I was a Master-at-Arms in the Navy which is just a lame name for military police. I was going to enter the academy but word is you can't have smoked weed within a couple years of entering the academy and i was dumb and smoked my last time on leave in december so that's that. So any help? And most intern jobs want you to be in school, and right now im not.

Good luck getting a job in the music industry. Especially with all of the mergers and layoffs. Illegal downloading is really hurting the "traditional" record companies.

you should really just go on craigslist and look for internships, also you could just contact the editors of different music websites and or magazines that you like and ask for internship info. you sound like a dweeb doing it, but its worth it when you get an interview or phone call. LA is the Cali mecca of music magazine headquarters.

I hear internships at mtv consist of getting coffee for the secretary's secretary. I also hear they love free labor.
