Hood sliding like Bo Duke for Microphones

Happy New Year everyone..!

Wow, it’s 2016..!

I feel GREAT about this year. How about you..? How do you fell about it..?

Got any BIG plans or GOALS..?

Well, you KNOW I sure do..!

Two actually…

  1. Get The After Prison Show on TV.

2. Have a lot of success with my paint party ventures that are about to begin THIS MONTH..!

Yep there’s a whole lot I’m trying to accomplish this NEW year…!

I bet all of you have some things that you’d like to accomplish, too.

So, a lot to report…

I been slacking here a bit. So, it’s time to update all of you on the chaos that is my life.

First, WE GOT THE MICS..!

YES..!!!

But then, sadly, ‘no….”

Here’s the story…

It was New Years Eve…

It was raining and miserable and I had to go meet a client ( so professional) to sell some artwork…

As we went on this looooonnng ride to do so,  I was fully aware that Amazon had given me a delivery date that started with New Years Eve…

It also ran all the way until the 6th of January…

Quite a large window of delivery space and I thought there is NO WAY those mics were going to get here on that first date…

ESPECIALLY, WITH IT BEING NEW YEARS EVE..!

Well, we went and met the client and as we were getting back to my place I just had this feeling like maybe we missed the delivery…

We missed the delivery.

There was a “sorry we missed you” note in my mailbox.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO….!!!!!

OHMYGOD the damn mics were right here and we MISSED them..!

Now have you EVER heard of the USPS doing a same day return delivery…?

Me neither.

But still, we tried.

My cameraman Levi sat on the phone with the automated nightmare that is the customer service for the postal service…

“Sorry I didn’t get that, did you say..?’

That was the response to EVERYTHING…!

This actually gave us a lot to use for funny video content.

But that’s another thing altogether.

After about 30 minutes of haggling with the automated service, Levi finally was transferred to an actual HUMAN BEING..!

After about 2 minutes of talking to this human we were informed that the mail truck was still in the area and we should be able to catch it.

Cut immediately to the shot of us running outside and sliding across the hood of the car like Bo Duke in the Dukes of Hazzard…

Then peeling away…

 

Something sort of like that…

We flew down the streets in search of this mail truck.

Where we were told it would be, it wasn’t…

We were almost ready to give up then, WAIT…!

Whats that..?!?

THE MAIL TRUCK..!

We found it..!!!

Of course we did..!!!

The mail dude didn’t ask any questions at all. Which, and maybe this is just that “criminal nature” in me…

But it made me realize just why criminals are targeting packages.

Seems pretty easy to get them.

So…

We got the mics..!

On the way back to my place I thought just how awesome a video like that would have been to shoot…

Our adventures trying to track down the mail truck…

Damn we miss out on some AWESOME content…

But none the less, we got the mics, and now we were ready to shoot a video unveiling them…

So we did that…

We unveiled the mics on camera thanking those who donated to our gofundme.com/afterprison campaign… (Just throwing that out there…)

We talked about how the funds raised go immediately into what we need for the show…

Yeah… It was a GREAT video.

But then, we opened the mics and BOOM…

We realized we needed an additional cord to make them work…

Shit.

Cut the scene back to us running out the door again and hood sliding like Bo Duke, AGAIN…

This time we were burning it down in route to the closest Radio Shack…

And of course, we were shooting footage of ALL THIS..!

We get to Radio Shack and this is were the climatic end happens…

We are informed that its not a special cord that we need…

It’s a WHOLE NEW CAMERA..!

Our Canon Rebel T3 doesn’t support input audio mics…

WHAT.THE.FUCK…?

Show business, folks.

A money vacuum….

In fact, if you don’t have a money machine to keep up with the vacuum like power that filming has on your wallet, then easily will go broke.

Sort of like how I am right now.

But not to fret…

We are now going to sell the Canon Rebel T3 and use that money plus whatever money we can generate from further campaign efforts to upgrade to

So, that’s where we stand right now… And that’s also the story of the microphones…

Hey by the way…

Anyone out there interested in helping us purchase a new camera…

We’re accepting donations and no amount is too small…

5 dollars even helps..!

All of you are awesome and I’ve got a lot more to tell you about… But that’s another post…

  1. It took me a long time to realize that most people are trusting and most people aren’t out to pull a fast one on others.

    Damn, that’s disappointing about the camera. Maybe Craigslist has some inexpensive offerings.
