I can't stop laughing at this.

It reminds me of some family and so many co-workers.

And you wonder why Canadians are fascinated by weather?

I love it when people do this sort of thing.

It makes me wonder if music really would be that different if these instruments stood the test of time instead. It makes me remember that there is music in everything.
 
I have no idea if this video stream will work outside the UK but it's worth trying because this is ace.
Orkestra Obsolete perform the 1983 hit on a variety of antiquated instruments.

+Erica Olivier  They did start singing after the 2 minute mark (remember, the original was a 7:29 long 12 inch single - singing doesn't start for a while lol).  Your point is well made though, all those things are still available. and these guys know how to play them.

This is a great idea that needs to be repeated in more countries.
 
Germany’s 62-Mile Bike Autobahn Connects 10 Cities
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/01/18/germanys-62-mile-bike-autobahn-connects-10-cities/

What an incredible idea that’s good for both Germans and their natural environment! From FastCoExist.

Germany, the country famous for its speed-limit free stretches of Autobahn, is building car-free Autobahns for bikes. The Radschnellweg (“fast bike path”) RS1 runs 62 miles between the cities of Duisburg and Hamm, passing through eight other cities along the way.

We are getting better here, but there is nothing much joining towns together and cities are a series of 'mostly' interconnecting trails.

Canada has a serious car culture, and cycling between areas is still a more rebel thing to do. Something like this would make bike commuting a more realistic notion.

I love people's creativity
 
I should have taken my ADD meds when I woke up this morning.

Things I Need to do VS Things I Want to do
-Laundry (folded too) . . -Watch The Matrix
-Dishes (after dinner) . . -Make snickerdoodles
-Sweep & Vacuum. . . . . -Nap my headache away
-Organize/Grade papers. -Play FallOut 4
-Reapply for IBR. . . . -Not have to pay loans at all

What I'll likely get done:
-Washing clothes but not folding.
-Napping.
-Organizing papers somewhat because I have to find my test manual for the state tests tomorrow.

I love it when people love an instrument enough to do unique things.
+Camille and Kennerly are talented to boot.

Never heard of them? Time to remedy that.

That is an excellent question +Gianmario Scotti, and one that is well beyond my expertise. I'm sure they are tuned differently, as every musician does, but only +Camille and Kennerly could tell you for sure.

+Gianmario Scotti Suggestive? I saw it as a literal representation of going to do some soul-sucking work, something I am all too familiar with.

As for it being a snip-it, I don't know. This gem came via the beautifully macabre eye of +Eva Halloween, who searches art examples on the darker side.
