This is not a double/previous post. I actually wanted to post about the fantastic Beachcombing's Bizarre History Blog which has not been featured here before and chose the Katzenclavier [sic] post to introduce it. The fact that there has been a recent post about Katzenklavier has no bearing on my post. It may have some relevance to the previous post but as rivenwanderer said in the comments "the Strange History blog is fantastic". Maybe I should have just posted the general URL of the site but I thought I'd point out a particular post that I found interesting and let everyone explore for themselves as rivenwanderer and I'm sure many others would have. Une leçon apprise. Minor gripe - the 'original post' didn't have katzenklavier in the tags [not that that would have helped considering my cut and paste misspelling, but still].

But your post wasn't about the great new blog you'd found, it was about one post on the katzenclavier. Maybe try again?

Okay. It wasn't clear to me at all, or to other posters, that your post was about the Bizarre History Blog. Since this was about half a day ago at this point, maybe you should make a post about the BHB featuring a subject that isn't the topic of an open thread when the posting window is open for you again?

In introducing something, it helps to, you know, actually mention it.

Fair enough then, easy to do because the posts there are very interesting - dibs on

You should have written this post in third-person, beachcombing style.

I don't know these people got their katzen into klaviers, or why. All I know is that this is one of the strangest MeTas I've seen.

See, that just makes me want to post about out of spite.

Out of spite, out of mind, I always say.

I'm on a sea organ diet. When I see organ... wow, maybe I should've come up with the punchline before the setup.

'double', 'previous', and 'related' are very meta MeTa tags.

I like pancakes.

Speaking of organs. Keep your friends close, and your endocrines closer.

Three albums since 2000, according to the trivia at the Boston meetup a couple days ago.

I tried putting my katzen into the klavier and the sound was atrocious. Should have ponied up for lessons first.

Happy to do so.

I think that worked out nicely.
