    No-Show Client

    Here's an interesting situation. Back in August, I had a prospect contact me about her May 2014 wedding. We sent a few e-mails back and forth and then she disappeared. No big deal. A month later, she contacted me again and told me she had changed her date to April 2014. Again, we sent a few...

    New Vehicle Time - Need Some Ideas

    Well, my old Windstar is on its last legs. I have some money put away to buy a much nicer and newer vehicle so the time has come. Since I haven't bought a vehicle in almost a decade and am pretty unfamiliar with all the new ones out there (crossovers and such), I figured I could ask my DJ...

    Power Cord For ADJ Starball LED

    I have an American DJ Starball LED and have misplaced the power cord. I've tried a few other similar cords but all they do is make the ball turn on but not spin around. The specs are 12V-1.67A/20VA. When I told two different Radio Shacks this, they told me there was no way they could help...

    Self-Maintained Website & Hosting Help

    Hey There, I've run into a slight dilemma. I created my website using Yahoo Sitebuilder in 2004 and loved it because I could update it myself very quickly. Yahoo also hosts my website for $12.95 per month. Well, about a month ago, Java asked me to update to their latest version (version 7)...

    Officiant No-Showed

    Well, it took almost 17 years but it finally happened. The officiant no-showed! I'm doing a small (50 guests) daytime ceremony and reception today. I arrived, set up, and greeted the Bride who was getting ready inside. I asked her if the officiant had arrived yet and she said "Oh, about...

    Dumb Things Prospects Say

    Here's an example of dumb things prospects say. This was one of many questions I got from a prospect in an e-mail a few days ago... "So, your website says unlimited time. So, that means you'll play from start to finish, right?" ...pounds head on desk... Feel free to add your own.

    Funny Bit From Last Night

    I tend to use sarcasm to get laughs on the mic, especially when I happen to make small mistake. I’ll usually make fun of myself and say “I apologize, but this is my first night and I’ve never done this before.” It usually gets a good laugh. Well, yesterday was a rough day. I had been up...

    Emceeing A Bridal Show

    Hey There, I've recently been asked to emcee a bridal show. Has anyone ever done it? Pros? Cons? I do a lot of bridal show but have never had an interest in being the emcee (I have enough to worry about running my booth). However, this is for a smaller show about an hour away. I did 2 of...

    Audio Technica > Line 6

    Well, I had been having some major microphone issues over the last year. I was an AKG user for a long time but the last 2 dual mics I bought from them had 1 mic that wouldn't work, so to hell with them I said. I had heard good things about Line 6, so I forked out $500 for a single mic. I...
