The Deer Paradox

Here are some curious facts. One: more white-tailed deer live in the United States today than at any other time in history. Two: fewer hunters are going after them than did even 20 years ago. And yet, three: deer hunting now rivals military combat in its technological sophistication. Outfitters’ shelves are crammed with advanced electronics, weaponry, chemicals, and camouflage, all designed to eliminate every last shred of chance from the pursuit. The average American hunter now spends nearly $2,500 a year on the sport, despite the fact that finding a deer to kill has literally never been easier.

"Hunters, on the other hand, are scarcer than they once were. After decades of decline, fewer than 14 million Americans are active hunters today. In 1991, about 1 in 13 adults hunted; today, just 1 in 18 do. Hunters are also getting older: their average age is about 46 and keeps inching up. Like the deer, they have spread far beyond their traditional habitat. More than half of hunting-license holders now live in suburbs and cities, where they face a new challenge: gaining access to hunting land."

Those of you tumblrmates who are, like me, in the music production business, might really dig this current deal from Steven Slate Digital… $180 gets you their VCC plus an iLok. I’m liking it so much I just got two more for my guys here at Burst HQ.
A really really juicy and kickass plug-in.

Yay! New toys!

newsweek:

Steve Jobs has resigned as CEO of Apple. In a letter to the board, he writes, “I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.” Above, we’ve pulled three Newsweek covers of the visionary Apple co-founder from over the years.

Oh shit

this NEVER ceases to amaze me

1994 : bought a 1 gigabyte external hard drive for my 2-channel Sound Tools rig (way before Pro Tools) for $1300.

2011 : bought a 1 terabyte external hard drive for Matt’s 256-channel Logic Pro rig for $80.

I mean, wha?!!!!

You didn’t get me a petabyte!?  How the fuck am I supposed to get anything DONE?
