Pygmy Lush – It’s A Good Day To Hide.

Feed off of the hive
But when people get ready
To lay down and die
It’s a good day to hide
It’s a good day to hide
It’s a good day to hide
Walk out of your class
And when your teacher gets savvy
Well, just give her that glance
It’s a good day to hide
It’s a good day to hide
It’s a good day to hide
Today is your time
This money frustration
It’s bound to find you
Good day to hide
Good day to hide
It’s a good day to hide
Feed off the hive, good day to hide
Feed off the hive, good day to hide
Feed off the hive, good day to hide
Feed off the hive, good day to hide

Oh, The Trumpholes Be Upsetty. Tsk.

The Trumpholes are so very upset over Moby’s latest, claiming it’s breeding hate and terrorists because, y’know, it’s not all fawning over the Tiny Tyrant. For assholes who love to shout “loser” and “snowflake” at people, they sure are a thin-skinned bunch, coming unglued over any criticism at all. One could say they are rather hysterical.

Raw Story has some of the Trumphole tweets.

Take a few moments from your day to get acquainted with Botanica, a blend of music, art, and science.

In 2012, Italian music group Deproducers launched a project of science-related albums, with the first, Planetario, exploring the topic of astrophysics. For their second musical science project, Botanica, Deproducers brought back the design studio Super Symmetry to create a multimedia live performance that highlights the beauty and artistic wonder of plants by merging music and scientific data. All told, there are 30 videos for Botanica, exploring things like plant roots, psychoactivity, and deforestation, amongst other topics, by way of grids, video footage, graphics, information, generative animation, and other visuals. Like Data Garden’s bio-reactive installation, Quartet, Botanica elevates the natural wonder of plants to a plane equal with human creativity.

While Planetario featured a collaboration with astrophysicist Fabio Peri, Botanica includes a collaboration with botanist Stefano Mancuso. During the live show, before the band begins to play, Mancuso gives a brief “science lesson” about the songs, and how each of the topics are interlinked. For each live show, Super Symmetry is tasked with visually integrating the musical and scientific aspects of the project.

There is much, much more at The Creators Project.

We could all use more Mr. Rogers.

Opeth – To Bid You Farewell.

To Bid You Farewell

I am awaiting the sunrise
Gazing modestly through the coldest morning
Once it came you lied
Embracing us over autumn’s proud treetops

I stand motionless
In a parade of falling rain
Your voice I cannot hear
As I am falling again

Devotion eludes
And in sadness I lumber
In my own ashes I am standing without a soul
She wept and whispered: “I know…”

We walked into the night
Am I to bid you farewell?

Why can’t you see that I try
When every tear I shed
Is for you?
