"Freelance Bassist" is one of the cooler occupations I've come across. If it meant "bassist" like "I-play-in-a-few-bands-we're-kinda-Radiohead-Pink-Floyd-roots-jam-band" bassist, then you'd just be a hippie working at Cold Stone Creamery. But it's the legit bass. "Freelance bassist" conjures images of a motley caravan travelling between oases in the desert, performing minstrels and thieving from the townspeople in the night, only to disappear into a sand storm come morning. I'm sure that's how you see yourself. - Juice Wesolowski
