This is simply stunning. It is definitely worth watching in HD and full screen to see it at its best. I bet you watch it again a second time with the pause button
Thanks for posting this Deep Purple. It truly was amazing.

It was interesting to see how less "lit up" Africa was compared to Europe and North America. It is a stark illustration of where the wealth in the world is concentrated.

I personally loved the picture of the Alps and Lake Geneva. Looked like home.

Morrissey head shot

Poor gig etiquette mind, but a good shot nonetheless...

I gather that those who attended are asking for their money back.

This reminds me of the shoe throwing incident at Hyde Park in 2006. Texas were playing while the England v Portugal World Cup semi-final was at the penalty shootout stage on a big screen at the back of the arena. Some people thought that they should have stopped playing until after the match.

Sharleen Spiteri was somewhat more vocal in her response than Morrissey.

Language NSFW

Re: You Tube of the Day

One major trainwreck going on here.

Carrie Prejean on the View speaking about her book and how she was victimized by speaking her mind during the USA pageant.

She's beautiful, has blinding white teeth, crazy eyes, aggressive and dodges any question that the reason why she lost her Miss California crown was because of her sex tapes and topless pictures.

Wacky!

Re: You Tube of the Day

Can't find this video on You Tube yet. Ennio Morricone's Spaghetti Western music cleverly recreated with no instruments:

Re: You Tube of the Day

Carrie Prejean, ex Miss California, tells Larry King he's inappropriate and then turns off the mike to avoid answering any other questions. Awkward.

Re: Youtube of the Day - Part 2 ( Nov 2009 )

I don't know if I like this, I like the sound but I just don't understand the purpose- just that someone (probably students) had a lot of time on their hands. Can it play different tunes- if so themI am impressed but to play the same thing over and over?

Cool video, but obviously an animation... so I do not believe the story of the students building it up - unless they build it in their computers

That's what I thought but this is the story..... apparently?

Quote:
This incredible machine was built as a collaborative effort between the Robert M. Trammell Music Conservatory and the Sharon Wick School of Engineering at the University of Iowa. Amazingly, 97% of the machine's components came from John Deere Industries and Irrigation Equipment of Bancroft, Iowa. Yes, farm equipment! It took the team a combined 13,029 hours of set-up, alignment, calibration, and tuning before filming this video but as you can see, it was WELL worth the effort. It is now on display in the Matthew Gerhard Alumni Hall at the University and is already slated to be donated to the Smithsonian.

Just because someone writes it on Youtube, it does not really need to e true, does it?

Here you go. A fake, but a nice animation.

It is, nonetheless, impressive and very enjoyable.
