Laser beam technology gone bad...

Post by breitt » Thu Jun 05, 2008 5:58 pm

Saw this on Matrixsynth. The dumbest rip-off of all time, featuring the whitest, fruitiest actors in history. Enjoy and cringe.

Two observations... 1. Put a long goatee on the bald guy in the black t-shirt and you have a low-rent Jordan Rudess. 2. Why does this look like the kind of alien musical instrument they'd play in Star Trek: The Next Generation?

to sort of put your two thoughts together, i'm thinking: dr. evil unwinding after a long day of plotting world domination.

I read of this while on a flight. I couldn't believe it. For the price of it you could get yourself a decent starter synth and start on making music you actually create.
Well fffff.

Star Trek?? You give it too much credit! Star Trek was cool... It's more like a campy shot from "Buck Rodgers in the 21st Century". You know the one... The really bad 80's show where they dance in sync to a single guy playing a box. Oh, but then there was Wilma (Erin Gray) WOOOO HOOO!!! Love them satin tight pants she wore!!

UP YOUR BUTT W/ A COCONUT

the name should be MuZak performance System, not music

i like how the guy wears sunglasses to demo the 'rock' presets

all in all it's for people with no talent to "pretend" they've got it
