I don’t watch the plethora of TV talent shows that seem to pop up more and more every television season. But I’m very glad someone sent me this clip from one. Jackie Evancho sang Puccini's "O Mio Babbino Caro" ("Oh My Dear Papa") on Tuesday’s episode of American’s Got Talent and blew everyone away. … Continue reading the story "Ten Year Old Opera Sensation Jackie Evancho"
Ready for another animal friends video? This one features another unexpected pairing – a cat and a rat. There's a couple of rats actually, but one seems particularly affectionate and intrigued by this feline. In all fairness, Ranj the rat seems to be rather more interested in Peanut the cat, than the other … Continue reading the story "Rat and Cat – Kiss and Hug"
UPDATE: The video referenced in this post is unfortunately no longer available and the link to it has been removed. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I don’t know how sincere it always is, but I definitely get the flattery part. How complimentary to know someone liked something enough to want to create their own version of it. But I think this might … Continue reading the story "Law & Order Spoof"

So I couldn’t help but smile, and be a little envious there’s not a harp version…yet…when … Continue reading the story "Interactive Shirts from Guitar to Wi-Fi"
While we still don’t have consumer versions of that Light Touch projector/computer that turns any surface a touchscreen, I have come across something that is available that turns any surface into a speaker. OrigAudio has come out with, “The Rock-It portable vibration speaker system takes music from your device and generates it into vibration sequences. … Continue reading the story "Turn Any Surface into a Speaker"
After writing yesterday’s post on MP3 turntables, I was thinking about all the great music of decades gone by. Some we continue hear relatively frequently, but there are other songs I wish were heard more often. Obviously that’s why we each get to build our own collection, be it analog or digital or both. But we’ll never get … Continue reading the story "Taste of The Kingston Trio"
Joining the MP3 world later than some, what may be new and exciting to me, may be old hat to many of you. In fact, that very expression ‘old hat’ may be old hat to you, and cause you to run screaming from this blog. I hope that’s not the case. Best of all possible worlds is what I hope for. Old and new, young … Continue reading the story "New and Old – MP3 Turntables"
