Okay, here's the deal: I have a platinum record. And a gold one. I'm, like, quasi-famous and stuff. So I think, because I'm even more quasi-famous than most of the people that endorse products (and thus get them for free) I should be getting more free shit. I may not have sold more records than BT, but I sure have put out a fuck of a lot more, and being prolific has to count for something, right?

The problem with the above equation is (a) I hate to ask for free shit, and (b) I'm a world-class gear snob. Most of the shit you can get for free is, well, shit, when you get down to it. What would be really nice is if a company like Wunder Audio decided that they wanted a quasi-celebrity spokesman, and that I was just the musician they had in mind, and then they sent me, say, one of their spankin' new Wunder Recording Consoles. If that little stinker isn't just a thing of beauty, I don't know what the hell is. Ten inputs, based around their luverly PEQ-1 channel strip. This isn't a summing buss, but rather an actual recording console in mini-me form, along the lines of the Neve Kelso or Melbourne. No price on the website, but seeing how a single PEQ-1 cartridge goes for over $2,000, we're talking at least $20K for this bad boy.

Shit, I'd endorse child slavery for that. Seriously, Wunder. I'll say very nice things about you every day. Think about it.

I think you should be the official face of Behringer. You could be in their posters, and demo their stuff at NAMM, wearing a Behringer T-shirt. You would often be photographed standing next to Uli Behringer. Often, you'd be hugging. Perhaps he'd come in to do some kind of guest vocals on one of your recordings. This blog could become Analog Industries In Association with The Behringer Tube Ultragain MIC100.

I have a platinum record, too. Granted, it was given to me for plugging a band on the front cover of a magazine, but still...

ps: Your google ads strip is now full of ads for Plywood Importers... I hate it when that happens.

Ever look at the Behringer BoD pictures? It looks like Die Hard villians. Seriously...
