    Markie,

    Don't worry about Alison's hardware - she can afford what ever she likes and she can use it well. So it is not an issue..and even if I get Maybelline I won't sound like her...neither will I look so OMG ROFL

    Alison is advertising for Schilke these days. There's a great looking ad near the front of the ITG journal. I'm sure if I would buy a Schilke I would be able to play like her.

    Rowuk, you're too old!

    for what?

    I am old enough to be legal anywhere in the world
    I am old enough to play double C - softly
    I am old enough to appreciate the fine things in life, instead of trying to redefine them

    I am young enough to drink with ANY colleagues that I might perform with
    I am young enough to waste a cello section in the orchestra during Saturn from Holsts The Planets
    I am young enough to actually enjoy a meal at McDonalds

    I am just the right age to be "ageless" (my daughter may disagree here....)
    I am just the right age to hold down a full time job, teach and perform over 100 concerts a year
    I am just the right age to take it down an octave during a rehearsal

    I am too old to appreciate mouthpiece safaris
    I am too old to be tolerant of just plain dumb
    I am too old to want more children of my own

    I am too young to stop learning
    I am too young to call it quits if it doesn't work the first time
    I am too young to leave Trumpetmaster because of intolerant trombone players in the forum that I moderate

    So, I guess I am just too. I wouldn't trade my life or any of its events for anyone elses.

    One of the real special things is the choice of so many fine musicians. In this case, Alison with her horns is Balsom for my soul!:roll:

    .

    The only comment I make I'll make is that it is less expensive than other brands, but it too is not a magic potion.

    Then too, publicity glamour photos utilize professional makeup artists and stylists. DYI is questionable!

    We certainly seem to be unearthing lots of old threads lately...not that there is anything wrong with doing so.
