Well, that was a few days between blags, but it was going to be a bit. Doing a bit of stuff.
But I vowed upon my oath of vengeance that I would keep up. and so I shall.
Please ignore the inconsistencies of my writing... nah, roast me for it.
Work, writing. LT an I played some Arkham LCG, we did an interesting thing. It was a deck build using Ythian Observers. We tried to get them through Return to the Night of the Zealot. We made it to the second scenario before I died out. I pulled 3 really bad treacheries :(
Let's see, the Thursday show, the opening show... went awful. It was worse than the previous night. The conductor came up and asked if I "adjusted any settings on the board", 'cause it was "working perfectly during the preview" that morning. I don't think she understood how sound works. She also asked if I could do anything to turn up some of the actors. I know what I'm doing, and I know when the sound's messed up, and I know when someone gives me a mic check that fails to even slightly resemble their actual performance. UGH.
LT and I played Keyforge (work, etc. first).
For the second show, it was a little better, but it was still really rough. The conductor sent a random teacher to WATCH me do sound. I don't know what they expected.
I went out for the morning show at 1230. The roads were pretty rough, but I drove nice and slow. The show went fine. But apparently they received an e-mail complaining about the sound. The director stood by the sound booth this time... He doesn't give af about it, so he's fine back there. I think he's at least smart enough to realize that the job is difficult even with decent equipment, let alone this really crappy stuff. Oh, and some mom complained that the person putting mics on the girls was a guy. They didn't seem to mind that I put mics on the boys, but girls... no way. So the stage manager had even more work. I was glad to be done with this mess. I don't think I'll ever do that show again. Heck, I don't even really wanna do sound stuff. This is why I stopped doing sound things, I like doing a good job. If I don't do a good job, I hate it. Especially when I get flak from people that don't know what they're talking about. There were ways to approach me in which I would have been fine, but instead, they talked to me like I was stupid and talked behind my back, those people were awful :/

But it's over, so I spent the rest of the day relaxing with Teh Cute Girlfriend! Waiting out the snow storm :)
