Thanks Oksana. 

Metallica - Through the never

Metallica movie? In IMAX 3D? You had us at Metallica movie in IMAX 3D. The bands drummer Lars Ulrich is touting this as a modern day 'Song Remains the Same', not sure when it comes out in Australia but we're lined up at the cinema right now. Sent from my iPhone.

Space Oddity... in space.

I suppose if I was a man in space, I'd grow a moustache and make YouTube videos as well.  Nice find, Tom H.

Chill out to Justin Bieber

I can guarantee this will be the only time I will suggest you listen to Justin Bieber. In a happy accident, producer Nick Pittsinger slowed Bieber's “U Smile” down 800% to create the ultimate silk purse out of a sow's ear. The result is a beautifully hypnotic and relaxing ambient piece. The only thing missing is the smell of massage oil and the sound of whales mating.
