    Looks awesome. Incredible amount of gear. No couch.
    That’s insane looking hippie space station, but nobody’s doing much hanging in there except JJP. (the guy in the photo) Kind of a tight squeeze, that’s a “walk in and check it and leave” scene. That doesn’t take away from the work, or the gear, just ergonomics that show you that room is not meant for anybody but the mixer.
