You know you spend too much time in the studio when...

Post by Kevin Rothi » Thu Oct 08, 2009 1:50 am

I was moving an old coffee table across the room, and one of the legs fell off. My first thought was "ctrl - z".

OMG, I do that too, when I write something with a pen, when I have a mistake, instead of crossing it out, I sometimes look for a keyboard and hoping I could press Ctrl + Z.LOL

Oh yeah, and when playing videos on youtube, I sometimes click the play buttons of my MIDI controllers instead of clicking the mouse.LOL

That's why sometimes I like to do stuff manually so that I will not be spoiled by technologies, like I wipe floors with my hands and feet, than using a map...LOL And when heating food, I don't use the microwave. This could be an extra workout too you know...LOL

This is too funny, except, in my case, I'm never keen on key commands, so whenever I screw up something I find myself saying in my mind, "Edit - Undo" :lol:

This is a common occurrence with me in real life, i also expect an MSN/Skype type sound to go off whenever i meet up with a friend.

You know things are getting bad when you can see a cursor in real life. I had this problem for a while - after spending ages at the screen I would still see a black and white arrow floating around when I looked out the window. :)
