red marbles and glass bowls

Sometimes, moments of musical inspiration come at the oddest moments. Like, you're in your kitchen, starting to cook, you notice your bowls have different pitches, you just happen to have some marbles, and you feel like making some spooky sounds for a movie soundtrack...

Joy Division - No Love Lost

This unlikely juxtaposition forms the best youtube mashup ever! So perfect, so wrong...

Quoting someone else's comment: "hmmm... i can see the alternate universe where joy division won eurovision in 1980. it's a radioactive wasteland now."

Surface Of Eceon - The Open Sea

The US Government makes all the coolest music videos:

Surface Of Eceon - The Open Sea

A 7 minute music video featuring amazing photography of Earth's South Pole in June, 2004. Witness 24 hour daylight and breathtaking images of the moon and stars while the sun is still above the horizon. Notice the awe inspiring waves of aurorae, which are charged particles from the sun that are normally visible near the Earth's poles, due to their interaction with our planet's magnetic field.
The video was photographed by by scientists from the University of San Diego & the US Government.
