174/365 - sound guy for the day
i filled in to run sound for an event of lots of community theatre groups coming in an performing various things. many of you will realize how painful that can be. but i made it... double points because i do lights not sound, but my limited knowledge was enough to mix for the day.
a big gripe lots of techs (esp sound guys) have is how bold the audience can be with regards to walking up to you can telling you how they think they can do your job better. any schmuck who has a home stereo thinks they have the knowhow to direct how the EQ on the piano should sound, or how the bass needs more volume. and of course the occaional "the light is in my eyes" or can you turn the air conditioning down from here?" to which i usually find an unused fader on the soundboard, move it up or down, and wait for the thumbs up from the patron. ::shakes head::
