The Drama Continues...

Doing something tonight I really don't do often enough, listening to the many podcasts to which I'm subscribed. I'm only 1519 episodes behind, adding up to 67.87 Gigabytes of recorded audio and video.

Right now I'm listening to Sonic TALK podcast from 07/06/2017, a show about music recording and live music technology.  So they talk in part about technology for making music.  Also all that stuff the show engineer gets to play with, plugged into that vast and impressive-looking mixer.  Also the stuff that takes performed music and makes it sound like something above and beyond what the instruments themselves put out.

I wish I knew more about such things.  I'd like to be that guy at the show behind the mixer with the headphones... but I wouldn't know where to start learning how to do all that.  Too old to be a roadie, realistically, of the type that wrassles around those huge speakers and whatnot. Way out of shape for hauling around anything big.  For that matter, at my age, my hearing ain't what it used to be.  Hell, at my age, my used-to-be ain't what it used to be.

That sounds like my idea of fun.  And heck, MCing might be be fun, too.  Y'all know I'd sound good, as long as I don't have to improvise much.  Not a rap-style MC, of course.  The old kind.

I like to listen to SonicTALK because I like to hear folks talk about this sort of tech, even though I don't know much about it myself.  Similarly I listen to This Week in Virology, not because I know much about Virology or understand what the heck they're saying.  I like to hear intelligent people talk about intelligent topics.  It's a relief after all the politics.
