  1. I use to cruise the older 2004 Scion XB, aka the "toaster". It got about 30mpg and had plenty of room for my crap when the seats were folded down. It was also a smaller car so I was able to maneuver in/out of tight spaces fairly quickly. I picked one up on craigslist for $3k. They'll last forever if you keep them maintained.
  2. maybe it's time to try doing the repair yourself. Connector issues are very common, and a basic repair, that you should learn to do eventually.
  3. I was the production mixer, not re-recording. Ok, I'll find out. Thanks for the input! Couple more questions actually. So, if they kept all the original FCP edit files then essentially they're not dead in the water, right?
  4. Hello Everyone, A previous employer of mine called me up and said his show is possibly going for syndication. Therefore, the powers at be are asking him to provide the following:
  5. Steve Tibbo and Mark Hensley did the same for me so I will always be indebted to them and will never forget the experience!
  6. yep, sounds like a marketing ploy to me. As someone else has said, I would increase your rate to offset the fees if you really wanted the gig that bad.
  7. I'm with Jeff, I think less is more on this one. Although discussing rates may help others negotiate I've also seen the flip side to this. I've seen newbies say they are entitled to X amount of dollars because that's what the going rate is yet they absolutely SUCK at their job and have no "setiquette" whatsoever. At the end of the day the low ball Producers end up producing crap work that may never be seen, a hungry mixer will undercut his peers to pay the rent, and those who take this job seriously and work hard will get what they deserve. It's an open market just like anything else. No sense beating a dead horse on this one.
  8. Ok, I posted this a year ago and today I'm going to have to recant my original statement. This thing is a freaking brick in a bag! It doesn't help that my back is getting worse but I'm to the point where I'm considering either turning down bag work or selling the RX12 and going back to QRX's. Darn.
  9. I agree.
  10. I delete anything that's not in proper grammar and hang up on phone calls when the person sounds like they're calling from a call center.
  11. What are your thoughts on continuing to roll after cut? https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2016/03/14/caught-on-a-hot-mic-clinton-speculates-about-chris-christies-support-for-trump-did-he-have-a-debt/
  12. Awesome bro! Thanks.
  13. Just a wild guess brother. LOL
  14. ....and calling it TwoUnit thus dodging any need to pay a royalty fee. haha
