Maybe a Shure SM58. An SM48, which is extremely similar, can be had for fifty bucks. You’ll have a little money left over!
I’ll assume you’re not on stage making your recordings, and you have complete control over ambient sound, and you have good headphones. So you’re looking for, I’m assuming, a studio mic for vocals.
Cheap street is the SM58. It’s a standard mic, with a standard polar pattern, and is usually used on stage, but since we don’t know what your singer sounds like, what your singer prefers, or if you’re looking for a particular sound, why not have a standard-performing mic? It won’t cost $500 – maybe $100.
The problem with AA is something that happens very early, when a person, a “sufferer,” is first introduced to the idea, sees a pamphlet or checks out his first meeting … the system can easily lose its credibility and feel either like it’s extreme, or members are jumping to conclusions …
Ambiguous Permanence: It’s never been proven alcoholism is permanent, but members commonly insist it is. This is a credibility hit if the new person thinks about it … To make matters confusing, the words “alcoholic” Continue reading “Why is AA So Ineffective?”
This will help, as time goes by and my predictions become true, demonstrate my amazingness (he said while typing on a little computer in bed in his sweats).
First off, I predict Chloe Kohanski will win “The Voice.” Those of you who follow popular music probably think I’m cheating a little, since the competition was over last week, and Chloe actually did win … But I predicted it in November!
Already hard to keep up, huh?
In Chloe’s case, I didn’t actually call the winner, but I saw it comin’!
I’ve mentioned the dinosaurs walking Earth, eBay and Amazon. But what about Craigslist? Is it even worth a mention? What’s it all about, and why isn’t it in the news until someone gets busted when a personal massage goes wildly wrong?
Craigslist must not be important. Ebay would have bought it, or Google by now. It’s just an anomaly, floating out there with no big impact …
No man should ever wear an entirely light blue suit. There might be a book of great advice like this, called “Awkward Things To Avoid” that my cable company, Cox Communications, got a hold of for its advertising campaigns.
Here’s a company that breaks every rule of good advertising, creating the ultimate catalog of mediocre, awkward television ads, despite being in the TV business. Probably because they’re not really in the TV business. They just use those old cables to compete with Netflix.
Which is odd, because I still have listings for sale on the platform. I no longer believe Amazon is a good place for any small- or medium-sized company to use for retail sales (backend seller accounts).
It all started recently, when my awareness and perspective improved over time. I’ve been an Amazon seller for a dozen years, always assuming it was the “place to be,” just because there’s lots of eyeballs on the site. But I never sold much. I thought, as anyone might, it was my fault.
That’s right! 25-billion-dollars will be given to one lucky reader!
Somebody’s gonna be rich – why not you? Don’t delay, just simply give me your First Name, your Email Address, and your Eyeballs. That’s all I need. In return, you will be entered into the “Marvelous Mark Makes Me Mucho RICH” (Amazon Event Code # MMMMMR) contest, during which one lucky winner will receive 25-billion-dollars from my personal checking account, which has that much money in it.
More than that, actually. It’s not a big deal.
Or, at least I have my pride. That’s worth a lot.
And you’ll get lots of cool information and music and stuff.
I learned years-ago (long before Facebook) there are newspapers (and this is NOT related to the above-mentioned contest) which publish front-page news stories about Obama meeting with Aliens, or Beyonce taking her dress off on a faraway planet; you know, things that are sort of far-fetched … and these papers and magazines get away with telling their fake news simply because the news is SO far-fetched no-one could possibly believe it.
I don’t know why I wanted to mention that. It’s not related.
