The Final Pathetic Bleatings of the Forum
I humbly request the wisdom of PlatoReplies:
I am playing percussion in my school's musical. We are
performing My Fair Lady and it i actually pretty good. My
problem is that I get treated like shit. My conductor
gives me crap about playing the chimes. The people on
stage hate the people in the pit orchestra because our
conductor can't count which means we can't play along with
their singing correctly. What should I do? We have 3 more
performances. I feel like just not going to play but then
I would be letting down a lot of people since I'm the only
drummer. On the other hand if any of you have ever watched
the movie of My Fair Lady it doesn't have any percussion at
all. I'm really just there as a filler part. I have to
sit in a chair for 3 hours doing something i usually love
but not when I've done over a million times and am
personaly sick of. I had two weeks worth of 3 hour
rehearsals and about another few months of 2.5 hour
reahearsals twice a week. I decided to this because I love
drums and I used to love this musical and also i figured
i'd make some new friends. I still love drums but i hate
this musical and i think more people hate me than before.
Only one person i know ever thanked me for doing this and
it was one of the actors. Although it was directed towards
the whole pit I really appreciated it. Everyone else just
sort of ignores us. I'd rather be reading instead of doing
this and I almost never read.
Should i just abandon the musical or should stick with it
and just keep on feeling depressed?

It was kind of a stupid role, and I got to sing the stupidest song ("You Did It") in the entire play.

We were all Kosh.

Normally I would tell you to blow it off and quit, but frankly since there are only 3 performances left the relief you get from quitting will be exactly balanced out by the shit you get from everyone for 'abandoning' them.
Just grit your teeth and smoke some pot before the next performance. You'll be fine.

Why does Peterb always get to give the sage, useful advice meanwhile I'm stuck being the oversexed gay jackass? Hmmm, perhaps if I alter his command file....

I think you overtwisted the potentiometer. Back it off a bit.

I'm open to the idea of gay sex, if it was with the right person. Perhaps a good friend.

Ooops. The knob broke off. Now we're screwed.

You know, it doesn't matter who you love. It's how you love that's important.

What's all this about your "knob" breaking off?
