Have you ever had an individual who simply refused to practice good hygiene? Not even the basics like brushing their teeth and wearing deodorant? I know the 'starving musician' lifestyle means sacrificing the luxuries in life but does that mean everyone in the room has to suffer too?

Another thing... don't eat a fuckin bean burrito before you come in and then start stinkin up my control room!!! I find farts just as funny as the next guy but this is a closed space fer chrisake

Ok, I feel better now.

Something to be said for personal hygene in the studio. Sometimes, you're stuck... you work 3 days non stop and of course you will begin to rock the funk. And some people just fart a lot for some reason, but maybe we should come up with a reminder list:

-Shower Daily (Even if you can't smell your own odor, other people can)
-Make sure you fingers are clean, no dirty fingernails on the faders
-If you smoke , PLEASE ask people around you if they mind (and please smoke in the lounge or outside so you don't eff up the gear) and after you smoke, get some gum or something
-If you must eat in the control room, throw the leftovers/plates away OUTside so the control room don't smell like a sushi bar with a broken A/C
-If your one of these "I Don't Wear Shoes" people, please wear socks or at the very least, wash your feet so they don't look like "-mart feet"

Please add on if you got any others

Unless EVERYBODY is eating the same, no smelly food like

Fish & Chips
Scottish food
Kebabs

In the control room

(my CR is my dining room!)

If your feet smell, the shoes go back on.

Yeah, the worst gigs by far have been the ones where people don't shower or anything. Maybe two years ago I had a band in for three days cutting a demo and the guitar player was a biker and wore the same clothes all three days. My solution is to burn candles and incense. If it's really really bad I've actually considered telling people not to come back until they shower.

Oddly enough, that's what I call McDonalds also. I assumed that since you're on the same island as Scotland that you actually meant Scottish food.heh

My wife gets on my case when I eat crap like that. When I've eaten there I tell her that I dined at a Scottish establishment. She doesn't think I'm funny...maybe it's a guy thing?

This of course means that Taco Bell is Latin American Cuisine.
