    I've spent many years working in programming, web development etc. in the tech industry. It pays well enough, but I've decided that I want to change and work in an industry, something related to music. Anybody else have these thoughts, gone through the process? I figure that as music and music production is my biggest passion, I want to have a job where I'm at least more involved in the music side of things.

    Cheers!

    Play the spoons, then learn the comb/paper trick, finally graduate to the kazoo. Wait for 4 full moons to pass, sleep hanging upside down from a window sill two nights a week, and you'll be laughing in no time.

    Set up an wannabe X Factor audition/management company, looking to improve possible competitors chances.

    Charge them vast amounts of money to use a shit studio to prepare, and for elaboarte photoshoots for local paps.

    Pick only the very best and the laughable worst and you'll be the new Simon Cowell within a year.

    PS. I want 10% for this.

    I've spent many years working the register at tescos in hackney, selling my penis in the parking lot etc. off hours sex industry. It doesnt pay near enough, but I've decided that I want to change and not live at my uncles any more and change to the sex industry, something related to my penis. which people say i could make money from. Anybody else have these thoughts, gone through the process? I figure that as my penis and being paid money is my biggest passion, I want to have a job where I'm at least more involved in sex and money kind of thing,

    Cheers!

    Whatever you do, don't quit you're job. The music industry isn't a one thats doing very well.

    ah saint patrick.
    was he a real saint? nobody knows. last time i saw him i was messed up on beans soaked in jim bean and scoffing some multi couloured vegtables that looked like tiny umbrellas for the guy off the lucky charms box. CEREAL BAWKS! anyway i digress. i saw him, he was helping some old lady with her bags from tesco, there were people having lunch in the park (i believe that is called alfresco) does that make him a saint? why was he doing it? you know why? it was out of respect. pft, he was a nutter.

    word up.
