The Edible BeetBox Drum Machine From Scott Garner And The Washing Machine Drummer ‘Whirled Beats’

Electronic drum setYes, they still sell electronic drum sets but maybe not for long. We’ve found two alternative percussion instruments that both have a Jubbling side benefit: one is a DIY project that may also encourage a renewed love of veggies and the other will discourage the need for clean laundry.



Maybe the key to getting your kids to eat beets is to let them play the vegetable first. The BeetBox was created by Scott Garner and uses touch to create a sound from each beet. From Scott’s website:

“BeetBox is a simple instrument that allows users to play drum beats by touching actual beets. It is powered by a Raspberry Pi with a capacitive touch sensor and an audio amplifier in a handmade wooden enclosure.”

Creating a beat and working down the food chain is a good thing.


Another beat maker moving away from the full-size drum set and into a less consuming option is the 10-year washing machine drummer in the video below:

Difficult to run the washer when it’s your kids drum set. (Yes, we know we’re stretching the Jubbling a bit.) [Wired and Laughing Squid]

The CataCombo Sound System coffin is more than likely a joke but you know some knucklehead will be inspired to actually build something like it. That’s why Jubbling is starting a new venture called MusiCasket (yes, we sell to knuckleheads). Send us a check for $30,000 and we’ll guarantee you an afterlife full of music. Need a testimonial?

Donald Trump Evicts Glenfiddich Scotch From His Properties. Glenfiddich Receives Best Testimonial Ever!

2012 Spirit of Scotland Award winners - Top Scot Michael Forbes

Top Scot - Michael Forbes (front/center)

How do you get some free publicity for your product? Have Donald Trump tweet that he’s dropping it from all of his properties. The beneficiary of the positive publicity this time is The Glenfiddich Distillery after they named Michael Forbes as the recipient of their “Top Scot” at the 2012 Spirit of Scotland Awards.

Donald Trump tweets about Glenfiddich and Michael Forbes.

Farmer Michael Forbes was featured in the documentary “You’ve Been Trumped” about the Donalds bullying effort to build a golf resort on a formerly pristine section of Scottish coastline. In the film, Donald Trump refers to Michael Forbes as the “village idiot” for not backing down and selling his farm to Trump. Now, Mr. Forbes is the Top Scot and Glenfiddich has a new customer – me.

For the record, I’m not a single malt scotch drinker; my tastes are limited to the lower on-sale light beer shelf. But thanks to Mr. Trump’s seal of disapproval, the Glenfiddich single malt is impossible to resist and I’ going to take one for the team and buy a bottle.

Jubbling first wrote about Donald Trump’s Aberdeen golf course when he tried to block a wind farm project off the Scottish coast. His opposition to the off-shore wind turbines followed his usual tactic of threats and name calling. It makes it so easy, with the holidays approaching, to wish that Mr. Trump would be visited by 3 ghosts. [Grist]

Kohler’s Moxie Bluetooth Speaker + Showerhead Is A Short-Shower Killer.

Kohler Moxie Showerhead SpeakerKohler Moxie bluetooth speaker in showerhead.Get the $200 Kohler Moxie bluetooth in-showerhead speaker and say hello to 20 minute showers. Just when we needed a shower that goes cold after 3 minutes comes one that encourages the showerer to hit shuffle and extend it exponentially. Haven’t seen it yet but my guess is Kohler’s recommended playlist for the Moxie includes “Never Stop” (Echo & the Bunnymen) and “Don’t Stop Now” (Crowded House). If Jubbling had a say, the playlist would include “I Know It’s Over” (The Smiths), “Drain You” (Nirvana), “Leave Home” (The Chemical Brothers) and “Seconds” (U2). [Gizmodo]
