I’m suspicious of people in the arts who presume that they can jump disciplines. I used to call it the David Bowie effect — I sing, therefore I am a painter, therefore I am also an actor… I resist this impulse on my own behalf.
Audio engineer and musician Steve Albini was Reddit’s AMA (Ask Me Anything) the other day. Among many topics, Albini’s favorite pizza, music “piracy,” how he records drums (hint: he’s really good at it), why he hates jazz, and my new favorite quote about baseball: “Once you get into baseball other team sports just look like variations on a theme. Dogs fighting over a rag doll.” (via nprmusic)
this thing he says about baseball ^^ so true.
