Speaking purely economically. The job I strive for is to be the third percussionist who must be assigned the fewest notes over the course of the season. Alas, I think I even failed drum classes in grade school.
.. speaking of musicians. From an anonymous comment on the ADB's blog is a note that our wayward cellist Bernard Katz is listed in this music program from just last month in Brazil. He really is listed there on day 27 assuming there are not multiple Brazilian Cellists named Bernardo Katz that is. I kind of wonder whether Katz is even on any Interpol list that would pick him up if he traveled, let alone whether there is any effort by the Feds to get the guy. Come to think of it, I am not sure anything I have read says there is any criminal action against him at all. But it's fun to wonder how many cellists are on the lam anywhere in the world? I also am amazed at how many cellists pop up in Burghosphere discourse.
