Born, drew a lot, made video, made music on 4-track, then computer, more songwriting, met future wife, went to art school for video major, made websites, toured in a band, worked as web media tech, discovered electronics, taught myself electronics, blogged about DIY electronics, made web videos about electronics and made music for them … and I still do!

    This thing is pure overkill. It’s not loud at all, nothing like the DIY $20 air blasters on all the haunt sites

  • GreenHornet

    Yep, I agree. It’s also a very bad idea. PVC will shatter under pressure (can you say SHRAPNEL?) Should be made of ABS instead, at least it splits open when it breaks without blowing chunks
