Hi I'm Seath,submitted by seathartorias to mrballen [link] [comments]
This is my story that has started from 1992 and still continues to this day.
My story starts in 92 our family had just been relocated to the Mohave Desert from my dad being transferred by his job to work across the Colorado river in Laughlin NV . We rented a house on the AZ side of the river due to it being cheaper then the NV side. From what I do remember we rented from a Native american who went by his CB radio name Dakota I do not remember his real name. CB radio was the 90s Voice chat for people living out in the middle of nowhere. Anyways when we were moving in we could see the river at the end of the road of the street we lived on, he warned us the river is very dangerous at night and if you hear anything unusual just go inside and lock the door. My mother asked like what party drunk people? He shook his head no, He told us don't take it the wrong way but alot of people die at the river at night thinking they see people downing or screaming for help and nothing is there and the fast pace of the river takes them away and do not have a chance to escape its rapids. If you hear someone calling for help just call the police do not investigate , it may not be what it seems.
He just turned and looked at the river then at the ground and let out a sigh, then he said there are thing that walk this earth that cannot be explained and sometimes its best to leave them be. I just stood there being only 9 not knowing what he was talking about and my dad just said ok. We lived in the house for about a year nothing out of the ordinary had happened work, school, church dinner repeat until one Sunday night after church. My dad and I were sitting in the garage with the door open just watching the river and the stars we basically had no light pollution and there was supposed to be a meteor shower, it was about 9:30pm my dad told me to get inside and get ready for bed for school tomorrow. As was about to stand up we heard what sounded like crying coming from the direction of the river and asking for help but it didnt sound right at all. It was like trying to talk with out your tongue and like you had water in your throat, we looked back and forth trying to pinpoint where it was coming from. Then you could see a woman walking out of the river trees / brush. As she walked it sent chills down your spine it was staggered but like it was walking on 2 feet for the first time.
We just watched it walk across the field to the road that connected to our house, my dad stood up and took a step forward and the woman stopped instantly. She tilted her head and slowly looked at us, she was pale covered in mud, brush and water. Her head kept tilting unnatural it looked like it should have snapped but it didn't, we both froze her eyes were a reflective silver as her head bobbed from the tilting it reflected like animal eyes would. After what felt like an hour even though it was only a few seconds it fell face forward with force you heard the body hit the ground "SMACK" and dust flew up. At this point I stood up trying to see where it was, then it just screamed not just from the throat but from the depth of its chest high and low pitches roared and echoed across the desert. My dad pushed me back into the garage getting ready to close it then it popped back up and it was on all fours still with its head tilted and start running at us at full speed. My dad shoved me in and slammed the door shut and locked the inside bolts to prevent it from opening, soon as that latch lock "BAM" it hit the garage.
Screaming and scratching continuously at the door yelling "HELP" and "LET ME IN" then it stopped our hearts pounding then you could hear it sniffing the crack of where the door meets the driveway and see its shadow moving back and forth saying "I HAVE YOUR SCENT" then the shadow was moving to where the front door is, at this point my Mom open the garage door that connect to the inside of the house looking at us like WTF are you making all this noise. She saw us on the floor scared to death and instantly my dad bolted up and ran past her to the front door to check it, the front of our house was on the corner of the street covered my large windows easily could be broken. The door was already locked and he looked out the windows nothing was there it was bright from the street lights and no sign of the monster.
We told my mother what happened she really didn't question it, she heard the screams and banging. The next morning Dakota came out we told him happened, walked the property not saying anything stopped at the garage door looked at the dents and scratch marks then he turned and looked at field and river. He looked over the field and river walking back n forth from our property but not taking one step further toward the river or the field, he panned looking up and down the dirt then stopped he pointed at the dirt said "There". We all looked down and it was track marks coming from the field to our street there were only tracks on the dirt and nothing on the street it must have cleared the street when it rammed our garage door. We went to go look at the tracks Dakota put his hand up and shook his head "don't touch it" he said it would be wise for us to move because it would be back and he needs to cleanse the house and recommended we do so ourselves. He knew a friend in the next city further away and would talk to him to see what he had available to be quick as possible. My parents didn't question it while Dakota took care of that my dad took a new job in the city further away as a police photographer.
