Spinning drum February 10, 2011

Spinning drum. From my personal collection.

This looks a little like a limbless stick figure with some serious dangly earrings, but old-school Karate Kid fans will recognize this design as reminiscent of Mr. Miyagi’s handheld drum from Karate Kid II.  This doesn’t produce nearly the same rhythmic effect, so I wouldn’t recommend using it to learn the Miyagi family “drum technique,” but every time I spin it, I feel a pang of nostalgia and wind up wanting to dig out my old VHS of the movie.
