Saturday Matinee – Steel Shredder, Egg Cracker, Android 207, Tom Waits & Pink Floyd


Not sure why, but this kind of stuff fascinates me.

Egg-breaking machine complete with egg-breaking porn soundtrack found here.

I ran across Paul Whittington‘s Android 207 a coupla years ago. Seems to fit.

Tom Waits‘ self-accompanied masterpiece “Clang Boom Steam” also seems appropriate.

From the Utoobage description: “The iconic video was created by Gerald Scarfe initially as a backdrop film for when the band [Pink Floyd] played the track on its 1977 In the Flesh tour.”
From the Utoobage comments: “Imagine having to wait 40 years to watch your favorite band’s official videoclip.”

Have a great weekend, folks, and don’t forget that astronomy is gonna happen tomorrow night.

    My company makes boards for a competitor to the egg-breaking machine. Our boards aren’t used in one of those, just a crater/wrapper machine, which apparently also uses a candler to do some sorting of what eggs go into the crates.

    Fascinating stuff. Of course, a lot of industrial machines are fascinating to watch.

    wheels– Years ago I toured a Simpson Strong-Tie plant (they make construction hardware). Rolls of sheet steel were cut, stamped, punched and bent into joist hangers, framing clips and other connectors. BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM… the loudest noise I’ve ever felt, 2nd only to NHRA dragsters.