I would like to say things were better after the move but they were not, this house was haunted to put it in simple terms. We lived in the house for 2 years, not a lot happened at once small things at first the tv would turn on by its self, after we would leave the curtains would all be pulled shut making the house extremely dark. The house had a fence around the entire property including the house so no one could just walk up to the house my mother had to locks on all the gate, we would constantly see dark shadows walking by the window or crunching from leaves. The shower would constantly turn on the plug would be put it trying to flood the bathroom, towel racks would be pulled out from the wall, and foot steps walking up and down the hall like on hardwood floor even though everything was carpet except the kitchen. But the worst of all was this wooden shed outside it was small just big enough for tools and the ground dirt was so hard it was like concrete no shelves windows nothing bare. This shed constantly sounded like someone coming in and out slamming the door neighbors would call the police and complain, and the officers would joke at my dad and say what is your house haunted or something so we drilled latch and bolted and locked it shut.
We just got use to it and were just waiting for our lease to be up and then we were going to move back to Vegas at the end of the year. So its Christmas eve the last year of our lease, we were getting ready for midnight mass we were at the front door getting our coats when all the lights started going in and out like in a thunderstorm messing with the power but it was a clear night just freezing about 15F. My parents kept our jeep outside the fence under the street light it was just easier then opening the garage door and the gates every time to leave, something caught my mothers attention to the jeep even with the lights flickering. There was something crouched behind the jeep with its hands on the hood looking around the corner of the vehicle, she told me as soon as its eyes reflected silver she knew what it was from what we told She said under her breath "What the hell is that?" as I looked out and saw it we made eye contact it stood up from behind the jeep like it was waiting for me to see it.
As it stood even though it was under the street light it was like it was absorbing the light making more shadows, but you could tell it was the body of a woman/ish the body was a woman with matted fur across its chest pale arms legs inverted legs and hooved feet and a decaying deear skull on her face no antlers just matted hair and pulled flesh. At this moment we were looking at the monster again all the doors in the house slammed shut and a deep demonic gritted voiced yelled get out as this moment before we could react to the house the monster was walking to the front door as everything around was getting darker with each step. My mom grabbed my sister and yelled at my dad to follow, we went back into my sisters room where it had a phone and no windows, we called the police and just said someone was trying to break in because who would believe hey a monster is trying to break in and the house is yelling at us.
Since my dad already worked with the police a few of the officers had spare keys to feed the animals when we left town to visit relatives and such. This next part is from there perspective 4 officers showed up they unlocked the gates and doors, 2 in the house and 2 walking the perimeter. inside all the light were out and occasional flicker making a pop sound blow out the bulb, they said it felt like they were constantly being watched and heard foot steps leading to the garage but found nothing. The two officers were outside and it said it was eerily quite the frozen ground crunching with each step when one of the officers pointed at one of our trees a dark shadow was in the tree and they when they shinned there flash light at it all they saw was reflective eyes. Before they could say anything it jumped out of the tree and bolted for the shed ripping the door open and slamming it shut. from the inside you could hear "What the hell" *Boom heavy running then SLAM* The officer called for the 2 inside you could hear the police yelling at the shed we have you surrounded come out, each time they called out for them to come out the wall banged louder each time you could hear the wood cracking and echoing in the cold air.
When the officers yelled we are coming in we are armed, come out with your hands up, then one last "BANG" then silence they opened the door nothing was there just the smell of rot like something died in there. it was empty no lights nowhere to go it is just a small shed and frozen earth. Clearly they were spooked but it unexplained I remember one of the officers saying this is some X-files shit right here, It was just filed as wild life disturbance not a break in. For the rest of the lease we just stayed at a hotel and when the time came we just took what we needed and left the rest.
