The headset solution

If you've listened to my podcasts, you know that I've been wrestling with the pops and creaks that occur when I move my head. Oh, my head is fine... but my Logitech headset isn't. The mic is super-sensitive.

This past week, researching microphones, I read that others have had similar problems. That got my brain working: If it's not a defective mic, maybe there's a solution!

This morning, I figured it out. I hot glued the microphone in place. We're talking lots & lots of hot glue. And... it worked!

Oh, I've ordered a better quality microphone so that my podcasts won't sound quite so much like I'm talking down a paper towel tube or something. But, until the new mic arrives, I can keep using the Logitech headset; it's working vastly better, now. In fact, I recorded three weeks' worth of ghost-related podcasts this morning, with minimal editing. Life is good!

*LOL* Sometimes, it's clear why I'm a better at art than at writing!

The mouthpiece on the headset moves up and down. I hot glued it--relative to the headband/earphones part of the headset--so that it can't wiggle around.

I hope that makes more sense than my original post!

But... you know that list of ridiculous things that people have said when filing car insurance claims? Well, I am the one who said, "My car was legally parked as it backed into another vehicle."

I was trying to explain that I was backing out of a legal space, looking over my shoulder towards oncoming traffic on a one-way street, when someone pulled up behind me and parked (illegally) directly behind my car. I ran into it.

I recognized my statement as soon as I read it, over 20 years ago. I laughed like crazy, of course!
