DEAR GOD SEND THIS VIRAL!!! SHARE COOL MEME!!!

The line recording of the AS220 event is damaged
beyond repair; there were computer errors. From
the debris of technophilia I produced a masterwork
of unmitigated delight, replete with voice changes
and confused brilliance resulting in even greater
brilliance! Listen and PASS THIS ON TO EVERYONE
YOU KNOW!!! Motto: THE WORLD OF ERRORS PRODUCES
BRILLIANCE!!!

Globe bowlback mandolin, American, 1890-1900

so generally I don't play mandolin but then it reminds me
of the oud in shape. so it's tuned probably a third or so
low so the instrument doesn't buckle. and then when I
play I channel medieval, all these strange tunes coming
out, slow, fast, I don't know, they just do. they're just
weird., I mean the bowlback mandolins, not the tunes. well
the tunes aren't weird, they're like something out of
Italy or England or something. but then they're pretty
weird, I don't know where they came from, I just play them.
I don't get paid for it, but I just play them.
