Default Re: Berklee is "Hogwarts"

I thought it was relevant and funny. And Bermuda is right. I see it every summer and Christmas when Disney hires the All-American College Band and the student musicians we use for the yearly Christmas parade. And even with that group of people, maybe .05% of them land another regular paying gig within two years.

No disrespect here, mind you. But it is semi-amusing meeting the incoming crop of eager young musicians and then to see them at the end of the gig having done a bit of soul-searching, or having the soul sucked out of them. One year we had a pretty blond girl on saxophone studying music performance at North Texas State. She was so pretty and so blond that she makes a pretty good living as a live Barbie doll for kids parties nowadays.

I'm not doing a bad impersonation of a sound engineer (sound guy?) there, either ;)
