I found that video highly arousing, I felt like a voyeur at Robin Hitchcock's wet dream.

Ugh. Good headline.

The worst part about rooting a vegetable is finding one that doesn't have an unlocked beetloader.

I don't carrot all for that kind of jam session, you never know who will turnip.

Which reminds me. I got a bag of those BBQ chicken strips and one of them made me a little uneasy...

Also, I can't stop listening to the song.

I was fascinated by the entire album. Thing is, it has aged really well, unlike most Farkers. You and I both know this can't be said of many using computers or even - gasp - hardware sequencers in the day.

Still in heavy rotation in my playlists. Except for "It Doesn't Matter", which for some reason annoyed the ever-living fark outta me. "Lost in the K-Hole" makes up for it, though.

If your vegetable is rooted then you'll have to reformat the hard drive.

That's a whine? Wow you're sensitive.

I'm just sayin': It's a wood rack with a simple RaspberryPi and some crappy samples :) I was expecting something more varied than just touching a beet simply triggering a sample at a set volume. It's not too hard to add velocity sensing nor is there a shortage of royalty free better sounding samples out there.

As it is it's about as cool and ingenious as six of those of those singing birthday tied together cards but instead there's a RaspberryPi to overcomplicate it. Wow :/

It's cool and all but if I was grading this student I would say, "Fine, good job but you can do a bit better, no?"

Listen to Wolgemut Platterspil.

They make musical instruments out of Veggies.

The drummer...he has the beet.

The funk undertones of "Lost in the K-Hole" are fantastic. My only beef is in the production. Way, way too much emphasis on the bass line, drowning out some good stuff. 
 
 I have an EQ plugin that allows me to assign certain presets to certain tracks. I want to hear it, not drown in it. I typically leave it flat but for some songs you just have to tone it down a bit. 
 
 Yes, I am an audio nerd.
