Self Booming a Mic and Acting

Not sure if anyone here has posted this at some point in the past. But I find it really helpful being short of a boom operator.

You are a day late for April Fools!

If your post was serious, might I suggest you listen to the way that the self-booming person's voice is strained, and his breathing labored, due to all the physical exertion of holding a boom pool and microphone above his own head. Those artifacts are really hard to remove in post. (Yes, they can be replaced in post, but if you are doing dialog replacement, who cares about the initial sound capture as other than a guide track anyway?)
