Bohemian Rhapsody on a Single Guitar!

As a part-time guitar player, this is pretty darn cool. There is clearly a lot of talent here and the interpretation of the song is pretty great. I will say that the split-screen effect is a good idea but there are times when I don’t think the top and bottom are completely in sync.

Vanity Fair Photography 2006

This is a great collection of Vanity Fair photos from 2006. cusl02_year0612.jpgThere are a lot of celebrity shots here, mostly by Annie Leibovitz which as always have wonderful composition and color. Her stuff is never boring and it’s often interesting if only to see what celebrities will let her do with their image. cusl12_year0612.jpgThere are also a couple of doctored pictures showing what might happen if the Greenland ice shelf melted completely. Kinda cool and kinda scary. All in all a nice set of creative photographic work. Not amazing, just really solid.

Portable Solar

OK it’s a tree hugger web site, but still… more people using solar is a good thing.  This particular device seems to be a pretty good solar converter… and new enhanced devices for alternative energy are a great use of human creativity.  OK… off the soapbox now.  Thanks for listening.
