Philip Glass: Geometry of Circles

According to Muppet Wiki, in 1979, Philip Glass wrote a series of short vocal pieces for Sesame Street. Above is the finished collaboration. Considering my fondness for post-modern American composers (most notably, Glass) and nostalgia for Sesame Street, this really gets my blood going.

BTW: I write this while half-watching a documentary (for the third time) about another fave, abstract-expressionist Mark Rothko. I’m feeling really geeked-out right now.

Starbucks (something I know a little bit about)

Baristas everywhere:You’re not doing me any favors by giving me extra anything that goes into my drinks.

Someone that makes an ass-load of money in R&D spent a. long. time. coming up with said drinks’ recipes. More milk doesn’t give me more “bang-for-buck.” My drink is not too bitter to begin with. It does not warrant more caramel syrup, white mocha, or flavored syrup than originally called for (contrary to what some of your “expresso” drink customers might say).

Do me a real favor: learn the recipes so that I might thoroughly enjoy my Starbucks experience.

The future is now

Well, we don’t have flying cars yet, but this’ll wow you enough.

Awe. Some.

So, um — yeah. Prince totally covered Radiohead’s “Creep” at Coachella ‘08 and it totally rocked the f-ing house.

Note: I’m sure a better video will surface later.  I’ll update when that happens.
