Looks like I may have found the perfect fraternal organization from which I can express my need to contribute to society. E Clampus Vitus, or ECV, even has a chapter here in Colorado- Alferd Packer Chapter 100.

Th’ Gaussling was thrilled to discover that the Theremin was used for background music on the original The Day the Earth Stood Still, one of the greatest SciFi movies of all time. You can hear the Theremin in the scene where the robot Gort exits the saucer to rescue Michael Rennie. It has a menacing, other worldly sound. No word if the upcoming remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still with Keanu Reeves uses the Theremin. Seems doubtful.
