  1. Conductor

    Conductor is an album by North Carolina indie rock band The Comas. The album was recorded by Alan Weatherhead at Sound of Music in Richmond, Va. It features Herod on guitars and vocals, Gehweiler also on guitars and vocals, Justin Williams on bass and baritone guitars and Cameron Weeks on drums. The album is accompanied by a DVD, Conductor: The Movie, which was written and directed by filmmaker/animator Brent Bonacorso. Combining live footage and animation the film stars lead singer Andy Herod and his ex-girlfriend Michelle Williams of Dawson's Creek fame. It features videos for each song seamlessly blended together. The DVD also features a new song in the middle called "Bad Connexion", and as easter egg an alternate version of the movie. It's about 10 minutes shorter and some of the songs are in a different order. To access it, do the following: While on the title page of the DVD there are two choices. The first choice, PLAY, is already highlighted. If you go down one you highlight the menu that lets you view each video. Go down one more and nothing should be highlighted. This is where you will find the hidden alternate version of Conductor: hit "play". You will know you are looking at the alternate version when the beginning credits end, after the MOON, you see the soldiers running. This is right before "The Science Of Your Mind" starts. In the original version there are no soldiers.

The Standard Electrical Dictionary

  1. Conductor

    In electricity, anything that permits the passage of an electric current. Any disturbance in the ether takes the form of waves because the ether has restitutive force or elasticity. In a conductor, on the other hand, this force is wanting; it opens a path through the ether and a disturbance advances through it from end to end with a wave front, but with no succession of waves. This advance is the beginning of what is termed a current. It is, by some theorists, attributed to impulses given at all points along the conductor through the surrounding ether, so that a current is not merely due to an end thrust. If ether waves preclude a current on account of their restitutive force, ether waves cannot be maintained in a conductor, hence conductors should be opaque to light, for the latter is due to ether waves. This is one of the more practical every day facts brought out in Clerk Maxwell's electromagnetic theory of light. The term conductor is a relative one, as except a vacuum there is probably no substance that has not some conducting power. For relative conducting power, tables of conductivity, q. v., should be consulted. The metals beginning with silver are the best conductors, glass is one of the worst. [Transcriber's note: See "ether" for contemporary comments on this now discarded concept.]

The Foolish Dictionary, by Gideon Wurdz
