2001: A Floyd Odyssey (2001: A Space Odyssey and Pink Floyd Echoes sync)

I am a huge fan of Pink Floyd, and also enjoy the works of Stanley Kubrick. This sync combines the song Echoes from Pink Floyd's 1971 album release Meddle with the "Jupiter and Beyond the Infinite" section of Kubrick's 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey. When I first saw this sync (luckily in 720p) I was impressed with it as it almost seems to be an intentional sync. Be sure to full screen it for best effect, as the tiny screen does it no justice

Pink Floyd The Wall Wallpapers

After the Resounding success of my Dark Side of the Moon wallpapers (found here) I decided I'd share my wallpapers that have to do with The Wall. The Wall is one of the favorite albums of my friend Heather, who's blog can be found here and is a good read. Enjoy!

25 or 6 to 4

On this day in music history, way back in 1970, Chicago released the single 25 or 6 to 4. I personally think this is one of my all time favorite songs, as the bass riff is very addicting. Green Day used the riff on  the song Brain Stew, and does absolutely no justice to it. I use 25 or 6 to 4 as the ringtone on my cellphone, and at least twice I have been complemented on my good taste in music rather than being yelled at when it has gone off at inopportune times.

Feel Like Making Love

This song is definitely a classic, and is track 2 Side A on Bad Company's 1975 Straight Shooter album. I remember being a smartass and dedicating this song to one of my friends after she sent a dirty text meant for another guy. Even though I didn't use her name on air she was still mad as she knew it was directed at her :P

Demons (cya-junk version)

This is one of the songs off of the free Drek Kick EP, and one of the times Cyanotic and Rabbit Junk have teamed up to create some awesome music. Its definitely worth picking up some of their other stuff and supporting both groups! Some of their other music I've posted can be found here for Cyanotic and here for Rabbit Junk.

Google Plus

Yes, I am one of those lucky people who managed to score a Google Plus invite. So far I greatly enjoy it, and  am thinking of beginning to move away from using Facebook for most things. One of the things I enjoy best about it is the minimalist interface, which is a nice change from Facebook which has become rather cluttered. If you can get your hands on an invite to Google Plus, you will not regret it.

Born In The USA

Since the 4th of July is coming up tomorrow, I thought I'd post about one of this country's most hilariously ironic "patriotic" songs.

Born In The USA is about a guy who is continuously screwed over by everyone, especially the US government, who gives him the choice of jail or being drafted and shipped to fight in Vietnam after getting into a fight back home. 

Reagan's press team completely missed the point of the song, and used it during his 1984 electoral campaign. Springsteen is very left wing, and was offended by it being misappropriated as a patriotic song when it is an anti-government and antiwar song.

Cougars, Y U Hunt Me?

This chart is incredibly useful when determining what you should expect from each age range when dealing with hookups. For the longest time I had cougars chasing me, and it was awkward as they were 15-20 years older than me O_O
