The clip above does not show the musical depth that this series goes to, both good and bad, but mostly good. It definitely doesn’t show enough Dorothy, but it does show a lot of plot, nice color, interesting shots and a lot of action. You get some deco gist, which is one of [...]
Had the idea to write about the previous owners of various music gear I’ve purchased over the years. My Digitech Whammy pedal used to belong to Tesla, supposedly.
