    Y'know what? Maybe I'll adopt that affectless, computerized monotone when responding to the reed players in the front row who bitch about my volume.

    Can't remember who's signature I cribbed this off, but I've never heard it put better than this:

    "There are two sides to a trumpeter's personality: there is the one that lives only to lay waste to the woodwinds and strings, leaving them lying blue and lifeless along the swath of destruction that is a trumpeter's fury; then there's the dark side...." --Michael Stewart

    ROFL

    PS - Why does the Lead Trumpet have that limp-wristed southern English accent? Sounds like an oboist to me "I am the Lead Oboe player. I have the best tuning in the orchestra. Everybody must try and equal my tuning....."

    They are viola players... playing second fiddle to the violins is all they know how to do.

    Anyone else think the lead guy looks like Chuck Mangione with sunglasses?

    I did notice that the trombone player doesn't know the correct dynamic marking for pianissimo. Typical.
