    New abstract show "Take It" by Kongos

    I found this music during a late night music search on Youtube. My ears picked up at the driving beat and musical style changes and then... a singing gorilla. It had to be done.

    New abstract show "Istanbul, not Constantinople"

    This was just a show for fun. I wanted something irreverent. Something to clap along with. Educated silliness and “They Might Be Giants” has always fit that bill.

    New laser show - Uptown Funk

    This was spun out of a discussion we had at SELEM. There were a couple of folks who had made shows to this song and dkumpula proposed we all do one and compare notes later. I don't really like pop music, but this song was not as awful as most so I agreed. I think I've managed to come up with...
