    i just have that episode of the simpsons where krusty sets up klown kollege in my head, if it wasnt the price of a nice new guitar or amp i'd go for it, plus i reckon its a load of sh1t anyway, what are they shoprt of staff in the industry? dont think so, so why do this recruitment drive? money methinks. of course if anyone was goin in with a dictaphone and wanted to sell on the tapes on mp3's i'd buy them, anyone interested?

    600yoyos is a fair whack. Sounds like an interesting way to liven up cold Tuesday evenings this winter though. Wonder how long the course is running, or if it's just a brand new money-spinner for the organisers...anyone know anyone who did it before? or even heard of it before?

    Its got money-spinner written all over it. Who in their right mind would hand 600 euro over to hot press to hear a bunch of middle farts, the majority of whom ive never heard of, ramble on about the music industry. And what do you get at the end of it- some silly little certificate telling you how great you've been. And what will you do with this cert once you get it- stick it on the wall in your bedroom?? I seriously doubt if its an officially recognised accreditation.
