My Tim Allen (Home Improvement) Moment
« on: November 17, 2013, 10:53:58 AM »
I am doing a lot of improvements around the house because while the house was well built, the previous owner didn't have a clue. I like to tell people he thought he was Bob Vila from This Old House, but in reality he was more like Tim Allen from Home Improvement.

With that said, I had my own Tim Allen moment yesterday. I was using spray foam to seal up some problem areas in the basement when I lost my balance on the ladder. I was able to catch myself before I fell, but not before my head hit the area I just sprayed.

If you've ever used this stuff, you know it can be a pain get off your skin. Imagine getting it in your hair. I tried to pick it out of my hair, but I was pulling out too much hair and it was starting to hurt. Because I knew it wasn't going to come out, I went upstairs and got out the clippers and razor.

I won't share the after pictures of my bald head, but here's one of the clumps of my hair.

Yes, that stuff is crazy to get off of a surface. Bummer, though it'll grow back. Nothing but a good story to recall years later (of which the shaved patch headshot could be stellar)!

You didn't mention the fall also put you in traction.

That's awesome. It wasn't nearly as bad when I was gluing my new countertops together with carpenter's glue, and got said glue in my hair when I was tightening up the clamp bolts underneath.

 What mic on that boom?

 I cut all my hair off shortly after I started riding. It was too much of a PITA. Haven't looked back.

It's just an RE20.

 Great versatile dynamic mic that's very affordable. Right up there with the SM7.

I'll agree the RE20 is the best utility mic in broadcast, but my favorite mic for the studio is a Neumann M150.

I could never get an SM7 to sound good.

 Lose the foam, and pretend it's a LDC. You need a good preamp with lots of gain.
