Trapped

The Kilgen theatre organ has begun to come back to life. The video shows a test of the percussions. Note that the indian drum is not yet mounted, and that there is a lot of background noise from the blower, which is not yet enclosed. The percussions being tested are, in order from right to left: snare drum roll, sleigh bells, bird whistle, indian drum, tambourine, castanets, siren.

You Would Think

Digging through the files I found this snapshot, taken in New York City back in May. Think about it: if you truly had the power to foretell the future, why didn't you notice that you were about to run out of sufficient space to paint all the letters of the word "cigrarttes?" I mean "cigarettes."


What a Great Idea

What is worse than waking up in the morning to find that there is no more coffee in the kitchen? Don't let this specter continue to haunt you. Just subscribe to Javatruck. For a low monthly fee, a tank truck will pull up to your house each morning and pour forth gallons of the lifegiving fluid. I think they got the idea from the home heating oil folks.
