    That was an excerpt from “Metal Detector,” the title track from the album Metal Detector by the heavy metal band Metal Detector. Intended as a sequel of sorts to the band’s debut album Metal Detector, the Toxic Mills, NJ-based band continues down its singular path, urging the listener to seek out metal. Far from the exercise in monotony that a quick reading of the track list might suggest, the album showcases the band’s rich diversity of styles, from the crowd-pleasing “Metal Detector,” which opens the album, through the free-form jazz-influenced “Metal Detector,” to the spirited gothic oratorio finale “Metal Detector.” In all, the nine tracks are a worthy addition to the opus of band that knows what it’s looking for and how to find it.

        a detecting device, of sorts, you mean..?

        • Smartypants May 1, 2016 / 2:43 pm

          Something like a…oh gosh, I can’t remember what it’s called…

          • allein May 1, 2016 / 2:58 pm

            You mean a sensor of hard, usually shiny elements that exist naturally in the ground or in rock?

            • Gigi_the cat lady May 1, 2016 / 3:25 pm

              Something that would emit a sound when close to the substance in question maybe.

                A pedal deflector! No, that’s not it…a kettle protector?

                  Y’all crack me up! 😂

                  Silver Sensor, Iron Indicator, Platinum Plotter, Gilt Gauge?

                    Gold guide?

        I find it amusing that the ice cube is using Lifesavers (TM) as weights! The irony!
        (They may not be Lifesavers candies, but they sure look like them.)

        • allein May 2, 2016 / 4:40 pm

          I know! (And I just noticed that the bars for the weights are matches.)

    • Clairdelune May 2, 2016 / 6:22 am

      😀 😀 😀 Thanx! I needed that! Iceberg indeed 😀

    A mental detector might be more appropriate for us NTMTOMers.

    • allein May 1, 2016 / 5:16 pm

      Would it be silent or would it get overloaded and explode..?

      • Faye May 1, 2016 / 8:07 pm

        Desperate metallic beeping.

        • beemoused May 2, 2016 / 9:48 am

          Smoke and sparks fizzing out!

          • Faye May 2, 2016 / 10:11 am

            Yes!

  5. Faye May 1, 2016 / 4:43 pm

    Every comment cracked me up. I’m cracked now. If I wasn’t before!

    • 6rabbits May 1, 2016 / 6:23 pm

      Ok, got thru 20 sec. of that and several brain cells died.

    • Ricky's Mom May 1, 2016 / 6:38 pm

      Oh, what the heck.

      • Ricky's Mom May 1, 2016 / 8:00 pm

        Yay!

      • 6rabbits May 3, 2016 / 7:29 am

        I _LIKE_ Perry Gripp! 😋 I would post the Nom,Nom,Nom song, but I don’t know how😕.

        • allein May 3, 2016 / 8:38 am

          Usually if you just post the youtube link, it should work. I’d try it but no youtubes allowed at work. 🙁

    • birdcage May 2, 2016 / 10:23 am

      I had somehow managed to block the existence of that badger video out of my head …. until now.

  6. BB/VA May 1, 2016 / 8:42 pm

    Anybody else have a metal detector ad on this page? just wondering….

    • Faye May 1, 2016 / 8:54 pm

      Yes!! Me too!! How they do that? It always creeps me out. At least we should get a group discount.

      • allein May 1, 2016 / 9:00 pm

        Key words in the post itself trigger related ads, or cookies on your computer might trigger ads for things you’ve looked at recently. Big brother is watching!

    • Smartypants May 1, 2016 / 9:01 pm

      Me too! They must be like “Why are all these people laughing?” 😀

  7. Robert May 1, 2016 / 9:31 pm

    You know what they say: Every seashell has a story to tell if you’re listening…

    Who can discern the hidden meaning of Metal Detector’s message?
    Is it a spell, whose invocation would release hidden forces? Is it computer code, which, if opened in a particular program, would end an American political party’s sanity? Is it a brilliant marketing ploy, reminding us of a need we had been trying to deny? Or is it just a reminder that any word or phrase repeated often enough begins to sound slightly-off? We may only find out after it is too late . . . Meanwhile, experts advise that we stock up on metal detectors.

    The Cat is obviously singing an air from the opera “Pagliacci”, probably the one where the Clown sings about his broken heart. 😉

    • murkle46 May 2, 2016 / 9:52 am

      great tune!

    • SoccerSue May 2, 2016 / 11:27 am

      That was my theme song when I was in my first apartment in college. It was slightly larger than a box, but not much. 😛

      • allein May 2, 2016 / 11:33 am

        You just need to channel your inner Maru and it’ll be fine.

    For those who wish to eschew the limelight: a medal deflector.

    • Haha May 4, 2016 / 2:44 am

      Eschew? Bless you. 🙂

    • Faye May 4, 2016 / 6:26 am

      Yes! To both comments. 🙂🙂
