    Wow, a close call. I don't know what it is like in the US, but that would attract the attention of a whole army of safety inspectors here in Oz.

    I almost quit playing guitar every day. But, that's only because I suck... ;) :D

    Glad you're OK!

    No, didn't even slow it down, the casement was a total loss.

    Apparently the boom operator was told it was off balance and to lower it back down, but being a young guy, full of pee and vinegar AND being the son of the supply company's owner, he figured he could power through it. As soon as his helpers tried to pull the first 2 boards through the window, it all went south.

    I hope the young boom operator is ''spoke to'' and learns a valuable lesson. Plus we're glad you and everyone else on the job are OK!

    It's in the hands of the insurance companies now, whether it goes beyond that is doubtful since no one got hurt.

    Wow, could have ruined some of those sheetrock with the print of your face in them.
    Glad you are ok.
    I hate it when you can not trust the people around you

    Home Depot makes and all-in-one blood stain sealer, primer and finish coat paint, that dries in 5 minutes, no one would ever know. It's that good.

    I was working on a building where the boom driver hit an iron beam that some iron workers had just left sitting on its supports without even tacking it down. Up at second floor height, an 8x12 inch, probably 20 feet long beam. It came down on his chest. It hit so hard the control seat bent all the way back. How he didn't get killed amazes me. Drove him into the ground but I all that happened was got knocked out and hurt his shoulder I think. I was afraid it crushed his ribs and punctured his lungs

    I see it now. I didn't realize that first photo was shot through the window.

    If drastically reducing your amount of playing counts here, then yes.

    I developed some sort of tendonitis or carpal tunnel issues, which I attribute to using my PC keyboard and mouse. I associated guitar playing with pain. Needless to say, it is very disconcerting.

    Anyway, I came across the video. The weight training section didn't seem to help much but, the stretching section does. I try to do it at least twice a day, preferably three times, every day.
