but then after my first year I was like fuck it I want to make bank. music majors are bullcrap.

I think I might minor in Comp Sci so that I could go to work on something like DAW programming. How do you like it?

And you can speak for everyone's expectations, ever, not just your own?
a lot of folks in the program at my college switched. i hear complaints from them too.

sounds like shitty application, not a shitty concept

college in general has ways of not working out like you had anticipated tho, regardless of program

Lawl. Art school in a nutshell:

Me: "Wait... this isn't what I expected it to be at all? After six years of saying this is the only thing I was good at, it turns out I was good at other things?"

Art School: "Don't worry. No one scores a career related to their major."

Honestly, it's what you take from it. Sure I'll never be a plastic surgeon. But who the fuck really wants to dig into people skin with a knife for a living only to add synthetic materials/ permanently change their clients physicality? Just fucking have an education and be happy with the fact that you can afford one. 1 out of 3 kids in Oakland drop out of school without high school diplomas. A friend of mine was dating a girl who had two kids. Her daughter is dropping out this year. She's in in second grade. She's supposed to be in 4th.

You kids are privileged as fuck and I'm drunk...

Not necessarily. Considering only 22% of the people taking the Physics exam get an A or a B, and F is the second most popular grade, it's a pretty tough exam. Exams here in Malta are crazy tough; there's a 40% pass rate for Maths as well. That means more than half of the people on the island taking the exam get an F.

Anyway, that exam was easier than I expected. Still tough and some weird questions here and there, and the graph paper was terrible so it took a long time to plot a graph on it, but hopefully I landed an A.

NOT THAT ANYONE CARES.

Internet arguments

I had an argument on the internet (Twitter), it went on for quite a while, and it did not result in idiotic name-calling. In fact we even wished each other a good day at the end. This is not the internet I know, but I'm pretty happy about it.

so i just ordered this mixer "Numark MixTrack Pro II". Anyone know if this thing was really worth $299.95? I make electro/dubstep music and was just looking for something to help me out with transitioning from one song to the next at future shows and was thinking of incorporating some mixing as well. I understand there's free software for that but it looks kind of shady when you have a live dj performing with nothing but a macbook pro on a milkcrate lol. (completely off topic->) I also got the galaxy S4 for verizon 2 days ago and i'm really friggin happy with it so far :)

Hi guys, I don't know why I keep checking in here every so often but I can't quite give it up (despite how inane some of the discussions are). Also, I'm in Manhattan for the summer :)

I was gonna say the same thing... usually you want to ask if something is worth the price BEFORE you commit your money to it.

But hey... if you've got the money to spare, by all means, find out on your own, our opinions don't really make a difference now that you've already bought it.

Thanks you guys helped a lot... now i can sleep tonight... (said me very sarcastically lol). it's not like i didn't do any homework on the product at all.. and compared to other ones, this one was pretty affordable for it's quality.. plus i'm actually really good at managing my money, i do have a job and live on my own and do well for myself.. what i was REALLY looking for was a response from someone with some EXPERIENCE with mixers and similar gears and an opinion on whether or not this is a good piece of equipment to start off with.. i should have been more specific in my original post..

thinking of changing my name from rhoder to Metalax. My music is starting to lean towards drum & bass now instead of ambient. I've been using the tag Meta for a lot of RTS games for the past couple of years - which is how I came up with this one.

does anyone disagree with this new approach of my new image? or do you all support it?

I just made a soundcloud if you all want to follow :D I'll follow back, promise!

Next time you want to buy DJ gear new, come to me instead. I'm the DJ manager at a guitar center. I woulda sold that to you for 264.99 new in box...just saying.
