2009.11.13 The Beatles Never Broke Up

A mash-up/mix of Beatles music (pre/post break-up) charaded as an actual album released by The Beatles in an alternate universe/dimension (which you can download, free). It's interesting to listen to, but I find it doesn't match The Beatles style. My favorite mashup to date of Beatles music has to be The Grey Album#

Hey Jude - Flowcharted

Yeah, the lyrics are just that unique… not. #

2009.10.12 Audio Analysis of the Beatles Multitrack Masters - Waxy.org

For the audiophile and Beatles fan in you, Andy Baio found some analysis of the original multi-track master recordings. Very interesting to hear the various pieces. I'd love to hear more of this. If anything, download the track for Come Together, because you know you know that song. #

2009.09.22 Rickenbacker Guitar Factory Tour - (NOTCOT)

A fascinating look into the factory that makes the same classic guitar The Beatles used. Don't miss parts 2 and 3 of the tour. #

2009.08.24 Kind of Bloop: An 8-Bit Tribute to Miles Davis' Kind of Blue

I've been following this project on Kickstarter since its inception, and was very interested to see how it would turn out. Although I'm not a Miles Davis super-fan, this creation is a fabulous rendition, and I think a great tribute (albeit modern and geek chic) to the jazz master. #

2009.08.23 Pterodactyl Squad - Weezer - The 8-bit Album

I'm very late to this one (saved it to review at a later date... and that date finally came). Weezer songs and video game sound chip tunes, all mashed up into what would only be one of the most awesome soundtracks to an 8-bit video game ever. My personal favorites are 4 (with human vocals), and 7 (sans vocals). Very cool. Very geek chic. #

2009.06.03 The Beatles: Rock Band Trailer

Add this to the list. This video shows more what the gameplay will look like. I'm thrilled they've historically represented the band members, venues and general feeling that each of the songs and albums had. I tend to feel extremely sorry for people who despise, dislike, or don't fully appreciate the impact The Beatles had on modern music. Basically I just think it shows ignorance… but that's a different rant for a different day. #

2009.06.03 The Beatles: Rock Band Press Conference Trailer

I don't know of another game in recent history for which I have been as excited as I am for this game. I love The Beatles, and I'm really looking forward to playing this game and enjoying the music. #

2009.05.14 Julia Dales - Beatbox Battle Online World Champion

One of those things that I've always been amazed by. I'm not that orally talented to make those types of sounds that quickly. Very impressive, especially from such an unassuming person. #

2009.05.13 Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix

I really enjoyed Phoenix's previous album, and was thrilled to see a new one yesterday. As a band they've come much further than I would have suspected, especially considering their original roots (electronica?). #
