OriginEdit

Lewis Allan "Lou" Reed (March 2, 1942 – October 27, 2013) was an American musician, singer, and songwriter. After serving as guitarist, vocalist, and principal songwriter of the Velvet Underground, his solo career spanned several decades.

The Factory was Andy Warhol's Studio in New York City. It had three different locations between 1962 and 1984. It was the hip hangout for artistic types, amphetamine (speed) users, and the Warhol superstars. It was famed for its groundbreaking parties. In the studio, Warhol's workers would make silkscreens and lithographs under his direction. The Factory became a meeting place of artists and musicians such as Lou Reed, Bob Dylan, and Mick Jagger, Truman Capote. Less frequent visitors included Salvador Dalí and Allen Ginsberg.

EffectsEdit

After many long, drug filled parties, the record player now is able to slow down time, but only when a record is played on it. Like a shepard tone, time never actually stops. The longer the record, the more time slows. When the record stops, time speeds back up to normal pace. The user will experience a drug-like haze while the record player is being used.
