Birthday

Turned fifty today. Feels Odd.
Bought myself a s/h Karp Oddy as a gift to myself. That Synth came out almost fifty years too. So, Happy Birthday to ne! :partying_face:

Feel free to use this thread for your birthday too. :yum:

Congrats! Hope you have a wonderful day with your Karp Oddy. My birthday is not today, but I am going to have an amazing day with my Moog Matriarch anyway :slight_smile:

Happy Birthday! You’re not old until you literally can’t do the majority stuff anymore.

Congrats! Oh, I better start thinking about which mid-80s synth I’ll get for myself when I turn 50… :grinning:

Congrats!
I hit the 40 on saturday but haven’t treated myself yet as items on my wishlist are either too expensive (AR MKII and A4 MKII) or not available at the moment… and I‘m still waiting for a good chunk of last years tax return.
On top of my current wishlist: Poly Effects Beebo/Digit and ASM Hydrasynth (desktop). Maybe around christmas then…

Happy birthday! As long as you’re still able to lug that Odyssey around, you’re not old.

Happy birthday and have much fun with your new synth … love the Odyssey too … so direct … so versatile … so quick to change the timbre even without patch memories … :partying_face: :champagne: :cake: :musical_keyboard:

Mine is on the 1st, can’t believe I haven’t thought yet about a little present for myself. :thinking:

Enjoy your 50th! That was a big one for me, feels like a time to reflect and make a plan for the future.

51st, not so much… just felt like another day (with a surpressed acceptance of “well guess I’m FIRMLY in my 50’s now”…)

Happy 50th to you! You’re roughly the same age as a Minimoog or a VCS3. I hope you still have all of your original components intact. If not, give ‘em a squirt of De-Oxit to prepare them for the next fifty!

Happy Birthday and congrats on the milestone! Enjoy the gift and remember you are on the bright side of a decade again!

I turned 40 back in April. 1/10 would not recommend. I’m not saying it was a “bad” birthday at all, just nothing what I was hoping for. That says more about unrealistic expectations than anything else. Pandemic just solidified the fact that I wouldn’t get to hang out with friends. Maybe next year.

Enough of my whining though - happy birthday to you! May you prove that age is merely a number. I know I act less than my age all the time.
