Hey all, just had an interesting chat with a house guest over the weekend, friend of a friend whom I’d not met before, and turns out to be a Logic user with a sem-pro studio. After the usual GAS and spec comparisons, I asked him how well the wife (he’s in his 30’s with a small kid) takes it when he goes into his “studio-trance”… you know, the one where you forget about time, eating, hygiene, the kids, etc… because you are wrapped up in a project, whether your own or a customer’s… I can relate, I zone out big time when I get the opportunity… (as recently as last night )
Anyone here got some good stories or life lessons for us? My other half endures my absences, or when I am working at home, bites her lip when she’s overheard the click for several hours, etc… perhaps not all “other halfs” are forgiving?
My biggest gripe (which really is nothing) is when she slams the bedroom door shut with “just the right force” for me to hear it during a late night recording session or when I am listening through my monitors at a late hour. The nerve of her being mad at ME because I am keeping HER awake.
I suppose I should be a bit more considerate at that hour but, sometimes inspiration can’t be stopped. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
Well…I’ve got it made, I have a superbabe ex model wife…(the perk that comes with being a photographer) who is a writer, so she spends as much time in her study as I spend in my studio…no pressure from me to her or her to me…awesome!!
