I do really enjoy doing the seminars. Everything except the final moment. Blah blah I rap and chat for 4 or so hours about a wide variety of all things sound and then ok, that's it. And every time there is this awkward silence. At first it shocked me, then I started trying to lighten things up. Best I can figure it feels like a watching a show and the band stops mid set ore something. Mental note, must work on the end o seminar.
How much does it hurt our hearts to say goodbye to MCA? Oh man, such sad news and yet he left us with so many musical memories we love to remember. I met Adam back in 1994 on Lollapalooza when I was mixing L7. Spent some nights wander various cities and hanging a bit.
And thinking back a bit after reading the news today and seeing this article http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2012/05/boy-on-a-bike-becomes-moscows-tianamen-image/
I reminisced about 1999 MTV gig when Chili Peppers played in Red Square Moscow, the police presence and the excitement of the fans.

The Russian police form arm linked human barricades that split open so riot shielded special teams can zoom in and extract people before beating them with rubber clubs.
Ok, off to Virginia - DC Seminar.
