I'm guessing not very much.... And I'm starrrving! Hook a brother up!! LOL!


If I go to a top notch steak house here in say Beverly Hills, I'm dropping $50-60 for NY. Add a couple cocktails and some side dishes and I could of bought a used synth or some new VCO's for the modular. Don't even mention taking a date there....

( Oh, not a huge ROMpler fan.. I have some, but they don't get used much)

Wow, there is quite an interesting array of occupations here.

The closest explanation of what I do is theoretical physicist in the Display and Graphics Business Laboratory at 3M, though my doctorate is in electrical engineering and my postdoc in applied mathematics. I do lots of geeky math and optical design stuff.

That sounds really cool actually. And I feel rather stupid now... I had a hard time in my second year of physics.

Lol, that's pretty expensive indeed. Though I can't send you anything because of that vulcano eruption in Iceland. Air traffic is stopped completely.

(I do like ROMplers. They're practical, and great for on stage)

Currently I work in the warehouse for a sound production company, uncoiling and recoiling cables and ****. Sometimes I get to go off site too. It's ok I guess... Everyone's pretty nice and eventually I should just about learn some live engineering.

self employed, i run and work in a family restuarant. Im lucky that it gives me quite a bit of time to work in my studio, more than I would get in a normal 9-5 office job and all the stress that entails.

Plus we make a comfortable living out of it so i dont have to worry about struggling for money and bills.

Im quite fortunate that I can really dedicate alot of time to making music.

I manage Software Engineers. Half of them are posting on this thread. You guys get back to work.

Actually, I was a software engineer and in my current job I showed up on the first day and they said, "Oh! we know you applied for the developer role, but we want you to do some project management". I should have quit then.
I'm still there and now my Java skills are all but gone.

That's ok. I'm thinking my life long dream is to become a pin monkey. dfegad

Wow I almost forgot about this thread, since it started I'm still locksmithing full time in the family business but now I've also started at university doing a Bachelor of Science majoring in Maths and Statistics. Going to have to drop back to 4 days a week come February to cope with the work I think.

We have so much potential to make life better for everyone on this planet but we're consistently held back by a few wealthy, megalomaniacal control freaks who are putting the final touches on their global high-tech Orwellian surveillance police state. Even in "the land of the free" the Bill of Rights is now just an empty formality. Every single amendment marked with several *

If you think this has no effect on your day job, then you're living in denial.
politics is not hard to understand, its those people who promise heaven and they are trully after your wallet , the end.

Music on the other hand like everyday life is alot more complicated. And of course highly more productive and , of course it has alot bigger chance to save the world, than politic does. So why bothe discussing things that are not even important and off topic.

Before two years ago I ran a small internet/design company in Mallorca.

Two years ago I moved to Mexico (only for a couple of months...) and I have done so many things in that time:

- producer and composer for tv/commercials
- graphic designer
- web developer (mostly flash)
- photographer
- video editor
- motion grapher (learning after effects while getting paid)
- media producer/coordinator for museums
- interactive installations developer (arduino thing)
- giving lectures about the digital stuff I'm involved (djing, photography. em, etc)
- djing

2010 was a lot of work , 2011 will be about producing/composing, shooting my first short film, and travelling in this wonderful country.

My current job is called: Interior Mechanical Systems Installer. Which is really just a fancy way of saying I build walls out of steel in large buildings. ie: skyscrapers, stadiums, airports, industrial complexes any building over 4 storeys or commercial projects.

I am now a 3rd year apprentice and I don't want to do this job anymore. In the past year. I knocked out my front tooth, there have been pay cuts across the industry, I have been laid off a few times. Then, Thursday last week an on site co-worker was killed instantly when he was struck by a 12x 20 foot concrete form... he was 34 and had 2 kids.

I have done other things in the past. I may be a bit shaken up by this latest accident, but I think I really need to find a new line of work...
