Over the last decade, banjo player Kurt Quinn has perfected his invention — the bandrum. It’s a relatively simple addition to any banjo that creates built-in percussion. Of course, he’s turned to Kickstarter to fund the first run of his instrument, since currently there is only a single prototype. But the best part is, to build 100 bandrums, all he needs to raise is…$28.
As you can imagine, drummers everywhere are at risk. As one commenter on Quinn’s Kickstarter page notes,
[T]housands of drummers will go unemployed within the next few years.
Your next Kickstarter campaign should be course teaching drummers to tune banjos, so they will have something to do.
I think I speak for all the backers when I say, I’ve been looking for something like this for years! My band has a particularly smug drummer that I’m looking forward to replacing. Your days are numbered Todd!
I think you’ll agree that it is truly…different. You’ve never seen or heard anything quite like it…
If the pictures of “parenting” featured on many stock image sites are to be believed, having kids is all bright smiles, bright kitchens, and bright clothes. But, as anyone who has kids (or anyone who has ever even seen a kid) can attest…this is all a lie.
Over at the site It’s Like They Know Us, moms with a sarcastic flair can submit their favorite, most ridiculous stock image of motherhood accompanied by an acerbic caption. The contrast between the pseudo-serenity in the imagery and the biting mockery in the commentary is perfect.
After the woman he seems to have been arguing with got out of the car, a man inexplicably decided that driving through a parking gate was a good idea. After he was through, he tried to drive back out — again with the gate in the way — and that’s when things got really crazy.
While this incident ended without any injuries, over $40,000 in damages were caused when it all ended in the most bizarre manner possible…
Anyone who’s pet has gone missing knows that it is absolutely heartbreaking — after a certain amount of time, you begin to lose hope that you’ll ever find your beloved furry friend again.
