Wouldn't it be accessory to murder if you helped hide or cover up the crime in any way?

If you mean the colour usually referred to as butterscotch blonde (a much more tasty-sounding name) then yes they are! I also fancy white Teles, but it's been documented that I have a thing for white guitars. a-hard-days-night-john-6

I do really love butterscotch blonde Teles (I didn't know that's what the colour is called! Thanks!), but I was refering to actual yellow ones, like this:

Today, the 4th day of the year, is the day that the UK's top bosses will have already been paid more than the average UK annual income.

It's "Fat Cat Thursday"!

Incorrect, I'm afraid. The cash register effect used by Roger Waters was from the 1964 Jac Holzman (founder of Elektra) album, Authentic Sound Effects Volume 2. Side 2, track 20: Cash Register, Old Crank Type.

Oops, i read it on Wikipedia and assumed it was right because Wikipedia is typically right.

Wikipedia said
On the second session the studio store cupboard was ransacked for special effects, which included chains, a ship's bell, tap dancing mats, whistles, hooters, waves, a tin bath filled with water, wind, and thunderstorm machines, as well as a cash register, which was later used on Pink Floyd's song "Money" (1973).

Either they were referring to this record or it's a mistake on Wikipedia's part.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

The first American to learn of Josef Stalin's death was...

Johnny Cash

During his military service, he served with 12th Radio Squadron Mobile of the U.S. Air Force Security Service at Landsberg, West Germany. As a staff sergeant on the night of Stalin's death, it was he who decoded the radio chatter and learnt the news, to be reported up the chain all the way to President Eisenhower.

In most modern pop songs, it is possible to incorporate the Seinfeld bass line without much tampering

Yay, I knew that!!!! I love Johnny Cash. Even more than I love the Beatles, and that's really saying something. He also bought his first guitar while he was in Germany.

I heard from the Seinfeld DVD extras that the bass on the Seinfeld theme was a keyboard and not an actual bass. It was something I never thought about until I heard it, but now I don't know why I didn't realize before.

I’ve got a vintage Roland Keyboard with an almost identical Bass sound. The velocity sensors give a really funky sound when you pound the keys.
