AMAZING OPPORTUNITY !!!

You'll have to act quickly, as the closing date is very soon.
The pay is remarkable, particularly when one considers the remarkable cost of living. :D

Love San Luis Obispo. Beautiful town. Yes, you would have to be a millionaire to live there and take the tuba job, but that's almost any nice place these days.

Why would you have to live there?
In the multiverse there is a TubeNet where we talk about how we greased our cat with toothpaste and hot sauce so it would fly better in the rain. Even then someone would ask whether the cat was lacquered or silver plated.

You don't have to, it's just a bit isolated, being halfway between San Fran and LA. Kind of a long way to drive for $60 a service. Musicians do that kind of crap all the time though, so it's nothing too out of the ordinary. I knew a tuba player in LA that would fly to West Virginia to play in a symphony. Could be worse.

I know. I was asking Joe why all the derision over paying work? It sounds a bit like his ridicule of edukaters and kollich.

After driving in from LA (or flying in from Idaho, or wherever) the $61.XX revenue could be used to pay off some student loan debt...you know: the money that was "invested" in oneself in order to become a "highest quality applicant that meets the highest level of artistic standards" 'n' stuff. :|
