Dyatlov Pass Incident

What began as a recreational skiing journey to the top of an obscure mountain in the Urals, would soon take a turn for the bizarre. Before the end of a day in February of 1959, 9 people would be dead for inexplicable reasons, and one woman would be missing her tongue. Thus is a very vague summary of what has become known as the "Dyatlov Pass Incident".   -February 2'nd 1959 - Kholat Syakhl, (direct translation 'Mountain of the Dead' by the tribe of natives who live there) -Ural Mountains, So

The Enigma Variations

When Edward Elgar wrote the Enigma Variations...each song was dedicated to a friend. 'Nimrod' is a favorite of mine, it moves me. It makes me think of a time when war was still romantic, of men writing letters to loved ones back home, in rainy trenches in foreign lands far from home. Elgar dedicated 'Nimrod' to a friend that convinced him to continue composing music, at a time when he was about to quit in a fit of depression.   I hope you you can appreciate it a bit.... http://www.youtube.c

The Suzuki Unisynth

I hazz a Suzuki Unisynth....wtf is that you ask?   http://youtu.be/MceytR8RBco   Not too different from the Casio DG20....which the band "Flight of the Concords" uses. I can't play it for shit, but it's a funny oddball instrument nonetheless. It was made in the eighties, in Japan. There are no strings on the neck of this guitar. There are only strings over the bridge. Pressure sensors in the neck let you change the tones. There is also a gay little whammy-bar on it. It has six different pre

Artist Profile: Michael Giacchino

Ok so I am going in a bit of a different direction today. But it is only because I feel compelled to tell you about a certain artist that I enjoy a lot. The 1600's had their baroque artists, the 1700's and 1800's had their classical boom. And that is where we know most of our classical artists from. Classical has always struck a note with me. It's not all that different to some of the synthesized music I enjoy. VNV Nation, , Covenant; these guys are modern composers to me! It's not a band

Rise of teh Machines!!!!

Gee.........we sure have become dependent on technology.....for everything! I mean, it's not such a bad thing I guess....unless you've ever seen 'Maximum Overdrive' starring Emilio Estevez! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7K44PqV2Idk   I think one of my favorite parts of the movie is this one: . Extra points to anyone who knows that that certain bank customer in the movie was Stephen King, who actually wrote the story!  *Ahem* Machines wake us up in the morning, they help us get ready,

Headshot: The Story of Simo Häyhä

The year is 1939, all eyes are turned to central europe where WWII escalates, while the little-known 'Winter War' is just about to begin in Finland, as Soviet Russia invades it's tiny neighbor. Before it is over, one sniper will have racked up the most kills in history, and make Vasily Zeitsev look like he just got shit all over his face.   Simo Häyhä was called into action during the Winter War with his service under the 6th Company of JR 34 on the Kollaa River. The Finnish stand at Kolla
