envision Utopia


Wish I was here…

I really dislike spam. I find I need to delete countless thousands of comments without being able to legitimatize the few that are real. So I delete the precious few that belong in a effort to have any sense of organization. Spam is the chief reason I stopped blogging. I hope all spammers feel the combined agony they cause everyone someday, just so they can understand this has no place in my utopia. If this was on my religious page it would go under a Karma entry.  Peace out friends.

I don’t think “Hank” done it this a-way…..

One thing for sure, my utopian ideal would have music of all types. I think music is definitely something special about humanity. One of our redeeming qualities for sure.

My utopia would probably not have propane tanks, but I wanted to share this cool use of an empty one. My  son’s created these things called Hank Drum’s. I think named such because some cartoon guy named Hank sells propane. But I was dually impressed. The first couple days after he made his Hank drum he made a YouTube video with it. He improved since this was done, but it will give you the idea.


So, it was so fun, I made my own Hank Drum eventually.

The reason for these in the first place is many people wanted to create a cheap version of the “Hang Drum”. Hang Drums are incredible. They are made by two guys in Switzerland. Word has it they have a patent on the manufacturing process and do not want to sell it or expand their own capacity for creating them. According to internet lore, they have enough orders to do it for the rest of their lives. At $2500 apiece, I’m thinking they are doing OK. I read somewhere online, it takes two days to make one.

Here is a sample of one being played.


I have watched many of the YouTube videos and always feel like there is hope for humanity after I do.

My beating heart.

Hello, LVS friends… I am getting quite frustrated. But I shall persevere.
This link is my son playing his Hank Drum. It is made from an old propane tank and tuned in a Japanese scale.
