  • I remember seeing some kind of bar/nightclub in Bellevue Washington (or maybe it was Redmond?) with a cool logo on the sign in front. I'm drawing it from memory but it vaguely looked like this:



    So it looked like a martini glass with an olive in it, but it also looked like two people laughing, but it also looked like musical notes, which means it might be the most clever logo I've seen. I couldn't find it last time I looked on Google street view, does that ring a bell for anyone else?

  • An animated gif I saw on Facebook one time where a cartoon character is trying to draw a line on a tablet and keeps redrawing the line 50 times.

  • An authentic Harry Potter Obama 10 Sonic bootleg backpack (Nobody has found one so I'm starting to think it was a hoax.)

  • Does anyone know how I can recreate the synthesizer sound at the beginning of this song?

Reverb, delay, and saw waves for the synth sounds. It's really generic so not sure of the actual patch or anything. Kinda sounds like a Roland.

Since I'm posting, I'm going to say this can't be an original story (written by Arthur Conan Doyle), both from the likelihood of him talking about someone walking like a homosexual, and from a quick Ctrl+F of my ebook copy. No idea what it is, just what it probably isn't. Things do get described as 'queer' a lot, though...

The word ďmulattoĒ appears in The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge, and someone (not a client) is described turboracistly, but no one is indicated as being gay (though ďqueerĒ shows up in the archaic sense).

If it isnít that Iíd agree with the other post that it isnít an ACD original youíre looking for.

Some Christian books just got linked in the terrible books thread in PYF and it sparked a memory of some insane Christian epistolary novel that tried to be a modern Screwtape Letters. Iím pretty sure there were like four human characters these two demons (an uncle and nephew) were corresponding over. Some of the humans died to the dangers of premarital sex/drinking/roleplaying games/tarot cards/ouija boards, I think.

Actually, holy crap, typing this up made me remember it was weirdly specific about things that were connected to the spooky evil demons - the one I recall explicitly right now is (weirdly) the song The Way by Fastball, which was some demonic ploy about false visions of heaven for unbelievers and suicides. Surprisingly Iím no longer on great terms with the friend that lent it to me in high school but itís boggling my mind right now and I want to see if Iím remembering it incorrectly somehow.

It started circulation around Feb-March and I guess didn't have the legs to make it through summer? That was also the summer 'The Boy Is Mine' came out and just blew everything out of the water.

I recall it was a little too pop for alternative radio and a little too alternative for all the pop stations, too.

I've always wondered if the beginning has a Madonna clip. There's a female voice that sounds like her.

There was a short video of a man who lived alone in an apartment, with the hots for his neighbour. The thing was he was half a man, vertically. He kidnaps the woman, slices her in half and sews her onto him. Naturally the two halves don't get along and so she (literally) splits with him. The woman goes about her daily life with a vertical scar.

Have tried to find this over the years, but never found it.

