I forgot to tell you guys: I finally got my glasses!!! (Like two months ago?)
A Jambean is like a jellybean but with jam.
I’m that person you hate that starts getting excited about Christmas right after Halloween.
My first few checks from my first few days of extra work.
Seriously though, is there anything better?
Gosh you guys! I have been TERRIBLE over the past few weeks, have I not? I’m stealing a few minutes before bed tonight (well, when I should already be in bed, really) to update.
In short, here’s what I’ve been working on -
- I ended up being called in for…
OK so, here’s a thing I’ve learned having done a fair bit of musicianing on stage…maybe it’s one of those secrets that nobody wants to let the world know but…
So I was playing a show once and I was talking with the sound guy and I said, as a joke, “Deathly Hallows is my last song so, after that, I’ll just drop the mic and I’m done.”
And then he was like “Sure, just make sure to hold the mic up so I see you’re about to drop it and I’ll cut it.”
I was like “Dude, no, I would never mess with your equipment like that.” And he was all “Seriously, they’re designed to get dropped now, the only problem is if you drop it while it’s still on, it’ll make a godawful loud noise and maybe even mess up the speakers, so you have to hold it up so I see you’re about to drop it.”
So, when you see people hold the mic out and then just drop it, it looks like they’re all IDGAF but really they’re all “Hey, sound guy, please cut the mic so that these people don’t all die bleeding out of their ears.”
This is super important because lots of people don’t realize that it is okay to drop certain types of mics. If you see a musician do this there is like a 95% chance they’ve okayed it with sound. So don’t jump down their throats on Twitter. They’re professionals and know what they’re doing!
Before you drop a mic, remember to talk to your audio engineer first.
Also, I’m bringing this back because I want it to get 10,000 notes :-)
