Submit's working, I submitted the add n to (x) vid to test.
I submitted this days ago. It seems to be working just fine now.

I still feel like the last year or two of this stuff is kind of like going to a show expecting Eugene Chadbourne and Shockabilly, but getting the Stray Cats instead.
Although to be fair I haven't been paying too much attention.

I like a lot of synthwave stuff but this isn't really inspiring. More like a B-reel.

Anyway, this stuff is why I can't afford cool synthesizers anymore.
If I could travel back to the 90s, my god. The things I have seen.
I passed up an offer to trade a reissue pignose for a recently serviced tweed Fender Deluxe back in the 90s, because the Fender was "old." The owner wanted to get rid of it because he was driving it back home from being re-tubed and serviced the day before, hit a bump, it tipped over in his trunk and one of the brand new tubes cracked. He wanted something reliable and light.
I don't even want to talk about the number of Juno 60s and SH-101 that were lying around my practice space in the mid 2000s because one of the other bands used them and they were so cheap and easy to find they just kept two or three so when one broke on stage they could just throw it away and use a different one (happened a few times a year).
Sold my Korg Poly61m for $80 back around 2009. Last one I saw was bid up to $1100 a few weeks ago, with a couple days left.
I remember around '02 it was just downright insulting that a music store that had just opened was trying to get $900 for a TR-808.
Could have got a Triadex Muse for $80 around '06 but I was home from work that day and the owner of the shop wouldn't go above $40 so the guy who had found it in the garbage and was trying to sell it took it someplace else.
I remember in middle school a kid I knew had a '61 stratocaster that his dad had bought in college, but he preferred his Peavey Predator because the action was lower.
Fully functioning Polymoog with the foot pedals for $900 in a shop in '99, which seemed pretty steep.
I regret to say I've personally chopped up two Hammond organs with axes (on separate occasions) because at the time it wasn't worth the hassle of moving them in one piece.
Could have gotten an SGI supercomputer free from an MIT professor around 2007 if I was willing to get it out of his office, but it was the size of two mini fridges and needed to be specially wired because it ran on 240v. It cost around $1.2 million when it was new.
I could go on, but I won't.
At least I managed to score a pretty nice Juno 6 last month at a price that would have been offensively high 4 years ago but was maybe 2/3 market value for 2016. Probably the last year I'd have any chance at finding one of those for a price that's at all reflective of their actual usefulness.
For anyone who isn't ware of how stupid the guitar world has gotten in the last decade, that strat I mentioned in my previous post would be worth $15-$20,000 easily today. Probably more. I saw a beat up '59 for over $30,000 6 years ago and a refinished '61 tele with one non-original pickup for $15,000 around the same time. Both of those were no-frills mid-grade professional instrments, back in the 50s and 60s everyone used them because they were hard to break, played and sounded decent, and were common and cheap enough that you didn't have to worry about them on the road. There's a reason Hendrix would smash a Fender on stage but if he ever had to take one of his Mosrites on the road he would sleep with it in his bed.
Fucking cork-sniffer blues lawyers just want that stuff because STEVIE RAY, MAAAAAN.

I thought hotline miami was pretty cool and that's about it. Seriously fuck all this electronic genre of the week nonsense where the music almost feels like a byproduct. I can't wait for candywave, doomwave and turbowave.
