Turn Off Your Mind, Relax and Float Downstream

Today I tried to queue up all my Beatles MP3s into winamp, but instead my office computer decided to open about 25 separate instances of winamp and play all the songs at once. This turned out to be quite a fascinating aural experiment, my boss who also happens to be a classical composer took my headphones for a few minutes and was riveted, finally remarking "that's actually really cool, it's like a kaleidoscope!"

As I started closing all the winamps in the task manager, removing the layers one by one, it shifted the kaleidoscope a little bit each time.. it was pretty awesome, to us music geeks. I'm gonna try and reproduce it sometime, when I have the means to record it, but I suspect it's one of those moments Eric Dolphy told us about, that appears and then is gone in the air, never to be captured again.

Some other items that are also totally ri-geek-ulous very cool. Everybody probably posted these a month ago, but I am unable to be in the loop right now:
