this topic would be much more appropriate (and better received)on TOS (link anyone, rc is rather bored) but i’ll ask anyway! when you were a child, what did you ‘want to be when you grew up’?

me: either a pharmacist (what kind of kid would come up with that?) or a ‘friendly alligator’. dang i was a ‘special’ child!

Alligator pharmacist, ahm, yeah….

I wanted to be an astronaut. But then again, who didn’t? I also dreamt of opening up a medieval restaurant, being a painter, saxophonist, what else…

I wanted to be a disc jockey. Didn’t happen professionally, although I did have my own radio show on the college non-comm.

a doo-dess

I had a serious lisp and couldn’t say stewardess.

That only lasted until I was 3 1/2… then the flood gates opened and I went through many phases- the most fun being the astronaunt phase in 85? Right after I saw Space Camp for the first time. I would fling myself back in my grandad’s lazy boy as fast as I could to simulate g forces!

What the fuck does a conductor do anyhow? Other people play the instruments while you wave a silly stick about like a wanker. Are you telling me a bunch of classically trained musicians couldn’t play a song without you wagging your baton about like a fairy?

Without a conductor the band would fall apart during performance and the music would sound like shit no matter how trained musicians are. You talking about upwards to 100 plus musicians playing a myriand of instruments at different keys, tones and notes at different times and it’s the responsibility of the conductor to combine the all of those aspects to make beautiful music. He is the leader directing the tempo and flow of the music calling the shots on stage like a movie director calling the shots on a film set or the head chef calling the shots at a busy, upscale restaurant. He controls how fast or slow the orchestra or band is playing and precisely when the music ends. All band members use their peripheral vision to see him and his baton waving in the air at the same time they read their musical notes. It’s not easy being a conductor and it’s obvious why they are required.
