Warning: This Video Contains WWE Superstars Singing ‘Great Balls of Fire’; You’ve Been Warned…

Well, all it took was for Jerry Lawler to get another Jerry (Lee Lewis) to give WWE the rights his biggest hit for the RAW-exclusive Bad Blood pay-per-view to be renamed “Great Balls of Fire.” Oh boy… However, I will say that the prospect and anticipation for a Universal Championship match with Brock Lesnar defending against Samoa Joe — as well as Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman in an Ambulance Match — has amped for the show.  But just like WWE, they just have to quintuple-down on the pay-per-view absurd title of “Great Balls of Fire” by having a gaggle of WWE Superstars “sing” the lyrics to the Jerry Lee Lewis’ hit tune in the above promo video.

Star Wars + Sgt. Pepper’s LHCB = The “Princess Leia’s Stolen Death Star Plans” Album

The music group Palette-Swap Ninja (consisting of Jude Kelley and Dan Amrich) have finally releases a project that took five long years to complete.  Their new album, a concept album titled Princess Leia’s Stolen Death Star Plans, is available, and IT’S FREE!  And yes, this album combines the lore of Star Wars — particularly Episode IV: A New Hope, IN ORDER — and The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, and there’s good reason for that.  This year we celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Wars on May 25, and June 1st will be the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album. Continue reading Star Wars + Sgt. Pepper’s LHCB = The “Princess Leia’s Stolen Death Star Plans” Album

Astell & Kern’s $999 ‘heavyweight portable media player’ Kann; no, that’s NOT a typo…

Astell & Kern’s newest portable music player (or PMP with no “I”; sorry 50) — the $999 Kann — is out now, and for a portable media player, it has some pretty impressive modern-day inclusions.  This fact is interesting since most high-end portable music players are slow to included extra bells-and-whistles, if at all.  Not only is the Kann huge — it’s just over an inch thick (25.6mm) and weighs over half a pound (278.7g) — it includes a massive 6000mAh battery (for a supposed battery life of 14 hours), an integrated powered headphone amp, and both micro SD and full-size SD card slots. Keep in mind, this thing IS ONE-THOUSAND DOLLARS. Continue reading Astell & Kern’s $999 ‘heavyweight portable media player’ Kann; no, that’s NOT a typo…

Sony has released a PlayStation VR Music Video that you can walk around in…

I have been a proud owner of the PlayStation VR hardware since its launch last year, and for the past several months I’ve enjoyed playing VR-based games and demos, while also having a fun time playing non-VR games in theater mode.  VR, in general, is successful when the visuals and audio become optimally immersive, but most of the focus had been on visuals.  To show how capable PSVR can be by having the audio and other sounds adapt to your movement in the virtual space, Sony brought in violinist Joshua Bell to record a 360-degree virtual reality studio session at Air Studios’ Lyndhurst Hall in London. This project, which features adaptive audio and positional tracking, allows the subject wearing the PSVR helmet to semi-realistically “step inside” the recording studio.

Here’s A Spotify Playlist of Songs Full of Architectural Shout-Outs!

It doesn’t take too much time to consider that the artistic value, inspiration, and composition of architecture and music can often intersect one another; you also don’t need to have an awesome friend like Dr. Faye A Hays to tell you that, but it helps. ArchDaily’s sister site ArchDaily Brasil partnered up with Spotify to create a music playlist featuring songs with many references to architecture and urbanism. The songs in the included playlist contain anything from shout-outs to notable cities, iconic buildings and revered architects. In the list you’ll hear anything from David Bowie singing about Philip Johnson (Doc’D, episode 53) to Laurie Anderson referring to Buckminster Fuller and The Beatles acting concerned about their visits to minimalist apartments (hmmm, I smell a sitcommmmmmmmm…..)

So, The Arizona Cardinals Use WWE Women’s Champion Becky Lynch’s Theme Song To Celebrate Scores…

This past Sunday night, while Becky Lynch was becoming the first-ever WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion at the ALSO-first SmackDown-exclusive pay-per-view event (since February 2007’s No Way Out) WWE Backlash, the Arizona Cardinals paid tribute to her in a very interesting way. After Larry Fitzgerald scored a touchdown in the Cardinals’ home opener for the season, the stadium speakers played her awesome theme music. Woah-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-ooooooohhhhhhh…
