I like his "Emperor's new phone" comment at the end.

Really interesting bit on slowing down birdsongs and seeing how much they actually sound like human music. Also a neat bit on stuttering in birds.

This is mostly just a placeholder for now, I ran all the game results for the 2012 season through a simple ELO generator I wrote. Here are the preliminary results (much tweaking can be done): OAK: 1...

OK Go, I don't love their music... but holy shit can they make videos.
 
Yesterday, I mentioned that Needing/Getting by OK Go was my new jam (I'm late to the party, I know), at thisismyjam.com.

I love the fat, wet, grungy guitars, and the production of the track (the entire album, really) is fantastic.

So I linked to the official video in my jam thing, which I always try to do if there is an official video available, and didn't watch it until this morning. What I saw blew my mind (and 21 million others, apparently): the band did this promotion with Chevy where they set up a track with instruments and other noise-making things, outfitted a car with smacky-things (very technical, I know), and then recreated the entire song by driving the car around the track.

It's just gorgeous, and I wanted to share it, in case there are other people out there like me who hadn't seen it, yet.

If you haven't heard the studio version of this song, I highly encourage you to listen to it, first. It looks like you can find it at Facebook, but I have disconnect turned on so I don't see anything at this page (your milage may vary): https://www.facebook.com/okgo?sk=app_178091127385

Not sure if I've shared this before, but every once in a while when I'm doing something mindless for far too long I like to come back to it and remember that Math can be really interesting.

Terrible video someone took of the Refused show in Montreal this weekend. Shows the venue well though. Probably one of the best I've ever seen. Not bad for a band that just got back together after 13+ years.

I've been there 3 times now and while the experience is heavily influenced by the other children that happen to be present I've been very pleased with it. The equipment is better maintained than I would have expected and the price is great. Excellent way to entertain your child(ren) on a cloudy day.
