Happy Friday Friends!
Harder, faster, louder! How about a proven heavy metal classic for this week's playlist?
Or how about "Pastor of Muppets"? Bah-dum-ch! (Good one Ralph!)
I feel a bit guilty about sharing this record this week. It is such an obvious choice! You already know about this record but please, pull this oldie but goodie out for me and we can head-bang like it's 1986 together!
I read a very cool article in the most recent Tape Op magazine that I'll link here: https://tapeop.com/interviews/124/michael-wagener/
Michael Wagener mixed "Master Of Puppets" and in this interview he shares a hilarious tid-bit about working with Metallica. When asked whether the band was there with him while he was mixing the record, he responds with a laugh:
Haha! Isn't that hilarious? That will give you something to listen for this weekend! You no longer have to ask yourself, "where is the bass guitar?" You now have an answer. Turns out Cliff Burton wasn't there to defend himself! I highly recommend "Master Of Puppets" and Tape Op magazine if you're interested in recording (shout-out Dieter for turning me on to the mag).
What are you scared of?
I just finished up reading a book called "Million Dollar Habits" by Brian Tracy. The book is packed with valuable tips for self improvement. I want to share a tip that really opened my eyes:
I know that some of this self-help stuff can seem pretty cheesy but I promise that I won't judge you! :P
