The Ribbon Master
Filling in this week for my roommate who is in LA at the X games. I'm running the LED boards, also known as ribbon lights at the St Pete Times Forum (the Ice Palace).
Yesterday, I had to replace a bad power supply in one of the upper lights. This involved balancing on the third row and leaning over to take out a bad power supply, reattach all the connections and put the new power supply in. It felt like the first real challenge I've had at a job in years, and it was wildly fulfilling to finish.
The three shows I'm doing are American Idol, Demi Lovato and Green Day. I'm not really crazy about any of the shows, but it's always cool to acquire new job skills.
