little phatty is made for jeff

March 29th, 2006


Bob Moog died a few months ago while working on a project. The synth world was in a tizzy — would this be Bob’s Eyes Wide Shut?

Well, to all those who have worried and fretted and are named Jeff, this is the answer.

Little Phatty is an analog MIDI synth with glowy blue knobs. I’m not entirely certain how you make analog MIDI, but I understand little enough about it that I can imagine such a thing.

Anyway, it is my sincere hope that Jeff will purchase and love this so much that he’ll give me his keyboard.

Not that I’ve ever heard Jeff use a keyboard for much more than either playing piano or a MIDI controller for something else. But I can hope.

    “little phatty is made for jeff” — just one day after the “arrested development still dead” post, Joshua has begun talking like Tobias Fünke.

    What kind of person spends their time writing about television on Isn’t that like writing your review of a Britney Spears album on the last page of the library’s copy of People?

  3. Joshua says:

    Are you allowed to snap yourself?

  4. Jon Land says:

    Good call, Jon. This is the Tobias quote I’d like to see Joshua write the most: “Are you forgetting that I was a professional twice over – an analyst and a therapist. The world’s first analrapist.”

  5. Evan says:

    I believe Josh may be a Never Nude as well. At least I’d like to think so.

  6. Jon Land says:

    I could easily believe that.

  7. Joshua says:

    I believe there is not a single sentient entity who has not seen Evan’s wingwang.

    And I’m a “Psycho the rapist”.

  8. Evan says:

    Don’t you have a penis mightier too Josh?

  9. Joshua says:

    Is a penis mightier like a pencil sharpener?

  10. Evan says:

    I’m not sure. I just have an awful memory of you wearing jeans that were a little too tight for you.

    I actually used to be in a band where I played a moog, true story. And I can tell you this: they are straight-up hateful to play. Note the octaves on a moog — all two of them — lots of flexibility there. Also, the moog I had was monophonic. Let’s hope this one isn’t.

    I’m so with you on the glowy blue knobs though.

  12. Joshua says:

    It is, in fact, polyphonic. And this one has three octaves!

    Are you going to buy it and bequeath me your keyboard or not?

    And while you’re at it, your effects pedal? Cuz that thing’s great.
