When it's my time, this is how I'd like to be laid out: Pitch antenna in one hand, and volume antenna in the other, crossed over my heart, just like this guy!

Anyone know how to make pictures display on this thread?

[large image removed, tw staff]

Bariliant Portal - the software driving the forum - scales images, and [tags] are not nestable (which is why putting the code in [b]bold[/b] above disabled the [b][img][/b] tags.) For a large image like this it is handy to include a link too so that readers can see it full sized (http://www.veronicasart.com/images/Pharaoh2.jpg).

the Loop fits so well, remember Charles in LA doing that a while ago too.
Gorgon your Bariliant markup skills are impressive.

I thank you.

It's a lovely picture - well worth seeing big - just a shame that someone bent the end of his pitch rod. I think he looks a bit put out about it, like he's working up to making a cutting remark. (Understandably - somehow the thought of having my pitch rod bent like that really makes me wince.)

Thanks Gordon, Actually, his pitch rod is not bent, it's just decorated with some bit of gold, ornamtal thingy. I couldn't resist.

You can appreciate my confusion - it is a most unusual place to put a tassel.

I wonder if he could make it spin around when he was performing.

I'm certain he could have if it was flexible enough, or had bearings or a spring mount for the antenna like a CB whip, or something. What do I know?

[i] if it was flexible enough[/i]

Gentlemen, if your performance is affected by Floppy Rod or Droopy Loop, or you even [i]think[/i] you might have an STD (Silly Theremin Disorder) call 1-800-SNAKEOIL now for a discreet, effective personal service without much snickering.

GORDON! ;) Actually, Sam Hoffman's theremin did have a droopy loop. Still does to this day.
