O.K. Sorry this took a while, but you know, things are busy, having just finally launching the Phylo game website. A while back, I mentioned getting an acoustic bass, and wanting to work on yet another science-geekery song. This one with a biodiversity theme and the inclusion of reader supplied latin names as well. That…

Here: Take a look at this. This was another cool thing we did at TEDactive. Essentially, we were given a piece of white paper and asked to doodle what we thought the “world needed more of.” Can you guess which part is mine? (hint: I’m such a geek)

Biodiversity song… TA DA! (sort of)

In case those of you (the 2 or so readers we have here) are anxiously waiting for the song on biodiversity that I promised a while back. Well, I’m still working on it (partly things have been busy, also partly I had some new recording hardware to figure out). Anyway, just to show that I…

O.K. I just re-strung my guitar and it’s sounding oh so pretty right now. As well, my delayed Christmas present is also arriving soon (a Fender acoustic bass – woo hoo!).

This is up (I’m sure) everywhere, but I can’t resist also showing it off, especially since I’ve played around with the science song genre myself. And you can buy the CD/DVD set for yourself (or your kids) at Amazon.

Science Scout twitter feed Thanks so much for all the great feedback with the Mitochondria song, and as promised, I picked a request from the comments for my next attempt at song writing. Specifically, this one: That’s right – we’re talking about the Buckminsterfullerene!

Song 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 1. Waterfall – James 2. Wake Up – Arcade Fire 3. Never Had Nobody Like You – M Ward 4. No one is to blame – Emile Millar Finding a great cover tune is tantamount to a glimpse of the promised land for a mixed tape afficionado.…

Very cool. Called, the “Mother of All Funk Chords,” this song and video is made only from various YouTube clips. Must of taken forever, but boy did it ever pay off. More at thru-you.com/. It’s stuff like this that really dictates the passage of copyright laws, since it’s obviously a creation of considerable originality and…
