(NEWSER) – Dozens of Glenn Beck fans who emerged from an event at the University of Central Florida to find their cars gone say they were the victims of a fraternity prank. They followed signs directing them toward free parking, only to later discover that their cars had been towed from a Kappa Sigma parking lot. The 53 Beck fans had to shell out $125 each at the impound lot.

The owner of the tow company says it was his busiest day ever. The Beck fans believe it was definitely a set-up, motivated either by dislike of Beck or greed. "Maybe they have a deal with the tow truck company, or maybe they got kickbacks under the table," one motorist told WFTV. Kappa Sigma members declined to comment.

New gear from Moogerfooger

MF-401 Auto De-tune

$799.00

Do the vocals on your favorite song sound like a vocoded chipmunk? Yes(?). Did you use extreme auto-tune settings in the sensitive ballad you wrote for your girlfriend, who then dumped you because, as Jay Z said, "Auto-tune is Dead". Never fear, you can now recapture the emotive intensity of your original vocal performance complete with the off-kilter, yet somewhat charming intonation for which you are known.

Introducing Moog Music's MF-401 Auto De-tune, featuring Authentic Vocal Imperfection technology, even a T-Pain vocal can be restored to its complete original character, scrubbing the pitch correction and leaving the untreated vocal in all its wavering sharp or flat glory. Results may vary, and Moog Music in no way bears responsibility for discomfort or irritation caused by the use of the MF-401.

Shipping begins April 1, 2010.

The MF-401 can be used to treat your vocals to be off-key in a variety of ways.

Presets include:

•Drunk as a Sailor

•Seattle sensitive alternative warble

•Where did all the green room beer go?

•Original Star Trek cast member attempts to make pop music

•My vocal monitor is blown, so Soundman, please mix me REALLY low

•Mrs. Miller

•Too punk rock to turn down your !#$%&*!! stage volume

•Cat in an alley under a full moon

•Tone Def

•Florence Foster Jenkins

Each preset can be adjusted to taste or lack thereof with the Warble rate, Deviation range, Emotive Overload, and Caterwaul rotary controls, allowing a virtually infinite variety and depth of vocal expression and variation.

It's time to take back the airwaves. Too long have our ears been fooled by processed, homogenized, artificially-in-tune vocals. It's time to bring back the REAL sound of performers' voices with Moog's MF-401 Auto De-Tune!

Aloha,

Brad

HAHAHAHAHA!!! Love it. And it is NOT an APRIL FOOL's joke from what I gather:

I went to gmail today and noticed that there weren't any vowels. It took me a while to realize that it was an April Fools gag.

At 6:01 am Pacific Time, during routine maintenance at one of our datacenters, the frontend web servers in that particular datacenter started failing to render the letter 'a' for a subset of users. As error rates escalated, the strain spread to other datacenters. We worked quickly to avoid a cascading failure of the entire alphabet by implementing a stopgap solution that limited the damage to the letters 'a,' 'e,' 'i,' 'o,' and 'u.' As a result, we're experiencing Gmail’s first temporary vowel outage. (We’re still investigating whether the letter 'y' is impacted and will post an update here shortly.)
