The 1 Kilometer flip book. Great making-of video, too.

The Beatles, finally available on iTunes. Meh.
I’m kind of tired of hearing how important the Beatles were to music every time I turn around. Yes, they were big. Yes, they were significant. Yes, they were talented. But seriously, Boomers. Get over it. There’s been a lot of great music since then.
The Best of College A Capella. Personally, I’d call it “the best of overdone reverb”. It would have been nice to hear clearer audio, but it’s still cool. If the execrable Glee has done anything, it’s reinvigorated a certain age groups’ interest in choral singing. Rihanna and Beyonce are the gateway drugs to Bruckner and Poulenc, so I’m all for it.
*Update* I just finished listening to all of them, and I have to say, some of them are pretty terrible. If this is the “best”, then we’re in trouble. I hate you, Simon Cowell.
Now this is what I’m talking about (no idea why the costume).
