Not Normally a Fan of Theremin Music, But This Is Done Beautifully

[THEREMIN - Over The Rainbow] (Viewer #5,073,394)

Right hand controls pitch, left hand controls volume. I especially like the vibrato.

No, Google, That's Not Creepy or Stalkerish at All...

This was on my Google home page (yes, that mouse-hover text is real):

Guess I need to put a tighter rein on my personal information (although I guess that ship has sailed by this point in my online life...)

I'm Surprised the Anti-Capitalist Crowd Isn't Going All Social Justice Warrior on Apple Over This

I'm The Voice Of Siri: And No, Apple Didn't Pay (Or Warn) Me

Personally, I don't have a problem with the situation. She sold the rights to her voiceover work and got paid the money she asked for. But I could certainly see how leftists who don't understand how free markets work could make up an injustice to scream about.

And since that's what makes that sort happy, I'm puzzled as to why they don't.

Repeat to Yourself "It's Just a Show, I Should Really Just Relax"

[Star Trek Voyager's IMPOSSIBLY Tiny Planet] (Viewer #84,976)

He makes a good point, but instead of laughing it off and chalking it up to artistic license, he seems to get kind of offended that digital animators aren't always scientifically accurate.

Anyway, I recently decided to give Voyager a chance, so I've seen this planet a lot recently.

I'm somewhere in Season 2 right now, and I've been told I just need to grit my teeth until 7 of 9 comes along, after which it gets... well, if not better, at least tolerable.

I Think I'm OK With This

US T-shirt company sells swastika design as 'symbol of love and peace'

Homosexuals ruined rainbows and the word "gay", so co-opting symbols is definitely possible.

I can't think of better people to have it happen to than neo-Nazis.
