I scored a Crumar Performer off Craigslist for almost a yard sale price. How 'bout that? I'm gonna go pick it up tomorrow. I have a soft spot in my heart for string synths. I've owned an ARP Omni 2 and a Roland RS09 at various times. Never had a Performer, but I've heard good things. We'll see 'bout that.
But anyways, I religiously look through the Craigslist postings in my area for things like this, but this is the first time it's actually paid off. I'm quite pleased.
Haven't done one of these in a while. Eric Frampton put up a bunch of pictures of his home studio here, and I thought it'd be a fun Monday Morning diversion for those of you chained to cubicles. Go have a gander. Eric has some nice shit.
And from the "hey, where'd my career go?" file. Word on the street is that Billy Squire sued the director for ruining his career. Yeah, sure. Like you didn't have anything to do with it. Right.
Max Cooper has put up masses of photos from NAMM in

Or, at least what you'd tell him to his face, because he'll plain fuck you up otherwise. Otherwise, it's the typical Summer NAMM crop of ugly-ass guitars and stompboxes. Yawn.
