    This is a video of music teacher (hence the giant instruments) Tom BetGeorge's Christmas lights display. Tom says he has about 12,500 channels running 100,000 lights, and this year they're all synced to Star Wars songs (there's even a lightsaber battle). I wonder how many peo... / Continue →

    This is a video of pianist Sonya Belousova performing the Tetris theme on a custom built pinball machine inspired piano. If you're interested in winning the piano (or the one used in their Akira video, which I also posted after the jump) you can contribute to their Indiegogo c... / Continue →

    This is a video of 16-year old Japanese drumming sensation Senri Kawaguchi tearing up her drum set to a background tape track. It gets even more intense towards the end. Now I'll be the first to admit I'm not very good at telling if a musician is particularly good or not, but... / Continue →

    This is a video of 10-year old Audrey performing Slayer's 'War Ensemble' on Rocksmith. Plus her little sister CRAZY KATE (fitting) belts out some solid screaming. They should really consider taking their act on the road. Hell, if I didn't just hire a new strongman and snake ... / Continue →

    PROTIP: Start your volume low. This is a video of a guitarist recreating the cries of disgraced Japanese politician Ryutaro Nonomura. Nonomura tried to claim around $30,000 in travel expenses without providing any proof of his spending. Whatever, I would have done the exac... / Continue →

    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 →
