Ok, my lifestyle-support-system (borrowed expression, credit Fastricky/Rick) is Internet stuff for mobile phones. Software.
I've been a visual effects artist for the last 11 years or so. It's what you do with a music degree.
Worked at Foundation Imaging on a bunch of kids shows (points if you remember Roughnecks: The Starship Troopers Chronicles and Max Steel) and the first season of Star Trek Enterprise. Went to Rhythm & Hues for a couple commercials, then to Digital Domain for a few more. I probably spent the most time at Zoic Studios, doing visual effects for Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, and Serenity to start with, Talladega Nights to end with, and a buncha stuff in between.
Now I'm a partner in my own gig, Studio Orb, flying satellites around for NASA/JPL. We're trying to expand out to all of aerospace/defense.

I was a lifer in the Marines driving LAV-25's when I found out that I had Insulin-Dependent Diabetes, the Corps put me in a reserves with the 4 Tank Batallion in SD, I did construction and landscaping to make ends meet. Then I moved to beautiful Santa Barbara following a girl, got a job with the County. I am a very fortunate and I have learned not to take anything for granted. Heck my midlife crisis cost only a few thousand, a co-workers Harley cost $18,000, I got away easy.

We designed and manufactured alarm and control equipment for (primarily) the phone companies. I was the one that wrote the multi-hundred page technical manuals that went with the systems. I also did a lot of traveling as an instructor teaching classes that were anywhere from three days to two weeks. I also did field installations, turn-ups, and repairs.
