Complete History Of The Soviet Union, Arranged To The Melody Of Tetris This is hugely clever, highly entertaining and extremely funny – and you don’t get that often, on or off the internet. It is directed, animated, and edited by CHRIS LINCÉ and the music is supplied by Pig with the Face of a Boy. In the space of just over six minutes you will get a précis of the entire history of the Soviet Union –all done to a marvelously melodic Tetris soundtrack. What an unbeatable combination! You will find yourself tapping your feet as the decades whiz by, from Lenin to Gorbachev and, as I did, wincing a little at the ironies of history. You may find yourself, as I did, watching it several times and catching something new on each repeated viewing. Popular Rock Music Of The 90s – The Songs That Defined A Decade | The Popular Music of the 90s Music Revived – Rizzomusic.com Rizzo Music is back with a new article from the “Popular Music of the 90s” series. Last week I made a list of some of the best pop music of the decade and today I am going to share with you my list for the most popular rock music of the 90s. Out of all the lists and playlists I have created in the past, this was by far the hardest to come up with. There are so many great artists and songs that originated in the 90s and deciding on just 5 songs for every year was tough. I tried to get representation out of all the key rock artists and hopefully I didn’t forget anyone. After much debate I was able to compile this list of 90s rock music. How it works: For each genre of music I will rank the top 5 singles from each year in the 90s. Disclaimer: These rankings are based on my personal preferences, not on actual popularity. Interested in 90s Pop and Rap as well? Starting with the year 1999: 1. 1998: 1. 1997: 1. 1996: 1. “1979″ by Smashing Pumpkins 2. 1995: 1. 1994: 1. 1993: 1. 1992: 1. Agree?

The Indie Rock Playlist - Home Page TuneUp - Your Music Collection's New Best Friend This Awesome Urn Will Turn You into a Tree After You Die | Design for Good |... You don't find many designers working in the funeral business thinking about more creative ways for you to leave this world (and maybe they should be). However, the product designer Gerard Moline has combined the romantic notion of life after death with an eco solution to the dirty business of the actual, you know, transition. His Bios Urn is a biodegradable urn made from coconut shell, compacted peat and cellulose and inside it contains the seed of a tree. I, personally, would much rather leave behind a tree than a tombstone. Editor's Note: The Bios Urn is a patented design of Estudimoline, the design company of Gerard Moline, a Catalan artist and product designer who designed Bio Urn for animals in 1999.

A Portrait of Tobias Wong Using 13,138 Dice Canadian artist and designer Tobias Wong died last year at the young age of 35, or more specifically, 13,138 days. In tribute, his friend Frederick McSwain created this immense portrait of Wong entitled Die using 13,138 dice as part of the BrokenOff BrokenOff exhibition at Gallery R’Pure in NYC in memoriam to the artist during NY Design Week. McSwain via Core77: The idea of a die itself was appropriate—the randomness of life. The dice were first meticulously organized into individual sheets of 361 pieces and then laid to rest free on the floor without adhesive.
