Aw, you don't remember my posts from six months or so back :cry:
I bought an original one when i first moved to London, great great fun! Expensive for the original vintage one, but I've heard you can get copies that are brand new. Mine's got some tuning issues. which makes it more fun. Microtonal fun :joy:

I've tried running through different stuffs, most fun is getting it an octave down or less and running through a bass wah. The internal speaker is loud and it has an amp output (mini-jack is you'd believe it). What I want to do now is making it into an ultra portable vocoder by putting the ghetto funnel and tube over the internal speaker. Good idea basti!

I hope I made as much sense as I tried, gots a really bad fever and go "what was that, did you say something?" and "oh, there's noone in my room, I see", concluding "who am I tawking to?"

I'd want to modify it so it was a metal thimble that was on the end of the wire. Then I could place my finger in that and wouldn't get carpal tunnel from marathon music sessions. Shit..maybe you could expand the range and have 10 thimbles connected to 10 circuits all tuned differently!

Those videos are hilarious !
In the first one, I love the shaking leg before the guy starts to play: what a groove !
And in the 2nd one, mind you that we actually get to see the guy who invented multitrack recording software ! Wow ! :D :idk:

Seriously, I learnt something: in french, a pen is called a "stylo" , who would have thought the french name came from that instrument. I really thought it was the other away around.

Koyl, I like your sense of humor!! :p

For the record, the real etymology of the word "stylo" :

STYLOGRAPHE, STYLO, subst. masc.
Étymol. et Hist. 1902 stylographe (A. Jarry, Le Surmâle, in Œuvres complètes, t. 3, p. 200 ds Rey-Gagnon Anglic.) ; 1912 stylo (Alain-Fournier, Corresp. [avec Rivière], p. 325); 1948 stylo à billes (Motocycles, loc. cit.); 1956 stylobille (Science et vie, no 460, janv., p. 6, ibid., t. 30). Empr. à l'angl. stylograph, dér. de style « style, poinçon pour écrire ou graver » à l'aide de l'élém. -graph corresp. au fr. -graphe*, att. dep. 1882, parallèlement à stylographic pen (1880), et désignant à l'orig. un porte-plume à réservoir où la plume est remplacée par un style creux à travers lequel s'écoule l'encre.

Is this a deleted scene from Napoleon Dynamite?

"My theory is that music is good, it's the only religion that delivers the goods. And anybody who wants to hear any kind of music is entitled to hear that music because it's good for you – it makes you feel good. If you like it, go for it. Just because I don't like it doesn't mean anything – it's a matter of personal taste."

-Frank Zappa
