One thing I often notice when driving with people listening to the radio, and also occurs to me, is that lotta guys just can't stand listening to the commercials to the end. They just weave to other station wich is playing music, and so on. Same with TV. The ad breaks come with extremely high volume. I know, maybe they want to draw your attention and keep some interest on, but whaf if the ad breaks are getting longer and longer? Is it a true statement, to tell one that in a sequence of commercials, the last of them will get paid less atention than the first? What is the broadcasting process? Is it some kind of compressor/limiter they throw all of their broadcastd material on? It reminds me about dad when we were in vacations, some 3 hours long trip and he just got irritated with an Iron Maiden CD I threw often into the player LMAO. Older people are used to a more dynamic, less compressed to death, not so loud sound than we were used, than our children will get used, etc... Maybe that explains a little about why does old people don't buy in the new stuff. For them, something just doesn't sound right. Just my imagination or TVChannels like Cartoon Network are compressed to hell more than others too? It's all screams, explosions, mad laughs, I just can't watch it so much, I start getting irritated...I feel like ageing...Not about the grade but I think 'it means our children are getting used to extremely loud stuff right when they are developing their little brains'... It pisses me off how kids in general speak so loud. I'm no phonoaudiologist, but I tend to think there's a relation with that overhyped stimulation they receive.
