imageI try to stay away from idioms and other bits of faux-wisdom but one that actually stuck with me from recording/songwriting circles is “you can’t polish a turd”. 

Which I always took to mean “if your song isn’t any good, no amount of production or recording wizardy will make it good”.

So episode 19 of season 6 of the Mythbusters is awesome: they polished some animal shit. Which may forever alter my songwriting process. Kudos.

Wait till you have babies, that’s how their poop comes out looking.

That’s a turd? It looks like a stone!

I want to see someone poke it, see it squish…

Not only did they polish that turd, but they did it with their bare hands and water, which makes it so much more cool.
