Hey there, sonic nerds: this mini-symphony is made entirely from the sounds of water in Kumamoto, Japan. The area is known for it’s high quality water, so Sony took it upon themselves to make their own water-powered version of Pachelbel’s Canon by going around with high-quality audio equipment and recording the beautiful and varies noises. You may not listen to the sounds of nature quite the same way again. Also, can we just talk about how scenic it looks there? Sign me up for a visit.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Paul McCartney says he gets along just fine with John Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono, despite the all the past resentment that seemed to have boiled between them.
Back when the Beatles were starting to deteriorate, Yoko’s tendency for hanging out in their recording studio and sitting in on private sessions irked Paul. But time, he says, has allowed him to let go of his grudge and heal. He mused:

The sad clown with a golden voice named Puddles singing an absolutely awesome rendition of “Royals” by Lorde. The odd, but utterly amazing, music video was posted by Scott Bradlee, of Postmodern Jukebox fame. Watch the video on Huffington Post…

The lanky blond arrived at the Maverick Center in Utah before the concert began, decked out in a Macklemore-style outfit of a hoodie, sneakers and sunglasses. Hales’ friends filmed him as he fooled fans into thinking he was, in fact, the famous rapper. The best part of the scheme was when he managed to talk security into letting he and his friends into the venue before the show started by insisting he was the performer. I am impressed! You have to admire this guy for his creativity. I’m also LOLing imaging how many fans uploaded gloating iPhone pictures of this guy to their social media thinking it was the real Macklemore.
