Spanking, 10q 4 ur post.
It triggered the need 2 distinguish between 2 issues:
On the individual level it may b ok 2 keep an AMSTAF dog @ home w/ ur kid, teach children MAKRAME instead of math, or hire the PM's son 4 20K$ / month 4 surfing the web.
On the social level, we may feel queezy @ times when kids start getting chewed as appetizers by AMSTAFs, 8th graders require a support group in order 2 calculate 4 x 8, and land owned by the state is suddenly de-frozen 4 development right after it has been bought by the PM's son's boss.
On the individual level it's ok 2 abuse the recording / producing process, or have an anal intercourse with it, 4 all I care.
On the social level it's bad 2 assume it as a norm, idealize it or use it 2 hush up opposing opinions.
An incompetent individual may assume: Everything is music > I fart = I'm a musician > Mozart was a musician > I'm as talented as Mozart I just don't have HIS vintage compressors 2 prove it.
Music = everything
Debate = טחינה, SHIKUZ, TUMAA - Here, have a bone.
(The 2 don't contradict, do they...?)
A society assuming the same will end up being DOMINATED by another society with better survival values.
The thread was triggered by a PUBLIC article addressing a SOCIAL POV, and so did the following debate.
So 2 answer ur question, this debate was addressed @ the individuals seeking MAJOR improvement. It's ok 2 start small, it's ok 2 make mistakes, and if U and ur designated audience r 90% happy with the result then this debate is clearly not relevant 2 U.
But if U feel that most ppl r not happy with the result and U seek improvement, then maybe learning and specializing in 1 trade @ a time, collaborating w/ other ppl, and sizing down the role of GEAR in2 proportion would b a good advice.
And while it's ok 2 make bad trax that no1 gives a .s.h.i.t. about, it's also ok 2 make good trax that will bring out EMOTIONS in ppl, including labels and GALGALATZ ppl.
They ALSO have ACHLA grass, trust me on this 1.
