Outsider music is, like outsider art, made by people who are self taught and don’t try to fit in with the mainstream. Meet My Robot Friend, quirky and clever. You can learn more about Howard the Robot and the machines he works with here. Weird and wonderful!

First, the satirical Robot High School, with a fascinating video by photographer Keith Loutit using tilt-shift photography.

From the more thoughtful side, here’s a beautiful animated video by MakeMake for Goodbye, about the impending death of a lover.
