I played that tune and my roomate commented that was just what he needed as he worked. Too bad the tunes only 30 seconds, and part of another song, I liked both but that bit deserved to be longer as he wasn't finished by the end.

That's what I thought Ronald meant, too! I've always called that "Rube Goldberg music" since I associate it with Rube Goldberg machines.

All of Raymond Scotts work is GREAT. He did a whole mess for Warner Brothers but rarely wrote anything down. Swedish group The Beau Hunks have an amazing album called Celebration On The Planet Mars where they recreate all of his tunes by ear.

I also have an awesome album by Carl Stalling, who was the guy who put a lot of the lunatic compositions together.

Minique just won 50 awesome points.

Also leave the poor tomatoes alone! Leave them alone! T____T

Correct. Smile

Although I'd never seen/heard it with human performers and wind instruments before. Thanks.

The tune's name is "Powerhouse" and is indeed by Raymond Scott, specifically it's referred to as the "Assembly Line" theme. Props to Dennis.

I say this because you can clearly see those are TOMATOES and TOMATOES ARE A FRUIT.


depends if sinfest takes place in america, where tomatoes are legally a vegetable because the supreme court doesn't understand science


They understand science just fine. It was all for taxation and customs regulation. They did not actually say the tomato is a vegetable only that it is classified as one in customs regulations.

Cucumbers are fruits too, but the US classifies them as veggies too. Everyone is always so up in arms about the tomato when there are a bunch of fruits people call veggies.

And peanuts are beans, cashews are seeds, and walnuts are kernels.

It's all NUTS! Razz

Didn't the Reagan administration try to argue that for the purposes of school lunch programs, ketchup is a vegetable? Or did whoever wrote that in wherever I saw it make that up? I freely admit that that's certainly possible.

that's more what i associate it with - the bustle of industry, rather than the actions of an individual.

but i am seriously impressed that a little girl like minique can so quickly put together a detector like that, with all the welding and electrical wiring and stuff that it would need.


i need her to come by and do some work on my place.

She probably mailed a letter to Acme off-screen for the parts, but pputting it together must have taken some skill.

She's getting an ability most of the feminist characters have in Sinfest. The Ass Pull. The ability to do anything you need to even if it doesn't really make sense as to HOW they can do it.
