Alaska Video

0

I don’t think I shared this video with y’all.  I think it’s pretty neat.  Yes it’s 5 minutes long, but there’s alot there.  And damnit, I spent more time than I should have getting the music to sync up with the video well.  So you’ll watch it, and you’ll like it, and you’ll comment on … Continued

All I Play-Oh

On the eve of the release of the greatest game on the Xbox 360 I re-present you this great video showing the game that re-defined everything.  Ok, maybe I over-exaggerated a bit, but like the general theme of the video, Halo is all I Play-Oh.  It was the reason I bought a Xbox, and an … Continued

Halo Strings

Besides pianos, I love strings.  Love, love, love, strings.  This video combines both (because the Halo Theme includes both).  But the real awesomeness is just watching the production value of the video. Watch the Zelda one next, again there’s the production values that make the whole video worth it.  I like the combination of different … Continued

Musical Marble Machine

Garth Brooks did two shows at Yankee Stadium this weekend.  The first time he’s been back to New York since his legendary Central Park show 19 years ago.  I went to both of his shows this weekend.  Yesterday’s included a 3 hour rain delay which only made the show that much better.  Here’s proof: the … Continued

The City Music Machine

0

This is a pretty novel way to make a music box.  Instead of having a drum flick metal posts, Akko Goldenbeld build a city on a drum.  As the drum turns, the raised cityscape hits hammers that hit keys to a piano.  It’s quite giant, and looks unwieldy.  This isn’t just some random city either, … Continued

The Day The Music Died

Today, 57 years ago, 4 people lost their lives in a plane crash in Iowa.  Three of those people were popular musicians Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J. P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson, the 4th was their pilot of the plane they charted to take them between shows in the mid-west.  America was stunned as Holly … Continued
