“After the recent campaign against yet another tax forced upon the great people of Ireland, I decided to produce this track using actual audio I recorded at public marches, “No way – we won’t pay”. Irish water and the Irish Government need to listen to the people for once. We have been listening to them for too long. Democracy “is what it is”.”

samples

Of this rather excellent sample of sampled and resampled sampling, Eclectic Method sez:

A video remix journey through the history of sampling taking in some of the most noted breaks and riffs of the decades. A chronological journey from the Beatles’ use of the Mellotron in the 60s to the sample dense hiphop and dance music of the 80s and 90s. Each break is represented by a vibrating vinyl soundwave exploding into various tracks that sampled it, each re-use another chapter in the modern narrative.

K’Nex builder Austin sez of this insanely over-engineered, utterly wonderful ball-run:

This is Clockwork, my fifth major K’nex ball machine, and my largest and most complex K’nex structure to date. It took 8 months to build, has over 40,000 pieces, over 450 feet of track, 21 different paths, 8 motors, 5 lifts, and a one-of-a-kind computer-controlled crane, as well as two computer-controlled illuminated K’nex balls.

We’re not normally huge fans of racing games but this insane fly-through launch trailer for Ubisoft’s Trackmania 2 Canyon is just so damned eyeball-pleasing.

Despite the labyrinthine build, it’s also easy to play, using little more than the arrow, backspace, and enter keys on a PC keyboard.

Apparently, you can do it with one hand. But that’s your own personal business.

Trackmania 2 Canyon on PC is addictive, beautiful, and oddly local (Ars Technica)
