(Welcome to a recurring feature on A to Z: The Craiglist Musician Post of the Week. Associates and friends keep sending me links to funny and/or bizarre listings -- ones that deserve to be shared with the world.)
Things have been a bit quiet on the Craigslist front -- at least until yesterday afternoon, when the ad LOOKS LIKE.... (SL) appeared.
I WANNA START A BAND, BUT IM SICK AN TIRED OF PEOPLE FLAKIN AND NOT WANTING TO WORK OR SACRIFICE FOR MY PROJECT. I HAVE VISION THAT NEEDS TO BE FULFILLED AND I CANT PLAY EVERYTHING MYSELF. WELL I CAN, BUT NOT AT THE SAME TIME SO I NEED PEOPLE TO PLAY.
DELEGATING RESPONSIBILITY, THE HALLMARK OF A GOOD LEADER. BUT THERE ARE RULES INVOLVED FOR THE BAND, PEOPLE. RULES! INCLUDING:
RULE 1, MY BAND, MY RULES! I DONT CARE IF YOU BEEN DOIN THIS FOR 30 YEARS, I KNOW WHAT I WANT, AND I DONT NEED YOU TELLING ME IM IMMATURE OR WRONG.
RULE 2, NO DRINKERS SMOKERS POT SMOKERS LOSERS CHICKS OR BALD OLD MEN. THIS HAS TO LOOK LIKE A PROFESSSINAL DEAL, AND HAVING ' THE LOOK" IS JUST AS IMPORTSNT AS PLAYING ABILITEY. AND CHICKS JUST ADD DRAMA SORRY BUT ITS TRUE LADIES.
RULE 3 YOU HAVE TO BE 18-20 OR SO. ID LIKE IT OF YOUVE BEEN PLAYING YOUR INSTERMENT FOR AT LEAST 10 YEARS, BUT WILL CONSIDER THE RIGHT LOOKING PEOPLE WH HAVE LESS THAN 10 YEARS.
RULE 5 YOU HAVE TO HAVE LIVE EXPEREINCE. IM NOT TALKING ABOUT SHOW CHIOR OR YOUR LAME GARAGE BAND SHOW IN YOUR MOMMAS BACKYARD WITH YOUR SNOBBY CHICKS HANGIN OUT AN NO ONE ELSE. I MEAN STAGE TIME...I HAVE BEEN O A STAGE BEFORE SO I KNOW HOW IT FEELS.
SURPRISINGLY, RULE 4 MUST BE SILENT. SO WHAT'S THE MUSIC SOUND LIKE?
THIS STUFF IS CANT MISS METALCORE ALL ORIGINAL. CONTACT ME IF YOUR A SERIOUS MUSICIAN AND CAN HANDLE WORKING FOR A PERFECTOINIST!
