The Sound of Fasteners

For our last entry of the year, for our Month of Music, please allow me to introduce a new series we are putting together called

The Sound of Fasteners

So from 'The Sound of Fasteners' here is our first sound - the sound of 300 pieces of Steel 1"-14 Flex Locknuts being poured into a keg...what might be noise in a warehouse to some people is music to our ears!

Maybe I will try to add a drum beat and some vocals to it and make actually music out of it...stay tuned.

Heavy Metal

I couldn't write it better than Christopher over at This is Colossal.com so I am reposting what he wrote about Brian Mock who is, in Christopher's words, a Portland-based sculptor who is a welding virtuoso!  

Since this is music month I am posting all of his guitar sculptures, but he makes lots of beautiful sculptures so if you like these also check out his WebsiteFacebook or Etsy page.

Christopher wrote the following : 

Portland-based sculptor Brian Mock turned hundreds of discarded nuts, bolts, hinges, and forks into life-size dogs, birds, and even faithful replicas of doubleneck Gibson electric guitars. Mock says of his work:

I am intrigued by the challenge of creating an entirely unique piece from an eclectic collection of discarded objects. Giving these old, common items a new and extraordinary life as one sculpture is an artistically challenging yet gratifying process. This type of work is also designed to be highly interactive and prompt viewers to question the reality of what they see. Audience reactions fuel my motivation.
They're full of nuts and bolts, screws and washers so of course they caught our eye, but really there is so much more in them - a lot of creative & interesting things.  

Take a look at his Gibsons and Statocasters:

This one is 7 feet high!

These guitars ROCK!

January Rocks!

It's 2013!  And it's January!!
And last year we declared the month of January to be the month of MUSIC!
(Be sure to check out last years posts.)

To kick off the month, from 1966, we're introducing you to


and their album called


There's a blog called The Devil's Music which basically introduces you to old vinyls - that's where we discovered them (it's a cool blog so it deserves a mention.)

And here's the song!
It's basically sung by a robot and it's pretty adorable - the robot is looking for love.

Hey - sing along!

I'm a mechanical man,
I was built in a factory,
my serial number is 

I'm designed in The U.S.A.,
and manufactured in Japan.
Does anybody here know a
robot girl who wants to meet 
a mechanical man?

I was made out of stainless steel
to protect my brain from rust,
there's a vacuum cleaner built
into my chest that automaticlly 
picks up dust

I am 5 foot 8 inch tall
and as strong as a moving van
Does anybody here know a
robot girl who wants to meet
a mechanical man?

I can fix an automobile,
I can put up a Christmas tree,
I can milk a cow,
I can mow a lawn,
I can pour you a cup of tea,
but I'm looking for someone
who could help me to charge 
my coils,
and fill me up with bat-ter-ies
and feed me my daily oil

I would not care at all
if she looked like a garbage can,
does anybody here know a
robot girl who wants to meet a
chanical....chanical....OH NO!!!!


And lastly, here's a photo of an actual bent bolt.
