Charlie and I spent part of Saturday testing out a new Audiotechnica condenser mic we acquired for Skullshaker HQ. We suddenly realized we were lacking a proper popper for the mic and, of course, were loathe to waste precious weekend-laze-out time to go out and get one. so I did what any straight-thinkin mousy crafter would do… we fashioned a popper out of a roll of clear tape and one of my tights! :) … see this would never have worked in a boys-only house.

The make-shift popper functioned gloriously . I suppose I could’ve made it look prettier. But regardless, lesson learned … don’t let little bumps in the road leave you a damsel in distress. If you got a creative noggin and some junk around the house, you’ve likely got everything you need to solve any problem! 😉

And in case you were wondering what was being recorded, we tracked vocals for a tune we’re working on that will be Skullshaker’s first official release. It’s an homage to DC’s ubiquitous “Doin It In the Park” by The Blackbyrds. I’m so excited about how it’s coming along! And Charlie’s also working on a music video for it. Stay tuned for it this spring or summer!
