I’m sorry for inflicting Oprah on you, but it’s worth it

Now, if you’ll excuse me while I take care of other important business now so that I may better serve you later. For now, please know that later I will be partaking of Erica’s chocolate rugelach and Dr. Brown’s diet creme soda, both purchased at Fairway this morning after I rocked the vote (I cannot get that stupid phrase out of my head, and I fear that it’s going to pop out of my mouth, aloud, sometime today, and I will never be able to forgive myself), after waiting in a line that was longer than any I’ve ever seen at Fairway, which in itself is an accomplishment.

  1. You know, if Jeremy is really hard up, I have a friend with an old Korg T-3 synthesizer who, you know, leans in that direction. I can’t even tell you how many times T-3 tried to put the moves on me.
    Okay, yes I can tell you. It was seven times.

  2. About the Moog synthesizer (very clever, D’s), OH the background of THAT instrument: The true pioneer of the Moog Synthesizer was Wendy Carlos (born WALTER Carlos). I don’t mean to make this about prurient gossip, but it was by far the most interesting (and yes, admittedly gossipy) tidbit I learned at University in “Writing in the Style of J.S. Bach” class.

    Her first albums, pre-sex-change, were released under the name Walter Carlos (this includes Switched-On Bach and Switched-On Bach II).

    Using the Moog synthesizer, incidentally, was NOTHING like using a “synthesizer” now. Evidently it was a bitch – a time-consuming, complicated process. But that’s neither here nor there when it comes to sex changes.

    By the time she released Switched-On Brandenburgs, she was Wendy Carlos. So there you go. Synthesizers, in general, must be innately sexual. Or something.
