In what has just become my favourite thing Fuse TV has ever done, bassist/vocalist Troy Sanders of Mastodon gives you an in-depth guide to…. mastodons. This video popped up about a year ago and perhaps not too many people caught wind of it, which is a shame – because it made my day. To thwart further travesties, I’ve decided to start this new series to bring you all gems such as this that have slipped through the cracks. We’ll cover the funny, the amazing, and the downright bizarre.
I hope you all learn something from this video.
Here’s another for you. The 3D re-release of Jurassic Park reminded of me of the webpage for the radio station I used to work at while in college. On the page, the only post for years was the Jurassic Park theme played 1,000 times slower. Why this was there and why it remained the only post for so long, no one knew. Whether or not you are a fan of the film, you must check this out. It is beautiful. Whoever did this – bravo. You might not expect the theme to sound good stretched into just over 54 minutes, but it is worth every second of listening. Play it on some good speakers or with some fine headphones and enjoy the majesty of John Williams‘ iconic work like never before.
