Nevertheless, that?s the promise of the Master Gaita: a PVC MIDI bagpipe set. Music Thing has a piece comparing several different models of these wired wonders, and samples of their hallowed refrain. From $800-$5,000, underwear not included.

The Everything Test

There are many different types of tests on the internet today. Personality tests, purity tests, stereotype tests, political tests. But now, there is one test to rule them all.

Traditionally, online tests would ask certain questions about your musical tastes or clothing for a stereotype, your experiences for a purity test, or deep questions for a personality test.We're turning that upside down - all the questions affect all the results, and we've got some innovative results too! Enjoy :-)

Personality
You are more logical than emotional, more concerned about others than concerned about self, more religious than atheist, more dependent than loner, more lazy than workaholic, more traditional than rebel, more engineering mind than artistic mind, more cynical than idealist, more leader than follower, and more introverted than extroverted.

As for specific personality traits, you are adventurous (90%), intellectual (73%), religious (60%).

Stereotypes
College Student75%
Geek70%
Old Geezer67%
 
Life Experience
Sex27%
Substances8%
Travel18%

Politics
Your political views would best be described as Libertarian, whom you agree with around 84% of the time.
  Socioeconomic
Your attitude toward life best associates you with Middle Class. You make more than 0% of those who have taken this test, and 26% less than the U.S. average.

If your life was a movie, it would be rated PG.

We still need people for our 2007 season -

At the moment, we need four people to come aboard this season:
One male, young adult, for a small introductory role
One lighting tech
Two sound techs

Several of our previous tech staff have also moved on to
actual stage performance with us for this season,
hence our need for tech people.

This is a great opportunity to discover what mereBreath is all about.
