This song is an ode to suburban angst, which is where people move out to the suburbs to get big houses with big yards and driveways, and everything seems great until they begin to realize that there's nothing to do in the suburbs except go to strip malls and eat at chain restaurants and wait until the kids grow up and leave you.
This phenomenon is exemplified in the shop vac, a tool found in many suburban garages for sucking up leaves, dirt, nails, or whatever. When you first use a shop vac, it seems like the most awesome thing ever. But then you realize it's just a vaccum cleaner.
Please note: I (Spiff) have no problem with suburbs. I've lived in them all my life, and as near as I can tell, my soul hasn't been drained by the experience. But then, how would I be able to tell
if it had... ?
The song at the end of the video is "A Talk With George", another great Jonathan Coulton song.
The 12-gallon Makita VC4710 has a tool-actuated outlet and an automatic filter cleaning function, which activates every 15 seconds to maximize airflow and prevent the filter from clogging. Its variable speed setting let you set suction power to balance out performance versus noise, but testers say this is one of the quietest toll-activated shop vacs you can buy. Its 16-foot hose and 24-foot power cord maximize reach, and the easy roll casters make moving the shop vac around when needed a breeze.
For heavy-duty cleanup tasks, standard vacuum cleaners sometimes don't cut it. For sucking up water, large piles of sawdust or heavier objects like wood chips or nails, you'll need a vacuum cleaner that's up to the task. And that means a shop vac. Note that Shop-Vac is a brand name for a line of wet dry vacs, however, in the same way that Kleenex and Xerox have become synonymous with all tissues and copy machines, many people simply call all wet dry vacuums shop vacs, regardless of who actually made the machine.
