Loc: It's all about the location.
Been listening to some music online by "Camel". I can't believe I've never heard of these guys before, as they've been around since the early 70's. They sound like Genesis, Mike Oldfield, Alan Parsons and Jethro Tull mixed together. Maybe some King Crimson too.

The Large Hadron Collider


http://gizmodo.com/5546299/the-large-hadron-collider-makes-beautiful-terrifying-music

When we're not using the Large Hadron Collider to smash particle beams together or daydream about time travel, we might as well turn it into a musical instrument right? Great! Except that its tunes are purely hellspawn.

Of course, these aren't the actual sounds made by the LHC itself. Instead, LHCsound has turned the properties of the Higgs jet into one creeptastic jingle:

A jet is made up of lots of cells containing energy deposits. Each cell has an energy, a distance and an angular distance (dR) associated with it. So each cell can be heard as a separate note in this example. This is quite a long track (about 90 seconds). The sounds reduce in density very much towards the end, with isolated events separated by silences of several seconds.

Intriguing! And definitive proof that while the LHC hasn't ended the world yet, it's definitely plotting

God Help the Girl - "Baby, You're Blind"

It's always lovely hearing vocals by Linnea Jönsson of Those Dancing Days.

I will always love her hair, too.

Don't forget that the 25th (tomorrow for me as I type this, but today for most of you reading this) is the day Marina and the Diamonds hits the US in the form of her album, The Family Jewels. Unfortunately, the deluxe iTunes edition of the album doesn't have the titular bonus track, "The Family Jewels," like the UK edition did. I wonder how they're going to offer that track here, or if they even will. I love that song, so here's hoping there's a legitimate way for me to purchase it.

I would love to see her at the Lilith Fair in Seattle/George on July 3rd, but I don't know if it will be possible. Tom, what are the chances you'll be there? \:\)

I'm glad she's keeping your attention.

How could she not with an outfit like this?

It almost looks like she is a projection screen.

Now that's actually a fascinating concept. I wonder if anyone's ever done that.
