ItsNotYouItsMe "¿Por Qué No Te Lees Un Librito De Vez En Cuando?" Vintage Synthesizer & An Accidental Acid Trip Edtion

ItsNotYouItsMe "¿Por Qué No Te Lees Un Librito De Vez En Cuando?" Here’s a far-out intriguing read about a vintage synthesizer and an accidental acid trip that proceeded...

"There is a longstanding legend that Don Buchla—a pioneer of synthesizer design and engineering who created one of the first modern commercial synths in the late ’60s, and also a well-known acid head—dipped a particular panel of those early electronic instruments in LSD, so that “the person using it could lick it to get some inspiration,” as one blogger put it in 2015. Depending on the teller, Buchla either did this habitually, or just once, to a particular instrument; often, the panel in question is said to have been painted red. Now, it seems, there is confirmation that the myth is at least partially true.

The news comes from the local San Francisco CBS outlet KPIX, based on reporting about one of the station’s own employees. An engineer named Eliot Curtis recently volunteered to restore a Buchla modular synth owned by the music department Cal State University East Bay, which had been out of commission and stowed away in a classroom closet for years. Curtis noticed a strange feeling after opening and handling a red-painted module attached to the device. From KPIX:

During his repair work, Curtis opened the module and saw something stuck under a knob.“There was like a residue … a crust or a crystalline residue on it,” said Curtis.

He sprayed a cleaning solvent on it and started to push the dissolving crystal with his finger as he attempted to dislodge the residue and clean the area.

About 45 minutes later, Curtis began to feel a little strange. He described it as a weird, tingling sensation. He discovered this was the feeling of the beginnings of an LSD experience or trip.

The sensation lasted roughly nine hours.

According to KPIX, “three individual chemical tests” identified the crystalline substance as LSD, which is known to keep its potency for years if kept in a cool and dark place like a closet. It’s unclear how exactly the acid got into Curtis’s system. KPIX posits that he could have ingested it through his skin—a transmission method that acid enthusiasts tend to loudly disagree about: whether it’s even possible, or what herculean quantity of LSD you’d have to come in contact with to feel any effect. It also seems plausible that he touched the substance with his hands and unthinkingly put his hands in his mouth.

Either way, we hope he had a good trip. You can read the whole KPIX story here." -

ItsNotYouItsMe Woman Crush Thursday Is None Other Than Thee Truly Incomparable And Vocal Prodigious Celine Dion's & Her 9 Hilarious Moments!

ItsNotYouItsMe Woman Crush Thursday is none other than thee truly incomparable and vocal prodigious Celine Dion's & her 9 hilarious moments!

"Celine Dion recently appeared on the latest installment of James Corden's hit Late, Late Show series Carpool Karaoke, where she flaunted her famously miraculous vocals, but also surprised viewers at how hilarious she is.

From screaming at the talk show host for giving away her shoes, to her silly faces at the start of "It's All Coming Back to Me Now" and, of course, her Titanic moment with Corden floating in Las Vegas' Bellagio fountains, she was a hoot from start to finish.

True fans know that Carpool Karaoke is far from Dion's only funny moment. Throughout interviews, Instagram posts and more, the songstress has a natural wit to her and is just unashamedly silly. See below for eight times Dion was simply hilarious.

Dancing full choreography to Lady Gaga during Vegas residency show
Dion caught the attention of every fan at Gaga's concert in December, as the icon broke out intricate dance numbers in the crowd. Gaga later said that Dion "outperformed" her.

Her Met Gala first impressions
When asked how she felt about attending her first Met Gala in 2017, Dion explained "that I really insisted that there was a pocket in my dress," before worrying that they wouldn't let an icon like her in without her invitation card.

Singing every answer
Dion is known for turning any response into a song, and on the 2017 Grammys red carpet, she did just that. "How good it is to be a part of this," she sang when asked about the girl power of the night, touching on Marvin Gaye's classic "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)." She also did a short rendition of Maroon 5's "Moves Like Jagger."

Reviewing her fashion over the years
She hilariously tosses the photos of herself over her shoulder after giving incredibly honest critiques. "People thought it was a mistake that my suit is backwards," she said of her 1999 Oscars white ensemble. "I'm not a lunatic, I was not that late. Thanks."

Playing the "Wheel of Musical Impressions" with Jimmy Fallon
She impersonated Cher singing "Frere Jacques" and Rihanna singing "Row, Row, Row Your Boat." Most hilariously, she sang "Hush, Little Baby" as Sia, channeling the secretive songstress by covering her face with a stuffed animal and then her own hair.

Kissing Katy Perry at the Met Gala
At the 2019 event, Dion smooched Perry, who was dressed as a hamburger, right on the lips. "I kissed a burger and I liked it," the legend captioned her post, referring to Perry's breakout hit "I Kissed a Girl."

The "Ashes" music video from Deadpool 2
The clip for the soundtrack's touching ballad was complete with Deadpool breaking into contemporary dance around Dion. "We need to do it again," the superhero says at the end to the confused songstress. "It's too good. This is Deadpool 2 not Titanic. You're at like an 11, we need to get you down to a five, five and a half tops, so phone it in." Dion replies, touching her throat. "Listen, this thing only goes to 11, so beat it, Spiderman."

Gargling "My Heart Will Go On"
The songstress has performed the Titanic smash hit countless times over the years, but during an interview on German television show, Wetten, dass..?, Dion delivered an unusual rendition of the classic--by gargling water. Unsurprisingly, it still sounds really good." -

The Number Ones: Paul McCartney & Wings’ “Band On The Run”

According to one of our musical sources:

Paul McCartney & Wings – “Band On The Run”

HIT #1: June 8, 1974

STAYED AT #1: 1 week

It was supposed to be a vacation. Paul McCartney wanted to take his band someplace sunny and exotic to record a new album. That way, they could work and be tourists at the same time — the same reason every movie filmed in Hawaii has a better cast than it probably should. EMI, McCartney’s label, had a studio in the Nigerian city of Lagos, and that seemed nice enough to McCartney. He figured it would be a breezy, pleasant experience. It was not.

