Well he was instrumental in helping Bob Moog invent the synthesizer and was the one the suggested that it should be controlled with a keyboard. Also he helped design the minimoog which was the artifact that lead to people like us having the tools we use today to make music and noise.




And he was playing my minimoog.






I thought you guys would think that was cool








I'll just leave you to your thoughts now.















Happy birthday EP. I hope you wish comes true.

Ah, now it begins to congeal. But I'm still not sure about the catalyst.

I don't find any point in arguing about history that may or may not have happened before I was born depending on how many birthdays I have either missed or had 1.75 times...

And it may or may not be true that another person would be responsible for an action had things been different.

But at the end of the day, without the minimoog, nobody would have any clue wtf a synthesizer was for.

They would be standing there wondering why the operator couldn't connect them with Klondike-five, six-two-three-niyun, and wishing he would stop saying 'sit down man, I'm performing a concert just now'

I wasn't arguing about Mr. Deutsch's role in synth history, although I must admit I know very little about him. I was saying that the origin of this thread was becoming more understandable.

I"m just very confused considering we have 3 knobcon threads. I didn't mean to joke if it wasn't a joke.

So Bonso, you actually went?

I have a feeling what happened is that we all ended up in the parody thread?

But that is pretty cool Clav. It's also very cool S&TG is getting some due and getting Korg and the afore mentioned Herb to sh o up at this thing. I do have to say that this is quite the big little victory for him / you guys.

It was roland not teh Korg, but you are correct it's pretty cool for him



Anyway Bonso was making fun of me because my phone double posted initially.



But those threads are frayed.

Case in point, this has been all over my facebook.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nxi7RwF ... ata_player

This guy has one video and is getting blown up by the blogs because he copied something he saw in an interview with one of the NIN guys. It really irks me how being on the internet is like being stuck in highschool sometimes and I really, really am proud that suit is getting his due. In fact I probably need to call him and tell him so.

Despite how ridiculous we all are and how we only do what we love, there will always be some perfect, bra stuffing marcy jenkins that gets the honor roll, wins the science fair etc. :lol: and why I don't know...

But nobody deserves it more that Suit! :clap: :clap: :clap:

6,000 clicks isn't exactly winning the Internet.

Emotional / tabloid clickbait and goofy comedy making funnies, with millions of views, that wins the Internet.

This is the first time I've looked at "Popular On Youtube" on a while. They have categories now like "The Daily Aw" and "Stories That'll Restore Your Faith In Humanity". This makes me lose faith in humanity, frankly... when did Youtube become Buzzfeed? :confuse:
