I’m surprised the bear knows John Cage.


#3

Does a bear use auto-tune? :poop::evergreen_tree:


#4

definitely a new twist on the old 'eats shoots and leaves…"


#5

It seems smarter than the average bear.

Was this near Jellystone Park?


#6

Bears seem to be getting smarter. Planet of the apes? pfft, more like planet of the bears.


#7

It’s only a cheap imitation!


#8

unbearably out of tune.

i’m going to bed.


#9

Someone’s been sleeping in my bed!


#10

More like Wagner.

Quite an unresolved chord.

  1. Fairly certain that chord is from his favorite horror film.

  2. This is probably pay back for a missing bowl of porridge 15 years ago.


#13

I’m nowhere near horror movie mode.

i <3 GUNS?


#14

I know that Bear, he’s a cousin of mine. That said, he’s got a bit of a tin ear…


#15

That was supposed to be the opening chord from A Hard Day’s Night.


#16

Cutest B&E evers!


#17

Such a shame a male bear isn’t called a buck, because what we have there is a cluster.

In his later years, Baloo turned his back on the popular Disney-Hanna-Barbera ‘jolly bear’ stereotype, and became more daring and experimental. His work was rarely performed, and little known, with the exception of one opus consisting of a single mournful, elegiac note cluster on the piano, titled “Where the fuck does she keep the Snickers?”. This became a brief internet sensation when the composer appeared on a security camera, played it once, stared at his audience behind the the camera, then walked off in silence.

Music - reduced to the bare necessities.

I thought he was creating his own edgy 1970’s style minimalist heist movie score. It certainly upped the tension.
