I thought, for some perspective, I'd google "two year prison sentence" to see what you got to do in our country for an equivalent punishment. Finally, on the sixth page, there was a reference to something OTHER than the case at hand: Ja Rule wlll spend two years in the hoosegow because police discov...

The way I work things is to send a single "production sample" for approval-- and then once it's approved, I crank out all the copies exactly the same. There's just too much mystery 'twixt the cup and the lip to say "yeah, the look that we talked about, that'll be fine." If indeed the final product d...

I'm listening to the bootleg I made of the James Taylor concert at Tanglewood last night. I kind of wondered how 'efficient' the ban on handheld recording/photographic devices would be, and the answer apparently is "zilch." Although-- the security guards were carrying what did look like guns... So s...

Actually I just kept adding question marks so that the second line would stretch out as long as the first, I think I have some kind of mental condition where equalness and balance take precedence over, well, what would you call it... 'meaning'?

... that's something to keep in mind whilst mixing, 'how does this sound to the unknowing ear?'....

I am qualm-less when it comes to marching right into Guitar Center, head held high, and buying something I need. I love it that there's a place where you can find ANYTHING sitting right there on the shelf, calling out to you. Got some great deals on second-hand gear too. But let's get one thing stra...
