How Beat Detective and Autotune killed music

Fascinating stuff. I knew they abused Autotune, but I didn't know they just edited songs like that. I thought the musicians just played it over and over again until they got it ;D I remember playing around with Fruity Loops at my friends house, it looked a lot like Pro Tools.

That shouldn't be the case for anything on a classical label. There you can still get actual performances, only lightly edited.

Do they mention the drummer from Devo in that clip? He was amazing, but when drum machines came along...I think he became an electrician.
Can I steam my face mask occasionally instead of washing it?
Ans.: Not really. Only steam things for which washing is not an option.

HAH, that was good.

I'm always pretty impressed with people who can translate on the fly. If you've ever worked with an interpreter, you'll know you usually do it in one of two ways. One way, which is worse, you tell the interpreter to tell them something. The second, you say something to the person, and the interpreter translates in real time, so you and the person are looking and talking to each other. The second way is obviously more difficult, and it looks like it's what's being done by the signers you see.

My cousin was a local translator signer* for Obama during his campaign. Don’t throw tomatoes, everybody. O0
EDIT: as in sign language, hand signing.

Well, ASL is a language. Heck, I think it's worthwhile to learn a bit of ASL anyways. The Army teaches some basic sign language as a matter of course. It would come in handy in noisy or windy places like concerts or noisy workplaces. Or even in quiet workplaces like a cubicle farm where you don't want to yell across the room.

Someone should go back over the footage and see if she's blinking out a message in Morse code as well.
