    This is a video of barrel organ enthusiast Patrick Mathis performing Michael Jackson's 'Smooth Criminal' in what appears to be a barn that was just ravaged by a tornado. A barrel organ is basically a giant music box that plays a pipe organ by reading a barrel with a bunch of p... / Continue →

    This is the LEGO electric guitar built by guitar maker Nicola Pavan (who traditionally works with wood). The body is entirely LEGO except for the bridge and electronics, but the neck is a regular guitar neck. Pavan added some glue and screws in order to hold everything togeth... / Continue →

    Meet Okilly Dokilly, a Ned Flanders themed metal band out of Phoenix, Arizona. The 'world's only Nedal band' is playing their first show in their hometown September 5th and mentioned, "most of our songs are direct Ned quotes." This sounds promising. The inspiration behind th... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Samuraiguitarist (previously: a Bluegrass Game Of Thrones cover) using various instruments to perform all the music and sound effects for Super Mario 3. Hey -- everybody needs a hobby. You know what I like to do in my spare time? Spare time, LOL, I'm d... / Continue →

    This is a fifteen minute loop of a man dropping a shovel which happens to sound remarkably like the opening riff to Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit', spliced together with the beginning of the actual music video. These are the kinds of videos that make me happy. Also: peop... / Continue →

    This is a video of the folks at Rhapsody Records laser-etching an uncooked tortilla to play Jarabe Tapatío (The Mexican Hat Dance). It sounds surprisingly well considering IT'S A TORTILLA. One time I poured a plate of spaghetti and meatballs on my record player and pretended ... / Continue →

    This is a video from Applied Science of a record playing under an electron microscope. Mesmerizing, isn't it? That isn't what I thought happened at all. I expected to see way more tiny wizards waving their little wands around down there making magic happen. That's not how v... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Samuraiguitarist & Jeff Gagne performing a blues cover of the Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air opening theme. They did a great job. The last minute of the video is an ad for the suits they're wearing during the performance. I do need a new suit. This one is ge... / Continue →

    Dude -- the Holy Grail is right behind you! This is a video demonstration of the octobasse, a massive stringed instrument capable of producing frequencies lower than the human ear can detect. It's the kind of instrument you feel more than you hear. I remember the first time ... / Continue →

    This is Raijin, a spherical drum kit designed by Yamaha's motorcycle division. I know, I was expecting a drum kit on wheels too. Still, I would get in there and go nuts like I was playing Dance Dance Revolution. Have I ever told you I saw a guy have a heart attack playing Da... / Continue →

    This is a video of 'pioneers of the cello music revolution' (although I'm pretty sure that happened in the 1700's) group 2CELLOS performing Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' on electric cellos (which may or may not double as laser rifles). I had no idea there was going to be... / Continue →

    This is a series of album covers designed by illustrator Rocky Davies featuring iconic villains and lyrics from the 80's. The 1980's by the way, not the 1880's. I don't know who the famous villains of the 1880's were, but I suspect they all had amazing mustaches and rode hors... / Continue →

    This is the PianoArc, invented by Lady Gaga's keyboardist, Brockett Parsons. It consists of three 88-note USB MIDI keyboards arranged in a 6-foot circle around the musician. Obviously, the design was inspired by that fat blue alien from Star Wars (Max Rebo, aka Siiruulian Pha... / Continue →

    This is a video of the George Mason University pep band practicing a Rage Against the Machine medley of 'Killing In The Name' and 'Bulls on Parade'. The chick in the red with the heart on the back of her shirt -- she really gets into it. I haven't been so excited about a song... / Continue →

    This is a video of Adelaide, Australia's 'Pipe Guy' Jake Clarke performing a medley of house/techno/trance elements along with Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" and the White Stripe's "Seven Nation Army." Jake performs on a set of custom built PVC pipes (similar to what the Blue Man Group... / Continue →

    This is OK Go's music video for their latest single, 'Writing's on the Wall'. It's constant optical illusions. Unfortunately, I have a splitting headache so it was kind of painful for me to watch, but I could still APPRECIATE it. Like a statue of a naked man at a museum, but... / 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 the very impressively constructed music video for metal band Throne's song 'Tharsis Sleeps.' The whole thing was shot frame-by-frame using individually embroidered scenes. That...sounds time consuming. Thankfully, they used a computerized embroidery machine instead o... / 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 →

    Seen here looking like he's about to take off with a homemade roflcopter jetpack, Swedish one-man band street performer Anders Flanderz performs the Star Wars theme, the Tetris theme, and a BONUS rendition of Europe's 'The Final Countdown'. Man, I wish I had a gig where I got ... / Continue →
