  1. So in my other thread (http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=648680) I talked about the Conical Johnson's new low pass filter, the Xerograph and it's nameless big bro. Well this thread is all about fixing that namelessness :). Here are some details on the pedal first of all:


    A pedal this awesome needs an awesome name and that's where you guys come in. Let's help Conical give this thing a name!

  3. +1 to the Waffle Iron. That would be a very, very cool name :)
     
  4. + 2 to the Waffle Iron. Although it might constantly create a case of the munchies everytime I stomp on it or look in its direction : (

    I'm liking this one:

    Bummer that Neil Diamond already used it.

    Conical's filter will be able to quite a range of things, but if we are just focusing on the wobble aspect of it I say it gets called the "Almagest".

    [Nerd] Ptolemy's stance that the solar system (well the universe) was geocentric made for some strange movements of planets when using that perspective. They would appear to move in retrograde fashion at times and so the concept of epicycles was created to explain their motion and the "wobble" of their orbit. Ptolemy's book outlining these concepts was called The Almagest which translates as The Great Compilation.[/Nerd]

    And as long as we're talking Ptolemy and astronomy, I also like Equinox which just has a ring to it.

    Wow Jared, I thought I was being nerdy by bringing up a Gamma Ray Burster (a black hole orbiting a massive star in a close binary system, sucking matter from the star into an accretion disk, causing the matter to spin and fall so fast that it ionizes the particles and creates magnetic field lines that shoot matter out at close to the speed of light in massive jets at its poles). But bringing up ancient Greek philosopher's cosmological explanations of planetary retrograde motion, you got me beat.

    /nerd battle

    :bag:

    Yeah, I even surprised myself with that level of nerdiness.

    But I just spent five minutes talking football with a coworker and then finishing the conversation with a poop joke.

    Balance is restored to my universe.
