    NextCat: social network for musicans/artists etc

    I received an invitation today to join NextCat - a social network for those in the music and associated industries.

    It looks like it could be a valuable way for people to find and meet others in the industry and get exposure for their work.

    Sorry for posting Off Topic, but the phrase "The Music Industry" always makes me do a double-take. It makes me think I should be wearing a hardhat and steel-toed shoes to play the piano.

    "Hey, Joe! I gotta truckload of quarter-notes. Where do you want me to dump them?"

    "How ya doin', Louie. Dump 'em over there, next to that shipment of sforzandos."

    you FOOL!

    NEVER place quarter-notes next to sforzandos!!! Don't you know they're highly explosive when combined?

    At least he didn't dump a load of crescendos on top, that would just make something so destructive......

    I'm also concerned with the term dump. that implies a lack of storing procedures. Everyone knows that quarter notes need to be stored/hung on staves, else they start to decompose and growing tails and loosing potency, leaving you with a bunch of eighths and sixteenths. Similarly with sforzandos. Pile them up on each other and they compress and change into accents, or eventually tenutos

    Cheers...

    "Judicious use of rallentandos, ritards and the like will allow enough lead time for all to get to a range of safety from any exploding musical elements. In extreme cases the fermata or Grand Pause may be used, but only by a well-experienced and thoroughly seasoned professional incendiary dynamicist." - from Palter Wiston's SAFE CONDUCT IN MUSICAL SITUATIONS, 4th Edition, Oxford University Press, 1960
    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

    LOL. Alas, poor Joe, who had received numerous safety violations from OSHA, eventually slipped on some loose staccato markings that were rolling around the floor and impaled himself on a crescendo. Sad.

    Er, um.... Can we get back to Alan's post?

    *** Has anyone checked out NextCat? Comments?
