I had a beautiful Spinal Tap moment today :
I was mixing a very cool TV commercial for VW, and the agency people were discussing the movie theatre mix, which we're doing tomorrow, and commonly referred to here as the "Dolby" mix.

The VW guys asked when the 'cinema' mix would happen, to which the advertising agency girl replied "we're doing the Dolmy mix tomorrow".
"You're doing what ?" I asked
"The Dolmy mix !" she insisted
"Ah yes, sorry, I forgot. The Dolmy mix. Tomorrow, indeed".

It was just sooo frustrating not to have anyone there to share it with. :lol:

I always say "Dobly" now. It's just a habit.

Promoter shows up at practice to invite our singer to do a show sponsored by a local radio station.

Promoter: "We've heard your CD. We love your music and think you'd be perfect for the type of show we're doing."
Singer: "Well, I prefer to perform with the fellas right here.
Promoter: Why don't you just get them to lay some backing tracks for you?"
Me: "Why don't you just play the fuckin' CD?"

A so-called friend of mine offered to sell me his wireless rig.

I can still remember him saying, "try it out for a few days, you'll love it."

So in my infinite lack of wisdom, I tried it out on a gig.

There I was three songs into our first set at a shitty pool hall in Bixby Oklahoma when my amp began blaring KVOO, country hits of Oklahoma.

I'm sure that wireless has come a long way since my bad experience in 1987, but I still won't touch those things.


I like wires.

We were playing at a club that was slap up against another club. Our singer was using his new wireless mic. During the jam section of a song, the singer left the stage, and decided to save his batteries by turning his mic off. The guitarist in the club next door was wireless on the same frequency.
