Spain by Chic Corea, Played With Electric Drills

Noah Sanderson presents this incredible rendition of Chic Corea's classic Spain, composed entirely of sounds produced using an electric drill. Stop motion and jazz just go together, don't you think?


Watching the final episodes of a show you've devoted so much time to is a tough thing. On the one hand, I'm glad the producers were wise enough to set an end date, rather than drag the series on with wacky adventures for years to come. On the other hand, having the mysteries of the Island explained takes away from what got legions of fans (myself included) into LOST in the first place. On the third hand (I have four, but only three have points to make) I do enjoy how they are not explaining EVERYTHING flat out. Call me a nerd, but visiting Lostpedia has been a part of my morning after routine for the duration of the show.

In any case, old friend of Serious Lunch, Branden Otto, is selling this kick-ass print. Fanboy/girl delights!

Congressional Republicans United In Opposition to New MGMT Album

Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KS) addresses the P4KPAC, flanked by other high ranking Republican taste-makers

Despite producing one of the most critically acclaimed debut works of all time, featuring hugely popular singles like "Time to Pretend" and "Electric Feel", Brooklyn-based musicians MGMT have encountered unilateral opposition to their follow-up album Congratulations from Republican members of the United States House and Senate. "I'm tired of looking at them, all that glammed out artsy crap." remarked House Minority Leader John Bohner (R-OH) "I heard that they're what, 25 or 26 years old? Where's all that world weariness in their lyrics come from? That's some bullshit." Reminded that the group released an unusually unique and fully realized first album, garnering praise from musicians across nearly every genre and era, Bohner replied "But they're so goddamn cocky about it. Oh, Paul McCartney wants to work with you, does he? Hipster fuckwads."

Most Democrats are approaching the new material with a level head. When asked about the album at a news conference Monday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said "Since jealousy is what is it, haters are going to hate. But come on: tell me you didn't flip your shit over "Kids" in the summer of 2008. You did. We all did. Every one of you played that bitch on repeat for like, three weeks."

Serious Lunch on Jimmy Fallon tonight!

R. Kelly is the world's greatest singer. Who knew Bob and John were the world's greatest hold-your-nose-against-your-friend's-for-a-long-time champions? This morning they bound their heads together with a belt from 1994 and took the subway over to Fallon's studio. At the ten hour mark they'll break the world record for touching your nose to your friend's nose. Jimmy is going to interview them and ask why anyone would ever spend a day doing this.

Here's a clip from the live video stream of them sitting nose to nose in the green room

Check out the Jimmy Fallon show tonight at 12:35 EST for the coverage!
