Into the Earhole: A Sound Guy’s Blog

I set up my own router at home last night. Not entirely sure how I did it, to be honest. It broke for a while, I changed some settings, then it worked. :man_shrugging: The only thing I dislike is that it’s about 3/5 the speed it should be vs the ISP’s router (wired).

Shooting in a ‘youtuber’ office this week. Can’t share most of it due to nda but here’s a fun one

Is that a propane bottle?
Does the bottle start icing up if you go full throttle with the flames?

I wish I could tell you. We had a guy use it a few times but only for 30 seconds or so. It was indoors, after all.

I’m here again today, and someone did a 20-30 second burn. No ice on the tank; I’ll get a closer look at the bottle when I can.

The only experience I have with icing is with 20# and 100# tanks. Then it was with extended use, like tens of minutes and summer time humidity. Its a neat looking gun and I bet fun to play with. I have a torch meant for roofing and use that occasionally for starting fires in my burn barrel. Its pretty loud when at full blast.

California again this week

Daylight was short so had to make the most of the shooting schedule (by 4:30pm it was nighttime), so no time for fun apart from dinner. Also not really much wacky cali stuff happened this time. :man_shrugging:

Today, I watched someone spend over $5k on shoes and a few t-shirts. I believe the most expensive one was a graphic tee for $900+. What a hustle.

Interviews today, run of the mill stuff, mostly…

One of the subjects is a disabled veteran, and is in an electric wheelchair. I went to mic her and needed a place behind her to stick a wireless transmitter; again, usual procedure, but I believe this is the first time I’ve attached it to a catheter.

Also, interesting coincidence- many of the people that have come in have mentioned organizations they have been a part of, and it so happens I’ve been on shoots for several of them. I have kind of a b-roll memory montage playing internally.

Something I didn’t mention before: in her interview, she said she just wanted to “soak up all life has to offer.” She is disabled because she was shot on-duty during a robbery. Now, years later, all she wants is to continue to live and experience all she can. Noteworthy, to say the least…

Nice.

Well, I’ll be damned. What are the odds this is true?
