Starting from a young age, quite a few of us were taught the importance of blending in. Of not rocking the boat. Of not sticking our necks out.
As we grew older, many of us took those lessons to heart. We blended in. We didn’t rock the boat. We didn’t stick our necks out.
I have been in this business so long, I remember when radio spots were recorded to 8-track analog-tape machines. I remember dubs being hand delivered to clients on audio cassettes. I remember the meaning of the word “keylining.” Care to cut me open and count the rings inside?