There were complicating factors. During a rehearsal on McCartney’s Scottish farm a week before recording started, McCartney got into an argument with guitarist Henry McCullough, and McCullough quit on the spot. And the night before the band left for Nigeria, drummer Danny Seiwell left the band, as well. At the time, Wings weren’t a hugely successful enterprise. They’d made hits, but critics had generally come to regard McCartney as a lightweight hack, at least compared to his ex-bandmates John Lennon and George Harrison. Now, suddenly, he was a lightweight hack whose band had three members instead of five, and he still had to make this damn album.

Nigeria was not the tropical paradise that McCartney had envisioned. Instead, it was a country recovering from a civil war and controlled by a military junta. Infrastructure had crumbled. Disease was rampant. And rather than relaxing in finery, McCartney had to make do with a studio that only had one eight-track recorder.

Wings had a few misadventures in Lagos. One night, Paul and Linda McCartney ignored locals’ advice and went out walking by themselves. They were robbed at knifepoint, relieved of a bag that included a notebook full of song ideas and a few demo tapes, including the original “Band On The Run” demo. And then there was the run-in with Afrobeat god Fela Kuti, who assumed that the band was in Nigeria to steal his ideas. (This would’ve been a good idea! An album full of Paul McCartney biting Fela Kuti could’ve been awesome.) Kuti confronted McCartney at the studio, and McCartney had to play him the new Wings songs just to reassure him that they didn’t sound even remotely Afrobeat-esque. (McCartney and Kuti ended up becoming friends, which is fun to think about.)

Anyway: not the ideal conditions for a pampered rock star to make something great. And yet McCartney and Wings used that pressure. They did something with it. Band On The Run, the resulting album, is easily the best non-Beatles thing McCartney has ever done, and its title track might be a best-case scenario for what can happen when you push big stars out of their comfort zones. After Band On The Run, nobody could accuse McCartney of being a lightweight.

“Band On The Run” should be a mess. It’s certainly indulgent: a three-part suite of unfinished ideas, only vaguely connected by McCartney’s own sense that he was being persecuted. “Band On The Run” doesn’t have a clear plotline, but it’s a story about a musical group escaping from jail. One inspiration had been the Beatles’ various entanglements with their own Apple label and with ex-manager Allen Klein, whom McCartney had always hated. One bit of “Band On The Run” — the line “if we get out of here” — had come from George Harrison, who’d uttered it during one of those endless Apple-related legal meetings. And McCartney had also gotten in trouble for weed. He saw that local authorities had been using marijuana arrests to persecute famous musicians, which was true enough. (They were using those arrests more to persecute non-famous people, but those arrests were bullshit across the board.)

McCartney had come up with multiple-part songs before, of course. He and Linda had even hit #1 with one of them, “Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey,” a few years earlier. This was an easy trick for McCartney, and a good use of half-finished songs. It’s the Mr. Show approach: When you can’t think of an ending for your comedy sketch, you just find some absurd way to slide it into a completely different comedy sketch.

There are three different parts to “Band On The Run,” and Wings didn’t record them all at the same time. McCartney laid down the final section with a 60-piece orchestra in London. Tony Visconti, who’d already begun his decades-long working relationship with David Bowie, did the orchestration; McCartney brought Visconti in after enjoying his work on T. Rex records. By necessity, then, “Band On The Run” is a bit disjointed, but not to a catastrophic level. All three parts have serious hooks, and even if they have nothing to do with each other melodically, McCartney knits them together with complete confidence. The narrative itself might be a bit halfassed, but the structure serves it well; when the tension of the second bit gives way to the orchestra crashing in, it really does sound like a moment of liberation.

Because half of his band had quit on him, McCartney played many of the instruments on “Band On The Run” himself. On the song, McCartney plays guitar (both electric and acoustic), bass, drums, and synth, and he sings the lead and backing vocals. He serves as producer, too. So the whole thing really is his vision, through and through, which might be why it holds together as well as it does. Thanks to that final part, with its grand orchestral flourishes, “Band On The Run” doesn’t sound like it was mostly recorded in a bare-bones Nigerian studio. But maybe the shitty circumstances have something to do with the song’s level of focus and urgency. The McCartney of “Band On The Run” doesn’t sound like a rich rock star dicking around in the studio, which is absolutely how the McCartney of “My Love” had sounded. It has more purpose.

There are plenty of people who hear “Band On The Run” as a masterpiece. I don’t. It’s too imprecise, too sloppily written, and too much of a jumble. I hear the song, instead, as a flex: McCartney, out on his own, coming up with a compellingly batshit troika of tunes and using it to open his album. (This was an insane thing to do.) And it’s a successful flex. “Band On The Run” is full of great little moments. We can argue over whether those moments add up to anything, but the moments themselves are lovely.

GRADE: 7/10

BONUS BONUS BEATS: Here’s the scene from Roland Joffé’s 1985 movie The Killing Fields that uses “Band On The Run” for maximum grim-irony value:

BONUS BEATS: Here’s Tone Loc rapping over a “Band On The Run” sample — and samples of Steely Dan, Gary Wright, Barry White, ESG, and others — on the Dust Brothers-produced 1989 track “Cutting Rhythms”:

(Tone Loc’s highest-charting single is 1988’s “Wild Thing,” which peaked at #2. It’s an 8.)." -
