Your Hammond Organ

Your Hammond organ is NuBi LE with Spinner LE Leslie simulator.

And to run that you're going to need a stand-alone VST host like Chainer.*


Then if you're using a soundcard that doesn't have ASIO drivers, you'll need ASIO4all.

If you want to add an electric piano to all that lovin', check out the 4Front Rhode.

*You could use Minihost although it will only run one VST instrument or effect at a time so you can't use the organ and the Leslie simulator together.

Mouse Haz Planz

We have secured an electric piano and costumes from the Broadway show of Tale of Two Cities.
I consider this a major coup.
My band, however, is somewhat "meh" on the subject(s).
But why, oh why hath we these accouterments of rock?
Because on Wednesday the 28th of September Tyrannosaurus Mouse is playing at Theatresource with the City Samanas as part of Vinnygenius.
We do not, as of yet, have a fan dancer. But we shall. We shall.

Thinkin' Rembrandt

Well, not exclusively maybe.
But probably, yeah. I think Tyrannosaurus Mouse should essentially do our own version of this painting:
There aren't enough of us, of course, so we'll have to be positioned somewhat differently. But I think it should be our inspiration.

Black Dog

A variety of things are awesome about this video. Including, but not limited to, the number of actual black dogs featured.

This is a mashup of an (estimated) gazillion versions of "Black Dog" found on the Interwebs.

This is what I want

I just want a nice monster puppet for Tyrannosaurus Mouse. Here is some footage from an Australian version of "How To Train Your Dragon."

Do you know what is cool?

The Tyrannosaurus Mouse guitar pick is cool.
Does it make your guitar rock harder?
Yes.
Can you play better with a Tyrannosaurus Mouse guitar pick.
Absolutely.
Will you instantly become a guitar god with one?
That's what happens. Hey, I don't make the rules.
Are they less blurry in real life?
Once you have a Tyrannosaurus Mouse guitar pick, all of so-called "real" life is blurry. The Tyrannosaurus Mouse is the only thing that's real.
Where'd you get them from?
Clayton Custom.

American Ambulance

American Ambulance is Pete Cenedella's band. I went to high school with Pete. He was the first one to play the Dead Kennedys, Talking Heads, and the Residents to me.

We also played a one-time concert at our school. We played one song. Ask me about it sometime.
