    This is Cloud, an interactive lamp and speaker designed by Richard Clarkson. It looks like a cloud and lights up to music or nearby movement. It doesn't actually rain though, which is a shame because that would be a great way to tell guests it's time for them to leave. This ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber Davie504 performing the iconic bass lines of 100 different songs. There were some I felt shouldn't have made the list, and others that were absent that I feel should have been included, but whatever -- everybody has different musical taste. Somethi... / Continue →

    This is a video of DJ Jazzy Jeff (who has nice looking arms) beat-dueling Jeremy Ellis using the original sound from Super Mario Bros. Who won? I vote Jazzy Jeff. Granted it's not the most incredible thing I've ever heard, but it's nowhere near a stranger's baby crying on a ... / Continue →

    This is the soundproof and airproof box that Portuguese artist João Onofre invites metal bands to play in as a performance piece. The bands play until they run out of air. No word if João is secretly trying to eradicate all the bands, but I bet with a little research we'd dis... / Continue →

    This is an 80's dance version of the Game of Thrones theme created by 24-year old Russian producer Steve Duzz. It's worth a listen. Then we can all get neon spandexed out and have a dance party at my place! "Seriously?" No, anybody wearing neon spandex in my apartment gets ... / Continue →

    Notice how I opted against using 'Pounding' in the title? It wasn't easy. Possibly the hardest decision I've ever had to make. This is the Planet Series of beers from Bell's Brewery in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Each was inspired by Gustav Holst's orchestral composition, 'The Pla... / Continue →

    Note: Start your volume low, it's loud. This is a jazz version of the Game of Thrones theme as performed by the New Orleans Swamp Donkeys at BB King's Blues Club in New York City. I am into it. But, FULL DISCLOSURE: I've always liked the Game of Thrones theme AND jazz music,... / Continue →

    This is the very impressively constructed music video for metal band Throne's song 'Tharsis Sleeps.' The whole thing was shot frame-by-frame using individually embroidered scenes. That...sounds time consuming. Thankfully, they used a computerized embroidery machine instead o... / Continue →

    Dammit -- keep your overalls on, this is a family concert! This is a video of Rob Scallon (of Slayer on a ukulele fame) performing 'Raining Blood' on a banjo. I have never seen it rain blood before but one time I sneezed so hard it rained boogers. That was the end of that ro... / Continue →

    This is a video of Michael Jackson's hologram performing 'Slave To The Rhythm' at yesterday's 2014 Billboard Music Awards. He looked pretty lifelike. So lifelike I'm not convinced it wasn't actually Michael Jackson. Maybe he finally got bored of pretending to be dead and jus... / Continue →

    These are the slug and snail earbuds created by artist Klára Pernicová. They make it look like a slug and snail are crawling into your ears. They're plastic though. They're also not for sale, so if you want a pair you're going to have to make them yourself. I'm going to mak... / Continue →

    Remember that R&B version of the Pokemon theme? Well now the group is back with their own version of the Duck Tales theme. And let me tell you -- that singer has got some pipes on her. I could close my eyes and listen to her belt out sultry jams all night. A kid crying? I ... / Continue →

    This is the $150 GuitDoorbell, a real half size guitar that gets its strings strummed every time the door is opened. So it's not technically a doorbell, because 1) not a bell and 2) doorbells are usually rung from the outside BEFORE the door is opened. This only makes sound A... / Continue →

    This is a video of Alex Allmont's electronic beat producing LEGO machine, Playhouse. It makes beats so fresh you'd swear they were handpicked from the farm this morning. Or at least aren't passed their expiration date and marked with one of those orange 'Manager's Special' st... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy finger-snapping the Super Mario Bros theme. He does a great job. Man, some of the facial expressions he makes though. He reminds me of my friend Brian. Brian is that friend you can't help but want to punch all the time. This guy looks a little too ... / Continue →

    This is the Pyro Board, a table containing 2,500 flames that respond to the audio pumped beneath it. It's like a real-life Winamp visualizer. Remember in college when you used to get high and listen to your favorite music at night watching Winamp at full screen? Those were s... / Continue →

    This is 'The Dark Side Of The Covers', a series by Flickr user Harvezt imagining what the opposite side of an album cover might look like. Sort of like, a shot taken from the OTHER SIDE of the subject. Does that make sense? I suck at explaining things. Just go look at all t... / Continue →

    This is a series of iconic (some less than others) album covers superimposed over the actual locations they were shot at in Google Street View. I have not visited any of those places. Of course, I'm still saving up for my album cover tour of the world. So far I've got a gran... / Continue →

    Patatap (embedded after the jump or you can visit the official site or a full-screen version) is a little browser app that plays a different sound and animation for every letter of the keyboard. So you just mash away and CREATE MAGIC. Or a cacophony (somebody threw a Gatorade... / Continue →

    OMG, SO MANY BUTTONS TO PUSH! This is a worthwhile video (at least skip around) of Jelani Eddington performing the Star Wars main theme on one of the largest pipe organs in the world, a Wurlitzer theater organ with some 8,000-pipes. For reference, I only have one pipe. "Your... / Continue →
