@xyzzy Yeah! For the last 20 minutes, at least.

@erinbee i used to work as a ride operator, and one of the rides i was trained on was an antique carousel... listening to blaring carousel music for like 4-6 hours in a shift was the worst thing ever ;-; i can't believe someone would voluntarily listen to calliope music

@erinbee i had to listen to music pretty much nonstop after leaving my shifts or else my brain would just fill in the silence with carousel music

@xyzzy One of the attractions at the museum in my town is a 1900s carousel, and I could barely even stand the 10-15 minute wait to ride it back when my kid was little and obsessed. Carousel operators are the real amusement park MVPs.

years ago there was a computer store i frequented that sold a lot of Amiga stuff. they were showing off the latest audio sampler by playing a loop of about nine seconds of John Farnham's "You're The Voice". the chorus. it was on repeat ALL DAY.
