Ah.

We weren’t going for the rr / biker boys vibe here.

There is a RR event in the Bronx this week btw. I don’t think that info is on the net but ask around. We’ll be there.

I thought it was a joke but he was dead serious. And he sounded more like Mr Bean...

I had someone tell me once.
"$xxxx is too much, I don't have that kind of money. I just want to sound like Michael Jackson "

Filming live stage on 30k people festival. Big shot producer from big shot artist come during pause on stage pointing at everyone: "If you don't have to be here, get out!"

And we did. Already been working for 6-7 hours that day. It was great to finally stretch, have swim and beer while watching from distance how the producer is running in circles panicking why there is nobody doing the filming.

Were they the kind of earbuds that only work with music?

Only got to experience engineering in a "professional" setting briefly, small RAP studio in Sacramento. Recording a song called "My ESCALADE" hook goes like this:

MY ESCALADE;
MY ESCALADE-
GOT LAID IN MY ESCALADE

after the session, the rapper is asking studio owner for a ride home.
