Quickie: Why Brown? (^_^)

I kinda remember Lias’ question last night about “why Brown?” while I was walking into my dining room…  Where I grabbed my daily gaze upon my Hammond B3. (^_^)

And, I was all, That’s it!! XD

Yes, I could have bought SL land anywhere.  I already have a lot of SL land. (^_^)

But at the same time, I could have bought a brand new Hammond XK-1 or a Roland VK-88 at less than half the price of the B3 and would have an organ that sounded just the same*. (^_^)

But, I didn’t.  Instead, I shelled out enough cash to buy a brand new Honda Civic with leather seats for a beast of an organ that doesn’t even fit up my hallway to make it to my room. (>_<)

Why?  Because it’s a FSKing Hammond B3!  I mean, one of the most legendary gospel/blues/jazz/rock organs in the history of music. =^-^=

Same goes for Brown.  That sim is SL history.  It was the Labbies first attempt at zoning mainland.  It was relatively successful.  There are a bunch of artifacts around such as the freebie suburban home and the zoning guidelines notecard written back in 2003.  That’s frigg’n legendary.  I want in on it. =^-^=

 

*Nothing, but nothing, but NOTHING sounds the same as an original B3! (=_=)

    You won’t be surprised to hear that your readers have some questions about this as an opening sentence.

        omg this thing belongs in a cathedral. What on earth do you play on it? (I have a Yamaha P-70 which i never play because it sounds horrid). I thought you taste in music was more heavy, noisy druggy stuff? You get stranger every minute

    ever had someone ask to play your organ? only to be dissapointed to find out you had that?

    and i dont know about you but deep purple was the sex drugs and booze of its time and they had some wicked organ music going.. and didnt edgar winter play one also?

    • Imnotgoing Sideways says:

      I’ll have to look up EW to be sure, but, Deep Purple was all about the B3… Plugged into Marshall stacks! =^-^=

      John Paul Jones used one a few times. Actually… It’s hard to find a rock song with organ that didn’t use a B3. XD

      Fun coincidence, Winamp just shuffled to Lolonel Claypool’s Bucket of Bernie Brains… Bernie Ward, of Parliment fame, tears it the f$&(# up on this album! (^_^)
