Basketball Jones. "I wouldn't be talking to you if it wasn't for basketball," Jim Jones Jr. says. "It spared my life." The words are not an empty cliché. They are true. Basketball kept this family alive, and now [his son] Rob and basketball are helping restore honor to the family name. Why? Because the name "Jones" can be found in the history books and in news coverage from 29 years ago, linked to an infamous place called Jonestown.
Fundamentalists Hate Noah's Ark - The story of Noah and the Ark leaves much to be desired, from many different fields of knowledge.

Flight of the Bumblebee (YouTube videos ahead.) As God intended. On an electric guitar at 201 bpm. On a 7-string bass. On the accordion. On 8 pianos. On the marimba. Played by Europe. Played (in a manner of speaking) by high school students on a banjo, baritone saxophone, an E flat clarinet and an accordion.

First Concert Memories. What people remember is all the stuff around the concert; begging your mom to let you go, sitting next to intimidating weirdos, rocking your concert T-shirt the next week at school, etc. These are the memories that endure. From the blue.
Haunting 101 For some, it's not enough to buy a cardboard witch to hang on the door for their spooky holiday decorating. They're coating armatures (and, accidentally, themselves) in monster mud to build the Grim Reaper or a well. They sculpt tombstones and make glowing water (YouTube). My favorite is the flying crank ghost(YouTube). more inside
Mutating pictures.
The Birotron Keyboard was inspired by the Mellotron but ran via 8-track tape cartridges. The story of it's creation on the cusp of electronica is a great read. And there's a famous musician in it, too. (Not the keyboard.) via, as usual, The Blueotron
