buddha machine...



the buddha machine is.... hard to describe.  a little plastic box that looks like a radio.  you put 2 AA batteries in, and it plays 9 different "ambient" sound loops, based on Buddhist monks chanting.  you hit a small switch to change the loops. 

it was $22 and i bought it as soon as i saw it at the record store.  i remembered wanting one a few years back.  turns out the husband did too!

it's mesmerizing and a little creepy.  i will carry it in my purse and demonstrate for all.  

for now, here's a long-ass 2 minute video that shows what the dogs think of the device.  listen with the sound on...

Could that be any longer? Gilly looks a little green!

Those sounds are based on monks chanting? I am not sure I think it's worth 22 bucks except that your dogs seemed to love it. But only at first. Maybe once they figured out that it wasn't food, they lost interest.

i'm the only one fascinated with it. my husband and dogs dislike it entirely. i'm trying to get friends on board, but it may just be my own creepy thing.

Ha, I have one too! Mike bought it at the same coffee shop! I meant to tell you that when you said you got one.
