No. I live in Dallas. What gave you the idea that I might be from
Indiana--Evansville, in particular? I checked to see if my company might
have a plant there--but we don't.
Now I'm all curious. Is there some rogue Lindsay from Evansville, Scourge
of the God-fearing and Bane of the West? Is he/she defiling my name?
By the way, those clear plastic, 50's-styled Martian ray-gun pistols with
the friction/inertia motor and piece of flint--you know the one that sparks
like crazy when you pull the trigger and rev it up--can also come through
on particular pick-ups. It depends on what the flywheel inside is made of.
If it ferrous, then it acts like a tone wheel from a B3. Plus, you get the
super cool effect of spraying sparks all over stage.
