a: Orchestra audition ~
b: Olympic sporting event
What: "An orchestra audition is like an Olympic sporting event. A candidate has one chance to perform at an optimal level, technically and musically, from start to finish. There is very little time to get comfortable in one's performance environment."

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.
