    Great connections to be forged,

    Good ideas to come to the top,

    This should be great. I've been banging my head against being an instrumentalist for a while and went through innocence to experience to attitude to arrogance to overconfidence to embarrassment to cringing servility to just starting to fuck around again like I used to- full circle

    As I begin to be actually decent at various things- which in some cases I'm only JUST beginning to be decent, regardless of how many neighborhood kids think I'm Jimi Hendrix- I'd really like to be working with people for the cameraderie, the experience, and just plain getting to do stuff with other musicians, which in this small town I basically don't.

    It's been a long slog getting this stuff together and I'm hoping to make some connections and get out there and do stuff

    Is this the thread a newcomer introduces him/her...self.
    Hi every one! I'm Annemarie and I am a singer/songwriter/lyricist based in London.
    I mainly work with light classical music, standards and traditional folk music, French, English, Swedish, Spanish....I work live and have a CD out called "Secrets"... but I have ventured into this strange new world of yours recently mainly with my lyric writing...and it is very exciting...
    So... passionate about cross over music...
    Be gentle...
    Nice to be here...I'll check every one's music as I get more familiar with the place, and can post a couple of examples of recent collaborations in the next few days.

    I'm a newbie here, but I plan on sticking around for awhile. I loved the mixerman diaries, and can't wait to here some more stories. I've read quite a bit of the live sound forums, and man, can i relate. My main gig is a live sound FOH engineer/systems technician, but I've dabbled in the studio as well.

    If anyone has any questions, don't hesitate to ask. That goes the same for criticism/arguments/whatever....I'm a pretty easy going guy who likes to get and give some shit now and then.

    Hi everybody

    I didnšt find any other place to give alittle presentation of myself so I might as well do it here

    Well after years of talking about this place Otek finally persuaded me to join the womb (before it became the womb he was nagging at me to join the marsh=)

    I live in Sweden, I am 24 years old, turning 25 in August, and I love writing music. The genres I write in is mostly mainstream (bubble gum pop, rock, glam, would love to write country)

    I'm looking forward to my stay here at the womb, be gentle with me

    Rock On!

    I tend to agree with the topic title of this thread. As a refugee from KVR, I feel like this place has more to offer in terms of serious music related learning and interaction. Thanks to everyone for putting it together, maintaining it, and contributing quality input to it!

    Hello hello. Been lurking here for a while. A friend who is seemingly over-active here introduced me. This place seems a fair bit more friendly that that slutty purple place over yonder.

    Cheers

    The bottom line remains - no matter what fancy plug-ins they come up with and what super flat response microphones. If the artist/band is shit the sound will forever be shit no matter what knobs you twiddle.

    Don't let them fool you. They lull you into complacency with talk of musicianship and performance being more important than gear but they eventually end up making fun of your haircut. Everyone here is on my enemies list. Except you. But I'm watching...

    Initiation? Been through various forms for plenty of days and nights... nothing new in that department I guess.

    I just asked around...nobody has the vaguest notion of who you are or might be or why you were banned. Apparently whatever it was that got you banned was utterly un-memorable.

    Thus, it seems nobody has been quaking in their boots awaiting your return.

    So, what got you busted the first time?

    Well that's hardly a banning offense...

    I mean who doesn't insult Aardy around here?

    Don't forget, we are all engaged in a battle to the death against mediocrity.

    The best radio mic system that money can buy is ALMOST as good as a $20 cable.

    One of the most important things to remember about sound is:
    'Sucks' is always conducted better than 'Rules'. - Pimp-X wisdom


    Never underestimate the power of stupid - Blackie C (RIP)

    Ego and talent seldom go hand in hand... Talent and humble on the other hand... - Zoesch

    Weedy ignores this simple bit of glaring obviousness because he is an "ELECTRIC BASS GUITARIST"(coughcough)
    and views the kick drum as a "bass riff rhythmic pattern suggestion generator" - Slipperman
