Really, any musician-speak makes me roll my eyes. Demos, laying tracks, jam sessions; I'm over it. But, the worst is the studio-related excuses a guy will rattle off to explain away his bad behavior. He didn't get my text because he was in the studio. He ran late to meet me for dinner because he was in the studio. He somehow forgot how technology and time works because he was--all together now--in the studio. Got it.
I know I hear the words, "I was late because I was in the studio," but he might as well be saying, "I was late because I got my Rollerblade stuck in a Segway" because both of them are the lamest excuses I've ever heard in my life.
Listen, I've been in a recording studio before. It's basically a smelly den with lots of comfy couches where everyone mopes around preoccupied with their cell phones. You're supposed to be dead silent when recording is in progress which gets old fast. And, there's a big board with buttons that you aren't allowed to touch. Whoop-de-freakin-do. No one even talks to each other until the pizza comes and then they go back to their spots on the couch, fiddling with their phones. Fuck the studio! Fuck anything with the word studio in it, even Studio by L'Oreal. Fuck it allllll.
