How-To: Easily Remove the Vocals from Most Songs 2015 Shortcut: When I wrote this article Audacity didn’t have an automatic center-panned vocal canceling effect… but now it does, so rather than do the stereo-separate / invert-one-track / play-both-as-mono trick (and that’s pretty much all there is to it), you should be able to find the Vocal Remover option in the Effects menu – but it’s more fun / interesting and can give better results if you do it yourself! =D I found this trick the other day whilst stumbling the Interwebs and thought I’d do a quick-write up w/ pictures to make it as easy as possible… For this exercise we’re going to be using a piece of free audio software called Audacity, which you can get for Linux, Windows and Mac. Update: If you’re trying this out on a Mac, please make sure you get Audacity 1.3 Beta or newer – the stable 1.2 version appears to have a missing equaliser decibal-range slider which you need towards the end of the process!

Video Pick: Stop-Motion Spaghetti Stop-motion filmmaker known as "Pes" turns candy corn into flames and bubble wrap into boiling water in his latest short, "Western Spaghetti." Pes takes everyday objects like Post-it Notes, a Rubik’s Cube and dollar bills and morphs them into key ingredients for a very unconventional meal in the clip (embedded). "The ‘western’ refers to this endless supply of worthless, disposable modern junk that populates so much of our world," said Pes in an e-mail conversation. "There is beauty to be found in these objects." The animation auteur’s work can also be seen in commercials, like a recent Coinstar advertisement that featured coins wriggling and shimmying their way to an overflowing change jar. But the real fun comes when Pes unleashes his creativity in fun, one-off shorts, which he frequently uploads to his website.
Top 10 Things That Determine Happiness photo: meddygarnet Happiness is, by nature, a subjective quality with a definition like a moving target. There is scant evidence — qualitative or quantitative — to lend convincing support to those life variables most critical in determining individual happiness, which is likely why past researchers committed to the scientific method rarely tried to tackle the subject. This is changing. Take, for example, the World Database of Happiness in Rotterdam, self-described as a, “continuous register of scientific research on subjective appreciation of life.”

The Silent City It's rare to get the full movie experience from a short. It's the nature of the medium.

The 48 Laws of Power Background Greene initially formulated some of the ideas in The 48 Laws of Power while working as a writer in Hollywood and concluding that today's power elite shared similar traits with powerful figures throughout history. In 1995, Greene worked as a writer at Fabrica, an art and media school, and met a book packager named Joost Elffers. Greene pitched a book about power to Elffers and six months later, Elffers requested that Greene write a treatment. Although Greene was unhappy in his current job, he was comfortable and saw the time needed to write a proper book proposal as too risky. However, at the time Greene was rereading his favorite biography about Julius Caesar and took inspiration from Caesar's decision to cross the Rubicon River and fight Pompey, thus inciting the Great Roman Civil War. Greene would follow Caesar's example and write the treatment, which later became The 48 Laws of Power. He would note this as the turning point of his life.
