Alternate Career Barrier: Where are the Bridges?

Posted by on 1:31 pm in cuanewvoices | Comments Off on Alternate Career Barrier: Where are the Bridges?

What is the primary barrier to entry to alternate careers for musicians? Usually used in business parlance, a barrier to entry is an obstacle in the path of a firm wanting to enter a given market. Actually, barriers to entry are all around us. They exist in music to ensure that only qualified individuals obtain licenses to practice, when they are obviously forces for good. You see them used in the dirty world of real politics, where they may be forces for nastiness; witness the barriers to entry to the U.S that the Mexicans are experiencing...

Posted by on 8:24 pm in cuanewvoices | Comments Off on T in the Park 2016

T in the Park 2016 What a day yesterday was. Of course, I was at T In The Park 2016. After the craziest mix up regarding tickets I could even imagine, I finally made it. A few months ago I bought two Saturday and two Sunday tickets for the best music festival in the world. The reasoning behind this was that I wasn’t sure if we’d be able to go for the full weekend due to money and work stuff, so I figured I’d just buy two lots of day tickets for myself and the boyfriend and if we had to, we could sell the Sunday tickets to some friends.

Please Don’t Stop The Music

Being the anti-social, home always, hard to make have fun type of person that I am, I decided to get out this weekend. On Saturday, it was the Honda Battle of The Bands and like a lot of people from my school and State, I decided that I too would go. For more reasons than just to see the band. Any way, it was pretty ace if you ask me. Being a band geek, I’ve only been apart of a show, so it was nice to “see” a band than playing in one. It’s a lot different, and of course less tiring and painful (except than for composing music). Even though I...

Posted by on 5:02 pm in cuanewvoices | Comments Off on Mamatulip’s Top 100 Albums of All Time — 39-30

I’ve gotten a lot of really great guesses as to which of these albums is the one I listened to while in labor with Julia, but so far no one’s nailed it. So keep your guesses coming – you can make your guess at any time during the countdown (personally, I suggest waiting until I’ve posted the entire list) but it must be in by midnight, EST, on the day I reveal my last block of albums– and you only get one guess, so make it count. The winner(s) will receive a cool ass mix CD compiled of songs from albums on this list, and don’t...

The Value of The High School Yearbook

Posted by on 1:20 pm in cuanewvoices | 0 comments

I had a great conversation with my nephew about the value of the high school yearbook. He actually has many different ideas about all high school things. I noticed in high school that, for many students, yearbooks  are either something to get every single year, or not at all. Some students buy a yearbook no matter what, but others completely refuse every year. Students always are told, “you’ll want a yearbook to look back on!”, but being young it’s hard to actually decide if that’s true or worthwhile. Why buy a yearbook? Having a yearbook is...
