My daughter will be pleased by the Starbucks product placement

Here is a short film about the life of a digital artist (via linkbunnies). I suspect most of us can identify with the protagonist to some extent.

I'm certainly emailing the link to my orchestra desk partner (and section leader) who is blowing off a concert in June on the flimsy excuse that she has to deliver her first project for her new employer and they've brought the date forward from end of September to end of June (or something like that).

This means that when Chip Clark comes to conduct his new symphony, instead of seeing this immediately in front of him

he will see this.

Ah well. less distracting, perhaps.

Surely it is all in the eye of the beholder? they may well find you perty dear boy, or may well always imagine something/someone completely different in front of them playing the instuments...

That came out ALL wrong...!
