A Mashup Ending

I guess that my new year's resolutions should include posting more often. Sorry for the lack of them and thanks for sticking with me.

Let's end the year then on a musical high with a mashup of 56 different songs mixed together by Robin Skouteris. Enjoy and a happy new year to all of you.

Kippilaw Christmas

Happy Christmas from me to all my readers. I'm up in Scotland to spend the festive season with family in a huge Victorian house and loving it. I'll be posting again so, so see you then.

Bastille Mashup

The BBC Radio 1 "Live Lounge" sessions have produced some fabulous music over the years and here's a great example. Bastille decided to combine several Christmas in to a mashup that any lover of music would appreciate. Enjoy.

Phone Crash

It seems that crashing in on other people's phone conversations is great to watch. I'm not sure how I would react if it happened to me, but I hope I'd be as happy as the last girl.

Ditch Fun

As a keen kayaker, this caught my eye, but I'm not sure I'd could justify the damage to a £400 kayak. No such problem for Ben Marr though as he flies down a drainage ditch in Canada at speeds up to 34 mph. I confess it looks great fun.

Anthill Art

I'm in two minds as to whether this counts as animal cruelty, but there is no doubt that pouring molten aluminium in to an ant's nest produces some beautiful results.

The Grasshopper test vehicle is designed to advance the technologies needed to return a rocket back to Earth intact. While most booster rockets today are designed to fall back into the ocean or burn up in the atmosphere after use, SpaceX is designing rockets that will return to the launch pad for a vertical landing.

For this latest flight, Grasshopper used a brand new sensor system and flight control algorithms, which resulted in a far more accurate landing than was possible before. Grasshopper flew to 325 metres (1066 feet) before smoothly landing back on its launch pad.

It Is Always Now

An excerpt from a Sam Harris lecture (the full version can be found here). His thoughts have a clarity that I find very easy to identify with. I think my friends on my OALM course would understand this.

Canyon Ride

Kelly McGarry flips a 72-foot-long canyon gap at the Red Bull Rampage 2013 to earn a 2nd place finish. All I can really add is "Wow".

PowerUp 3.0

Turn your self-made paper airplane into a smartphone-controlled flying machine with PowerUp. This needs to happen because I want one.
