Your weekly musicians' ads.

This week's batch? Nothing to write home about, honestly. Our first one is just weird. I tried to find the post it's in response to but it seems to have been removed. Still, as it stands - out of context - it's just weird enough to enjoy.

I'm including this ad because it's cool. And he uses the words "musically related". Help this guy out if you can.

i didn't know where to put this ad, but it is music related, so, yeah.
I'm interested in making a documentary about amrep and it's bands. but i have no equipment. i imagine this would take about a year to complete.
i've never made a film before, but i'd like to try to do the editing and directing, with some guidance, of course.
i doubt that there would be much, if any, financial benefit to this, and it would require some small traveling costs. i just hope to meet some people who are interested in doing this and contributing anything they can.
i'm sure the film would be successful in small venues and festivals.

as far as contacts, i have a few, and most would be very easy to get a hold of. i have no more than 3 degrees of separation between myself and almost all desired interviewees.

i am in my twenties and so are my roommates
a couple of my roommates play guitar and drums, we could collab Or, you could start a band. Problem solved.
i have a few songs that i've written, the themes are: Nobody cares.
environmental destruction, the garbage patch in the pacific, and pollution
my lyrics are political i guess I'd say those themes are more environmental but, hey, potato / pototto.
i can play keys You see? You play keys. Your roommates play guitar and drums. Start a band with your roommates. Easy-peasy. as well as sing on pitch or growl vocals. i'd rather stray from the clean vocals...
i'd be willing to play in a noise, crust, OK, so... that's code for doesn't shower. powerviolence, or experimental, metal/thrash band or anything really
basement shows perhaps? or jamming. or venue shows.
lets get that creativity flowing, shall we?

Whistler for Your Indie Band (Minneapolis)

That's a thing?

You know you can't have an indie band without an attractive girl up on stage, Actually, this is something we've covered ad nauseum and I would beg the contrary but go on. that's why you need me. I am a superb whistler. OK, who let Zooey Deschanel on Craigslist? I can also play the recorder and piano, Oh, so you are a musician. OK. You see, for a minute, I thought you were just some daffy bird. but whistling is my specialty. Chill out, Zoos, I have my doubts that somebody's going to want you to just stand there on stage and whistle, further, I doubt that somebody's going to need whistling on every song, so, uh, you might want to put those piano skills out there further. I'm alright at singing, so could do some backup vocals as well. I'm 23 and don't want to be in a band with some high school kids, Thank. Fuck. Somebody gets it. but if you're in your 20's and have an indie band that's lacking a whistler/back up vocalist/keyboardist/recorder player, Uhh... I'm your girl!

Can Anyone Teach Me to Dream (out there)

I think it would be just dreamy to be in a band. I've got the sleeping part down, but I don't know if I'm dreaming right.
