    I'm placed right in front of trumpet section at band rehearsal. Now considering I play trombone, a lot of people would think that's karma :)
    I've complained so much about the loudness, that they agreed to buy some acoustic blast shields.
    I would mind the loudness so much if it was a good sound, and in tune. But that's another issue :D

    A school show that requires ear plugs?!....I've never had to do that before.

    No ear plugs needed here.

    Might need ear plugs for James Blunt though. LOL

    Small auditorium, crap sound system, worse sound techs, over-zealous horns, feedback/cutouts/squeeeeaaaaaling...yeah, it wasn't pretty on the ear!

    edit: and the aforementioned ongoing hearing issues I suffer with :)

    I really like it!
    The updates have been fast, got the March security update today w/Oreo and camera updates come regularly. I don't have issue with the camera (everyone's main complaint) because I don't use it for anything other than a quick snapshot, it's not the greatest out there but not the worst either. They have made HUGE progress with it.
    It's, the whole phone, gotten so much better with all the updates. I'm not ditching it or Essential any time soon.

    School sound systems are notorious for being bad at best. I have trouble with my ears as well. It's not all bad actually. I hear less as time goes by. I'm so hard of hearing now that even my parrot's favorite thing to mime is HuH? I wish it was that bad when my kids were doing the band thing. The big problem with the sixth grade band concerts is the band is combined with all of the grade schools. Not only are the musicians at the beginning of their musical path, but they have zero time rehearsing together. Makes for a real mess.

    I do hope they fix some of the sound issues before the show. That's what dress rehearsals are all about.... fix what's wrong. No matter good or bad... it's still fun to watch the young budding artists.
    And so as not to double post.... your niece looks swell with her instrument! Kids remember those that took the time to attend and those that had better things to do. Be there.. it will be remembered and appreciated.

    Yesterday in the car I saw a billboard that literally all it said was 'everyone NOSE billboards work!' And it had a picture of a dog with a nose close up. Weird.
