Thunderstruck on Guzheng

Thunderstruck on Guzheng

If AC/DC came from China instead of Australia and Scotland, their music might sound something like this guzheng cover by musician Moyun. If it sounds somewhat familiar, it’s because her arrangement of Thunderstruck was inspired by Luca Stricagnoli’s version of the song.

If you were in Paris in the 1960s or 1970s, you might have seen one of these Citroen Cityrama 55 buses.

Forging a Damascus Knife from Pennies and Dimes

One reason metals are so wonderful is because they can be melted down over and over again to form new objects. In this video from Rob Bonifacio, he shows us how he took some Canadian copper pennies and dimes, layered them with high-carbon steel and forged them into a Damascus blade for a knife. Part two here.

Did People Used to Look Older?

Our Favorite Things

Our Favorite Things

“Girls with blue whiskers tied up with noodles… These are a few of my favorite things.” Sound collage artists Negativland’s deranged edit of My Favorite Things from The Sound of Music dates back a decade but was too hilarious to pass up. Their take on There’s No Business Like Show Business is similarly bonkers.

No, that’s not a typo.

Sculpting Darth Vader from Star Wars: Rebels

Sculpting Darth Vader from Star Wars: Rebels

With Anakin’s battle-scarred face peering through his cracked helmet, Darth Vader looked pretty damned terrifying in Star Wars: Rebels.
