If the moon landing happened today

In honor of the 40th anniversery of the moon landing. Here is a very well done vid about what the news coverage would be like if it happened today:

My favorite part- “Suck it China!” in the Twitter feed.

Nirvana vs Rick Astley

DJ Morgoth is an excellent mashup creator and DJ based in Germany. He runs an awesome night called Mashup Your Bootz. He made this great mashup of Nirvana’s Smells like Teen Spirit with a touch of Rick Roll to it.

United Airlines Sucks

I’ve hated United ever since they screwed me over in November of ’08. I would write all about the ordeal but Dave Carroll has made an incredible song that pretty much cleverly sums up how much United Airlines sucks.

In the spring of 2008, Sons of Maxwell were traveling to Nebraska for a one-week tour and my Taylor guitar was witnessed being thrown by United Airlines baggage handlers in Chicago. I discovered later that the $3500 guitar was severely damaged. They didn’t deny the experience occurred but for nine months the various people I communicated with put the responsibility for dealing with the damage on everyone other than themselves and finally said they would do nothing to compensate me for my loss. So I promised the last person to finally say “no” to compensation (Ms. Irlweg) that I would write and produce three songs about my experience with United Airlines and make videos for each to be viewed online by anyone in the world. United: Song 1 is the first of those songs. United: Song 2 has been written and video production is underway. United: Song 3 is coming. I promise.
