"Nežinau nė vienos (dabartinės) Lietuvos grupės, kurios tekstai būtų svarbūs" - Domininkas Kunčinas reflektuoja jauną kartą, bet kartu sako, kad ji yra daug laisvesnė. Ir kad jis turi daugiau jaunesnių draugų, nei vyresnių.

"But to demand that a work be “relatable” expresses a different expectation: that the work itself be somehow accommodating to, or reflective of, the experience of the reader or viewer. The reader or viewer remains passive in the face of the book or movie or play: she expects the work to be done for her. If the concept of identification suggested that an individual experiences a work as a mirror in which he might recognize himself, the notion of relatability implies that the work in question serves like a selfie: a flattering confirmation of an individual’s solipsism."

"A paradox has entered our political discourse: The more controlled and artificial and technological we make the world, the more capable of wild and powerful fancy it becomes. Like Facebook protests, taco delivering drones, antibiotics, graffiti stenciling robots, comicons, carbon-fiber space elevators and custom over-night stickers, reconciliation between control and imagination was beyond imagining in 1921. Now, like Google self-driving cars and Amazon drone deliveries, we only have to wonder how much we want it."

". First you set a level for a mastered CD in the style you like to work in to hit the magic 0 to 6 spot on the SPL meter. Memorise that volume knob position. Then play one of your unmastered mixes and set a position for that. It should be quite a bit higher because your mix is not (yet) limited to within an inch of its life like the mastered CD is. Now you have to reproducible mixing positions: one for mixing and one for listening to mastered CDs with the benefit that both will now play at the same SPL level. Only then can you really start comparing your work with the work of others without fooling yourself."
"I often hear: ‘hey man, can you compress the hell out of the bass to make it fat?’ To which I usually answer ‘Do you want it compressed or do you want it fat?’"
"a nasal and congested vocal sound is the by-product of too much 1 kHz."
"4) The clip. We use a Shure SM58 clip because the Audix clip is too rubbery. It’s the older version clip that is not flared up top. It requires the mic to be slid – not popped – into place, and the mic won’t jump out when the stand is swung or bounced. Also, we heat up new clips with a lighter and bend them open so they get the proper grip on the mic – not too tight or loose."
"Increase 2.9k or 3.5kHz by a couple of dB on either the High-Mid or High frequency equalizer of the vocal channel. Generally speaking, raising 1kHz on a vocal gives it more energy in any mix, but in a live situation in a reverberant environment, moving the frequency up can help it cut through the mud. You could even try this on the FOH EQ to see if it helps the entire mix."
