I started learning to mix with jog wheels, my ears and no sync. I also learnt to limit my use of the flanger FX. I’m not very good, but loving it.
Drank a lot, trained hard on the bike and am at my lowest weight for decades.
Work has been an utter cunt and continues to be to this very day. I would honestly welcome a cold hand dropping onto my shoulder and being asked to pop into a meeting room to be faced with my CEO, the HR director and a white A4 envelope with Private & Confidential and my name neatly typed on it.
