Incredible Cover of Dream Theater's "Instrumedley"

Via / Source

Pretty sweet - I must say! It took me almost 2 minutes before I could tell it wasn't actual Dream Theater music. Then it took me another couple minutes before I realized there's a mirror in their studio, and it wasn't, in fact, 8 people playing.

Here's their cover of DT's Breaking All Illusions.

And here is one of their originals..

Daisuke Kurosawa Progressive Band is what Google translate tells me their name is.

Great job guys!

The powers that be of the Maldives Islands are going to build a golf course on one of their newly constructed man-made islands! It's expected to cost more than a half-a-billion dollars, and will be -essentially- the world's first floating golf course.

I must've missed the part where he outran the helicopter. But still and incredibly intense display of driving, and most importantly, speed.

Third Hatch of the Season (OC)


We have this nest on our porch which this family of bird comes back to every single year to re-build, and lay a few eggs. I don't remember any year in which they did it twice. This is the 3rd time we've had baby birdies in the nest this year. I guess the family must be getting smarter - and also hanging around.

Not a very good picture, but it was difficult, since they would hide upon seeing us. And no opportunity for another - I had to rescue one from the garage today, so they're learning to fly already. They'll be gone tomorrow.
