Here's to April!
I'm really into microphones again. I got a lot of voice-over work last week, and everyone was happy with what I did. I bought a new mic a few weeks ago, and it's clearly working well. But when you love microphones as I do, you're never happy with the one you've got. You're always curious to know what another one sounds like that you don't have. My Beyerdynamic M201 is great, but now I want a Sennheiser MD421.
What I'd love to do one day is to procure the audio equipment for a little radio station. Maybe a community one. Or an AM talk station in the USA. I'm sure people involved with RSLs have money to spend, and they probably do not need to spend so much on certain pieces of equipment. I could really give some great advice in terms of what works best for less. I'd love to be on a little radio station in the USA one day.
It's nice and light now the hour has gone forward. But don't get me started on that! (We should put it forward 30 minutes and never change it again).
This week will be a busy one. Thankfully my mum will be here all week for moral support. I havemy car's MOT test tomorrow so I can buy my tax disc online later that day (ooh, the joys of owning a car in the UK), an electrician coming on Tuesday (and possibly for a number of days - he's a fireman for a living so can't work for a full week). I'm hoping he will close an on-going saga. I have 85 downlighters to have installed in my new house, and I had got a friend's son who is an electrician to do the work, but his dad started the installation by drilling most of the holes with his friend, but never wired anything up before becoming ill (bed-ridden) about 5 weeks ago, leaving all his tools here. So I've been living in semi-darkness in that time. I've just remembered 5 solid oak doors are being delivered on Monday too.
I'd better go to bed!
