You’re kidding me, he doesn’t really mean that?
He does mean it. He’s making music for cats. He claims to have worked out mathmatically exactly what sort of music cats like.
(This project has no video, and no sample music, so I guess we’ll just have to take his word for it.)
Ten bucks for one song? Wow. Cat Music is expensive! Who knew?

Sexy suitcase? It … doesn’t look sexy. It just looks old fashioned. Is a naked lady going to jump out of it?
Documents? In a suitcase? I think you’re thinking of a “briefcase”.
I know it sounds like a nitpick, but if you bring an actual suitcase to a business meeting, you will be laughed at. And not in a good way, in a lets-fire-this-person kind of way.
None of that makes sense! If, for some reason, you needed to blast tunes at a business meeting, you’d just plug your laptop or iPad into the conference room’s sound system. (The one they use for presentations and video conferences.) If you unfold a suitcase sound system like you’re at some sort of raver tail-gating party you will not have a good meeting.
They’re not offering the suitcases as rewards mind you. They need $2000 to make just one suitcase. And if you pledge the entire $2000 yourself, they’ll mention your name on a YouTube video. Hooray.
Is your cat or dog stressed out? Either by loud noises, or just by the crushing ennui of having the instincts of a predator in a comfy suburban home? No problem! Play that domesticated beast some soothing tunes!
Oh, good point. If my cat tuned the stereo to the Country station, I’d probably have him put down.
He’s going to need his own 4gb mp3 player!
For the, admittedly quite reasonable, price of $98, you can get fluffy his own mp3 player that he (or his owner) can load up with the mp3s that he likes. Hours of non-stop doggy music, without bothering his human owners!
Rock on, pooch! Rock on.
Here’s a fun project from Andy Pokel, a music teacher in Houston :
He gave us a couple samples of the album. Here’s “You Can Call Me“.
You Can Call Me
Hussein, the crusher, the master of hearts,
The Butcher of Baghdad, the light in the dark,
He who confronts, madman of the middle east,
President of Iraq, Commander in Chief,
I’m not thrilled about these rhymes. Am I the only one who think they’re a bit of a stretch?
Let’s listen to the other one : “If I Don’t Make It”
If I Don’t Make It
I don’t know how I ever got so damn lucky.
Two wives and two sons and I ruled the best country.
Right now it’s difficult, My heart is full of grief and guilt.
Yet, I’m so proud of this nation I have built.
No matter how much the west might try to take
It’s only their own eternal graves that they make.
Oh yeah, I can already tell that’s going to go over real well in Texas.
Life Tip : If your project needs a disclaimer like this, you should probably just do a different project.
An alternative to CDs? For record stores? What decade are you people living in?
The idea here, believe it or not, is that instead of selling music on CDs, music stores should sell their music on disposable mp3 players.
Since it’s completely impossible to deliver music instantly to my computer or my iPod, this is the next best thing. I’ll just go to the store, and buy a new mp3 player that’s already loaded with the music I want to listen to!
They even have the balls to claim it’s “Environmentally Friendly”! Look :
Because your product contains, one recycled material it’s automatically environmentally friendly? Haha, Yea right!
You’re manufacturing a piece of electronics that nobody needs, packaging it, shipping it from the factory to North America, then from the warehouse to the store, all so the customer can use it once before he copies the mp3s to his iPod and never touches your device again!
It would honestly be ten times better for the environment if you left that “recycled plastic” in a landfill where you found it!
The really insulting part is that they’re smart people (one of them is a PhD candidate), they know full well that “Environmentally Friendly” is a baldfaced lie.
Ok, fine, how much does this “replacement for CDs” cost?
$45 a pop, wholesale? Fantastic.
In the olden days when you wanted to “turn music rhythms into a physical experience” you had to get up off the couch and start dancing.
No more! Now you can put on this handy bib (with patented zipper!) and it will let you “feel the catchy beats that millions of people have only heard!”. Which means, of course, that it’s going to “tap” on your shoulders.
He looks like he’s having fun.
The device weights in at a hefty five pounds, and contains no batteries, so it must be plugged into an 110v electrical outlet while in use.
