    So apparently Queen Elizabeth's royal guard took time out of their busy schedule of standing around while people make funny faces at them to perform the Game of Thrones theme in front of Buckingham Palace. This is a video of that performance. You think the Queen is the one ma... / Continue →

    This is a 19th century lyre made out of a human skull, antelope horns, skin, gut and hair. I can't even imagine all the black magic rituals it was probably played at. The things it's seen! Hmm....if only it could talk. "YOU SUMMONED ME, MORTAL?" Holy shit it can! Do you a... / Continue →

    Note: Start your volume low, it's loud. This is a jazz version of the Game of Thrones theme as performed by the New Orleans Swamp Donkeys at BB King's Blues Club in New York City. I am into it. But, FULL DISCLOSURE: I've always liked the Game of Thrones theme AND jazz music,... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber Theramin Hero performing the Game of Thrones theme song on his custom built NES keytair. The NES even still functions as a gaming console! Plus it has light-up effects. The whole song kind of sounds like a phone ringing and nobody answering it. T... / Continue →

    Dammit -- keep your overalls on, this is a family concert! This is a video of Rob Scallon (of Slayer on a ukulele fame) performing 'Raining Blood' on a banjo. I have never seen it rain blood before but one time I sneezed so hard it rained boogers. That was the end of that ro... / Continue →

    This is a video of guitarist Rob Scallon (not to be confused with Rapp Scallion, who owned the Steamin' Weenie Hut on Scabb Island in Monkey Island II) covering Slayer's War Ensemble on ukulele. It was most impressive. Did you do any headbanging? I banged my head. On the ... / Continue →

    This is the $150 GuitDoorbell, a real half size guitar that gets its strings strummed every time the door is opened. So it's not technically a doorbell, because 1) not a bell and 2) doorbells are usually rung from the outside BEFORE the door is opened. This only makes sound A... / Continue →

    This is the C-3PO Star Wars action figure carrying case that's been repurposed as an electric guitar. Me? I've always imagined C-3PO crushed in a Death Star trash compactor then cut into cubes and repurposed as paper weights. Everyone knows the Darth Vader collector's case... / Continue →

    OMG, SO MANY BUTTONS TO PUSH! This is a worthwhile video (at least skip around) of Jelani Eddington performing the Star Wars main theme on one of the largest pipe organs in the world, a Wurlitzer theater organ with some 8,000-pipes. For reference, I only have one pipe. "Your... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Carnegie Hall Ensemble Orchestra performing 43 separate cartoon theme songs in five minutes. Just a bit of each song though, not the whole thing. That would have taken way longer. Like me getting dressed this morning. "You still only have one pant leg... / Continue →

    Please, no Japanese pianist jokes, this is an upscale club we're running. This is a video of Japanese pianist Yoshiki performing against a holographic version of himself. It kind of reminded me of Dueling Banjos from Deliverance, but with infinitely less inbred rednecks tryin... / Continue →

    This is Youtuber COOP3RDRUMM3R covering Ellie Goulding's 'Burn' (appropriate) with flaming drumsticks. He warns everyone not to try it themselves, but I've already got my drumsticks soaking in kerosene. I'm gonna sprinkle my symbols with gunpowder too for EXTRA EFFECT. I wan... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like the lovechild of Legion from Mass Effect and some shitty 80's rocker, the lead guitarist from robotic band Z-Machines prepares to shred...everybody in the audience's faces off. And not in a good way either -- in a BAD way. Like, it will wear those faces... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Bottle Boys (of Little Mermaid theme fame) performing a medley of video game themes (Pong, Pac-Man, Tetris, Super Mario Bros, The Legend of Zelda, Sonic The Hedgehog, Pokemon, World of Warcraft and Angry Birds) entirely on bottles. They do an amazing jo... / Continue →

    This is a video of The Harp Twins (Camille and Kennerly Kitt) performing Hedwig's Theme on dual harps. Plus they do some magic and frolic through the woods a little bit. You know, they both kind of remind me of girls from Beauxbatons Academy of Magic. Remember the little bl... / Continue →

    This is a picture of the Super Mario themed drum kit that Josh Fry just finished building. It was his first drum kit build. For reference, I have built zero drum kits, but a shit-ton of model airplanes. Anybody recognize the sprite he used for the ground? I know it's not fr... / Continue →

    This is a video of a player piano and two robotic percussionists that can produce the music and sound effects for Nintendo games as the games are being played. It makes all the games sound like they're being played in a wild west style saloon. *moseys up to bar* Howdy partne... / Continue →

    The title says it all. Whatever the title doesn't say is best kept a secret between you and I. You do know what I'm talking about, right? That thing I told you the other day that I made you promise you wouldn't tell anybody else? You still haven't told anybody, right? Good... / Continue →

    Go look at yourself in the mirror. What do you see? A giant Doctor Who fan who also plays the ukulele? Congratulations, you're one of a kind. Just kidding, there are probably four of you, but you're still way more special than anybody has ever thought I was. You know those... / Continue →

    This is a video of ballerina Amélie Ségarra destroying a piano by dancing on top of it in knife-toed ballerina shoes. Although it's a lot less what you'd think of as dancing and a lot more what you'd think of as angry stabbing and screaming. I'm no therapist, but I sensed som... / Continue →
