That's pretty much the way I cut tracks on songs
too, except for the being drunk part. There is
the 'even the kitchen sink' version where it's
about adrenalin and serendipity, then there is
the "take out the bad bits and smooth out the
delivery' version that gets released.
It is possible and all too easy to record all of
the life out of a piece if one makes a third pass.
I have to wonder if that is the fate of XML.

IIRC, the ancient Persians supposedly made all important decisions twice,
once drunk and once sober. Presumably they got drunk so as to lower their
inhibitions about out-of-the-box solutions, and then waited till they were
sober to check if the supposed solution was actually sound.
