Don't know if any one else heard Bit Hume say this as FOX cut away for a commercial a few minutes ago....if couse my ears are geeting old, tho.....
I heard it, too.
My typing skills are also going down hill.....
So what’s the deal with the retro headsets? Is somebody screwing with their radio feed and forcing them to communicate by wire?
"..hey, anybody seen illiac's "R" key?
I wondered the same thing when I first saw them on night 2 of the RNC. If you saw night 1 (pre-headsets), they were having difficulty with the noise/music coming from downstairs. The headsets help with that, I believe.
Precisely. Take it from a longtime guitar player with plenty of stage time.....”cans” help. A lot.
Lol, indeed. This thing is a dog. I usually tune into a decent chunk of the DNC convention every time, no matter how painful. This one is second rate. This party has sunk to a pathetic level. Nothing of substance to be found. No discussion of how to tackle the top issues.
That is because they promised God and delivered Obama.
I don’t think any candidate has gotten a negative bounce from a convention. There is a very good chance this will be the 1st.
According to democrats ... aren’t they one and the same? Just ax’n
Evil internet forces?
Whatever, I needed a bit of 'transparency' before Biden's love fest.
LOL...my grandkids have been known to steal key tops off our computers....
I heard it and loved it!
“So whats the deal with the retro headsets?”
Maybe they’re those noise canceling headsets.
I know that’s what I would wear.
Thought it was my imagination . . . but I do agree with him.
Their set oversees the convention hall. Tuesday night when we watched, they did not wear the headsets. The sound/noise/cheering from the convention hall below/behind them was so loud that we couldn't hear them and turned off the TV. They were screaming at each other, presumably, because they couldn't hear each other either.
Wednesday they wore the headsets. I'm sure they hear each other through the headsets, and it blocks out the noise below.
i did! I hope Rush and the rest play it back on air to their 50 million listeners!
....Just media telling us how wonderful everything about it is.
Heard it too and also laughed. Might embarrass Brit—but it was great!
My thoughts exactly! Snicker-snort!
Don’t people proof-read their stuff before they pull the trigger? I do, and even THEN I screw something up occasionally!
If this was aired somebody went to break/commercials very slowly.
“Take it from a longtime guitar player with plenty of stage time.....cans help. A lot.”
Yeah,,,,, but,,,, take it from another long time player and studio musician,,,, “cans” can damage your hearing too.
Cans Can? Let’s dance!
When I see friends play shows, I can’t be there without ear plugs. So I know the feeling.
They double as ear muffs.
It is the ghetto convention.
god i wish someone would of said something like, “oh god, that clown biden is up next, i wonder if he will insult 1/2 the audience tonight”
Was glad to see Football game kill Clinton's speech
Man, that is a gorgeous looking cat!
Like 1996 when Brit’s pal David Brinkley called Clinton a bore.
Well it is pretty pathetic. Just about what I expected.
As a former drummer I ‘’can agree, Monitors(’’speakers’’) close by help too. I think the head-set thing came in after the first night when they were all using hand-held mikes.
You’re absolutely correct; that’s why it’s important, when using in-ear monitors or cans, to really pay attention to the volume.
Of course, being yer typical rock guitar slinger, I tend to have ‘em WAY too loud. :)
Pigs are flying.
Every single convention, every single speech is hailed as the turning point that will stick a fork in the Republicans forever and ever.
I’ve also heard many singers sing slightly flat, if the “cans” are up too loud.
Yep....happens a lot.
On a demo session for a local songwriter, I was there for guitar and pedal steel, and the singer from my band to do the vocal. I told the engineer, to set the mike high, like Lemmy’s, and to keep the volume in Bobby’s cans low, so that he’d sing loudly.
Their god Obama is turning out to be an impotent imposter.
