    How quickly we become spoiled

    I'm in the process of mixing down a two CD set for the first in a series of audio classes I'm doing on human nature. I work in Nuendo for this sort of thing, and I've got 36 tracks to mix before burning the CDs. Having done all the tweaking, automation, etc., getting the final mixes is simply a matter of unmuting the music & voiceover tracks for each one and hitting a couple of keystrokes to save it as a wav file.

    Of course, doing this 36 times gets a bit tedious, and I was starting to whine to myself a little about what a pain the mixing process was. Man, how quickly we take this stuff for granted!

    Yeah, I guess the saving part of that is realizing you are not alone.

    We humans are spoiled. Think about it. We can put our money in stocks, and then spend the rest of the day sitting infront of the TV, eating cheetos while we go through thinking that our stocks are doing great. Well, joke is on us, you just became a victim of the second great depression. I hope you like that bigscreen projection TV...at least they can't get rid of memories...yet.

    Eh... spoiled is when you have too much for your own good. Taking what you have for granted and being spoiled are different. And tedious work is tedious work, whether or not you have technology to be thankful for.

    Also there's nothing good on TV anymore and cheetos are gross.

    It is easy to take all of this new technology for granted. Remember how it used to be in the analog world with patchbays, and mazes of wires, analog tape and a soldering iron. Today's digital world seems like a walk in the park in comparison.

    I believe this snack is know by us Brits as "Cheesy Wotsits" (although I gather they've now renamed them just "Wotsits", (a retrograde step in my opinion).

    And of course, the debate rages. Personally, I'm a "crunchy" kinda guy myself.
