One of the musical groups for which I routinely sub has representation, and because I'm on the agency's email roster, twice each year I receive an email like this:
Daylight Savings time ends this weekend. Turn your clocks back 1 hour before you go to bed on Saturday night Oct 31 (Halloween)
Kathryn & Martha
Kathryn XXXXX, Artist Liaison
JXXXXXXX WXXXXXXXX Associates
Some would call this spam. I call it yummy. I want an agent! Not just for music, but for life. Someone to email me important reminders, organize my life into neat little printable itineraries, book my jobs, vacations, spouses, etc. Why can't I have someone to tell me where to go and what to do there? Someone to alert me to all the potential hephalump pits in my path before I fall in?
Speaking of which, folks, it's time to turn back your clocks. Minus agents, we'll just have to represent each other.
