6 Things You Must Know When Buying a Vinyl Turntable Vinyl is coming back in a big way. Record sales in the first half of 2015 grew by 52%, putting the industry on course for its best year since 1994. And vinyl sales in the US are now worth more than the free music services from Spotify, YouTube, and Vevo combined. Mood & Music Musical preference is unique to the listener. There are so many different cultures and personalities–which makes it quite difficult to decide what to listen to. In addition to different tastes in music, there are times and places where it may not be appropriate to play something. A scene at the airport would be hard to imagine if one was able to hear hit rap songs over the PA system. A company like Toys’R’Us would not play rock music for their customers. Personally, some kind of rock is preferred.

G2.1Nu 2013 - TopTenREVIEWS The Zoom GN2.1Nu is small and sweet. You can expect some limitations because of the size – two footswitches don't allow for intricate effect changes in a live performance. Nevertheless, this guitar effect pedal comes with clever software, great community support and tons of effects. With 30 amp simulators, a drum machine and a great tone library (including several from master guitarist Steve Vai), this tenacious box is much bigger than its 6 pounds might suggest. The Zoom G2.1Nu is not ideal as a hub for all your other accessories – it works best as a travel sized alternative to those accessories.

A Visual History of Google Algorithm Updates [Infographic] In the early days, Google's search engine wasn't nearly as powerful or accurate as it is today. I'm talking back in the late 90s and early 00s, when search engines were little more than keyword-matching and link-counting machines. Ranking highly in search results could be accomplished by essentially using a simple, two-step procedure: Step 1: Stuff your keyword phrase into your website as many times as possible.Step 2: Get as many gosh-darn inbound links as you possibly could. For those early "SEO gurus" who gamed the system -- achieving high rankings while adding little value for actual searchers -- the fun wouldn't last. Every time Google found a weakness in its ability to deliver relevant, high-quality search results, they made fixes to address it.

Jimi Hendrix: Art by Jean Giraud, aka Moebius The best thing that can happen in art is when a huge artist pays a homage to another huge artist – then two different worlds collide, creating a crossover that puts a smile on the faces of both, the rock music and comic book fans. The Jimi Hendrix series is a lesser known work of Moebius but still pretty impressive. In 1975, Moebius created the gatefold cover for the French compilation “Jimi Hendrix/1 Are You Experienced, Axis: Bold As Love”. A part of Moebius work was also used for the cover of the ’95 compilation “Voodoo Soup”. Rating: +4 (from 4 votes)

This Is Your Brain On Music [Infographic] We know music can profoundly affect us, whether you're the type who gets weepy at a classical performance or kicks a child at a metal show. But what exactly is going on in our brains when that happens? This cartoony infographic from the University of Florida breaks it down, from the ear to the brain. It also includes some interesting notes about the correlation between brainwaves and emotions. Low beta waves, for example, are associated with concentration and alertness, while alpha waves are associated with relaxation and daydreams. But maybe take some of this stuff with a grain of salt: Taking a class on music education isn't necessarily going to improve your SAT scores, even if picking up the trombone is correlated with bubbling in the right answers.