This is the house and it is for sale again, for some reason before I decided to write this I looked it up and its been for sell a long time. what still scary its bright as hell and the rooms are still very dark and the towel racks are still ripped out
After we moved back to Vegas my mother was obsessed with the paranormal she wrote letters called priests to anyone who would giver her the time of day to trying to find a way to protect us, we got more crosses, holy water, rosary's on all door handles dream catchers in every bedroom and she got some blessed salt , and salt rocks put on all entrances and windows, she also put curtains on all the mirrors reading info it could be used as portal. A bit over kill you might say but the truth of the matter after seeing that twice i was game and it became normal, and nothing happened for years until 2003 7 years later.
In this time my mothers health was greatly fading and could not take the heat with constant migraines that followed, so we moved to Douglas county much cooler and close to the mountains. At this point Im working my sister stayed in Vegas starting her life, I could have done the same but with what my mother was going through I didn't want to leave her to deal with this. As time went on she began walking around the house at all hours of the night arguing with shadows in the corner and yelling leave me alone. I couldn't see it but with her health dropping the paranormal activity started up again as it is was her spirit and will was keeping us safe and now with her health failing the locks were broken and they walked in the door. I never saw to much because I worked graveyard and slept in the daytime and nothing very strange happened in the morning would see shadows or something in the corner of your eye but that's about it. After some time my mother passed from a Arianism this was her 2nd one she survived the first one, after the funeral and all the family left the activity exploded.
one morning I was sleeping after I have gotten off work my dad and I worked apposing schedules and rarely saw one another, I was sleeping and I heard my closet door I tried to open get up I couldn't move I was locked down I couldn't even open my eyes. I could hear foot step walking up to my bed but they were long steps not short like moving left to right as if it was creeping up. I felt to pressures put at the foot of my bed first right at my feet then I could feel it creep up on my bed walking over me. The air turned humid it was thick it smelled like a drain that has not been cleaned and the bacteria has built up in the drain I work in food my whole life and we have drain socks to catch all the debrie from going down and when those don't get changed out they smell awful and that's what it smelled like or what my brain connected to. As is crawled up to my face I still could not move i was stuck and I;am thinking this is it I'am going to be eaten Im screwed, with each pull forward I could feel what im guessing is its hair on my face and warm/cold moist feeling up to my face then it spoke. The same voice I have heard before years ago back in that garage gurgles no tongue " I Found You" my heart sank I was scared before now and deathly scared if I could piss myself I probably would have.
I pulled deep with in myself and ripped myself up flying out of bed my arms and legs going in every direction hitting my computer chair that was next to my bed and kicking my desk. Nothing was in front of my or my bed I looked around the rooms and my closet door was still open but just a crack directed at my bed as if it has been watching me fling around. I left the apartment when to the hardware store got some chain and locked my closed shut and a board and nailed it across the door I didn't care about my deposit or wanting to experience that again. after that nothing happened again not even shadows like poof it was gone all of it but constantly felt like something was watching me from somewhere and I couldn't explain it, the only place I felt safe was work and I worked at a casino lights and hundreds of people I worked as much over time took other people shifts or sat in the bars after work I didn't want to go home. Eventually our lease was up and we moved into a new apt closer to our jobs and across town and a 2nd story facing the street with lots of light.
Once again nothing happened the apt was nicely lit the sun came in the windows every morning and the streetlight kept it lit after dark it made me happy and safe. Then its about another year and half goes by this is the last few months I will be living with my dad we never see each other and just dont talk that much after my mother passes I felt it was time to move on because nothing happens to him just me. So he went out of town for a month vacation and I was going to pack that month and move out when he got back. I took a vacation as well because you will laugh at this time World of Warcraft Burning crusade was launching and my friends wanted me to start a Blood elf and play a paladin for the guild since I already had experience playing it on alliance. I did we pulled all dayer because i worked grave yard daytime was my night time. I was tired it was about 11pm I havent at night in years now so I didnt even think about anything or my haunting past I hit the pillow i was out.
