Being the poster in question regarding the rap stuff, I've got to tell you that conversation goes where it will. When you post something, you merely suggest the train of thought. Each person then boards a different train. That's the beauty of conversation, though it can be the bane of it if you're surrounded by dolts. <br><br>My point about rapsters getting shot more often than people of any other music genre was on target. It doesn't matter if the guy who got shot was an angel; he's in a genre in the recording field in which the artists tend to live by violence, the music tends to suck and the lyrics tend to be about the worst of the worst. Of course there is good and bad rap, but I'm an industry insider. Let me tell you about the recording engineers who have sworn off rap. Let me tell you about the engineers who have had to do it against their will, and have nightmares about it. I'm not kidding you. I know a lot of studios that review the lyrics before signing a contract with rap groups. Rap groups are the ones most likely to bring gangsters into the studio and spread out the drugs and the hookers and expose the studio to risk. I know a guy who is an engineer who actually invested in several of his rap artists, two of whom went to #1 on the charts briefly (possibly more since I was around him), but who had to ban rap from his studio because it (the rapsters, the process, etc.) was driving him crazy and making him paranoid. My statement was not a misunderstanding of what was being talked about, but a deeper understanding of it than some people are willing to accept.<br><br>But regarding conversation in general... who can control the wind?

Fair enough, but for that thread in particular, the artist in question was not representative of that whole violence/rap scene in question...<br><br>All I was saying is that it seems as if people tend to throw everything under the same umbrella sometimes...<br><br>Your thoughts on the subject are appreciated though- I didn't know that engineers had it so rough!<br><br>[color:red]Hold on...it's time for a</font color=red><br>
Well, the only way to truly avoid lame replies, like this one , is to never post anything at all. Or, you could try posting response guidelines with your topic starters, but that would probably go over like a fart in a space suit. <br><br>I remember hearing as a kid that even unwanted attention isn't all that bad. It's when they totally ignore you that you might have something to worry about. <br><br>Well, there it is, my potentially useless advice for the day. <br><br>Chris<br><br><br>Light-Imagery<br><br>
