While attending the Psychostick concert on Wednesday with my podcast co-host Melissa, she chastised me for not being familiar with Adam Ant. Once I heard the song I somewhat recognized it. Had you put a gun to my head and asked me who that was, I'd have looked at you funny for putting me in such a strange dilemma. Once that past though, I wouldn't have had a shot in guessing the name of who made this song.

Anyway. Here's some upcoming dates to keep in mind:

Saturday, August 29th: The Nebulous reunion show at Twist of Lime in Metairie, LA. This is a 21 and over show with a 5 dollar cover. Come hang with your friends!.

Sunday, August 30th: The last ever brainSTATIC podcast. We will be relaunching with a re-focused show that's along the same lines, but with some changes to try to make the show a whole lot better. All specifics should be announced then.

The website is also getting a makeover, and that should be happening within the next month or two. Probably in September, however . . . things have been a bit hectic late.

Anyway, without further delay, here's Adam Ant to dance us into the weekend with red leather pants.

Scientists Control Mouse Brain

I don't want to sound alarmist. I don't want to be that guy who denounces technology like an old man, however. . . does this seem a bit unsettling to anyone else? Should we really be trying to control living being's brains? The potential benefits for humans are there as well, but I would imagine this opens the door for something akin to a Manchurian candidate. I suppose this is where we're going, benefits and consequences alike.

From Ben, this Friday's entry features over 100 theramins. Because it's the weekend, and because why not? Have a good one, everybody.

Hattori Hanzo Sword Forged

Referencing Kill Bill or any Tarantino film is an easy way to get my attention. Forging the blade from scratch with tradition pretty much seals it. I just spend nearly 20 minutes watching guys work in a blacksmith shop and I was glued to the screen the entire time. That's Man-At-Arms for you.

Satoru Iwata Quotes

I've been fascinated with games ever since my parents bought me my first NES when I was a wee lad. That system and it's vision had a profound effect on me growing up. I along with the rest of the gaming world had to pause when Nintendo's Iwata passed away recently. The people over at Ars Technica put together a collection of quotes from the late CEO. Rest in peace.

Time Lapse From The Platte River

Sometimes . . . on a Monday. . . I just want to look at pretty pictures. This fits the bill. Full screen helps this one out a lot.
