you to perform at CMJ Music Marathon 2007.

Please realize that you made it through a number of rounds in the selection process and the music that you are making caught our attention for one reason or another. Unfortunately, the sheer number of applicants in relation to the number of clubs in NY makes it impossible for us to give every deserving band a slot at the festival, and while it may not be much consolation, we did try our best to accommodate as many acts as possible, including yours."

Fair enough. Standard rejection letter. However, Baskin made the regrettable error of listing the email addresses of all 675 bands that got the email, rather than putting them as blind carbon copy. Within minutes, the predictable and pathetic self promotional spam started coming in, from bands who apparently decided that other CMJ-denied bands are a good target market. But then it got interesting.

One emailer noted, in a less-than-friendly email to Baskin, that "Apart from the fact that we are now open to a bunch of spam, it has also brought to my attention that sonic bids has collected the $45 fee from at least 670 bands ($30,450) knowing full well that you could never accommodate all of the bands." Soon the folks at Shiny Little Records pointed out a little known statistic that comes with every Sonicbids account.

"Check your SonicBids account and see how many plays you received. Ours, attached, shows that there were NO plays of any of our music by anyone (CMJ was the only ap we submitted). $45 should at the very least mean that they get an intern to click play on your song once. How sloppy. Yes, I think a refund, apology, and full explanation are in order."

Soon it became apparent that there were a large number of bands who hadn't had their music even listened to. Now hey, anyone who doesn't know that Sonicbids is a sham hasn't been around the business very long, but it's a different story when you are forced to use the site to submit for a major industry festival. At $45 per band, it's hardly just a "cover our administrative costs" fee. It's a profit center, and as such, they owe proper consideration to every band who throws down the money, and at the minimum, three minutes to listen to the song they submitted.
Anyone who's used Sonic Bids EPKs needs to read about this HUGE CMJ screw up..

there are discounts for people with connections to the music industry in one way or another.
example, my college's radio station could have gotten cheaper tickets.


i'm pretty sure 90% of the attendees get in free
Quote by blackflag49
Wow, I just looked at that line-up. Meat Puppets and Del Tha Funkee Homosapien...I wish I could go but it's waay too expensive.


yeah think its more designed for industry professionals who make lots of money. anyone who plays there will get discovered if theywere meant to be.

Flat irons cause just as much damage, and possibly more so, because the heat is both higher and more centralized.

But they do make your hair softer. If you gotz the cash to spare, buy a Chi. They're amazing.



Not MORE damage if you let your hair air dry first, which I meant by no blow dry. It's more heat, but if you do it right and only go over each piece just once, its less. You can also turn the setting to low, in which its less heat. If you blow dry AND flat iron well then.. good luck. I do that, but I'm a girl and can handle these things. My hair is awesome.
Quote by blackflag49
Pfff...good luck. Maybe you can room with the cast of Friends.


hahahahaha. amazing.

"discount" hotels specifically for CMJ goers is $300+ a night.

yeahh, but then youd just get jokes about "being stuffed" all day.

Yankees fan?! I'd get murdered. I work with a girl who just got swung at by a guy at a bar for being with a guy in Yankees gear. Ridiculous.

You should see my little village. We had one child last year, ONE, and that was it. No parties, nothing. HOWEVER this little kid decided to ring the bell just in time to interrupt my dinner so I was ready to Wicker Man them, that would've livened things up a bit.
