    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 →

    Remember when the Wu-Tang double CD (Wu-Tang Forever) came out in '97 and in 'Bells of War' RZA told me I didn't even need to go to summer school, that the Wu-Tang double CD would be all the education I needed that year? Well he was SPOT ON. And now the group has announced th... / Continue →

    This is a series of twenty popular bands imagined as LEGO minifigs by Adly Syairi Ramly. He says all the photos were taken with an iPhone 5 and there was no Photoshopping of the figures. Not that I was going to accuse him of that. But there's always someone out there in a da... / Continue →

    Please, no Japanese pianist jokes, this is an upscale club we're running. This is a video of Japanese pianist Yoshiki performing against a holographic version of himself. It kind of reminded me of Dueling Banjos from Deliverance, but with infinitely less inbred rednecks tryin... / Continue →

    This is a video of the London Central Fellowship Band of the Salvation Army performing at a church when a trombone player hits a sneeze-sharp and blasts mucous right into his instrument. It sounded like a baby elephant farting. Or at least what I IMAGINE a baby elephant farti... / Continue →

    This is a video of drummer Tyler Williams of the Beau Hodges Band demoing a bunch of Firepixel flamethrowers that respond to different drum beats via attached MIDI controllers. Cool, but I want voice activated flamethrowers. IN MY CAR. Each FirePixel is capable of 256 differe... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like the lovechild of Legion from Mass Effect and some shitty 80's rocker, the lead guitarist from robotic band Z-Machines prepares to shred...everybody in the audience's faces off. And not in a good way either -- in a BAD way. Like, it will wear those faces... / Continue →

    This is a photo Bill Nye posted to his Instagram of him emulating the Jay-Z photograph in the background. That's pretty much all there is to say except I'm glad Jay-Z and Nas put their feud to rest because I got tired of hating Jay-Z so much in the early 2000's. It took a lot... / Continue →

    PROTIP: If you don't want to see cats puking skip this video because, I don't know if you could tell from the title and picture or not, but that's what this is. If you don't want to see cats puking and still watch it, congratulations, you're even dumber than my dumbest friend ... / Continue →

    This is a picture of the Super Mario themed drum kit that Josh Fry just finished building. It was his first drum kit build. For reference, I have built zero drum kits, but a shit-ton of model airplanes. Anybody recognize the sprite he used for the ground? I know it's not fr... / Continue →

    Note: Screencap above is the singer in the middle with a microphone. Watch the video at full screen in HD. Also, be sure to watch at work so your coworkers think you're a crazy person staring at a static screen. This is the music video for Young Rival's 'Black Is Good'. It'... / Continue →

    This is a video of Vimeo member Mc Cool using an electric piano as a controller to play Tekken. Impressive, but I've beat video games using a guitar before. "Rock Band and Guitar Hero don't count." Sure they do. *air guitaring* "Wait -- was that a Taylor Swift song?" I WA... / Continue →

    This is a video of Ryu kicking Taylor Swift in the head during her Grammy performance of All Too Well. I am not familiar with that song. Of course I'm not familiar with a lot of songs because I don't keep up with new pop music. Is Taylor Swift pop music? Don't even answer, ... / Continue →

    I'd be chirping too if that were me. UPDATE: Apparently faked in some capacity. *shrug* People are such jerks. So apparently if you slow down the sound of crickets chirping to the point where a cricket's lifespan matches that of a human's (no idea how slow that is), it becom... / Continue →

    Not to be outdone (but still totally outdone) by The Ohio State University's marching band, this is a video of Clemson's marching band performing a tribute to Super Mario Bros. and Zelda. The performance is actually decent+/good-, but the person holding the camera leaves a lit... / Continue →

    This is an interactive music video for Bob Dylan's classic 'Like A Rolling Stone' featuring a little TV set that you can use to change the channel and watch people on all the different programs lip-sync the song. There's Drew Carey on The Price Is Right, Marc Maron doing a pod... / Continue →
