    Mostly don't make enough to support themselves on that job alone?

    Have relatively short careers?

    Are mostly only popular when they're young?

    Mostly like to think of themselves as more irreplaceable than they really are?

    Tell chicks in bars how cool they are because of their job?

    Must struggle against others in their field for more attention, attention being directly proportional to pay?



    Oh, you already answered

    I feel like majority of these apply to most conventional jobs as well...
    "Tell chicks in bars how cool they are because of their job?", is more often hyped up by Hollywood, I rarely see anyone who trains talk about how much they train or how good they are. Usually it's the dickweeds who do this kind of thing.

    I also feel like the stereotype of fighters having rhythm isn't as spot on as people think either (at least not as directly relate-able to music as people think). Just because you can box doesn't necessarily mean you are a good musician :). People can dance, but they can't write or play music, if you get what I mean?

    Both fighting and music are artforms more than they are sciences. There are formulas that you follow, but everyone adds their own unique touch to their game. Some fighters are completely off rhythm and whilst people might not enjoy them, other people love them, which is the same for musicians.

    Being involved in both of them, I feel like the only true thing that they have in common, is that Centrelink primarily feeds both of my habits until I, "get big" :(. Sad world we live in, but in a few years, if neither have kicked off, I'll be another slave to the system :). I'm just glad I live in a country that can support people like myself until a point is reached where it's pretty much like, "hey look, you tried, time to get a job buddy". Most other countries don't even provide this kind of opportunity...

    we have so many frauds, fakers and charlatans on this forum and they rarely get the comeuppance they deserve. Appreciate your effort tho, lets hope it keeps him honest.

    Lets hope, but chances are he's just gonna keep posting his garbage here and wherever else he can. At least no one here will take him seriously.

    Jazz rhythm can be a bitch. Someone please post a video of a fighter shadow boxing to a 9/8ths jazz song.
