a: Musical audition ~
b: preparing for a 15-round prizefight
What: "Preparing for a musical audition is like preparing for a 15-round prizefight. It takes that
much preparation. Don't pick up a song and run through it a couple of times, and then take it
into an audition. You need to know that song backwards and forwards. Know the composer, the
lyricist, the appropriate tempo (which may not be the traditional tempo - more on that later), the
key you're singing in, and the show the song comes from. Know what you're doing with every
word - this is not an improv."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy
and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search.
The subject matter can be anything.
Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged.
The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with
the stark literalism of a relational database.
Metamia is like a girdle for your muses,
a cognitive girdle.
