a new configuration...ice ice baby

Consider this just another public service announcement from the world headquarters. A friend sent me a link to this story that is rapidly making its way around the globe. Read it before it melts. Or better yet, just watch the video I've posted below and you'll be inspired, amused and amazed. In a couple of words: a band records new song and it's made from ice and played on a turntable. And for those who think that albums will last forever compared to computer code...

This is the link to the original story on Discovery News' site.

And this is the video:

I was just listening to Grateful Dead on pasta noodles when I saw that you posted this. Any true aficionado knows that the dark chocolate pressings are far superior in sound to the milk chocolate that this fellow uses.

I'm sure this fine German fellow will use virgin dark chocolate when he presses his edible copy of  Kraftwerk's "Autobahn".

But then again maybe it wouldn't matter....

A counter point to this maybe.

Using the newest trend on the block 3-d printing to print out a record.

I like how she said even with the highest resolution 3-d printer it's still an order or two magnitude away from traditional vinyl printing.

I heard a segment about 3-d printing on NPR over the weekend and it boggles my mind. I'm struggling to wrap my head around how it's possible.  Want a new shirt?  Just print one up.

3-d printing is the new darling of the Industrial Design crowd..

The revolution will be printed.

Mentioned on 60 Minutes this past Sunday as well. Every year we get closer to Star Trek's transporter.
