Pink Floyd and Other Modern Music Performed on a Traditional Korean Instrument, The Gayageum

You may have already seen these videos. I noticed this Pink Floyd on the gayageum over at Boing! Boing!, saved it for further exploration and the next day found even more at Open Culture. Videos go viral for many reasons, in this case, the reason is Luna Lee’s talent.

More information, and videos, after the break. Check out how she nails the guitar parts about 2:30 in.

Edible Anatomically Correct Hearts!

The Table: Valentine's Day Dinner

In a few short weeks, another holiday that the greeting card industry, florists, jewlers and chocolatiers live for…  The time of attempts to seduce Cupid and live some romance.  I swear, if this were more local, I would buy one just to do a zombie scene.  Yeah, I said zombie.

I don’t know if I have the heart to see how well this unique, edible delight would weather the crossing of the ocean.  Novelties on Valentines Day, in my opinion, have always been kewl.  In the past, I have mentioned neat novel sight like Heartmaker, which is still up and running.  I simply must share this one I originally found over at Boing! Boing!

Edible, anatomically correct hearts.  Yum, yum, yum…

However, this one really takes the cake.  Well, technically it is a cake.

“They are scarily realistic, but delicious with a red velvet sponge, cream cheese frosting and blackcurrant & cherry ‘blood’.”

Uniquely combining Night of the Living Dead with the throws of cupid,  Lily Vanilli Cake Fight presents “Valentine’s Bleeding Hearts“.  The hearts are anatomically correct and appear to be freshly removed from someone’s chest.   They cost 7 pounds each and a portion of that is going charity.  You can read more about over at the blog post.

I also think they should also market this at Halloween.  This picture could easily be captions “Brains?” and, who knows, it could happen, zombies are not famous for high IQs.
