Plan your future sight-seeing trips with Google Maps.Plan your future sight-seeing trips with Google Maps.

Neat little project to come out of Labs, calculates routes and directions for major tourist attractions in a given city (only from the current available selections). Added bonus: lists off the operating hours of said major tourist attractions.

Say hello to the power outlet of tomorrow.Say hello to the power outlet of tomorrow.

Plug is as many things as your circuit can amp up, and power them all on or off with two taps of your toe. I can think of one good reason this would be much safer as a power strip than a wall outlet, however.

Rowan Atkinson YouTube Medley

And thus began another verbose post about a VHS tape I used to own that can magically come back to life thanks to the power of YouTube. Behold, the comedic genius of Rowan Atkinson (aside from Mr. Bean).

Welcome to Hell

Roll Call

The Amazing Jesus

A Final Bash

Drumming through YouTube.

It's always great when you can get nostalgic over an old lost video tape and then years later find most of its content on YouTube. Some years ago one of my favorite VHS tapes to watch was the 'Buddy Rich Memorial Scholarship Concert'. It got lost in the shuffle of college, moving, marriage, traveling years later and now it's probably buried somewhere in my parent's basement (along with my set of drums, other instructional drum videos, Slytherin's Locket, Hufflepuff's Cup, etc, etc) Basically, it's a great video that shows off some of my favorite drummers doing their thing. The last video entitled 'drum trio' is especially fun to watch (even if you're not a drummer). Enjoy.

Vinne Colaiuta - (title of song unknown)

Steve Gadd - Keep the Customer Satisifed

God Street Wine and the Post of Terminal Fandom.

While aimlessly surfing the web this evening I came across this fantastic writeup about my favorite band, God Street Wine. Anyone who knows me outside of a nutshell knows that this is my favorite band. The irony, at least from what I can tell, is that its nobody else's favorite band outside of maybe one or two people (and the rest of the Winos). I was shocked tat one day I actually had to convince a fellow co-worker (and fellow jamband fan) that God Street Wine was not in fact, a Christian rock band (read that again, Inverso). That aside, I probably saw this band over fifty times throughout their career and loved each and every show. The music of the band struck a big chord with me and it still does years after the band stopped playing. So basically I'd like to share this article with all of you along with some YouTube vids that are making me even more nostalgic. Enjoy and happy GSWing.
