Guy Beatboxes Superhero, TV, and Movie Themes, and Tugs ’80s Heartstrings
Australian beatboxer Tom Thum has put together a medley using nothing but his voice to recreate theme songs from some of the cartoons, TV shows, and movies that anyone from the ’80s will remember. The video starts with him thanking folks for telling him his throat looks like a vagina, which is weird.

Guy Builds a Singing Furby Organ to Haunt our Dreams

The Floppotron Plays “Eye of the Tiger”
Survivor’s Eye of the Tiger will always be associated with Rocky III. After all, it was the theme song for 1982 boxing flick, in which Sly throws down with Mr. T. Given its era, it only make sense that the track would sound pretty darned good played on old computer equipment.

Fusion Electric Guitar Is the Guitar of the Future, Today

Fusion Electric Guitar Is the Guitar of the Future, Today
I’ve played a few instruments in my lifetime, but my stint playing the guitar was probably the shortest. It’s not that I didn’t enjoy it, it’s that I just didn’t have the time to dedicate to going to class and learning it properly.

Stranger Things Vinyl Record Should Only Play Upside-down
I’m a huge Stranger Things fan, and I am looking forward to the new season in a big way. I really, really, (really, really, really) hope that the second season is able to live up to the standard that the first season set.

Fallout 3 Soundtrack Album: Music to Roam the Wasteland
I’ve said before that I am a big Fallout fan. I have played all the games in the franchise, and while I like Fallout 4 the best of all, Fallout 3 was tons of fun as well.

Guy Plays Bass Guitar with a Fidget Spinner

Guy Plays Bass Guitar with a Fidget Spinner
Fidget spinners are super popular right now. Maybe I’m not the right age, but I just don’t get it. I say just stop fidgeting and learn some self-control. Apparently they help relieve anxiety though, which I can understand.

Play the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. Soundtrack from a Dorito Bag
So, what pairs well with the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 soundtrack? If you said Doritos, you’d be right. The snack chip maker is teaming up with Marvel Studios to promote the movie in a very cool way.

Rage Against the Machines Played on Toy Instruments is the Best Thing You’ll See Today
I’ve never heard of the band called “The Wackids” before, but by god are they awesome. These guys took a bunch of kids toy instruments and blasted out some awesome music in the form of a cover of the classic Rage Against the Machine tune Killing in the Name.

Westworld LP Has All of Those Awesome Piano Songs

Westworld LP Has All of Those Awesome Piano Songs
I really like the HBO series Westworld. Unlike Game of Thrones, I was able to get into Westworld right away, and loved every episode. I’m not that into the music scene, so I didn’t even realize that the piano in the bar was playing modern music until the episode where Black Hole Sun was being played.

The Addams Family LP Is Creepy and Kooky

The Addams Family LP Is Creepy and Kooky
When I was growing up in the ’80s, I stayed home by myself pretty much all summer. This was in the days before cable and Netflix so you watched what was on TV and were glad for it.

Robots Rap About Their Artificial Intelligence: Binary Solo!
These robots have mad skills bro. Robot’s Delight is a music video where robots rap about all of their great qualities to the tune of The Sugarhill Gang‘s 1979 hit song Rapper’s Delight. Yes, it’s as crazy and awesome as it sounds.

Every Instrument In This Rock Band Is Played by Rocks

Every Instrument In This Rock Band Is Played by Rocks
Last year, artist and inventor Neil Mendoza turned a hamster running in a wheel into art. How do you follow up such a feat? By creating a rock band of course. Powered by real rocks. In his latest work, Neil turned rocks into an actual rock band that plays a cover of The Beatles’ Here Comes the Sun.
