Ok, here's a guy who's no fun, apparently- me.
I haven't giggled or smiled once while reading this, although I've read some other things on the forums today that had me laughing out loud!
It's too easy to make fun of these cheeseheads- and I'm not seeing the stupidest things I've ever heard on a session. Those things were said by engineers!
1) Me: Are you SURE the bass is right where it ought to be? [after trying to explain how when the bass is right, it opens up the mix, does it's job, and doesn't interfere with the leapin' out of higher freq stuff...]
Engineer: At this point, it'll be easy for them to get that just right in mastering.
[hint- the ME's didn't feel that way about it, at all! fuuuuuuck...]
2) Me: How can you possibly get a good mic placement without even listening?!
Engineer: Actually, I've gotten really lucky in the past that way.
Now THOSE are the stupidest things I've ever heard in a session!
