    The sad thing is somebody is going to believe this load of bantha pooodooo.
    Pay particular attention to the equipment list.

    The text looks like it should be read by the same guy who said, "it slices, it dices, it purees' - it will even do your wash!"

    that has got to be a joke....

    I especially like this part: "Utilizing the latest State of the Art Equipment including... arpeggios."

    I actually found this site through a classified ad on an online music directory ezine - so its no joke (well, he didn't intend it but it still qualifies as a joke lol)

    Yeah - order a CD and let's see what "31 years of pure genius" give us.

    Probably just kids. It reads like a car valeting commercial!.

    I've got to say that I wouldn't have my email addy with the word "spraybottles".

    Hilarity.

    I have to do a line by line analysis for this one:

    Utilizing the latest State of the Art Equipment including:

    "my Genius at creation" - we can only hope it's as genius as his web design.

    "Yamaha Motif ES Synthesizer"- Isn't this from like the early 90's?

    "Korg Synthesizer"- probably that cutting edge DW-6000

    "Midi keyboards"- I didn't know those were even out yet.

    "Roland Electronic Percussion sound module electronic drums"- it has a name, it's called Dr. Rhythm

    "Boss Digital mixing"- Ummmm.....yeah.

    "Dell deluxe custom Computer built for this industry"- actually, I use a Dell too, so this guy rocks.

    "musical information system"- I have no idea what he could possibly mean by this.

    "multiple midi systems"- I should email him and tell him he could use the midi to make it one big system ,

    "arpeggios"- these aren't your ordinary arpeggios.

    "multiple programs, etc. etc"- if my onslaught of multiple programs doesn't sell this deal, the etc, etc surely will.

    I don't mean any offense to this guy, just having some fun.
