    I've been working in professional theater for oh crap... 25years....

    Got my degree in theater from Purdue University, my lead professor was Lee Watson. I was an engineering student until I took my first lighting class from him. Great teacher...

    Currently I work in higher education as a technical director. Now I do everything from design lights and sets, to contracts, to master carpenter stuff. Hard to believe I am still in this job, but it's been good to me.

    Spare time, fall, spring and summer you will find me on the water somewhere. Either sailing or canoing. If not there, I am on bike with my camera in hand.

    I get to be the welcome wagon this time! I hope I do this right.

    Welcome to the Booth! It's a very active community and someone always seems to have the answer to your question. On that same token, don't be afraid to get involved, and use the search feature because theres alot of good, informative old topics.

    Now, do you/does your company/your educational facility have a website?

    Also, how do you feel about:

    Pirates vs Ninjas?

    Metric vs Imperial?

    120 vs 240?

    Sloop,

    As one who is old enough to know who Lee Watson was, and met him at a pre-LDI USITT conference, Welcome to the Booth. You've got a great website. What year did you graduate Purdue?

    Just ignore the questions about pirates/ninjas, imperial/metric, 120/220. Trust me, you'll be better off. Hey, Icewolf08, look at this! He'll be along in a moment to welcome you himself, Sloop.

    I graduated Purdue in 1984... Worked a lot during school. I wasn't exactly on "the 4 year plan". I'm glad to know someone here knows who Lee was. He was quite a character.. and a **** good designer/teacher.

    120, 240, what ever it takes...

    You can try to ignore the questions, but they'll get to you, and make you answer them. It's all in good spirits, I think. :)

    :mrgreen:Welcome Aboard! Yeah Another carp/all around technician type person! Lee Watson, Boy that name sounds familiar. I should probably know it.
    Hmmm A sailor as well. That means you've got to side with me and the Pirates !

    Welcome aboard the booth sailor person.

    Nice to have a bit more balance for the young crazies.

    So how do you feel about Cats and Dogs and would you turn a wombat into a pie?

    Welcome to the booth Sloop. Glad to have another educator around. There are a lot of great young folks here eager to learn and be inspired. Hopefully you'll find sharing as enjoyable as the rest of us. Plus we do have a good time screwing around.

    Um Logos... you ok buddy? Lately I've been the sane one in these posts and it's starting to concern me.

    Yeah, sorry gaff, I'm doing a truly awful repair and maintenance job for someone at the moment and it's really getting to me. We're having a really hot November and the space isn't air conditioned.

    I've fallen off the trolley.

    I don't need to say any more. :twisted:

    p.s. I want a pirate smiley, maybe I should be that in the "suggestions" forum.

    Dang it Van... you've subjected me to another day of "Pieces of 8"

    Be careful Sloop it's an annoyingly catching tune.

    I think by now a pirate smiley is beyond a suggestion and more of a demand.

    Don't you love songs like that. Speaking of pirates though, I just picked up a mint condition original "Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl" Movie poster. Probably spent more than I really wanted to, but how could you pass up an opportunity like that?

    I bet Logos will buy it for double what you paid. Wouldn't it look great on the back of the bathroom door?

    Pirates and Ninjas, is that baseball? And if so, why do Australians know about it?

    Yes there is a Pirate baseball team but that's not what we are talking about. The question is which of these historical groups of bad boys are the toughest and coolest. Both are common topics for exciting action and adventure movies. We really aren't trying to confuse the non-english speakers in the booth.

    Pirates

    Ninjas

    The coolest and the toughest, aha.

    No wonder I didn't get it.

    My vote is for Smurfette.

    Well, since we've added cubits as a third choice, may I introduce the samurai as a third option?

    I believe the real official third choice is zombies (at least on Facebook... and I hate getting the darn invitations to join one side or the other). The Samurai are too closely related to Ninjas.

    See with Zombies the real choices are Zombies or Zippys. Zombies are your typical "Dawn of the Dead" fare, Zippys are the ones in "28 Days Later" they move much faster
