From the land of my forefathers comes the tokyoplastic drum machine. My sister passed along this link. If you have a few minutes to spare, this is a cool website to poke around. For the drum machine, click on the Japanese characters under 'enter tokyoplastic', then click around until you get to the venus flytrap, then click on the flytrap titled 'drum machine'. You'll need to click on character, squares, or the Japanese flag when it seems to stall to keep moving to the next stage. The whole thing reminds me of the taiko drummers that we saw every year as a kid at the Ginza Holiday Festival. The dark grey creature with the tenticles in the bottom left corner also has a cool percussion short. Hope you like it.
