    ...like optics to a camera.
  7. I was going to say, 'like a condom to a Baptist Preacher...' but it's really more like the front door to your recording. Most people don't pay much attention to the door itself, some are better than others, they'll all get you in and your first impression of the place 1) is based in large part on the front door and 2) lasts a lot longer than you'd think. :eek:

    ...a very suitable gift. However, you might want to make sure that the brand and model is sufficiently gaudy, as the object in question is a very potent symbol - of engineering prowess...

    ...like a rifle to an infantryman.

    This is my microphone. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My microphone is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.

    My microphone without me is useless. Without my microphone, I am useless.

    My microphone is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weakness, its strength, its parts and its accessories. I will keep my microphone clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will...
