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. In any case, with more than 200 million album sales worldwide, and with the band celebrating their 50th year last year, the Stones have certainly set the bar high for all other rock bands.
When HBO’s Game of Thrones was first announced, die hard fans of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire were torn into two camps. On the one hand, we had some people who were really excited about the series getting out there and that more people would be able to appreciate the wonderful work of this writer.
On the other hand, there were some who were apprehensive about the very same fact. The reason, however, was that there might be a lot of people just joining the TV series bandwagon without truly appreciating the books.
Who cares at this point? Both books and TV series are at a level of awesomeness that no one can overlook! [Read more…] about Game of Thrones Theme on Eight Floppy Drives
Are you one of those who get mesmerized by an awesome-looking guitar in the hands of a talented musician? I sure am, and I cannot count the times that I have (almost) drooled over a really good guitar. Not that I can really play well, but a beautiful guitar (that sounds good as well) is something that I always appreciate.
If you are the same way, then you will like the idea of the Spider Guitar, which is a 3D printed guitar. The idea is “owned” by Olaf Diegel, a mechatronics professor at Massey University. What a mechatronics professor does exactly – don’t ask me! ((Wikipedia on mechatronics))
Diegel used to only dream about his 3D printed guitars, but thanks to the development of 3D printers – and the fact that his school is fortunate enough to have several desktop 3D printers – the professor was able to create real guitars, albeit rather small. 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.

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.

Angry Birds has gotten old for a lot of people, but tell that to my little nephews who forget all their worries when they hear the Angry Birds theme playing on the iPad. They may not be able to play the game yet, but the mere sound of the music makes them happy. Would that adults be as simple!
Whether or not you are still enticed by the idea of playing what might very well be one of the most successful mobile games, I think that it is hard to deny that the playful theme music is quite irresistible. So irresistible that even the famed London Philharmonic Orchestra decided to play around with the music and give it their own special treatment.
