August 19, 2008: Telemegaphone

Telemegaphone? Whazat?

Quote:
Call +4790369389 to have your voice blasted into the luscious lands of Norway. Open for business August 02 - September 06, 2008!

Telemegaphone Dale is a 23-foot-tall wind-powered loudspeaker sculpture that picks up incoming calls and projects them into the nearby surroundings. This Telemegaphone, created by the Swedish designers at Unsworn Industries, is located on a mountain overlooking the village of Dalsfjord in Western Norway. Apparently, a “massive” amount of people have been calling. The sculpture is only “available” when the wind is blowing and the line isn’t busy.

When you dial the Telemegaphone’s phone number the sound of your voice is projected out across the fjord, the valley and the village of Dale below. No answer? Telemegaphone Dale is wind powered and self-reliant. Recently however, the weather has been exceptionally calm in Dale and there has been a massive amount of people calling


Just remember, the children... remember the children.

Cue "The Lonely Goatherd" in 5 ... 4 ... 3 ... 2 ...



SPUCK  Tuesday Aug 19 06:04 AM

Funky!


If I lived in that house my 30-06 would be talking to that windmill...



FStop  Tuesday Aug 19 09:01 AM

Hmm. I suppose calling it and then playing a recording of an air raid siren would be out of good taste..



FStop  Tuesday Aug 19 09:05 AM

No, no. On second thought, Rickrolling that thing would definitely be bad...Or funny.



Sheldonrs  Tuesday Aug 19 09:27 AM

Hmmm...Megaphone + screaming, moaning porn sounds = fun for the whole family!



ZenGum  Tuesday Aug 19 09:42 AM

Why would you want that in your valley? Between the porno weirdos, air-raid sirens, rickrolling (LOL!), ads, potty-mouth teens, seriously what bloody good would ever come out of it?

Okay, just maybe, just once, something useful ... "Olaf! Olaf! Bitte Kommen zum Homen und eaten dinner mit us, yah?"

Randalll  Tuesday Aug 19 11:45 AM

I would call and play a recording of the wind.

As if there isn't enough noise pollution as is. (but the hills could be alive with the sound of music!):p

I wonder if this piece was inspired by the Mojave Desert Phone Booth. I used to call the MDPB & I still keep the number in my cell phone. I miss it. *sniff* Maybe I should use the Telemegaphone to plea for its return. "Hello down there, this is God...."



Stonan  Tuesday Aug 19 10:02 PM

I have the irresistible urge to call this up during my next Tour of Duty session...



HungLikeJesus  Tuesday Aug 19 10:06 PM

sweetwater, I just added that movie to my NetFlix que.

Ah the National Park Service can be a-holes sometimes..


Call the Telemegaphone and play machine gun fire and screaming...

You know, if this was legit (not saying it's not, mind you), the coolest thing EVER would be James Earl Jones reciting the poem at the end of, I believe it's Knights In White Satin. "Breathe deep the gathering gloom, Watch lights fade from every room..."



SPUCK  Thursday Aug 21 06:35 AM

Yeah.. I like it!

James Earl Jones counts from 1 to 10
