ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Need ten hours of Darth Vader's mechano-asthmatic wheeze? Look no further, for Murdock129's YouTube video has the soundtrack for your days.
10 Hours of Darth Vader Breathing
I knew he’d be winded from all that unicycling and bagpiping.
coffee out nose… XD
This isn’t so bad compared to other videos by the same person. Look at the YouTube channel. It’s like a toolkit for people who want to lock someone in a room and conduct auditory torture. 10 hours of Power Rangers?!? I’ll talk! I swear! I’ll tell you everything I know!
Yeah — I was about to ask if this was being used for enhanced interrogations at Guantanamo.
“What’choo talkin’ bout… Willis?” XD
Certainly besting Warhol’s 8 hour, Empire State building film (1964) but with a sound track and a couple of extra hours – for those of us with more patience :)
Andy would be proud.
This is very handy if you have a baby clone trooper that you need to get to sleep at night; they find this sound very soothing.
Exactly. There IS a use for this thing. I was thinking of scaring my brother. Set it up on his screen, and then whenever he gets back, it’s there, rather quietly wheezing at him. Should scare the shit out of him!
I just put this on my ipod and plan on listening to it all day. Masterful.
I think I could fall asleep to it…
Too soon, too soon.
5 hours in and still I’m wondering “What happen’s next?”
Put this stuff on your electronics for use in yesterday’s article on fallout shelter life.
This is partly explained by the 10 hour meme
though this actually almost makes sense to loop for 10 hours. unlike “they’re taking the hobbits to isengard” which is still messing with my head.
Better than the prequel trilogy.
My Dinner With Anakin
Hoping for 10 hours of “Get Pitted!” or “Willy Wonka You Get Nothing Remix.”
Personally I like this one more
This post inspired this conversation:
I had it on while I was making dinner. It’s extraordinarily relaxing! I think this is my new meditation background sound.
Without the booming voice of James Earl Jones, it’s like… aww, he’s sleeping!
there is a hitch in the loop, makes it sound like a chicken bone is catch of a tic…
Anyone watch the whole thing?
Eh, I preferred the Enterprise’s ambient noise. But I have had this on for 20 minutes. Now if you’ll excuse me, I must go meditate in my black Sith egg from Planet Ork.
nanu nanu. Seth Mork.
This is pretty much every night if you have sleep apnea.
Murdock129 here, I’m amazed by how this has spread, I really just make these for a laugh, and I’m shocked to find sites like this, comedy central and more covering this

What did people do for fun before photoshop? I don't even remember.
Please enjoy the entire blog at Tumblr (of course): Cat Scientists of the 1960s.

Phil Plait linked to this amazing photo of the Sun on the Bad Astronomy blog today. It's incredible. Like nothing I've ever seen before.
Noticed this on the street in LA this morning. Anyone know who the artist is?
Update: Castro Burger has left us a comment and is the artist behind the poster. Nice work Mr. Burger!
