The Rolling Stones is one of the most iconic bands in the world of rock and roll, with even the youngsters of today knowing about them, or at least knowing what they stand for. Formed in London in 1962 – when many of us were still particles of energy floating around the universe – the band is also known as the “World’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band”, though some may put up an argument.

The limitation, obviously, is the size of the printers. However, Diegel is already looking forward to the possibility of the school having a large-scale printer before the year ends. [Read more…]
One of the best lines I have heard from a song is “music is my aeroplane“. No doubt you also know what that song is, and I don’t know about you, but I think that line is just brilliant. The importance of music in life cannot be emphasized enough, and I can’t help feeling sorry for those who cannot appreciate it.
In any case, we all have our tastes in music, and one cannot – and should not – judge others because of this. And whatever kind of music may get you going, I think that you will appreciate what sound artist and composer Diego Stocco has created: dry cleaner music. [Read more…]
