on spec = if we like the mix then MAYBE we might buy it from you!

you have to realize that most of the time you'll be competing against everyone they've asked to do a mix. So at the end of the day if they don't take your mix then it was a complete waste of time and money. Especially if you've hired musician's/engineers/studio time and etc.

In this business TIME IS MONEY!!!!

my theory is...if they've called me already..then you know what i why even bother irritating me?
as soon as I hear those magic words...
spec? you can kiss my ass and while your at it i'm gonna **** on your face for extra measure just for wasting my time!

On the other hand...if you're just starting out in the biz then spec MIGHT actually be a foot in the door...but I counter that with ..well...what door are you opening?
And are you positively sure you really wanna go through it?

Remixing is a thankless job unless somehow you've been able to make several hits and begin to be recognized as the "go-to" guy/girl. To get to that point is a total lottery. Believe me!
I've been there...for example my rmx of Dido that got nominated this year for a grammy. Total luck job and thankless. I didn't even know I was up for hint from the label at all.
I didn't even know it came out!!

So producer beware...and that's why this video is so funny to us. It's sort of an inside joke for producers.
