3. I'm a badass didgeridooist and can play a little triangle
Not to mention I've done some doo-wa singing in the past.

4. Will you be able to do all three at once?

5. Well of course not
Everybody knows that it's next to impossible to play the triangle while singing doo-wa.

We can mix up some takes in studio, but I can't do it live. It'll have to be a studio masterpiece like Sgt. Pepper, Dark Side of the Moon, or Weird Al Yankovic in 3-D.

6. Well played.
I had my heart set on costumes though. If we're just in the studio, no one will see them.

7. Okay, you've convinced me.
But I want to be the guy second from the right. He's got some moves.

We're going to have to cheat on stage though.

8. I do a mean air triangle.
I've been practicing for years. Maybe the moment has come to show the world.

9. Your call man.
So far it's a three-piece:

Rucky on dot matrix
EastTennesseeDem on didgeridoo and doo-wa
Starry Messenger on air triangle

I'm liking this, but it needs to grow.

12. I have 300 back up singers available for that.
I can tweak the name. We're going to need a hell of a big tour bus though.

14. Do you think Printer Friendly Format has any hope of success without
an alphorn player? ;)

17. Along with the didgeridoo, the alphorn is an extremely unappreciated
instrument. ;)

19. Sometime in the next year or so, there's going to be a band with the set-up of
a vocalist, an alphornist, a didgeridooist, a trianglist, a dot matricist, and a cowbellist that will make a killing. And we're going to be kicking ourselves for talking about this in jest.

20. You're right. Perhaps we geniuses need to take our srategy to PMs.
Because if ever there were an idea waiting to be stolen, Printer Friendly Format is exactly that idea. :rofl:

22. Yeah, we'd better act.
Start slow though, with covers and such.

Imagine this translated to Printer Friendly Format:

You're in. We're going to need bigger lederhosen to fit over the costumes though.

21. And while we're at it, why not leverage our synergies to enable even greater success
Edited on Sun Apr-26-09 02:43 AM by Heidi

Anybody with a hangover wish to join on this morning? Perhaps our opening band could be named "The Walk of Shame and Sunday Mornings"...
