I’m unable to resist these fascinating remarks by Beatles producer George Martin (a guy who once was young and hip):

Legendary BEATLES producer GEORGE MARTIN disapproves of modern technology because now anyone can make a record in the comfort of their own home.
Martin sealed his place in history by piecing together a string of classic albums including REVOLVER and SGT PEPPER’S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND – but he fears the advent of mp3 players will dumb down the music industry.
He says, “With iPods, mini-recorders and all the new technology, people can lie in their bath and make a rock record.”

Dumb down the music industry from the comfort of your bathtub?
And I was just getting used to the dumbing down of the media being blamed on bloggers who conduct bloodbaths in the comfort of their pajamas. . .
