(back) Subject: Space Organs??? From: Richard Schneider <arpncorn@dave-world.net> Date: Fri, 03 Oct 1997 04:35:33 -0700   Good early morning, Pipe-Chatters. . .   How on earth did this thread about Space Organs ever get started?? If we would just be rational human beings and stop and think about it for a second, we'd remember our most rudimentary Science courses and come to grips with the cold reality of the fact that since space is a vacuum, sound is NOT going to travel through it. No amount of excellent Tonal Finishing by Sebastian Gluck or "Yours Truly" would make any difference, so why bother? The thing would simply sit there (actually, the pipes would be floating around in space unless they were screwed down to the Chestwork!!) mute!   I'm some wise-guy would suggest that NASA engineers attempt to amplify it, but then the net results is that we'd just have another recording of the organ through the Astronaut's earphones, so why bother?   I guess what I'm really trying to say is that, IMHO, perhaps this thread is a new "low" for this list. I know we all need some comic relief once in awhile, but this thread is being promulgaed when when the weather is (at least in this part of the world!) still pretty nice. I'd hate to imagine what level we're all going to sink to when we hit the dead of Winter and are all suffering from the effects of Cabin Fever!   I know that this list, unlike the "other" one, is meant for the lighter side of things organic, but don't we all have more important things to do than to contribute ramblings to an impossible concept? Some doses of reality are necessary once in awhile.   But then again, I suppose this is still better comic relief than visiting the establishments of the imbibed. . .   Early morning thoughts from the Corn Patch, where some of us get up before the Chickens. . .   Faithfully, -- / ^ ^ \ { (O) (O) } --------oOOOo--------U-------oOOOo------------   "Arp in the Corn Patch" Rich Schneider SCHNEIDER PIPE ORGANS, Inc.

(aargh! and with my church name below; I must check the yellow pages for a bar with a pipe organ!) >> Even though I don't drink, this is a lovely idea.

We _hope_ however that the date given for completion in the ad is incorrect. Our contract says Winter, 1998.   Kathi

But of course you will hear it in the MIR, because there is an atmosphere in there. (At least for now)    
(back) Subject: Sorry I haven't been writting. From: krummhorn8@juno.com (Jason D Comet) Date: Fri, 3 Oct 1997 15:33:19 -0400   Hello List Members. Sorry I haven't been writting, but I'm trying to cut back on my computer time. And I'm also doing a Watertown Lyric Theatre production. (Off the topic)   I was wondering who on the list, I know it was someone from here, told me about the Peterson Orga-Plex System for detached consoles. I lost your e-mail address because my address book crashed on me for some reason.   Well, I better get down to my "baby" (I love that organ so much) and get practicing with my brand new Organmaster shoes. I love them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   I hyper right now (in a tired kind of way).   Talk to ya'll latter. (if my computer doesn't crash on me again)     Jason Comet Krummhorn8@juno.com |\ | \ O
