...you've ever frozen contact mics or hydrophones
...you plan an extra couple of hours into your road trip's drive time for amb recording
...your wife is ok with that.
...you'd bring the dog, except that you know she'll make noise
...you agonize for weeks over a mic purchase
...you build stuff to hide mics and recorders in
...you've spent weekends just driving out into the countryside looking for stuff to record
...the sound of thunder triggers a fast twitch mic setup response
...you imagine how that thing you're hearing right now would look in izotope
...you've ever hidden mics in your ears
...you've ever had a cop ask you to pick up your gear and leave
...your non-audio significant other can spot a 57 on TV a mile away
...you go antiquing to look for cool sounding props
...you imagine the sound of the destruction of the furniture left outside that guy's house up the street
...screw it, you go and get that furniture and break it.
...you never oil the hinges in your doors
