Both Alphie and I have been so amazed by the questions that have been asked of us in this thread. Very impressive questions, kudos to all of you! One of the "themes" that seems to have arisen concerns just how the Lexicon got started. What we soon realized was several things:
- I had no idea (at least not all the gory details) because I wasn’t on board until March 9, 2006
- There was no way we could adequately explain this in another chat where we were answering other questions
- In going over old information (emails, voice chats, letters) Alphie realized that things didn’t always transpire in the order she had thought
So, what seemed to be the best course of action was a podcast devoted to Lexicon history. In fact ,the history was long enough that we realized we needed to split it into two parts or you folks on dial-up would be waiting until the next ice age for it to download. So here is where Alphie explains it all (part one). I just do color commentary because I wasn’t there for most of this.
Anyway, being the technical geniuses that we both are, it should be noted that we tried to record this thing no less than five times. The first four versions had horrible feedback because someone who shall remain nameless *coughALPHIEcough* did not have the right button pushed. There is a little feedback at the start of the podcast, but it soon clears up.
