Looking for an inexspensive synthesizer for distorting the human voice.?

I run the sound system at our church and want to have a little fun with the Pastor and others.  Since I may not get to play with this too much before it gets taken away, inexspensive is good.

What Is Your Favorite Genre Of Music

What is your favorite genre of music? Who is your favorite artist? What is your favorite song? This is basically my attempt in seeing how many people like what type of music and if rap is becoming more popular than anything else (it's all I see on TV anymore). Please answer these questions or ask more about music in general here. This will also help me get to know you all better and hopefully cause more people to join this group.

I got this e-mail from my mom, Enjoy. How many dogs does it take to change a light bulb? 1. Golden Retriever: The sun is shining, the day is young, we've got our whole lives ahead of us, and you're inside worrying about a stupid burned out bulb? 2. Border Collie: Just one. And then I'll replace any wiring that's not up to code. 3. Dachshund: You know I can't reach that stupid lamp! 4. Rottweiler: Make me. 5. Boxer: Who cares? I can still play with my squeaky toys in the dark. 6. Lab: Oh, me, me!!!!! Pleeeeeeeeeze let me change the light bulb! Can I? Can I? Huh? Huh? Huh? Can I? Pleeeeeeeeeze, please, please, please! 7. German Shepherd: I'll change it as soon as I've led these people from the dark, check to make sure I haven't missed any, and make just one more perimeter patrol to see that no one has tried to take advantage of the situation 8. Jack Russell Terrier: I'll just pop it in while I'm bouncing off the walls and furniture. 9. Old English Sheep Dog: Light bulb? I'm sorry, but I don't see a light bulb! 10. Cocker Spaniel: Why change it? I can still pee on the carpet in the dark. 11. Chihuahua : Yo quiero Taco Bulb. Or "We don't need no stinking light bulb." 12. Greyhound: It isn't moving. Who cares? 13. Australian Shepherd: First, I'll put all the light bulbs in a little circle... 14. Poodle: I'll just blow in the Border Collie's ear and he'll do it. By the time he finishes rewiring the house, my nails will be dry. How many cats does it take to change a light bulb? Cats do not change light bulbs. People change light bulbs. So, the real question is: "How long will it be before I can expect some light, some dinner, and a massage?" ALL OF WHICH PROVES, ONCE AGAIN, THAT WHILE DOGS HAVE MASTERS, CATS HAVE STAFF! It had pictures, but I can't figure out how to get them off my e-mail. If anyone knows how tell me please, and i'll repost with pictures.

Dangerously Fun

Just found an interesting website I thought I'd share:'ve got a fairly small set of projects but they look pretty well done. From the About page:" provides instructions for creating various physical devices, many of which are dangerous. This information is provided in recognition that dangerous things are sometimes really fun."Amen brother!
