A dude I know got all exited when he was asked to do a company vlog (Video Blog). So he ran out and bought a bunch of equipment, like recorders, mixers, lighting and green screens. –Before seeing the money.
Yeah, you saw this next bit coming:
After he put all that shit junk and crap on his card he was told that the company didn’t have the budget to reimburse him after all.
Can you say crash and burn? –So much for his shot at internet fame.
The good part is he bought it all with a 30 day, no questions asked, right of return. So he dragged everything back to the store except for this Sony recorder he bought online.
Instead of returning it or using it for work he sold it to me.
It was one of those, “I’ve gotta have it” moments, because the second I saw it, I had an epiphany. –I would use it to record all those brilliant ideas I have while I’m rolling in to work.
Yeah, right. “Best laid schemes” and all that.
I’ve tested it and it has pretty good noise rejection, so it’ll do the job, but I haven’t had a flash of brilliance worth recording since I bought it.
Oh well, I’ll find something to do with it, but something tells me it’s not going to make any sort of major change in the way I work.
Note to self:
Next time ignore the stupid epiphany and spent the money on dope or booze. They won’t make you a genius, but for a little while they’ll let you delude yourself into believing you are.
