Two Turntables and a Microphone

So I saw some article somewhere about this place called DubSpot, and was thinking it would be really fun to learn to mix records/DJ/whatever. It's not all that expensive if it actually delivers all it promises, and could be lucrative if one became proficient. Anyone have experience with a place like this?


On another note, a techie friend of mine has (perhaps jokingly?) decided to weather the economic crisis by moving out of the city and learning to shear sheep. Apparently there's dire need for good sheep shearers. Another techie friend of mine has been laid off. Far more of my techie friends are finding themselves desperate for freelance work, and some are collecting unemployment. What are YOUR plans to get through the Great Depression '09?

Light Boards

Hey all you readers out there! I need some advice on what type of lightboard to try for in our grant package at the theatre. I was wanting an Ion, but just heard some talk that it might not be so great. I would love an Obsession for its easy scroller and VL programming, but what boards do YOU love and why?

More Laughable College Theatre Ads

CSB School of Design and Arts:

School of Theatre at Illinois State University:

Captain Obvious quote: "What we're trying to do is the best theatre that we can"
I really enjoy the shot of the perfectly manicured hand sliding up a sound fader.

Technical theatre is actually a fairly interesting job. While I may not always enjoy work, I can honestly say that I am never bored (okay, maybe DURING a show, but...). How all of these ads make the profession sound horribly mundane is beyond me.

About Me

My photo
New York, New York, United States
Tired. Caffeinated. Quietly evil.

I'm a theatre technician, living and working in NYC. Also an aspiring costumer, makeup artist, playwright and dilettante.
I like to rant about things, I swear like a person who swears a lot, and I work too much. Other than that, my time is spent at home with the puppy or in Chelsea bars with friends and co-workers.
