THX "Deep Note" Sound Downloads

THX logo Let’s face it: who doesn’t think the THX sound at the beginning of movies (called “Deep Note”) is totally awesome? Being the audio geek that I am, I’ll sometimes skip back a few seconds on a DVD just to hear it a couple of times - yes, I’ll admit it. I was browsing around YouTube and found some HD copies of various THX intros, and got to thinking: wouldn’t it be cool if I could have these sounds on my phone to test my car stereo, or use when testing an audio system when I’m setting it up?

Counter Protest of Westboro Baptist Church at Meade High School

Counter protesters The Westboro Baptist Church picketed this morning at Meade High School. As I discussed in a post the other day, they based today’s demonstration on claims that the school has a large number of homosexual students. When they announced their intentions, a surge of counter protest movements fired up, and the result was impressive. We got there around 6:30am and already there was quite a crowd. The police closed off the road where the protest was being held, and kept the WBC & counter protesters on separate sides of the road. Continue reading »

Looking For Some Comic Relief? Check Out @BronxZoosCobra

As you may or may not have heard, a cobra in the Reptile House at the Bronx Zoo escaped from its habitat over the weekend. The Bronx Zoo has taken precautions to avoid the possibility of visitors encountering the snake, and they believe it’s still in the Reptile House, so it’s not a huge deal. Still, there’s a lot of comedy to be found in the situation, and somebody has apparently taken to starting the latest Twitter sensation around it. Continue reading »

Ever Wondered How a Car's Differential Works? Here's Your Answer

Even for gearheads, some systems in a car are a little hard to wrap your head around. Things like the transmission & differential are good examples of this. My friend sent me a video today that does a great job of explaining the principles of a differential in a simple, easy to understand way. The best part: it’s from the 1930s, so it’s got that great old film feel to it. Continue reading »

Beer Picks: Yuengling Porter

6 pack of Yuengling Porter I’ve decided to start a new segment on my site. It’s called Beer Picks and the concept is simple: each week from time to time I’ll pick a beer that either I’ve had before and like, or one I’ve never had before but looks interesting, and feature it on the site. I’ll describe it as best I can, which will be pretty basic since I’m by no means a beer expert. Continue reading »
