sorry about that. i have had similar conversations with people regarding studio stuff.

"oh you own a studio? like, a 4-track recorder in your bedroom?"

"no, an actual, functioning, professional studio."

"oh... well, um, how old are you?"


and, as if that was enough to infer that i was having trouble figuring the whole studio thing out: "well, once you've had some good experience ['like me' is what they mean], you'll get some projects. i've been doing it for 15 years and i have about 5 projects a year now. you'll get there."

"i had 6 projects my first year."


i know how you feel. it's as if people assume they are better because - tsk! - you were born in a later year than i was; something neither of us could control. i could use the whole "don't let people look down on you because of your age" bible verse here, but it doesn't do much good when they don't know that verse does it? :-)

hang in there.


Greetings from California! I'm trying to view as many of the sites participating in NaBloPoMo as I can (there are a lot). I'm only commenting on the ones I like, and I had to stop and say hi.

Substitute the word "gay" for "black" or "young" and you've got my life in a nutshell.

Catch ya around!


Yeah but the down side will be, when you don't get that anymore. I use to be a young lawyer, in need of assistance. NOW I'm the old lawyer you go to for assistance.


ugh, I'm sorry about that. Want me to come down there and break some knees for you?
