Maria Aragon, whom you may remember from her cover of K’Naan’s “Waving Flag” from an HTC commercial a few years ago, tackles Lorde’s “Royals” - with multi-part harmonies. It is, quite simply, spectacular.
When a magnitude 6.8 earthquake shook Olympia, Wash., in 2001, shop owner Jason Ward discovered that a sand-tracing pendulum had recorded the vibrations in the image above.
Seismologists say that the “flower” at the center reflects the higher-frequency waves that arrived first; the outer, larger-amplitude oscillations record the lower-frequency waves that arrived later.
“You never think about an earthquake as being artistic — it’s violent and destructive,” Norman MacLeod, president of Gaelic Wolf Consulting in Port Townsend, told ABC News. “But in the middle of all that chaos, this fine, delicate artwork was created.”
This is great.
"Get scared. It will do you good. Smoke a bit, stare blankly at some ceilings, beat your head against some walls, refuse to see some people, paint and write. Get scared some more. Allow your little mind to do nothing but function. Stay inside, go out - I don’t care what you’ll do; but stay scared as hell. You will never be able to experience everything. So, please, do poetic justice to your soul and simply experience yourself."
Happy birthday, Albert Camus.
The scared as hell part. Yep.
This is absolutely remarkable. The inimitable PRINCE covering the incomparable Joni Mitchell. Wish for something better. I defy you. #ThereISaidIt
