Theramin Badger Doesn't Give A Ooo-Eeee-Ooooo
from gadgetmaker/musician David Cranmer, aka Nervous Squirrel whose other projects include Brian the Penguin and the Programmable Musical Pig, seen in performance with the band Nine Owls in a Baguette. Because... well, why the owl not?

I love this YouTube comment:
If someone made my corpse into an instrument and played me I'd do my best to FUCKING HAUNT AND KILL YOU.

just saying....

Regarding Brian the Penguin and the Programmable Pig - I feel sad and embarrassed that someone would go to all that trouble and end up with something so spectacularly useless. The anticlimax is unbearable. If you're going to make a gigantic chainsaw-driven mechanical rhythm penguin, film it doing something other than 'bdum - rat-a-tat - bdum - rat-a-tat - bdum - rat-a-tat'.

it's a bit more polyphonic than that:

bdum - rat-a-tat - bdum - rat-a-tat - bdum - rat-a-tat - bdum - rat----tat
GRRRRRRRrrrrrrrrrrrrrRrRRRRRRrrrrrRRRrrrRRRRrrrrrrrrrRRRRRRrrrr

If someone made my corpse into an instrument and played me I'd fucking haunt you and be the ghost in your band.

The pig was a disappointment, but how could it not be.
The badger, though- I want one of those.

I have no idea how these people got their theramin wedged into their badger, or why.

In the interest of full disclosure, I actually have a pretty good idea of the first part, although the second eludes me.

Badgers are not theremins, people!

They're not even theramins. Spell it right, and get the badgers the hell out of there.

I have a minimum quota of one misspelling every other post here.

At least I didn't call it a Thiamin.

That's one way to hear the oscillating screams of the dead.

In the theremin video there was clouds going past behind the video really fast, like they were in an airplane. Somehow made it worthwhile.
