Nice post Norm, and after watching numerous home improvement shows, I'm inclined to agree.

Though when it comes to displaying symptoms of mental illness, I don't think too many artists can throw stones. When it comes to materials, I'm a boarderline hoarder, and Pres talks to his pots. That's just the tip of the iceburg too.

No, but I may start.

Of, course, if cursing at them counts as talking, then I guess I already do.

I would say something like "Hello in there, anybody home". The studio would bust up! Truth is there is a different sound from differently thrown pots. When mine did not sound right, it was time for more volume. Of course at times you can hear the pot talk back to you from the vibrations of the drive, and the bearing sounds can be magnified. Then again too, maybe it is just the imagination of a guy who over the years became hard of hearing and had to get hearing aids to hear the wind, or the talking of pots.

Yes talking to pots is normal, so you're the one Benzine! Though cursing them is a  healthy start.

Getting answers from them, haven't waited long enough, but as Pres noticed they some times sing on the wheel
