Christmas With The Chipmunks

December 19, 2008

Today's Friday Flashback is brought to you by the RPMs and sound effects. Incidentally, today's Friday Flashback is NOT brought to you by the digital age - it has ruined the chipmunk sound effect as we know it. When creating pip-squeak sound effects, don't you think it was more fun to increase the speed on a record player? As opposed to say, adjusting it in some software app?

Computers have ruined everything (snicker, snicker, snort, snart!)

Christmas With The Chipmunks has been my favorite Christmas album since 1981. I owned and ruined the LP (static, scratch, skip). I owned and ruined the cassette tape (warble, blur, snap). I have owned (and still do) the CD. It's now loaded forever on the hardrive of the family PC. It's also loaded on Brutus (my ipod with 80 gigs.)
