Two days ago, the Don't Worry Be Happy video made the front page of YouTube. This is very cool. People that have never heard/seen a theremin before can know what it is about. World Thereminization!

I wondered why the blogsphere was suddenly all a buzz with this video. How cool! Congrats!

I just checked... you've had an incredible 116544 views so far with a 4.5 star rating over 941 votes. What great exposure!

This is great news. Congrats to 0006.

"Don't worry" is quite inventive and fun, indeed.

You have to love accurate reporting... This story (http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/06199/706553-294.stm) suggests it's actually Bobby McFerrin playing the theremin.

My version of Video Killed the Radio Star (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-3lU3bgOgE) seems to have benefited from a sort of trickle down effect. It's had some 5000 views over the past few days (vs. a couple of thousand over the last four months).

I was wondering at first why it was getting a slew of comments all of a sudden!

Thanks for the kind words, guys!

WT!! This weekend I had a great idea. The video gaming community that exists out there in internet land covers the globe in incomprehensible ways. If we could tap into that network to spread the cause of thereminization it would be huge.

And so I made a new video!
