When you press on the keys, does it both produce and not produce music?

/oh, Schroeder's piano...

Ya know it's really tough to put a price on one of a kind things. It's also going to take up a lot of space in my shop. I got overhead too. And it's not like people are coming in here everyday asking for a beat up 2nd hand piano......I'll give ya $100

Not subby, but this *is* a followup piece telling how much the piano actually went for.

I won't complain about additional Casablanca threads around here.

I actually know a Casablanca hater. If there's anything damn near everyone in the world agrees on, it's how awesome that film is. Yet this guy wastes no opportunity to bash it in his tired hipster fashion. I think he just does it because everyone else in the room loves it, and he's an attention whore.

I don't think I could ever trust anyone who hates that movie. Just sayin'.

That, just... awer;tjidfmvpsdfgmerthkmg.

I don't know what to say to that. I know that everyone has differing opinions on matters, and I respect that, but... Casablanca?

For seriouses?

Definitely a favorite, definitely one of the best films ever made.

Maybe it is just too good that it triggers the 'something isn't right here' creeper feeling.

Its an instinctual response that has saved many an early human from petting the saber toothed tiger cub or trusting the over smiling preacher.

For that kind of money, it should come with a couple of letters of transit inside or something.
