Apparently NASA has their own SoundCloud page - lots of good astronomical sounds!
Here's a collection of NASA sounds from historic spaceflights and current missions. You can hear the roar of a space shuttle launch or Neil Armstrong's "One small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind" every time you get a phone call if you make our sounds your ringtone. Or, you can hear the memorable words "Houston, we've had a problem," every time you make an error on your computer. For sound file use policy, please see: http://go.nasa.g...

Interesting points, but a couple of thoughts:

Music isn't as easily serialized (insert Schoenberg joke here) as is a television drama. In other words, TV has an overall plot arc that can leave the viewer expecting and wanting more while still resolving smaller plots pertinent to a single episode, whereas stopping a track/piece/song/whatever right before an important point will likely just leave the listener confused. Obviously this doesn't necessarily hold for dramatized forms like opera and musical theater, which could easily follow a more TV-like model. I'm not sure how a subscription model would work with an art-form that isn't easily serialized.

Music is also not really consumed in the same way as TV. Music is often listened to repeatedly, with favorite parts of a work (track off an album, movement of a symphony, etc.) being extracted from the whole and listened to individually. Not that this doesn't happen with TV, but one can really only watch a scene from 'Breaking Bad' for the first time once. Repeated viewings can certainly bring out things you may have missed, but overall character motivations and plot twists aren't going to change. Listening to the same piece of music several times, however, is often necessary to fully comprehend the piece and can often create a deeper understanding and enjoyment of the piece. Again, I'm not sure how that would fit into a subscription model.

Thoughts?
As record labels repeat tired formulas and watch their business model collapse, they should turn on the television to see how another outmoded industry came back from the brink.

Not to mention the subjectivity of the article's wording. To say that modern music devices sound worse is simply a matter of opinion. I, for one, think that the majority of modern television shows are complete rubbish, but you don't see me soap boxing.

Looking forward to hearing the STL Symphony perform Reich's The Four Sections and Orff's Carmina Burana

Jesus, I didn't notice Orff! I'm straining to find a relationship between the two, but whatever, what a night it will be.

You've probably seen the picture floating around of the parent's 'critique' of the common core approach to math. Here's a pretty good response to that critique.

Essentially, the original question isn't even asking for an answer to a mathematics problem - it's asking the student to critique the application of a process. The parent doesn't even bother to actually read and understand the assignment before launching into their critique - which is a great lesson to be teaching their kid. It seems to me that teaching students to analyze an algorithm and its application can't be a bad thing at all - this would help prepare them for not just math, but some of the applied math fields like computer science as well.
There have been many pictures floating around the interwebs lately that claim to be the insane mathemagical techniques required by Common Core.  The majority of these are shared on Facebook or Twitter with a statement similar...

Some people believe in continual improvement, i.e. progress. You should be specific in your critique of this particular pedagogical approach rather than simply claim the o.p. is somehow biased. That method A produced B does not mean that another method is inferior be because it is new. Such an appeal to tradition is fallacious.

Great article on why ultra-high sampling rates and bit depths are a waste of time, money, and storage space.  Simply put, CD quality sound accurately represents the range of human hearing in its entirety.
 
By raising $4.3 million on Kickstarter, Neil Young's startup shows an appetite for better sound quality. The only hitch: experts say there's little point going beyond CD quality.

Anyone know of an earlier appropriation of the 'Ring of Fire' horn line, or is this the first?

Striking photography. You can see more at his tumblr: http://matt-molloy.tumblr.com/
 
Matt Molloy is a 28 year photographer who enjoys art, music and travel. He lives on the shores of Lake Ontario and has been photographing his every day encounters with spectacular sunsets and cloudscapes for the last three years. Matt started experimenting with time-lapse sequences  by taking hundreds of photos and then digitally stacking them to show shifts in the colors and shapes that are very similar to painted brush strokes smeared across the sky.

Looking forward to this Friday when +Wayla Chambo  will be premiering a new piece of mine for flute and supercollider at the ECU Flute Symposium. Also on the concert are new flute works by a few other composers, including Sarah Summar. I unfortunately can't be there in person, but I'm looking forward to hearing the recording! Check it out if you happen to be in the Greenville, NC area.
