Fun: A few years back, I bought some “boomwhackers.” It’s pretty simple – boomwhackers are just tubes of different lengths, you whack ’em, and they make notes. Since they are tuned to the C major scale, you can easily make music. It’s a very silly and very musical toy. Here’s some of my favorite boomwhacker youtube clips:

Ninjas doing a boomwhacker Christmas.

Axel F – the theme from Beverly Hills Cop. Satisfying.


Led Zepplin?

Spencer Dorn, of Cal State Long Beach, wrote “Cylindrophoncities,” a piece for boomwhacker quintet. Very nice.

  3. In a robotics class back in high school, we made our own instead of building a robot (annoyed the hell out of the teacher). I wish we recorded our jams. We had arrangements for a lot of pop songs (mainly madonna).
