Supposedly, It Only Works With Blondes

Chopin’s Étude Op. 10, No. 5

For you, Mom (although I'll bet you already knew this)..

This is bar 66 of Chopin’s Étude Op. 10, No. 5. The red F is noteworthy because it’s the only point in the whole composition that the right hand touches a white key — apart from that, it plays black keys exclusively.

Jascha Heifetz once asked Ayke Agus to close her eyes while he played the piece for her. “It sounded strange,” she wrote, “and when I peeked I saw that he was playing it with an orange.”


Sure enough! Take a look:

Eye Floaters

(I thought it was just me..)

Today I found out what causes eye floaters.

For those who’ve never experienced this phenomenon, eye floaters are little oddly shaped objects that appear in your vision, often when one looks at bright light such as a blue sky. Their shapes vary greatly, but will often appear as spots, cobwebs, or randomly shaped stringy objects. These are not optical illusions, but rather something your eyes are actually perceiving. There are a few different things that can cause this, but in most cases these eye floaters are caused by pieces of the gel-like vitreous breaking off from the back portion of your eye and then floating about in your eye ball.

The vitreous humor, or often just “vitreous”, is a clear gel that fills the gap between your retina and lens, helping maintain the round shape of your eye in the process. This gel is about 99% water and 1% other elements; the latter of which consists mostly of a network of hyaluronic acid and collagen. Hyaluronic acid ends up retaining water molecules. Over time though, this network breaks down which results in the hyaluronic acid releasing its trapped water molecules. When this happens, it forms a watery core in your vitreous body.

As you age then, pieces of the still gel-like collagen/hyaluronic acid network will break off and float around in this watery center. When light passes through this area, it creates a shadow on your retina. This shadow is actually what you are seeing when you see the eye floaters.

Maybe The Best Illusion Ever

This is very cool!

If you allow your eyes to follow the movement of the rotating blank dot, the other dots will remain only one color - pink.

However if you stare at the black “+” in the center, the moving dot turns green.

Now, concentrate on the black “+” in the center of the picture for about ten seconds or so, but continue to stay focused. After a short period, all the pink dots will slowly disappear, and you will only see only a single green dot rotating.

It’s amazing how our brain works. There never was a green dot, and the pink ones don’t ever disappear in reality. Proof enough that we don’t always see what we think we see!

Eric Whitacre's Virtual Choir

185 voices - representing 12 different countries

From Eric Whitacre's website:
The Virtual Choir project began as a simple experiment in social media, but it seems to have grown into something much bigger than I ever dreamed possible. The latest video has gone ‘viral’, and the video looks like it’s on its way to 900,000 views, maybe more.

Remember, anyone can participate. We will announce the next Virtual Choir piece soon – stay tuned!

Concept Cars From The 50's

For you, Dad!


Oh those were the days! Early stages of Space Age were a great source of inspiration for many artists. The Googie style in architecture and interior designs, and of course the “space culture” in automotive design – that’s only a couple of spheres affected by Space euphoria of that epoch.

The concept designs below reflect the best design trends of the early “Space Age” – using tailspins, small wings and other aerodynamic elements that were allegedly borrowed from the space engineering. We can’t call these cars extremely beautiful but they are surely essential parts of a design history that are worth being honored. Despite all weird forms and rather futuristic styles, the Fabulous 50’s gave many awesome legendary cars – from Cadillac Eldorado 62 to Ford Fairlane and Chevy Bel-Air.

This collection is our tribute to all those designers that were brave enough to create extraordinary and controversial things because this is the right way to make something really unique and elegant.
