The Electronic Beach

random guysjerry ponzer is a regular customer at homer’s coffeehouse. one of the things we both like to do is make weird sounds on electric gadgets. last week we threw a bunch of gear into the jeep and drove to the beach at olathe lake. a few people were milling around when we arrived… by the time we had everything plugged in and droning most of them were gone. here’s a sample of what we did.

Better Than The Real Thing

thrift store monsterglenn posted this link on my facebook wall. apparently a couple of artists are blending monsters into thrift store paintings… how did i miss this?

Funky Mama

funky mamathere is a music in the park series during the summertime here in OP. tonight’s entertainment was provided by funky mama music. it was great to see little kids dancing, jumping, and high fiving each other… it wasn’t so great when some guy told us that we were talking too loud and causing a distraction in the crowd. i’m pretty sure it was the voices in his head that were the REAL problem.

Electric Coffee… YES!

laura clark made me aware of this video on facebook because she loves coffee and i love gadgets… and now i sing the coffee electric.

DIY Wifi Extension

wifi extenderafter having problems keeping my wireless roku connected to my router, i checked out my options. these guys made a video showing how to make an wifi extender with aluminum foil. i think i can do that.

The Kaossilator

KAOSSILATORjerry ponzer is letting me borrow his kaossilator… oh man… this thing is amazing. i will be uploading audio soon. thanks jerry.

Clear Lake, IA

clear lakejune was a super busy month, we went on vacation, hosted an 80s dance party for our anniversary, and did plenty of other stuff that eats up a month… so that’s why it has taken a long time to get another postcard show recorded, edited, and uploaded. we did this one while we were camping out in clear lake, ia. why clear lake you ask? it was cheaper than going to michigan and the surf ballroom is there. click here for show #6.

Cuke & Squash Debut @ First Fridays

thanks to all the folks who played vegetables with me at first fridays last night. i grabbed a cucumber & bag of carrots out of the ‘fridge, then went to the grocery store for a butternut squash, and hooked them all up to the makey makey. i’ve played carrots before, but this was the first time for a cucumber and squash. almost everybody who passed by wanted to play veggies. some girl even told me how much she loves weird stuff like this and gave me two bucks.

Snap Crackle Boom

Firecrackersexplosions are going off in the neighborhood as i write this. it’s the fourth of july. tomorrow night i’ll be the one making startling noises at first fridays because of mondo beep.
