I wanted THIS BOX of KNOBS for my ZONKULATOR RIG
...but $250.00 = no dice.
ACTUALLY BROKE DOWN an BOUGHT TWO THINGS in HARD COLD CASH... Walter Carlos - Switched on Bach LP in fair condition = .50 cent. My Dad turned me on to this album when it came out in 1969, igniting my lust for MOOG SYNTHS. Shortly after that he brought home a SINE WAVE GENERATOR OSCILLATOR from his chemistry lab for me to tweak.
+ VGA to VGA cable = $1 - just what I needed for free dual input CRT computer monitor I just scored for FREE on Craigslist. Oh wait, it cost four bux (with dollar off flyer)to get in, so total cash spent = $5.50... and well worth it.
I ran into a ton of people at the FLEA including Jessica Rylan & Nathan Trites (flower electronics wizards) - Monte McGuire (soundman to the stars) - Larry Dersch (best drummer and dude around) - Fred Owsley (from Noise Night bending workshops) - Mike and Linda Bullock (master improvers) - Max Lord (buchla synth & percussion ninja) - Andy Ihnatko (photographer who shoots amazing mit flea pix) and met a dude who saw me and Orgy Of Noise at Multimedia Circus gig in 2009... plus nodded at Zerfalt & Asha and even caught a glimpse Adam Rosen (my fave Mac Guru of Vintage Mac Museum.) If you dig around my BTM PHOTOGRAPHY SITE you will find pix I have snapped over the years of most of these people.
Hope to make it to the next FLEA in MAY... might even grab a table and bring a pile of stuff to the party.
