Now back to the splashy spirit of this thread:

Was Mariah Carey set up with that lip synch malfunction? Some argue she was just lazy and didn't practice- but she has pro lip synched for over 2 decades now and can do this in her sleep- I suspect sabotage (Beyonce?)
It's basically the foundation of whatever religious belief I might deny I have, which is why I raise it here.

I see all phenomena in the universe, large and small, as the result of something going on, and then off again. You see this in things like black holes, and things that are born and die, and well, everything.

So the only question philosophically (to fulfill SimoninAsphodelia's perception of me as a pseudo-intellectual wonk or something) is: first, what does the turning on seem like, perceptually? This is sometimes called the rising edge. Even if it is infinitely fast, i.e. what we consider instantaneous, as long as it is a phenomenon that exists in time in any way, it is actually NOT instantaneous. The rise time has a start, and then a continuance, until it reaches some state, for some period of time, after which it reverses direction and becomes the second most important thing: the trailing edge, fall time, death, release, relaxation, darkening, whitening, however you want to conceive of as the progress from the on state to the off state.

All phenomena exist as a result of this process. Therefore! Computers and synths are just variations on combinations of said process.

As is everything else, in case that seems too arbitrary a linkage to some here.

To me, at least. Just one person's opinion.

Hope that helps!

Almost all performances like that are lip synced these days. No one wants to take a chance on the unpredictability of a real live singer. Who knows what they may sing!? I'm sure that was just board op incompetence and she just couldn't hear the track and tried to make a go of it anyway. I applaud her for powering though, the the general public just made fun of her.

Sadly, sudden or constant loud noises can cause damage to your hearing. Tinnitus is but one symptom. If you have neck injuries and didn't lead a total rock n roll lifestyle, then chiropracty is worth looking into.
Living the myths i see! Death metal gutarists headbanging causes tinnitus!

It's all tools in the bag. Sometimes your trying to paint the mona lisa with a putty knife, others your on your favorite easel with the best oil paints you can find.

This is funny. Do all the HW/SW fights get moved to "The Moan Zone?"

Perhaps we need to do another vote on whether or not to make this the normal practice

I never missed cleaning heads pinch rollers and guides, leadering reels, pre-striping SMPTE, setting up record/repro amps, calibrating Dolby SR units, lugging around 100 lbs of tape that had 40 minutes of music...
