True, most speakers no
good, always wreck the music smash up like 100% distortion. This universal, everyboty the
thing to know like that. Roly-Poly speakers much better, have only the music. Special
crossover allows 100% music through, present dead short to amplifier distortion. Other
speakers run your music, maybe ruin your ear maybe even dangerous. ACOUSTIC RESEARCH
speakers all sealed boxes, no vents inside. Drivers move in an out, compress the air
inside. Dangerous. These speakers always exploding, killing people because compressed air
build up inside. It's true only Roly-Poly speakers any good at all. DYNAUDIO speaker no
good, got vents in the back where all the music falls out. All the music rolling around on
the floor not go into your ears like with Roly-Poly speaker. Always you have to vacuum up
the floor dead music lying around collecting dust down there. Even worse sometimes. QUAD
ESL speaker use high voltage, all this high voltage electrcity leaking into air. Positive
ions, get you very sick. Roly-Poly speaker eliminate dangerous high voltage supply, good
healthgiving effects real music has. Roly-Poly speaker only use one driver for both
channels, for all frequency. Has one speaker, four different voice coils! New innovation!
Patented! You get all frequencies, get stereo at the same time, no explosions, no
distortion, only music. No crossover distortion! Only 100% pure whizzer cone speaker!
Cheap speakers ruin you music. You listen to music, get sick and throw up. You get sick
and die. Not happen with Roly-Poly speakers.
How To Sing
(attrib. to Memphis Earlene Gray with help from Uncle Plunky)
1. Most blues begin "woke up this morning."
2. "I got a good woman" is a bad way to begin the blues, unless you stick
something nasty in the next line. I got a good woman - with the meanest dog in town.
3. Blues are simple. After you have the first line right, repeat it. Then find something that rhymes. Sort of.
Got a good woman with the meanest dog in town. He got teeth like Margaret Thatcher
and he weighs about 500 pounds.
4. The blues are not about limitless choice.
5. Blues cars are Chevies and Cadillacs. Other acceptable blues transportation is
Greyhound bus or a southbound train. Walkin' plays a major part in the blues lifestyle.
So does fixin' to die.
6. Teenagers can't sing the blues. Adults sing the blues. Blues adulthood means old enough to get the electric chair if you shoot a man in Memphis.
7. You can have the blues in New York City, but not in Brooklyn or Queens. Hard times in Vermont or North Dakota are just a depression.
Chicago, St. Louis, and Kansas City are still the best places to have the blues.
8. The following colors do not belong in the blues:
9. You can't have the blues in an office or a shopping mall; the lighting is wrong.
10. Good places for the Blues:
a. the highway
b. the jailhouse
c. the empty bed
b. Gallery openings
c. weekend in the Hamptons
11. No one will believe it's the blues if you wear a suit, unless you happen to be an old black man.
12. Do you have the right to sing the blues?

b. you're deaf

13. Neither Julio Iglesias nor Barbra Streisand can sing the blues.
14. If you ask for water and baby gives you gasoline, it's the blues. Other blues beverages are:
b. Irish whiskey
c. muddy water
Blues beverages are NOT:
a. Any mixed drink
b. Any wine kosher for Passover
c. Yoo Hoo (all flavors)
15. If it occurs in a cheap motel or a shotgun shack, it's blues death. Stabbed in the back by a jealous lover is a blues way to die. So is the
electric chair, substance abuse, or being denied treatment in an emergency room. It is not a blues death if you die during a liposuction treatment.
16. Some Blues names for Women
b. Big Mama
17. Some Blues Names for Men
