when i first started college i was going for a BA in Computer Science, then remembered i have the math skills of a cross-eyed dog...so i went back to my art roots and discovered that graphic design is an art job that pays...later on down the line i also discovered it didn't pay enough and that it's a high stress job and the people can go fuck themselves...but i learned to like it as a hobby and an artform of sorts...now i work in real estate as an investor/land lord...and no, there's nothing remotely slummy about my slu- er, houses...yeah, houses...the music thing is something i do in off hours...

I've got a pair of diplomas, one in psychology, one in sound engineering and music business. Couldn't afford the third year and got a little tired of Uni anyway. Maybe i'll do a third sometime, complete the degree, not sure what i'd do it in though.

I was a business major at Miami University (Ohio). Wish I had been a general music major, but I didn't know what I wanted in life. Met up with a guy I'm still jamming with over 15 years later, never really used the major.



Hey, captain_buzz, have you ever seen Happy Chichester/Howling Maggie play out? Happy is a Columbus native and a musical genius. He's an old rock-n-roll friend. If you are not acquainted with his music, you should look him up. You will be inspired.

People at any job will do that once you're at it a while.


Definitely not a studio engineer, but business/sociology is the major. Generally speaking, they're antithetical to each other (ie. capitialist vs. socialist emphases). So, I'm either...

a) well rounded or...

b) one of those people who bore and annoy Spotty.
