theres definitely a threshold point, and it isn't reached by
approaching it directly

stuff i know they love to just vacuum up

i can understand the cultural difference. resources be
scarce. lots of crew over. fridge raided. i don't really do
that.

i suppose, once, cape clawed, landlord and roommate bum a
bunch of zigs off me and they're apologizing and i'm all
"fuck it whatever just glad to have you guys about"

so obviously now they start bumming zigs off me constantly,
not because they need to, but just giving me shit,
basically. finally, i'm like: alright, this is fucking
obvious the whole time fuck off, i'm cutting you off

and they thot that was right hilarious. but they stopped
milking it after that. i'm not some fucking hippie sap

what's the best condenser for an attic closet that, while
not exactly luxurious or free of spiders, does actually
sound decent with a test clap, and will provide some
reasonable degree of isolation, while still being within 1-2
XLR of the desk?

last person i asked started talking about room treatments;
i'm all: stop. i haven't even bothered to shell out for the
cubist fing for that corner over there. yet. best stick with
sweetwater, right? browsing that on amazon is terrify

that the, er, vocal booth, will be an unfinished attic
closet within an attic that looks like a finished 80's
basement. let's not get ahead of ourselves?

i guess i have a bin full of weird shit mics -- packard
bell, mac LC, the weird crap 1/8" mics those all came with.
have a ton. a shit radio shack mic for the deaf with
riggings to wear like a necklace. it has 3-band eq on the
front. surprisingly ok for field recordings

but then, i have a shure PG-58. that's my only, like, i
dunno, real mic?

steve albini once said something like, "the SM-57, yeah, it
sounds quite good on just about anything, if by 'quite good'
you mean like an abortion hitting the floor'" or maybe that
was just he did to nirvana's mix

i can only imagine what he'd think of my PG-58. he'd
probably use it to bludgeon me to death upon sight of it

anyways, good mics? thx

Dunno if all this is supposed to be metaphor: but what a
load of bollocks.

     i tell u what mate that's doing my
head in
out of my playlist im going to listen to this instead,
kool keith talking about his fridge


i tell u wat m8
i just had a parody idea

37yo refrigerator. becuase i suspect my fridge is literally,
possibly, that old. best of the 80's vibe. if i had the
fortitude of bowel, i'd drag it out from its nook to verify
via the model plate that has not seen sunlight for, oh,
twenty years perhaps

and instead of seltzer it's just a bajillion bottles of
aquafina. because, like grandma has seltzer and grandma
candy as a defense against resource drift, so do you, with
lots of bottles of aquafina, because water has a very high
specific heat and you load your 37yo refrigerator up with
aquafina the night before the heat wave hits so your deli
meat doesn't start to smell like steve albini's mix of heart
shaped box
