the drum beats out of time

Ever notice how the cursor on a computer, or the turn signal in your car (or its windshield wipers--except in Eddie Rabbit songs)... ever notice how they never quite seem to match the beat of the song playing? You'll be fooled for a few seconds--hey, they're in sync!--but then it gradually moves out of phase.

lol... I thought I was the only person who noticed that.

Greenday rules btw.

Happy Friday sweets.

If you'd ordered option code 45P3, the Metronome package, you wouldn't have this problem. All of your car's functions would take their cue from the radio.

It's Firebird day over at my place.

Put down the spliff.

Very true. I also notice this while walking with music.

I guess they're never exactly in sync though, or else they'd stay in sync.

tornwordo said...

Yeah, it would have to be the exact same beat. Even a hair of a second difference would throw it off eventually.

I never noticed it....my music is always so loud in my car, but i will pay all my attention for next time! ;-)

My walking always seems to sync up to whatever music is playing in the background, no matter how I try to walk differently. It's like being trapped in a rock video.

I didn't notice cause everyone around me is busy crying.
