"I'm gonna show you how to make a Speak & Spell glitch without circuit bending. ... so you can record it going nuts."
The surreal part is that it's a British Speak and Spell, completely baffling even to the British.

It is channeling R2-D2!
“This is Donny, and you suck at Speak & Spell”
And the point to all of this is… what?
I remember we had some type of speak & spell (it had a tan case), but when you hit the divide key for math it said something in a hilarious way. I’m kinda sad now because visually the memory is very vivid, but I can’t remember the audio.
Also we didn’t play with it much because it was pretty damn loud and mom would get irritated (and I found the noise grating).
#3 – check out the modified toy orchestra ( http://www.myspace.com/toyorch ). Might not be your bag musically, but every sound they make comes from (erm) modified toys…..
They ruled when I saw them live a couple of years ago
#4 – I had the math one too! I wish i could remember what it was called. I totally remember the weird divide key sound, my sister and i could never figure out what it was saying. It’s a sort of vague sound in my memory too – something like: robot sound, robot sound – “little lens”?? Is that it, damn i can’t remember, this is going to drive me nuts all day…
I found the math one…aaaahhh nostalgia is so sweet!
He gets to the point fast.
He sounds like Bright Eyes…
