"Just a Quick Message"
It's been an exhausting week on Wall Street and my Rampage is still in progress but I wanted to pass along some information about an organ I came across online. It's the William J. Gillespie Concert Organ at the Orange County Performing Arts Center in California. I first saw this article discussing the organ's official debut at the Pacific Symphony's season opener:

It's a fairly standard review so I checked out the slide show looking for a photo of the organ. Don't bother. I Googled the organ and found its home page. Prepare yourself--this is like a pipe organ from another planet and it fits right into the surrounding concert hall. Unreal. The page is good, with photos and videos worth checking out. The best news is it's a tracker! And I never would have guessed but it's a Fisk. But it's not like any Fisk I've ever seen.

So enjoy and there's more to come later.