I woke up hearing someone in my kitchen I look at the clock its 1am I put my head down thinking my dad was just making a late snack that he did alot, Then I snap up he is out of town I press my ear up to my door I hear foot steps outside my door away to where the kitchen is. I could hear clicking "tick tick tick tick tick" Im like what the hell is that? Then it dawns on me, it is the gas stove and the fire has not been lit. I hear a door open close to me and close. Im confused the only door near my left side where the sound came from was the Linen closet. I bolt out into the kitchen all the gas is on no flame i turn it all off turn on the stove fan open the front door to get air flowing again the I heard a rustle in the linen closet and almost a giggle like someone laughing. I turned and looked at it, at this point i wasent afraid I didnt care what was in there I put my hand on the door handle and ripped the door open nothing just cramped racks of towels no one could hide there not even a child or a cat.
I let it air out then I left went to walmart and bought new door handles and locked all the doors shut if they were not in use and moved my computer desk in front of my closet door so it could not be opened. I never used it i mostly worked and just my winter coat and thing for the move. now its about 4 am Im still tired but feel safe enough to sleep I tapped the gas knobs, I lay down and with little effort I fall back asleep. The again I wake up to a "BOOM" and shaking I bolt up and everything is pitch black expect a emergency light blinking on and off from the outside I look around everything is dark, then I stop I could hear breathing behind me I already knew what it was the sound was the same. My bed is right along the wall on the window so I could open and get air when needed so I wouldn't have to blast the air conditioner. I turn my eyes first I could see a shadow in my window, unlike my first encounter I was not frozen I was incontroll I slowly turned my head and it was there the Deer Woman she was standing in the window seal two hooved feet on the wood one arm holding on the frame. The window was still open from the gas and I wanted to make sure the apt was vented. At that moment we locked eyes she tilted her head again as she did before it felt like a eternity this time i could clearly see everything.
But this time she changed again the first time walking corpse, 2nd time decaying deer monster, 3rd time humid and moist. Now the forth time still a Deer skull but it was clean white endless darkness in the eye sockets no skull or eyes inside just darkness a void of all life and light, her hair was no longer matter just long and black/brown fur covers her chest like a fur shawl from the 50s and it was black as the eye sockets and the same fur hooved legs. What felt like a life time she reached at my face Im assuming to grab me, I flung out of bed slammed against the wall trying to turn the light on and nothing everything is our except the flashing yellow emergency lights from the apartments outside. I looked back at the bed she was still there and started walking forward the bed creaked and cracked from the weight the sound of wood to this day still scares the hell out of me. I tried to open the door but i forgot i locked it and my brain couldn't comprehend that i locked it earlier and just had to unlock it was pure flight mode. I just grabbed my computer chair next to me closed my eyes and flung it at the window and crash class broke I open my eyes chair on the bed broken glass and it was gone. I walk up to the window and nothing is there not even foot prints or dented wood a flashlight hits my eyes blinding me i raise my hand to block the beam it was security asking if I was alight we had a earth quake and a gas pipe blew whole towns out. He said did the quake break your window I just said yeah said not a issue they would come back later and get it fix just put up card board and tape it up might be awhile I just noded.
The window was fixed my dad came home I didnt bring it up and shortly I moved out to start my life, and for years I moved around but did not see the Deer Woman again for a very long time. I know the story is long so we will do a speed round, got in contact with a shaman back in the Mohave desert where it all started they I was not alot to give details but got a spirit cleanse ceremony and smudging. He told me this would only keep the smaller spirits away but what has attached itself to you will be much harder I cannot help you will need to strengthen your will and spirit like your mother and that power will protect you. In way I knew he was right when my mother reached out and did all those things years ago was over kill but nothing happened. after years of working transfers moving across the nations from Pennsylvanian to Hawaii I land back in Douglas county go figure right. Im married with children we just moved into town to be closer to my wifes parents, staying with them untill apt was ready to move into.
