It may may be a few hours late but this week’s Free Music Friday is an absolute must for any fellow Pink Floyd fans, along with anyone who always loved a bit of Nintendo Game Boy action.
Brought to you by the self proclaimed “video game net label”, Pterodactyl Squad
has asked a bunch of producers to reproduce an 8-bit version of each track from my favourite album of all time, Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon.
The resulting digital homage is both hilarious and awesome, as are the digital reproductions of other epic metal bands and even a Weezer classic.
If you haven’t yet discovered the genius of Radiolab, do your ears a flavour.

Let’s face it – most of us hate wearing bike helmets. They’re uncomfortable, ugly and they ruin your blow wave.
Because of this, I’m really digging the ‘Chieftain’ airbag collar designed to take the place of traditional helmets, while still keeping your head in one piece if you find yourself up close and personal with the pavement or a car.
Created by Swedish designers Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin, the Chieftain wraps around the cyclist’s neck like a scarf and deploys in the form of a hood when its built-in sensors detect a potential head impact. The sensors pick up on everything from your standard over-the-handlebars stack, to a rear collision and even the old ‘falling from bike sideways (otherwise known as the ‘ride home from the pub impact’)’.
While the predicted price is a steep 350 Euros, I’m adding one of these babies to my wish list right now.
As someone who grew up skateboarding from the age of 5, I can usually spot a talented rider even from a distance.
Blind Freddie couldn’t miss these two.
They’re not just unbelievably good skaters… They are lady killing twins.
This chick OWNS youtube video blogging. She’s hot, she’s funny and she doesn’t really care if you don’t dig it because she’d be doing it anyway.
Now that’s the kind of stuff worth watching.
I don’t think she works at ebabay anymore…
Not much on Internet TV is worth watching, but I liked this idea.
These guys ask for letters from people who are pissed off about something…
Then ask an actor to get upset about it for them.

Do one thing so well, and make it so recognisable that people would understand and enjoy it forwards and even backwards.
have taken some of the world’s best known websites and flipped them around, showing the awesome world that is going on just beyond the screen.
While it’s already become painfully obvious that our Free Music Friday feature may not happen EVERY Friday, what we can promise is some seriously hot shit when it does eventually drop.
This hip-hop instrumental mixtape from New York producer Clams Casino
is chock full of the kind of epic soundscapes that make you wish you can run harder, rhyme faster or maybe even live a little better.
Created in the modernisto environment of his Rhode Island attic, it could easily be mistaken as a demo tape from artists as wide-ranging as The Knife & Bjork to Mobb Deep, for whom Clams Casino has already produced beats.

You may have seen this already but I just wanted to blow your mind all over again…
As Tim Ferriss puts it “if you want to sell books these days, make a good trailer”.
Every day while posting on this blog, I have to restrain myself from posting more and more TED videos.
Today, I gave in.
Let this firefighter make your day in just five minutes.
