Zoolander and his mullet want to mix your record!
« on: March 21, 2005, 05:45:09 pm »

OK, so I obviously don't care who I piss off, but I just can't be phony.  It's not like Jack doesn't know me or know who I am.  But hey, if somebody is a dick and overrated, I'm the first to say so.  If you're a nice guy however, and overrated, I'll usually let it slide.  But this is just begging for it, IMHO:

"5 things that will destroy your mix"

when two of them are right on the cover:

Comparing preamps

and "making magic" with plug ins

come to think of it, there may be a subtle third "thing" on the cover.

He may be a tool (or atleast look like one), but its actually a decent article.

I think he looks more like the prince in "Robin Hoood-Prince of theives" than Zoolander. Shocked

Right, he looks like Alan Rickman, but the pose is pure Zoolander.  He does that same pose in every picture.

On the bright side... at least it wasn't the Lord Pond Scum Bros... Jack may be "over rated" [aren't most of us?]... but from what I've heard he does way less damage than those Alge boys.

Frankly... I'd take the scraps either camp throws to the side...

Perhaps the expression is a smug "I have regular work at this shit" exression?

Fletcher, as much as the Alge's mutate somebody's tracks, I have to say that their mixes have usually sounded better and clearer to me than JJP's.  Their stuff may be overly bright and overly compressed, but one of my complaints with JJP is that his mixes tend to be too busy, too crowded and it seems like he only listened to each instrument on its own while EQing and compressing, and then threw all the faders up disregarding what steps on what. But that is just how I hear it.  

On a side note, I just learned that he mixed a record that I had bought a year ago, and I was playing it in the car and my wife made me turn it off because there was some noise in the mix that was really annoying the fuck out of her.  She's never asked me to stop playing anything other than Yes before.  (She just can't do prog.)

I appreciate the humor at discussing
JJP's Zoolander - Black Shoe polish beard look .....
it has miffed me for years ..the "I take myself way too serious" look
but as art goes it is all subjective
he actually get's a chance to work on lot of shit I myself would love to touch and for whatever reason, keeps working which is admirable. We all can be a bit like throwing stones when we live in a glass house
I have to say it starts a discourse that is not very productive when dissing ones competition in public
I think in one forum there was a discourse about this
It is the kind of thing that might be better left for a private conversation
but since it was raised, once again, he looks abso fuckinlutely ridiculous on that cover ....

JellyFish's Bellybutton is one of my all time favorite mixes. It's a little noisy while at the same time not being mastered very hot, but it's just beautiful to listen to.
