    Is this an audio site?

    Or, is it a site to guide our fledgling young male readership in methods of self-appeasement?

    I think a more direct message is needed. "dear Rapper. If you cup the mic it will ejaculate in your mouth, and that will be really awkward, at best."
    "...but ma, audio engineering IS gainful employment!..."

    "...If I wuz at that club where Miles played one note I would have bounced ONE BOTTLE off his shiny fucking coconut. What? He's Phil Glass now?..." -Slipperman

    "...never attribute to magic, that which can be explained by conspiracy."

    When I was working sound a a punk club as my regular gig I'd generally put it to them like this: "You cup the mic, I won't be able to give you any monitors."

    It generally worked on the ones who weren't total idiots and image obsessed posers.

    Just want to share the Heil PR-35 is preatty good at keeping its voicing even when you cup it. Good to have/know if you are in that situation. From what I gather it's getting popular with the hip hop crowd, got reminded of it when an american band droped by the venue...

    Here's a video that shows it off; The singer is young, nervous, all over the place...
