Offbeat: Techno Jeep: A stroke of musical brilliance in the form of a SUV

  • It takes an insanely creative mind to come up with something this randomly beautiful, and Julian Smith (in the driver’s seat) apparently fits the bill.

He hopes to get it on Broadway. Just like Ronnie says, be my little baby. source
