Another hilariously dangerous week in the world of Entertainment! Â As I get ready to head out to Fort Worth for this year’s USITT 2014 conference, another week of jaw-dropping dangerous situations appears to us all on the Not Safe for Working series on JimOnLight.com, brought to you in part by the Dodgy Technicians Facebook group!
Aaaaaaaaand we start out strong with some crispy 230V. Â Nah, nothing wrong here.
“Hey Mark, how’s the insulation on that lead?”
“Well, it’s disintegrated.”
This… Â this was at ProLight+Sound 2014. Â How the — what the — isn’t this supposed to be a professional show?!
Cat5e. Â Good for network traffic, and now, safety cabling.
Cable ties. Â Apparently also good for load bearing. Â WTF!
More from this year’s ProLight+Sound 2014. Â WTF!
Reach Lars, REACH! Â ACHTUNG!
This. Â This is what my nightmares look like:
See this? Â That’s fucking radio antenna truss. Â See the ladder? Â That’s a ladder.
I have no idea where this is, but these guys are about on the level of the idiots in North Carolina who thought that their work was completely up to snuff. Â Another Bobby McLamb and L&N Productions job? Â Haaa, who knows.
Two bends and some tape. Â No, no, that’ll hold.
I had to put my tape translation skills to the test on this one. Â It says “phoned in.“
Um, no. Â No. Â No, no, no, no, no.
Ladies and gentlemen, a forklift masterpiece!
Next week, we’ll see what happens when you use tape to hold up truss!
