I love machines that make art. We had to build some in college and one guy stuck paint in a disassembled tame measure and blew paint all over the class room.

This has been making the rounds but it’s a pretty good win for College Humor.

As a drummer, I’m not a big fan of the drum solo. This guy, however, is the sickest drum machine player I’ve ever seen. Shit gets real around the 1:15 mark. :O
