    RE: Cell Laws

    Hands-free laws would never work in my neck o' the woods, due to lack of enforcement. The cops here all have laptops mounted in their cruisers, and can presumably download porn in the middle of a car chase, if necessary.

    I do. After all, I'm King of Liberia, as far as we know...

    Unenforceable Is Correct

    Furthermore, I hereby declare Liberia a failed state and myself their King.

    The amount of training, manual dexterity and left-right brain integration required to become a brain surgeon or a musician is actually very similar. The only major differences are that someone has to sign off on a brain surgeon's qualifications and the brain surgeon needn't own (nor purchase) his own tools. Well, that and if I inadvertently hit a Bb in the middle of a C major scale, nobody gets paralyzed. (also, you can be a perfectly average brain surgeon and still make really good money) I also take issue with Dubber's (and Nina's) lottery comments; the music business has nothing in common with a lottery other than the occasional unexpectedly large payouts, because anyone with a dollar can be eligible for a lottery jackpot, while it takes years and years to grow a good musician, and even longer to grow a good songwriter. (see brain surgeon comments above)

    The idea that making music is easy and fun is complete horsesh*t, but we sell it to the public because that's what you're buying. It's actually as agonizing as giving birth, and then somebody comes along and steals your baby and claims it for their own OR they tell you it's too ugly to feed and should be put out to sea on an ice floe. On some of my darker days, I begin to believe that there are people in this world that don't deserve music, and that we should at the very least have a single day out of the year, International Music Day, when no music of any kind is allowed to be played anywhere on the planet, and all y'all can have a great time listening to nothing but the sound of the wind, some ducks and geese and a few million cheerful car horns. Of course music is a gift, but musicianship is not, it has to be earned.