So at this point like my mother I have rosary's on door hands blessed salt in the windows, and we have our birth stones blessed and put into the corners of entrances and house corners. I dont cover mirrors but I still lock all closet doors to this day. its now 2016 and while we are sleeping with the window open her parents dont have AC i hear rustling outside the window I didnt think much of it because it was covered in black berry bushes and rose bushes whom ever is going to try and break in is going to have a bad day. I look out side the window and the deer woman is looking in at me, I quickly shook my wife she was pissed to say none the lest i pointed at the window and motioned "shhh" she looked and quickly got wide eye I grabbed her with my left hand preventing her from moving. The Deer Woman looked at me then at the seal of the window as if it was looking at the salt the looked back and forth of the birth stones it looked at my wife then bolted from the window could hear cloping sounds like a horse on the pavement fading away. after it was gone the street lights seemed bright again and the sounds of the crickets came back, my wife was shaking me like WTF was that, I told her thats my cryptid stalker i told you about.
She always listened to me and always thought I was going over board but never questioned it she knew I wasent lying. This was her first paranormal encounter and now the window has been opened for her she see shadow people, things moving now she dosent like it want the window closed again but now knows the world just got more scary and is more helpful blessing and protecting the house now. It has visited my wife when I was working late one night she went to let the dogs outside the backyard she opened the door and the dogs quickly nope'd and walked behind her refusing to go out. She was confused and then it dawned on her there was no noise, no bugs, wind, the sounds of cars going to the freeway like she was in a bubble the noises dogs next door were quiet and they never where. She started to look over the backyard she saw nothing then that's when she spotted it, there was a shadow in our neighbors yard under his apple tree. It was the same skull she saw in our window just watching her from the next yard over then it just took a step back and told me it just fell into the shadows like it was water and disappeared and then all the sounds came back. Its now 2020 we live by the mountain side there is no development behind us just empty land, I dont sleep at night to this day still work graveyard. I when I take the dogs out between 1am and 4am he mountains are watching you can hear giggling, screaming, laughing from the hills there is nothing out there Ive taken my dogs up there many times there no way a car can get up there or let alone drunk teens no cans no campires tracks foots prints nothing. My dogs hate going up there so i dont do it, every once and awhile I can feel her watching catch a shadow watching me from the hill standing in rocks a shadow darken then the darkness. I know she is not done with me, but I come to realize that I will be followed for life.
Its like a standoff right now, I know shes there she knows I know shes real and I don't know whats next. I don't know what the game is, if death was the answer wouldn't she have just got me those 2 times I was sleeping. I feel like will never have the answers and I will have to pass the strength onto my children so they will be safe in life.
I have shared this before but in this version is much long and more detailed then I have ever wrote before.
|A few questions please: (1) Is this a job for a married man or a single guy? I assume you meet a lot of broads in this business. (2) Do work a single venue or travel with the artists? (3) Any funny stories of riggers falling from great heights, getting electrocuted, etc.? (4) What do you think of the Moody Blues? (5) Do any performers come up to you after the show and tip you? (6) How hectic is your timetable once you have to start rigging stuff? What if you are running super behind but you have to make stool very bad? (7) Are a lot of riggers slobs with long hair and blue jeans, smoking reefers? (8) What's a common mistake for a rookie? For a pro? (9) Are you Union? (10) Worst part of the job? Best part of the job? - Thanks!!||Let me kill your dreams a little: 1) touring is a game best for single men. You're gonna be away from home a lot. There are some artists who are family people. They like to tour for a few weeks, then take a week off with their family, which means you can go home too. But those are rare exceptions. Otherwise, you're going to be in the road for months at a time. On the cruise lines, it's a 6 month contract, 7 days a week, 70 hour weeks are common, and you might get a couple hours off the ship in port. No days off unless you are provably too sick to get out of bed. Ringling Bros was a little more forgiving on days off... But the tour is constant. Only scheduled time off is in transit, and a day per week in annual rehearsals.|