I play and collect old vintage keyboards. There are a few synthesizers which are definitely white whales. First is the Yamaha GX-1 - a lot like the CS-80, but built like an organ with two manuals and a 25-note pedalboard. Stevie Wonder used one on Songs In The Key of Life. I think they only made, like, 2 dozen of them. Keith Emerson used to own one - Hans Zimmer owns it now. A CS-80 would be sweet too, but they're also rare and fetch stupid prices at auction; we're talking like $30k.
There's also the Ondes Martenot - an early (1930s) instrument that is a lot like a keyed theremin, with three different speaker cabinets for different timbres. Not sure how many of these there are. The coolest part is the control - the keybed can wiggle for vibrato like you would on a cello; there's a ring you can wear on your finger for sliding note to note, and there's a touch-sensitive button for the attack. See the video below.
For electric pianos - I'd like an early Wurlitzer electric piano. I have a 200A and a 120, but there was also a 112, which I think was the first commercially available one they made. I guess they're a nightmare to work on, barely out of the prototype stage and not designed with servicing in mind. I'd also love to find a Rhodes Mark V, the last Fender Rhodes made only briefly in the early 80s before the company folded. There was a version with MIDI output that I would love. They also made a single 88-key one which surfaced within the last couple years (the mold for the plastic shell broke after making that one, and the company folded before they could make more), but it sold to someone in Vegas.
Hammond is best known for their organs - which I own many of - but they also briefly produced the Novachord, which is in essence an early polyphonic synthesizer built entirely with vacuum tubes and a ton of capacitors. They were used on radio programs like a classic recording of War of The Worlds. I can't remember their dimensions, but they're wide enough that you can't get them through a standard doorway. There were also some capacitors in them that used PCBs, so you potentially have haz-mat concerns working on them. The original prototype actually had a velocity-sensitive keyboard, but they decided that added too much to manufacturing costs for what was gained.
There are two models of Hammond organ it would be fun to own - one is the Concert Model E, made in the late 30s and early 40s. The other is the Grand-100 or G100, which didn't have Hammond's signature drawbars; instead it just had stop tabs like a pipe organ. I sent a message to someone with a Model E who sent one reply and haven't heard from since, and there was a G100 across the country that I couldn't get to in time and was scrapped.
As for organs I DO own, well... I honestly am not sure how many I own now but it's probably over 20. The rarest ones are probably a Hammond Model A (serial no. 892, mfd. in 1935), a Model G (made for the US Government during WWII; not many were saved), and a Model M spinet, although Model Ms do seem to come up with some frequency. I also have many Leslie speakers, and there are a couple rare early ones it would be fun to own. I have a 31A, but there was one other prototype model before that, and my 31A does not have the original amplifier. The other rare ones I own are a 50C, and a 122 that may be one of the first 200 built.

"Forgive me," said Holmes, "I weary you with my hobby."
"Not in the least!" I answered. "It is of profound interest to me, since I've been privileged to witness the practical application firsthand."
Holmes accepted this indifferently as he turned to observe our guest, sending thick wreaths from his pipe as he worked his extraordinary genius.
"Well then," he said shortly, "Observation tells me that you have been loafing in alleys, playing dice games in the hopes of earning coppers to pay for malt liquor and menthols. Yesterday, you misplaced your afro pick and you're seeking my help in evading capture from the Korean liquor clerk you hoped to pilfer a replacement from."
The stranger started in surprise.
"I assure you, Mr. Holmes, that all of these conclusions are completely erroneous!"
"Not at all," he replied, with a knowing smile. "On the contrary, they're so elementary that explanation is practically superfluous! From the first moment I saw you, I sensed from your wide brow Sicilian ancestry, a bloodline long polluted by race-mixing with the dark continent. You're practically a quadroon, and thus hardly fit to be seen without the fashionable accessories of your kind."
"The afro pick!" I ejaculated.
Holmes nodded appreciatively, and went on.
"Somebody with your genetic makeup could scarcely resist the ever-present allure of malt liquor and menthols in the rookery, but would never have the ethic to earn the necessary coin through an honest day's work. Your drooping lips indicate far too slow of a wit for a card or cup game. Having eliminated the impossible, only dice games remain."
"Incredible, Holmes!" I said, astonished, "No matter how many times I see you do it, it never ceases to impress!"
"Simplicity itself," my companion replied.
The stranger sputtered in outrage, but Holmes started again.
"By your monolid eyes, I can see your antecedents also miscegenated with OrientalsĖ a more devious and underhanded lot I've never known. You would never think to pay for a replacement afro pick, but you'd also never raise a hand to steal from the inherently decent white men of the culture that civilized you. No, indeed, you could only steal from one of your own. And since you still don't have the afro pick, you must have been caught. Finally, knowing that men of the Far East only betray each other to the law when their ancestry is separated by the divide of seas, the merchant can only have been Korean."
"I just wanted your help solving my brother's murder!" the stranger burst out furiously.
The guest shoved his hat firmly onto his head and stormed out of the door of 221b Baker Street in the kind of emotional outburst typical of his kind, only turning back once to shout, "And I'm 100% Greek you crazy racist son of a bitch!"
"Greek is a euphemism," Holmes said to me quietly, "I didn't see him walk before but now that I have it's obvious that man is a sodomite."
"Simply astounding," I remarked.
