This is amazing and beautiful and just darn cool: tree rings translated into music.

Not that it’ll be a problem with the tree songs, but just in case, here’s how to get a song out of your head.

It’s always fun to consider similarities between music and math. Here’s some new neurological data on the subject.

Playing with scale (not the musical kind, the size kind). “Most of space is just space.” Also, I challenge you to make it to the end of the solar system. I failed at that task myself…so far, anyway.

OMG, I’m so obsessed with True Detective. I don’t know what I’m going to do with myself after Sunday. Thank god for GoT (remember this?)

Some much-deserved good press for drones (they’re good at other things too, besides just shooting at people from an impersonal distance…like catching a glimpse of humpback whale mammas snuggling their young — jump to 2:27 and watch to the end for that bit, but the beginning’s pretty awe-inspiring also.)
