Interpretations:The Edison Museum

From This Might Be A Wiki

Interpretation 1[edit]

They Might be Giants went to the Edison Musuem and made some recordings without electricity on a wax cylinder, including Factory Showroom's I Can Hear You. Apparently it's supposed to be haunted. --Pandastan 18:26, 16 Jan 2006 (EST)

Interpretation 2[edit]

I don't think there's a whole lot to interpret in this song, but there are some references that might need to be clarified. The "Black Maria" was Thomas Edison's film studio, so named by the men who worked there for its resemblance to a paddywagon. (Edison himself preferred calling it "The Doghouse".) It was built on a rotating platform so that it could be spun to receive maximum sunlight for filming at all hours of the day. --J-Gatz 22:40, April 8, 2006
