Fashion: Musical
Musical Ivan the Terrible Crown   (+7, -1)  [vote for, against]
A Monomahk crown that plays famous Chip tunes.

Scene: You walk into Circuit City with this Ivan the Terrible Crown on and somebody asks you why you are wearing it, as you are not a Tsar. So you take the crown off, twist the cross at the top to wind it up, and it starts playing Jeroen Tel's "Alloyrun". You then change a cylinder inside it with one in your pocket, wind it up, and it plays Rob Hubbard's Commando.

I have absolutely no idea what this is about, but I'm laughing all the same. +

It's about a Victrola built into a crown-shaped hat.

If not a tsar then are you a quasar?

That level of creativity is why I consider myself only a pseudo-surrealist. Croissant for the funniest thing I've seen here all month.

Since they stopped using Tsar-recognition software on the entry door cameras at Circuit City (bad PR move, really), they have to rely on their observant employees.

Mabye the cylinder, instead of having pins, would have a 500 LPI groove on it, and the crown will have a phonograph to play it, therefore you can play analog music as well. The crown looks like Krem19.jpg on Google image search. Also if you search for monomakh on Google you will get a nicer picture with a blue background.

But why, that's what I'm asking myself? In this digital age, you're talking about a wind-up record player on your head? Just so you can prove you're not a toff???

Craftmanship...Thats why. If proper watches can be clockwork, so can this hat (?).

I would have sworn, right up until I read the first few annotations, that this was 'Musical Ivan the Terrible Clown'. Would have made more sense...
-- StarChaser, Sep 11 2002

I had the same thought. Must admit, am slightly disappointed.

I thought this idea was "Musical Ivan the Terrible Clown," which would be something different entirely.

That seems to be the common thread here. [+] for the extensive abstractism for the (long-gone?) Amishman35.
