Is there a Democratic Governors Debate next, and if so, when is it?

I find it interesting that people say that one sounds warmer than the other.  They sound exactly the same.  Audio is so subjective, people have their own "ghost" perceptions sometimes and fall prey to marketing strategies.  If anything, the value of the cable is in the build quality and lack of ground hum, not tone or richness.  It's strange how the brain works that way to pick out perceived sound differences where there is none - we're pre-wired to expect the more expensive cable to "sound" better when really there is no functional difference.  I've had moments where I'm mixing for a band and the lead vocalist tells me to turn up the front stage monitor.  I already know it is running hot and that it's more likely a perception issue, so I nodded to acknowledge, but actually turned the volume down instead of up, which caused the band to play quieter so as not to overwhelm the acoustic space.  A few moments later, she said it is too loud now and to turn it down.  :P

Story

The Story First
Introduction
I am a scientist, engineer, and thinker. Language is a puzzle of both logic and art, and writing is a passion of mine - there will always be new things to learn - and my attitude is to never stop learning. I can be found deep into thousands of lines of text or code, and enjoy creative fiction and history. I own my own business and work as an independent contractor building web applications, and work heavily with cmiVFX.com, an online school that produces video training for the visual effects industry. I also love music, especially recording, room acoustics, acoustic guitar, and working with audio gear. I operate mixing consoles and setup and run sound equipment and recording software. Anything that is creative and challenging, I enjoy. I love movies, video games, biking. I help to plan, build, and act in theatre, usually helping with the technology, such as building and setting up animated props, lighting, sound effects, and set designs.
