It's a little less amusing from the inside. The jobs that are left are crappier, the people who are left are meaner and the projects that are left are lamer.

The entertainment industry is going from a career to a stopgap - that thing you did for the ten years between graduation and moving back to Dayton. For those of us who do it for a living it's kinda chilling.

I mean, I know the guys who mix the Grammies. I know the guys who mix the Emmys. I have a friend with four parking spots on the Radford lot just from all the shows she's on. And I know that on the last gig I worked, only one dude on the sound team was under 35, all the PAs were being treated like shit and the project was deliberately designed to burn through people for money.

The people under 35 wanting to do what you do are all on Youtube where they don't have horror stories of casting couches and movies like Swimming With sharks etc to scare you back to an 8-5 job.

They're also making ten cents on the dollar and are going to quit soon.
