    The only people I thought did it well were Cynic, but even then I thought it kind of took away from the music despite it being a stylistic fit. I also kind of feel like it can be effective in spots, but not if overused.

    You hear it now as a stylistic thing -- unfortunately -- but I'm so old school I don't know how I feel about it being used clear up even little mistakes and tone fluctuations -- not just in singing but in guitars or other instruments -- which apparently is absolutely ubiquitous... a no brainer.

    To compress a very long story, I once spent an evening at Groovemaster Studios -- which is run by a producer named Johnny K (Disturbed, 3 Doors Down) -- in Chicago. A buddy of mine ran a studio in Chicago at the time, and a group of engineers and studio owners went down to hang out for a night at the studio as it was being built. I didn't and still don't give two ****s about Disturbed or 3 Doors Down but it ended up being a pretty cool experience because the guy owns the whole building, which is at least five or six very tall stories and the site of an old beer warehouse. As I recall he had one smallish studio built (smallish for him at least, it would be hard to overstate the size of this place) but was working on the main one and had plans to turn other floors and areas into living spaces for bands, a music school, a gym and a bunch of other ****. Oh, and he had a 1930s Cadillac lifted by crane to the top floor and then knocked a hole in the side of the building so he could have it brought in (just so bands could listen to mixes inside of the car). It was kind of mind blowing, like going to recording studio NASA.

    Anyway, my buddy, being an even bigger "bring back tape and vinyl" nostalgia dork than me, asked Johnny K about those kind of standard Pro Tool fixes, whether anything is lost when you refine things that much. And Johnny's basic response was that not doing that makes a record sound old. That sound -- that looseness, the "errors" -- is what makes old records sound old.

    So the second day out on this last trip our satellite went out. I may as well have been in a stone age cave. Just catching up on Fins FA news now. And sports/wor;d news in general, really.

    A good version of the Scarlett Johannson nude scene hasn't hit the web yet, so you didn't miss much.

    Ive never done so much reading. I got my moneys worth out my kindle over the last month for sure.

    Recommend "Shantaram" for anyone interested in those sorts of novels FWIW.

    Shoot that ****er. I have a great sweet Asia marinade with a peanut/coconut dipping sauce I use for goose breast. I slice the breast very thin and marinade it over night or two days even in the sweet Asian sauce. Then I get a grill up to 400 degrees and skewer the the meat fillets, lay them on the grill to get a nice char and then set them out with a side of the dipping sauce.

    It is delicious!

    They're a federally protected species. If you mess with them or their nest it's a very large (several thousand dollars) fine. Believe me we've all gotten plenty of emails from the company telling us what happens and what to do if a goose comes at you. It's almost comical how many goose emails we've gotten. Several times a day I glance over at the windows and there is a crowd of people looking out the window watching the goose take on a car rolling through the parking lot or some poor soul just trying to walk to or from their car. It's like the games at the Roman Collesium in antiquity.
