Burning, man: Band plans massive guitar bonfire for no particular reason

Granted, it may not be the most talked-about story in the news this week, but there's still something impressive about a 26-foot-long guitar being set on fire.

Exactly what that something is, I'm entirely not sure. But if it's the kind of thing you've been waiting for, now's the time to visit the project's Kickstarter site and get this party started.

Based on the accompanying pitch, alleged ax arsonist Daniel Danger somehow stumbled upon an extremely oversized guitar and decided it was "an object of beauty too powerful for this ugly world."

In the accompanying video, he turns out to be a pretty droll guy who shrugs a lot. "Soon it will be on fire," he deadpans. "It's gonna be fun. I can't wait. Things are gonna explode. Someone's probably gonna get hurt. We might regret a few things."

The conflagration will be used as the backdrop for a music video for the Boston-based band IDNOCLIP, which apparently has something to do with the Doom II cheatcode to walk through walls.

IDNOCLIP also has a bandcamp site where you can hear a couple of its songs, including a semi-earnest pop-punk cover of the Cranberries' "Dreams." Again, if you like that sort of thing.
