Ted Koppel is the man

Ted Koppel giving the truth about cable news. As my good friend Floyd put it…

“this was a wonderful expression of the misguided nature of the american mindset…he used very few words and spoke eloquent truth…free of contrived emotion to bait and twist truth for dollars…”

Here! In The Wychwoods by The Advisory Circle

This is the third album for a bloke named Jon Brooks who writes under the name The Advisory Circle. It’s very 70’s sounding synthesizer music. It’s as if Boards of Canada were actually writing music in the 1970’s. Great stuff.

scoreLight Laser tracking by University of Toykyo

Remember that video of the robotic hand with three fingers that could twirl a stick, bounce a ball, throw a cell phone up in the air and then catch it? The one that looked like this…

 

Well… that was created at Ishikawa Komuro Lab’s at the University of Tokyo. All I can say is that is one smart tribe of cookies. If you dig deeper in that lab you’ll find out that they’ve done a crap load of insane projects such as this laser tracking, sound generating contrapsha-speriment.

scoreLight is this name of this project. And no… it doesn’t use a camera to find outlines. It’s a laser beam that uses feedback and looks for changes other factors. I’m not 100% sure, but I am guessing color frequency and/or distance variations. Take a look. Pretty damn cool.

Massive Attack by Podington Bear

I can only describe Podington Bear as music that should have been used for a kids show. This track in particular is actually more beaty, but still a good representation of what he does. Podington Bear is Chad Crouch and you can find his website and podcasts here. Cool thing about Chad is that he freely shares his music and gets income from licensing of his tracks. Podington Bear is actually a 10 CD set of 135 songs of this kind of stuff. If I recall it was part of a project he worked on where he produced a new song every day or two. Nice work Chad and thanks for the groovy music!
