The 25 Most Powerful Songs of the Past 25 Years by Jennifer Drapkin, Kevin O'Donnell and Ky Henderson They’re not the most beautiful songs, or the most musically important. In fact, a few could literally drive you nuts.

Wizard of Oz / Pink Floyd synchronization now on YouTube July 25, 2012, 1:44 PM — This urban legend has been around for almost 20 years now - the idea that if you watch the movie "The Wizard of Oz" with the audio off, and then play Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" as the soundtrack, that the music and visuals from the movie magically synchronize. Rather than trying to time this perfectly with your home theater system, you can now watch this effect on YouTube, in its entirety. It's tough to pinpoint some exact moments where the synchronization appears, but I suppose with enough alcohol or other substances (kids, don't do drugs!), you can fill in a lot of the gaps.

Celtic Symbols and Celtic Signs Celtic Symbols and Signs (portal page) For centuries, Celtic symbols and signs held incredible power for the ancient Celts in every way of life. Today, we can learn about this power and utilize it by learning the language of Celtic symbols. The word "Celtic" refers to people who lived in Britain and Western Europe from 500 BC and 400 AD. Celts were of the Iron Age and lived in small villages which were led by warrior chiefs. The written records remaining from the Celts of Europe are scant, therefore signs and symbols can be hard to determine and trace. Regardless, thanks to time-honored traditions, (like story-telling) enough history was salvaged, and the Celtic heritage remains strong. In honor of the bravery and magic of the Celts, and to celebrate their rich history, I now provide you with a wealth of information. Note: Whenever possible, I have cited my sources of information (even when it's just my own observations or from my personal sources such as family and friends).
