Re: Stop me before I mix again!!!

The problem, for me, with sending it to a professional would be that I would have to spend money to do so. And that's the whole point of this home recording thing for me, to not have to spend all this money going to a real studio. For the money I spent getting it mixed I could buy another mic or wha...

Re: Jump the Shark

It's hard to remember. One had a song called "Jenniferever" as the first song and had 3 other songs. I remember it being kind of college-poppy without as much harder rocking edge to it. Another, I forget if the tape had a name, had versions of Rhinoceros (with a keyboard solo instead of a guitar sol...

Re: If you could have a super power...

Making time stop and start again like those Twilight Zone/Simpsons episodes.

It's the key to everything. No money? Just stop time, go shopping, and bring the stuff home. Stayed up late mixing and now you have to go to work? Just stop time and sleep 8 more hours.

Re: Stop me before I mix again!!!

I think part of my problem was when I did the initial tracking I knew much less then I know now about getting things to sound good initially, and I tracked exclusively with headphones, and I got a lot of shit tracks down. So there's some bad sounding drums, phase issues, misuse of compression, a lot...

Re: Exit Strategy- Iraq

Dammit, I'm snowballing now and I can't stop. Plus, how can one take the moral high ground about removing Sadaam (which I agree was a monster) when our government actively courted the support of Rwanda, Uzbekistan, Uganda, etc. for this war? It's OK for Rwanda to have genocide (oops sorry "ethnic di...

Re: Exit Strategy- Iraq

83 nations supported us. Um, where does this number come from? Granted, I am pulling all of my information from wikipedia, not from a variety of sources, but I believe at last count there were 49 nations in the "coalition of the willing". There were 15 nations in the "coalition in the not willing t...

Re: Stop me before I mix again!!!

Yeah, but what do you do when every time you listen to it you think "This sucks. I could never play this for somebody else without feeling embarassed".

But then again, I guess that's what you mean by letting go.

Yeah, but you can't do bucket bongs behind the wheel during a long road trip with the sun shining bright, no traffic, and a pile of great CDs to listen to.

Well, maybe YOU can.

Re: Stop me before I mix again!!!

I'm doing the 3 to 4 year plan myself. Only 6 songs too. I do Bear's plan, but all those "weeks off" have been part of the reason why it has taken so long. But it really does help you not hate the songs. Anyway, you could try giving the rough mixes to your bandmates. When they start complaining "Tha...

Re: Jump the Shark

I agree about the earlier Pumpkins B-sides. Are those collected on a disc somewhere that isn't part of some big box set? That would be nice.

I have 2 or 3 cassettes that predate Gish. I wonder what those are worth on ebay?

I'm not familiar with Def Leppard history, is that a "When Paul Di'anno left Iron Maiden" type of situation?

Re: Millitant Grammarians of Massachusetts

Does verbal grammar count? I have a friend that says "Gunoo" when he means "Going to". "I'm gunoo go to that show".

With the Denny's thing, I think that's just truth in advertising. Whenever someone says they are offering a "GREAT" job, you gotta wonder.

Re: Bush Monkeys

The fact that the Bush Monkey picture appears over the entrance to the Holland Tunnel, to be seen by thousands of people every day, puts a tear of joy in my eye and makes me remember what makes America great in the first place. That's awesome. I wonder how long it will stay there.
