    Out of Curiosity

    If you are only using them as uplights, I'd use "A". As for color, it's true that a black one would blend in better... but that also means it would be easier for someone to trip over.

    Just me, but if the garage only had room for one vehicle.... I would use it to safeguard the vehicle that's filled with thousands of dollars in gear. As for security, the only thing you can do is buy extra locks. Not just for the trailer door, but for the hitch, the lever that locks the hitch...

    Noticing a very interesting trend

    You are correct, Bob. But the decrease in Top-40 radio has very little do with the quality of the music. These days, the 20-something age group doesn't have "extra" money to throw around... so they are fast becoming a demographic that isn't worth trying to attract with advertising. When I...

    Like Tunes....I loaded gear in an out of my vehicle for every gig. (it was my daily driver) Have not looked back since I got my trailer. For me, I just like know that...as long as I have the trailer, I know I have everything I need (and more). Fortunately, I have a dead-end alley behind my...

    I had a client that was mostly sold on booking me (thru the multi op) BUT wanted to meet me first. They had already scheduled an appointment at the venue to go over some details, so I agreed to meet them there at the same time. I had already played there, so I didn't need to see it. But it...

    Wireless mics

    Consumer Reports and survey companies like them... are just like the Arbitron Radio Ratings. Everybody can find something good in the results to brag about. In other words, you can cherry pick the info that suits your agenda.

    Just found out about a wedding on Thursday June 25th, 2020.

    I'm guessing you never were married... and evidently...you haven't DJed weddings much...or at all! Not so long ago...the parents would chip in and pay for it all! You know what? Those moms and dads took out loans to pay for it. These days, the parents are just as bad off as the kids... so the...

    Do you post awards in your footer?

    That's the downfall of being a copywriter.... It takes me a paragraph and a half... to make a point that normal people can make in one sentence.

    Sushi DMX - Light rider

    Thanks "Burgh".... I searched for LightRider videos and watched tons of them.... but none of the ones I found dealt with starting from scratch. I will have to try this when I get home

    Do you post awards in your footer?

    Yes! AND PUTTING THEM ON THE BOTTOM OF AN EMAIL IS NOT OVER-EMPHASIZING!

    Do you post awards in your footer?

    YES! And if the awards are authentic....(aka you actually DID win them).... they will not affect you negatively. It's only YOU who are saying they have "no positive value". And you are in the business, and not a client looking to book a DJ.

    Do you post awards in your footer?

    There is a HUGE difference between a personal email to a potential client.... and a prestigious bridal publication. Just because a client may "fully understand" the whole award thing... (and I am NOT convinced that most of them DO understand...or care) doesn't mean they will hold it against you...

    Sushi DMX - Light rider

    Latest update. Got the Sushi and an adapter and plugged everything in... but having problems with LightRider finding my fixture(s). Is there another bit of software I need for LightRider to connect to fixtures? Also, it asked me to create an account. Do you need an account to use it, and does...

    Do you post awards in your footer?

    Are YOU sure about that? Or, are you just looking to be contradictory? (again) Seems like you're really stretching your idea, to make it fit your side of the conversation. If you're a potential client looking to hire someone... what matters most is what you read in the body of the email. If...

    Need a favor this morning

    There MAY be an issue with copy write laws. If the broadcast has commercials, the station may not be able to record it for you. Also, most sports broadcasts have the "without express written permission" clause. But, considering the reason for the request, it is possible.

    Do you post awards in your footer?

    True, Bob. But they won't chase clients away, either.

    What do you think about this facade?

    Waste. Of. Money.

    Generators - again

    I too, would rent one when needed. I love the quiet little Hondas, and rented one for a gig at a local park. Didn't run out of gas, even after running most of the day. Remember, if you're going to OWN one, you need to be familiar with up-keep. If you're thinking about renting it out, you have...

    I bought a few items to use at events in the future.

    In some cases, the business wouldn't THAT BIG of a loss :laugh::laugh:

    Don't listen to Jeff.... he's a radical. Before you know it, you'll be telling me he uses CONTRACTS!
