Lunch Break

November 14, 2009

Just another reminder that I don’t pay very much attention to pop music. (That’s probably a good thing.) Totally oblivious to trends like the one explained in this video.

Lunch Break is NewsReal’s daily apolitical post. (We all need a break from this political stuff every now and then!) When commenting on Lunch Break posts do not start political, religious, or philosophical debates. In fact from now on any serious debating comments on Lunch Break posts will be deleted. You’ve got all of NewsReal’s other posts to get argumentative, lets keep this one pure. (Humorous debates about meaningless subjects are permitted.)

If you would like to submit a video (humorous/music/film trailer/intriguing/etc.), image, or poem for this feature then please email it to DavidSwindle {@} (Sunday Lunch Breaks are often of a spiritual nature.) Please do not send attached videos, rather provide links to where the videos are available online at places like YouTube. Please include:

1. A link to where it’s from.

2. Any Comments you would like published with your submission

3. A link to your blog or homepage if you have one.

4. How you’d like your name published.

Also please keep it no more than PG-13 rated.

    This is more about audio technology than it is about pop music. Record producers have been processing sound since the 50’s when Sun Records perfected the “slap-back” echo effect that was so prevalent in those days. Auto Tune is just the latest in the evolutionary line of recording techniques. Ask your kid about it the next time you need him to fix your computer.

    Watching that made my day.

    Wow! I’m getting updated. Yay! Thank you. What fun.

    I used to have my son telling me the latest craze/ words, etc., but the other days he informed me that is is old now. He’s 46. I think he’s still pretty hip. He’s my boy after all.

    If every lunch break I have turns out to be as boring as watching that I’ll simply work through until the end of every shift.

    another good reason to ignore the field of current popular “music”.

    Went to a bar with live music on Saturday night. The band played so loudly that the singer could not be heard. Audience clapped loudly afterward.

    Question: why does the singer sing if nobody can hear him?

    I still liked it and learned from it. Probably a big difference in generations here. Not bored at all but admiring the creativity, even unto copying!! and repeating even more. Clever.
