Funny nonsense pics

I was looking for a pop filter in eBay and found this photo of a guy singing trough a pop filter mounted on a mic stand and holding the mic with his hand instead of the mic clamp. I know is kinda stupid and that guy doesn’t have any idea of what’s a mic stand for but I thought it would be funny to post silly and nonsense images like this. If you have some, please share

There was a music video on Youtube were there was a Sennheiser 441 pointing upwards and the guy was singing to it as side-address. Unfortunately I can't find the video now. Similar "techniques" take place every now and then

Yup.
Might be the same special version RE20 they used in the Queen movie...

To be fair, a friend of mine was using a front address mic like a side address for recording guitars.... but it sounded great! I had to point out that he was using it wrong but to keep doing it because it worked.

Yeah ads are always a great source of nonsense technique like that. I love seeing ads where the performer is singing into the end of a side address mic, or cupping a condenser and/or having their mouth pressed right against it. I think in that last case they take "eating the mic" a bit too seriously.

Here's a picture of singing into the end of a side address mic and touching the shock mount from Behringer's website. Oh yeah, it's a cardioid mic too, so they're singing into the top and looms like behind the diaphragm as well.

It's not a photo, but the silliest micing technique I ever saw was an "Assistant Engineer" putting up an RE20 pointed at the wall to "get a great room tone". It took me a few seconds to realize he wasn't joking. I threw him out of the session.

I point mics away from sources and toward walls all the the time.
