It seems as though the dead tree editions of The Independent and Evening Standard may be doomed (while the i is being sold to local newspaper publishers Johnson Press)...

”We are losing a lot of people because of the Internet and we have to do something. We have to go see Bill Gates and a lot of different people that really understand what's happening. We have to talk to them, maybe in certain areas, closing that internet up in some way. Somebody will say, 'Freedom of speech, Freedom of speech'. These are foolish people. We have a lot of foolish people. We have A LOT of foolish people.”

Guess who?! :(

It seemed a reasonable guess. It is the sort of stupidity he comes out with.

The Piano Guys have just released a seasonal collaboration with Plácido Domingo (!) for a rather beautiful rendition of Silent Night - starting off with just piano and cello, later bringing in church choristers for harmony.

Wintergarten (Milky Way), the Swedish group who gave us the Musical Marble Machine, have been around for a few years - and have put similar crazy amounts of effort into their other songs (MMM alone took 14 months to build) - including building their own custom instruments. Here's 2013's Starmachine2000, which involves a slide projector used as an instrument (!), a custom-built musical box (with paper score), and even a custom-designed and built electronic instrument dubbed the Modulin. Oh, and the video includes LEGO stop motion, filmed with a laptop webcam (the laptop itself supported by a LEGO cradle).

The singer David Bowie has died surrounded by his family following an 18-month battle with cancer, it has been reported. A statement was issued on the musician's official social media profiles, asking the public to respect the "family's privacy during their time of grief". Bowie's followers largely rejected the statement as a "hoax", but Sky News reported it had spoken to the singer's publicist to confirm the news.

Feelin' pretty gutted by the news not just because of his work as an artist but his impact on society breaking down barriers.