|So far as women, by the time I'm done working, they're gone. It does occasionally happen, but usually it's not all that tempting.|
|2) with the cruise lines, I was in charge of that one theatre, and was support for the other nightclubs. With Ringling, it was a new arena every week (except for very large cities where we stayed for 2+ weeks). Now, I work for a company that handles 2 venues in Laughlin, NV, as well as a ton of one-offs in various casinos.|
|3) funny stories of falling? Nope. I've never slipped or made use of my harness for anything other than carrying more shackles and rapelling, thankfully. I hope my luck holds out. A harness will save your ass, but as I understand, hitting the rip-stop on your lanyard hurts. Sudden spinal compression kinda thing. But I do know of several people who've died.|
|So far as being zapped? All the time. So, the big one was a lighting guy on Ringling. We ran our feeder strait to the truss, and broke it out from there. So, 5 200 amp cables running up. On a load out, they somehow got cut on the aluminum of the bleachers. The lighting guy, not at all aware of this. Walked up and leaned over the bleachers. BOOM, and he's laid out flat about 10 feet back. The lead said something asking the lines of "keep pushing. doesn't matter if he's dead, we've still gotta load out." He was fine, of course. And within a month or so, was the new lead.|
|4) the moody blues are cool. Their jams show a lot of technical skill and general talent... But for the most part, my playlist is depressing metal (Eths, Mushroomhead, Dry Kill Logic, etc).|
|5) it's rare for a band to tip me. But you know who's an awesome tipper? Bigg from Bigg & Rich. He's a big redneck hick from homestead country... But when you do something for him, he will be sure that you know it's appreciated. He just requests respect.|
|Also, good nightclub DJs are pretty good about tipping. You provide the support they need to have nothing in their mind but a good mix, and they will let you know how much they appreciate it.|
|6) go before you climb. Period. Once we start rigging, everything is waiting on us. Audio, video, lighting, and that producer watching his bank account get smaller by the minute. No one wants to wait for you. And everyone is glad to get in your ear about it. All day.|
|7)Ouch. I'm a long hair. But I'm always in blacks. And I don't get high. But some riggers are a little coarse. Others are engineers with an adrenaline addiction.|
|8) a really common rookie mistake is touching things they don't understand, without either asking or being told. Trust me, I want to tell you alll about everything. I want you too learn, so you're easier to work with next time. But I need to see that you can follow instructions first. Also, rookies mistake my casual demeanor for this actually being a casual task. I have come to terms with knowing that my mistakes can kill real people with lives and families and dogs who like to wave to their neighbors in Saturday mornings and love spending time with their kids. Rookies haven't even begun to understand that.|
|So far as pros, the common mistake is forgetting that they're actions can have fatal consequences. Stacking the rig to the limit. Or just getting cocky and letting little errors slip. Not being on top of feedback for audio. For lighting, programming a dull show, cause no one cares about this shitty opening act DJ (I'm guilty of this)|
|9) fuck IA. Union guys wanna bitch about us non-union guys taking food out of their mouths... while the union hires people who aren't full time, knowledgeable techs to work shows.|
|10) worst part: repairing fixtures that sucked to start with. Also, dealing with clients that have no idea what they want... But whatever you just did was not it.|
|The best part is that rare moment when you hit just the right look at just the right time, and the audio is crisp and clear, and the artist his his rockstar pose, and the crowd goes wild, and for a fleeting second, you know that this is truly art and you are the master of it.|
|What is the name of the software you use to control the light system? Also does repeated cycling of power to make lights flash wear the bulbs out faster?||Well... I use lighting consoles, which are basically computers built into a box, specifically geared with ask the hardware, inputs and outputs to control a lighting rig... So, basically, I wouldn't advise using a PC based system to run a lighting show. But, I also understand that some people and some venues don't really have the budget for consoles that go for $5k used. So consider the following with that in mind. I personally like the Hog series. The shop I work for owns a couple RoadHog4s, as well as a WholeHog 3, and a RoadHog3. They each come with an OS designed specifically for the console. But there's also Hog4PC, which is a Windows based facsimile of a Hog console. And if you're willing to pay like $1500, you can get a little box that allows that software to control your lights. So far as surging lights, it