Obviously I'm now just trolling here, but I do want to know two things: when will you post the video and who's going to pay the shipping on my new Mini?
You spelled it wrong.
It's "BALLS WORSHIP."

I will post the video within a week, and I have not reviewed the official rules to see how much domestic shipping costs.

According to the rules, the Foundation covers up to $200 in shipping - which ought to work out to "free" for the continental US at least, and probably Alaska and Canada as well.

No, Commodore - I expect YOU to pay for my shipping!

And Auto, too! All of you! PAY MY SHIPPING!

Yeah, I'm just being silly, but there's a serious reason for it that I won't go into with strangers. Suffice it to say, I think this is a good opportunity and I don't (or very rarely) gamble, so I'm in and I hope many of you will take advantage, too.

EDIT: Regardless of your concerns or non-concerns about the beneficiary organization.
Muhahahahahahahahaha!

This looks like a psychotropic reaction. No wonder it's so popular...

Another old joke ... thanks, Jabbers ... just like the Mini, eh? And Gary Numan? And AG?

Rotten kids ...

Looking forward to the video, AG - will be interested to see/hear what exactly the mods are capable of. Let us know when it's good to go!

The upgrade doesn't include USB. There's no sequencer, or even an arpeggiator. STILL no patch saving, or even presets. I mean seriously... what's the point of this thing?

But when I found out that he was coming to Mountain Oasis, I had a sort of revelation about how interested in his music I was in 1979, even though I was a 10 year old kid. As Mountain Oasis approached, I found myself more and more excited about meeting him. When the time came, I was absolutely ecstatic. His panel was fascinating, and he is a very modest, kind, funny, and interesting guy.
When I got to meet him, he was very interested in what the BMF does. I personally had him sign this Minimoog. I also brought my own Minimoog for him to sign. As he was signing it, I was sort of emotionally overcome... and I found myself telling him I may not be the synthesizer musician I am today if not for him. He stopped in in the midst of signing and looked earnestly up at me and thanked me. It was a very cool moment.
After his performance, he and his band came up to the BMF room and hung out several times. I actually got to watch NIN with him... sitting on the catwalk, dangling our legs. It was a really amazing experience with a really earnest guy who influenced my musical development.
And probably yours. :)

His signature is on the back of the unit. If you're not a fan of his work, or he hasn't been a part of your musical development, you'll probably never see it. And, you'll have a Minimoog. A MIDI Minimoog.
Marc, I can only try and guess how you must have felt!
Everything I know and have read about Numan suggests he is incredibly humble (especially as he has aged and matured). He seems embarrassed by the accolades he receives regarding being a pioneer of Synth music, and is always quick to point out, that in his view, there were others that were doing it before him and at the time, that were much better than he was.
Very cool story though.
