Don't watch this video

It's dark, hard to follow and very odd.

But...it's the only documented collaboration of man (Sid Yiddish) and Furby "Your Emoto-tronic Friend"that I'm aware of, and certainly the only one featuring a shofar.

I bravely watched the video all the way through and can report this: the shofar toots, the Furb(ies?) beep and boop, and occasionally someone seems to be doing something with a guitar (a something that shouldn't be described as playing).

I pass this video along in my efforts to capture the spirit and adventure of Jewish music. But please don't watch it.

Hi Lamont. Well, because "It's dark, hard to follow and very odd." I was trying to be tongue-in-cheek. Please watch it if it sounds interesting. Personally, I thought the idea of the event being recorded was much more interesting than the actual video itself. I love little bits of avant-garde weirdness, but the video and audio recording were so bad that it's not far removed from watching static.
