It's really fun that now I do so many voice over auditions in a day that I don't even put my stand and mic holder away! I'd leave the cord out as well except my fluffy cat (the one who is usually the good one) is a notorious cord-chewer. I caught him red-handed one morning going to town on the Xbox cord that charges the controllers and now he cannot be trusted!
I have had a great opportunity to record some really fun stuff, hopefully more small video game VO auditions pop up again soon. Did more background work, it was nice to sit in an air-conditioned building for 5 hours eating snacks and Watchmen. The only work required of me that day was to stand and clap, woohoo!
