The Best Advice

conversationsfromthebooth:

(Lighting designer and director are discussing a cue, with light-op watching)

D: I still think it’s too bright…what’s your front light at?

LD: (sees readouts ranging from 30% to 70%) Fifty!

D:  Bring it down…maybe 35?

LD: (changes readings to 50ish) Like that?

D:  Better….What’s that?

LD: Forty!

D: I like it! Keep it like that!

LD: (changes readings to 40ish and saves cue)

LO: Wait, LD…

LD: You give the director what they want, not what they ask for.

prince—william:

I bet you had no idea that you speak Old French and Old English everyday.

After the Battle of Hastings in 1066, Duke William of Normandy’s army slaughtered King Harold and won the English crown. William spoke Old French, so when he became the ruler of England (where people spoke Old English), he forced the government to start using Old French. People pretty much spoke one in public and another at home. TO THIS DAY, we’ve kept both vocabularies.
