I wish my car could do this…

A Little Bond Music

Sunday, January 25th, 2009 @ 5:56pm

I actually found this video a while back, but I thought it would be interesting enough to post again. Brett and I went and saw the Quantum of Solace today, so I had Bond on my mind. Enjoy!

Musical Road

Now if you ignore the obvious out of tuneness of the road, this is really a neat idea, although I’m not sure of the practicality of it. According to this article, the road was located in Lancaster, CA for a stretch until residents complained about the noise of the road.

Interestingly enough, this is not the first musical road in the world, but rather the first road in the US to be deemed as such, as there are already several in Japan.

Mario Bassoon Quintet

You don’t see very many good student bassoonists, as the instrument itself tends to be very expensive and is somewhat difficult to play. The following video is various arrangements for bassoon quintet playing various Mario themes. Enjoy!

Water Proof Portable Electronics

I can’t say I’m usually very worried about getting my electronics wet, but in either case the following video shows something very cool. Apparently, Golden Shellback is a coating that coats your electronics, inside and out, in a non-conductive coating that protects your device from moisture. This is something you have to see to believe, so take a look:

Depending on the price, I could see this being worth it. Especially if you do a lot of activities around water where you would want to keep your electronics dry. Very spiffy!

Indiana Jones and the Lego Boulder

I don’t know if this is some kind of viral marketing, but it’s pretty amusing so take a look:

I would love to listen in on the phone call to the insurance company.

Insured: I would like to report a claim.
Insurance Company: What seems to be the problem?
Insured: Caller explains situation.
Insurance Company: Your car got hit by what? A giant lego boulder?

Bohemian Rhapsody

Can you play Queen too loud? Apparently…

Mario Galaxy on Piano

Tuesday, January 29th, 2008 @ 5:58pm

Whoever the person is above is fairly talented and plays by ear fairly well. While (in my opinion) some of his arrangements are a little too “notey”, he still has some fantastic renditions of some of the main themes from Super Mario Galaxy. I would recommend checking out some of his other videos if you have played Mario Galaxy, and even if you haven’t, since the music is fantastic.

Seeing this REALLY makes me miss not having a piano. I really want one badly, but with the unfortunate accident has put me in not so great of a financial situation to be able to purchase one. I’m really afraid I will lose a lot of my muscle strength in my fingers from the lack of playing. Maybe after I get my rent settled for the next 6 months I can begin looking again…
