The one that has been bugging me lately is the habit of journalists,(especially on radion) of starting every sentence with "So".
That one has been driving me to distraction for 3 or 4 years but I first really noticed it with the children I work with in school. When they hit about 9, they begin the answers to so many questions with "so" ~ but it's the way it's done that I find really irritating. It's "so" unnecessary !The one that has been bugging me lately is the habit of journalists,(especially on radion) of starting every sentence with "So"
Equally as annoying are those journalists and politicians that don't give the subject of their questions any opportunity to actually answer their questions, but keep on interrupting with follow up questions before the question is even quarter way answered.Ugh.
How about all these guys who haven't a clue how to ask a question properly. Establish context if necessary, ask question, stop talking.
Now all you seem to get is ask question, say because, talk about self for half an hour. I really don't like that
Like a comedian saying to the audience: "how's everyone doing tonight?" What's worse is when the response isn't loud enough, and then the person says "I said, how's everyone doing tonight!!!" Common with rock concerts as well, if you remember those.1 When they start with "hi what's up?"
2 When they don't edit their videos
^^^^^ Oh yeah...what he says. Why in tarnation don't these people realize that no one wants to keep adjusting volume....for a bunch of reasons??? Terrible mic use....or just bad production.....etc....etc. Not looking for perfection but leveling the volume overall......at least to a more usable point......is not that hard to do.If you’re trying to show me how a thing sounds, but I have to grab my volume knob every time you start talking. I acknowledge that it’s a bit tough to really even those things out especially when you’re trying to make it work across a relatively wide audience listening in any number of circumstances, but... If I’m listening to the subtle way that your favorite compressor colors this drum track, I’m sitting in front of my calibrated monitors turned up to my nominal working level and then your voice is just normalized to be as loud as fucking possible! Warren Huart is terrible about this. Glen Fricker is even worse because it seems like a lot of times the music parts are smashed through the same compression as the voice so you can’t actually tell what’s coming from the plugin he’s demonstrating and what’s coming from the “radio processing”.
I've been watching a lot of recording related tutorial videos over the past year - some are very professional, and many are semi. Many are just cheesy.
Above all else, the one thing that drives me batty is when they (whoever) cannot stay on the subject. When they have to comment on why or what the reasons are for this or that which have nothing to do with the subject at hand - they cannot resist explaining that this particular example track is bad because they were up all night and hadn't had breakfast yet... you know.
Kenny Gioia (Reaper) does not fall into this category.
