Dear Reader:

It’s Saturday evening at the United States of America.

Music Saturday time.  Taking time from my posts about politics and Transsexual / Inter-sex issues.  Almost.

Wow what a past couple weeks.  We need a break from, well, you know who who did you know what.


This actually is Music Saturday from music on Saturdays past.

During the early 2000s, our local PBS affiliate ran a string of BBC TV programmes on Saturday evenings and nights.

Darn!  My memory is fading.

I remember the humour of ‘Keeping up appearances’.

The night of comedy ended with ‘Red Green’ and ‘Mr. Bean’.

BBC shows did not necessarily follow American programing time standards for the half hour and the hour.  Either the network or the local PBS station had to fill their air time between shows with perhaps five minutes or more.

Rather than kill that time with the same incessant promos and PSAs, someone got the idea to fill that air time with music videos.

So came Animusic music videos.

Go to Animusic at YouTube:

‘Future retro’




‘Resonant chamber’


‘Pipe dream’


‘Pipe dream 2’


‘Harmonic voltage’


‘Pogo sticks’


‘Fibre bundles’


‘Gyro drums’


‘Happy light’


‘Starship groove’


‘Drum machine’


‘Cathedral pictures’


‘Acoustic curves’


‘Stick figures’


But this evening’s memory of Animusic was triggered by another series of amazing creativity and videos – ‘Marble Machine’.

Go to ‘Wintergatan’ at YouTube.

There’s a fellow who created and built an amazing marble machine that plays music – he uses 20.000 marbles, 30.000 marbles, 50.000 marbles.

He shows you how he devised his marble machine, how he had to correct its errors, how he successfully played 50.000 marbles.

Watch the creativity of this fellow playing music with a Marble Machine that he made by hand.

Amazing creativity and ingenuity!

‘Playing 30.000 marbles’

‘Playing 50.000 marbles’


‘Thank You’ to you at your Animusic and Wintergatan YouTube channels for sharing your music, providing the opportunity for me to share these memories with my social media friends and make new memories.


This also marks the conclusion of my first full week at Asia five years ago.  I stayed there from January to March 2016.

My purpose was to go to Dr. Chettawut.

Kapung Khaf!  Thank you to everyone at the Chettawut Clinic and at Baan Siri!  More memories to last a lifetime.
