    ROCK 'n' ROLL HIGH SCHOOL & JBL speakers are deadly to mice...

    There is a scene in the film, Rock 'N' Roll High School, in which a laboratory mouse spontaneously explodes upon being exposed to the music of The Ramones.

    And the speaker used to detonate that mouse with? a JBL L100.

    While this movie is not as funny as "This is spinal Tap".
    It is still well worth going out and renting.

    Mystic Pixie spot for M&M M-Azing Candy Bar

    I mentioned on page 2 that this was on TV...now I found a web version.

    Quicktime link...look behind the flexible girl...looks to be an L100 on an angled stand

    Steely Dan and JBL

    For those not in the know, there's a series of DVD's called "Classic Albums" where they get a band and everyone involved back in the studio to talk about really key albums of their career. Netflix has most of them and I've seen probably 10 or 12. The standouts include:

    Steely Dan - Aja
    Stevie Wonder - Songs in the Key of Life
    FleetWood Mac - Rumours

    It's great to see them sit down at the board and go through a song with you to point out different things.


    Check 'em out - they are worth watching !

    In the Steely Dan AJA DVD you will notice "a few" L100's (or similar) in the studio of former band member guitar player Denny Diaz.

    I think those are L150's or 220's. They are large floor-standing 4-ways as I recall. It's great hearing him describe Aja as a song that is almost impossible to play on a guitar.
    Then he plays it and you can see the difficulty with the large open voicings.

    Must be time for me to watch that one again

    "Young Frankenstein"

    Anyone recall the "Young Frankenstein" ads that Community Sound ran?

    They try and lure the monster back to the castle by broadcasting Chloris Leachman's violin through a couple of Altec Giant Voice drivers "Y-ed" into one of Community's big straight horn on a pole. (At least that's how I remember it)

    Eddie and the Cruisers Altec shot

    I beleive the "Season in Hell"(the bands second album and the source of the dreaded missing master tapes) segment starts with the camera pulling away from the flair of an A7,as the opening bars of the song are heard.Pretty good movie to play through the "ol home theater rig"!Another good watch/listen is "The Commitments".Great soundtrack!!!!!!

    "white woofers" appearing.

    No offence meant, but that rather looks like a Black & Decker table saw.

    Yeah, I liked the music, but the movie was all "f---in" this and that and it ruined half the show. Not all Irishmen spew like that, far as I know.

    Is this Fleetwood Mac show similar in any manner to the pledge week special that runs on PBS stations occasionally? Mick's demonstration of the layering on that album was one of the most incredible things I have seen in any documentary about a band or concert show...I'm still finding more stuff every time I listen to it!

    I believe Steely Dan's sequencer on Gaucho is named Wendell, but don't quote me on that...been a while.

    Now wait a minute...are we talking about the movie, or did you just take umberage thinking I have something against B&O? I don't, it was a casual observation, and I wouldn't mean to rile you. Sorry.

    Do Electronics Count ?

    Just thought I would mention an Altec mixer shown during the Los Angeles radio station scene in the movie "That Thing You Do".

    Also shown were Altec microphones and a V.O.T. enclosure.

    I believe I remember seeing a set of large format Cabaret Series (4698 or 4699) in a Janet Jackson video ("Rhythm Nation" or a song from the disc).

    Cool 20/20

    Last night on 20/20 John Stossel was in the control room of the studio and over his right shoulder was a JBL 4208 in all its JBL Pro glory.
