Print Your Own Records

(YouTube link)

The in last couple of years, the music industry has seen the phoenix-like return of the vinyl LP. Once thought to be as extinct as the dinosaur or Leif Garrett's musical career, record labels have return to their jilted ex with gold-digging abandon.  While vinyl might be a throwback to a more analog time, it doesn't mean technology is standing still.  Enter Amanda Ghassei and the 3D printed record!

Using a 3D printer and a lotta know-how, Ghassaei has found a way to convert digital audio files into 3D printable 33rpm records that play on standard turntables with regular needles and at regular speeds.

How does it sound?  Check out the clip of Aphex Twin above and behold the future!

According to the article, bacon jam is "akin to mayonnaise" in so much as it is not just a full on lard fest. The Patch provides a full recipe for you to test drive and why not? Don't we owe to ourselves in this season of giving to give the gift of bacon? In jam form?

Yule: The Pagan Holiday!


It's the longest night of the year--and for our friends the Pagans, it's their time to shine in the holiday spotlight. Arguably one of the original holiday celebrations, Yule has been as misunderstood as the Pagans who honor it as a sacred day. So strap on your Liberty Cap, and get ready to learn a little about Odin, a little bit about the Oak King, and even a little more about yourself. Christie Haskell gives us a quick little primer in all things Winter Solstice. (And no, I will not pun on the word Yule.)

Growing up Pagan, the best part was I got to open my presents days before all my friends!