kinda depends. I mean, if you're trying to strobe conventional fixtures (old style incandescent), please stop. They just aren't designed to handle that, and you'll blow your budget on replacing them. But, if you fade them in (ETC Sensor racks handle this automatically by default), you'll get more life out of them. With at least 0.5 second smooth] fades, the added wear off turning them on and off should be negligible. Of course, you'll find that knowledge is soon to be pretty useless trivia. Everything is moving towards LED. We just got some [Martin Quantums in that are every bit as bright as any mercury vapor lamped wash. And we've got some LED pars on order that can reasonably replace conventional pars 3 cans to 1 new unit. And we're only paying about $140/unit for a light that can strobe, requires no gel, chews less power, doesn't cook the stage, and is good for around 50,000 lamp hours (with minor repairs somewhere in there). So, before you invest further in conventional lights, consider that a bit.|
|One other question (if you don't mind) for shows that have fireworks/flame bursts, are they different systems controlled by the light operatolight system?||Nope. Anything to do with fire, or sparks, or sudden pneumatic bursts (some confetti canons, or launchers), and even some water effects generally fall under pyro. It's strongly advisable to hire another technician to handle that. Reason being that before the burst, the pyro tech needs to be 100% certain that everything is clear, and the burst will occur within the guidelines of the law. There's a pretty lengthy set of laws on pyrotechnic displays, involving who can be near it, what safety measures must be in place, how close to the audience it can be (circumstance dependant, as close as 15 feet), etc. So, basically, it's a bad idea to make the guy who's watching the light show also fire the pyro. Also, fun stuff to know: if you aren't cleared by federal/state gov to transport pyro, you can't do it. So on Ringling Bros, it would be shipped to us ahead of our arrival in the next city. We'd always get a little extra, to cover for damage or visible defects, or... But if we didn't use it for the show, we couldn't take it with us, and we weren't cleared to ship it anywhere, and you can't just throw it away... So, the law says we had to blow stuff up.|
|doesn't cook the stage.||Thank you! And yeah, at this point, I hate pars. There's nothing a par can do that an LED can't do better. In fairness, LEDs are just now getting to the point of surpassing pars. But they are very much at that point.|
|That's huge. I'm a failed LD/ME (kicked out of grad school, got bitter towards the whole thing) from the '80s and early '90s. When you've got 150-200 1000w FEL lamps going, it could make a stage quite warm.||And I will not miss gel frames in the least. A 120k rig can cost 2 hours easily for a full regel.|
|give you a sunburn, but that's another story.||And I don't consider you a drop out. A lot of us don't have a degree at all. I took a semester of college... before realizing that I was paying full price to be a teacher's assistant, because I already knew what was being taught.|
|MA onPC only outputs DMX when MA onPC hardware is attached.||Tragic! They changed it! Guess it's just Chamsis now.|
|As a touring rigger: What is one thing local riggers do that you love, and one thing that you hate?||I love riggers that take the time to meet before going up. I want to get a feel for who's hanging my shit. I just don't have the same confidence in the guy that's just there to do the gig, and go home. Of course, I understand that 70 something points can be daunting. Particularly in places like the arena in Pittsburgh, where it was done by boom lift to clip bridles to the ceiling. But please, take the 5 minutes to Bullshit with me over how the trip was and how my last load out sucked.|
|Things I hate: don't try to redo my math and insist that I'm wrong. Odds are, mine was done by an engineer before being checked by load cells and read by a second engineer before leaving rehearsals. If you do see something wrong, please politely ask about it. Don't come up to me as a high school drop out with a harness and insist that I'm wrong. I might be wrong... But I'm not interested in some chump bitching about 2135lbs on a CM 1 ton (seriously. Took me 10 minutes to explain that it's a metric ton).|
|Also, if you own your own rope and harness, keep your gear in good condition. Self check before you approach me, please. If I catch you off guard, it's generally cool to let me know you're going to check your gear before you climb and ask me to give you a quick moment. Do not let me see that the back of your harness is frayed, or drop a rope to me that's chewed up. Because if my gear falls because your rope fails, I've got to deal with it. And if you die because your harness fails, my show is getting mentioned in the news. I hate having to chew that guy a new one, because I hate being put in a position with a higher than average chance of failure.|
