    Just when you thought the Obama Conspiracy Theories were over……it comes back like a boomerang! Isn’t that the nature of the beast?

    Love it! It’s so great to see something that points out with humor how ridiculous the birther claims are.

    The humor flowed so naturally.

    “Humor?” “Parody?”
    If that shocking docu-video doesn’t make EVERYONE in America (even illegal aliens) into birthers, I don’t know what will.

    Now it all makes so much sense… Why did I not see the obvious… What a disaster.

    This screenshot above really made me do a double-take.
    The complex machine in the background of the “KGB agent” is a fairly rare music synthesizer known as an Arp 2500.
    A larger model was used in Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind to “speak” with the aliens.
    There’s not that many in existence and the manufacturer is long out of business.
    They were located in Massachusetts also, not Russia.

    The moment I saw this screenshot, I knew the film must be a satire. But the producer(s) would appear to have had access to a university music dept or recording studio with some history and/or resources.
    Few people outside of the 70’s electronic music crowd would ever recognize such a machine, so I can see why they used it as prop to lend credibility to the scene.
    Amusing film…. 🙂

    I always preferred the sound produced by ARPs to the MOOGs. There are some fun ARP 2500 sequencing videos available on YouTube if you’re interested in the nostalgia.

    Yes I know. I made at least one or two of them. 🙂
    (that’s as much ID as I feel comfortable providing with consideration to how harassing birthers can be.)

    As for Moogs vs Arps, this subject is akin to Fords vs Chevys.
    It’s mostly subjective. I like them both (and others) for various reasons.
    Though if money was no object, I would probably own a large Buchla synthesizer.

    But I’m happily surprised to see someone else here with some knowledge of these instruments too.

    Thanks. I was wondering what that was. Kevin Willmott is a film professor at the University of Kansas and the writer/director of the feature film C.S.A.

    I never owned an ARP, but I miss my old Moog Prodigy and Sequential Circuits Pro-One.
    I still own a Roland TB-303 (among others), and I love how nice the software emulators are today, allowing me to “use” synths I could never afford in physical form.
    I’m glad that vintage synthesizers hate birthers.

    One of my instructors had a Cordovox. That really dates me.

    303’s went up in value quite a bit, but have come down some with the economy, clones and virtual emulators.

    Yes, but birthers love vintage synthesizers because while many provide white noise, none offer black noise at all.

    Birthers would like a Cordovox. Especially the “white elephant” models. Again, no black ones made.

    He does that on purpose to fool elderly white people into thinking he’s just like them.
