Stolen from LN, but pretty funny as well as educational.

I think I need to be alone now.
Our three strand 6x12s (I think they're 6x12s at least) constitute 1/3 of our "really nice lights".
"Fresnels are spelled funny"
Why, why, why, was the lens focus knob on the Source4 on the top instead of the bottom of the lens tube? One of my biggest gripes about the S4 is fixtures assembled wrong, not from the factory, but by the users. Everyone-repeat after me: On the rear, the safety attachment ring goes up (why does no one use this?); on the barrel, the gobo and iris slots go up; on the lens tube, the clip goes up; and the barrel rotate and focus knobs go on the bottom. All 5° and 10° should have double clutches and phillips screw and sleeve in the slot on top of the barrel holding the lens tube in. Double clutches are desirable, but not usually essential, with scrollers on 19°-50° units.
I like it on the botton, easier to access on a genie, but to each his own. It doesn't really matter though, you can do either on the newer barrels. As far as the safety ring goes... you figure out a way to use it that does not involve having to re-nico all of your fixtures or a way that makes it quick to get on and go for it. Pulling the safety through the hole does not work. The only way I can see doing it is to use the safety to choker the batten then beaner off to the light. This tends to get wrapped up really quick during focus.
wut is the uw madison theatre, right?

35mm projection and you"
To bad it isn't titled "1.37795276 Inch Projection and You"
Wow... I have seen projectionist work in old movie houses, but never with a carbon arc projector... thats insane. Glad we are moving into the world of large scale digital projectors for movies.
stage" is all one needs to know!
carbon-arc projects. I can think of at least one off-hand that takes pride in their authenticity. They show old movies, sometimes even original prints, in their original format with the carbon-arc projector, it's actually pretty cool. They are properly vented however.
