When you notice 16khz in some sort of home video or recording and point it out to people with a look afterward.

Yep. That was me.

I guess it's also a survival technique as to why musicians have a bunch of women on the go. It's not just having a high animal sex drive, it's a learned response to fight homelessness, cause they never know when their ass is getting thrown out. ahahah

You clap your hands in every stairwell, test drive the empty wine glass at the restaurant, hum along in unison with the vacuum cleaner or drum along with the windshield wipers at the intersection.

Haha, or when you're in a friends car and you're like:

"dude, really...let me show you something."
- you fiddle with the EQ and Balance -
"See sounds better right!? Hey. hey?"
- friends just looks at you -

That, my friend, is impossible. You must've been so grief-stricken that it affected your perception!

I also am very guilty of the regular joe for being able to listen to music like a normal person.

I'm that guy who can never listen to a song all the way through when listening with others. I need to explain to them what's going on and why the kick drum is so great for example so I skip the a different song which is a better example. Then about a minute into that song the guitar tone will remind me of a different song and we do it all over again with the tom sounds....ugh. I'm sorry to all my friends, ha.

The Arranger

An L.A. recording session ground to a halt yesterday when an oboe player, who was constantly sucking on her reed during rests and between takes, inadvertently inhaled and swallowed it.

The conductor immediately called 911 and asked what he should do.

The operator told him, "Use muted trumpet instead."
