Super clear, super thin, super durable: Zymergen bends it like Beckham, electronics-wise 

Move over, Impossible Whopper. Zymergen has made an impossible material, and something almost as rare in the biobased world, you can actually order it the day you first hear about it. Yep, Zymergen’s running the best play that you’d ever find in the Steve Jobs playbook, the “it’s insanely great, and call now to order” one. It’s called Hyaline, which qualifies as the shortest word coined using “aline’ as a suffix that you can get a trademark on, that come along in (I think) two generations. Roll...

A TIMELESS MEMORY: Honda CL350F by Northbilt Customs

Written by Ricky Ventaglio “You say you want a revolution. Well, you know, we all want to change the world” sang John Lennon in 1968. Honda Motor Co., Ltd. took Lennon’s words on board and between 1972 and 1974 the factory produced what would change the face of motorcycle racing forever. Soichiro Honda’s deepest memories were of the golden days of Honda racing, following his attendance at the Isle of Man TT competition in 1954. Here, his decision that the factory would build not Twins or Singl...

'He didn't even pretend to let us win'… Growing up with the world's biggest stars, by their children

The sons and daughters of John Wayne, John Lennon, Caitlyn Jenner and others tell us what it was like to grow up with a world-famous dadA lot of the happy memories of my father are from the late 1960s at Kenwood, the old Tudor house we had in Surrey, when I was a little boy.

John Lennon called this song "one of the greatest strange records"

Rosie and the Originals' "Angel Baby" (1960) is a classic doo wop ballad, beloved (and covered) by John Lennon. Lennon was a fan of the flipside of that record too, "Give Me Love," but only because it's wonderfully awful. From Jonathan Cott's book Days That I Remember: Spending Time with John Lennon & Yoko Ono: "This is really one of the greatest strange records,” [Lennon] remarked. “It's all just out of beat, and everyone misses it. The A side was the hit, 'Angel Baby'— which is one o...

Steve Martin gets it just right — the celebrity response to the coronavirus.

I won't call attention to celebrities who've gotten it wrong — other than to say Gal Gadot — but here's a celebrity doing it as close as I can imagine — and I do mean imagine — to perfect — right down to the natural soft setting and the delicate colors of his clothes and the gentle smile....

Josh Gad, Jake Johnson & Gal Gadot Try to Make Coronavirus Quarantine a Little More Tolerable

It’s going to be a rough couple months as everyone in the United States (hopefully) spends as much time at home as possible. Cities like Los Angeles are getting a little more strict about keeping people at home in order to slow the spread of coronavirus around the country, and it’s only a matter of time before everyone else follows suit. Thankfully, even though production is shut down on movies and TV right now, some celebrities are taking the time to make self-quarantine and social distancing ...

Shut-in celebrities sing "imagine no possessions" on Twitter. Twitterverse goes bananas over the perceived tone-deafness

A group of celebrities, including Gal Gadot, Will Ferrell, Mark Ruffalo, James Marsden, Lynda Carter, Jamie Dornan, and Amy Adams, posted a video of each of them, in their isolation, signing lines from John Lennon's "Imagine." The attempted message was that we're all in this together, we will get through this, but the Twitter response was immediate and brutal. It was the line "imagine no possessions" that triggered the most vitriol. People seeing this tweet who are currently out of work and unde...

Co. Down, Northern Ireland, tour

Ireland is often called the land of saints and scholars. Without a doubt, the most famous among these is St. Patrick, or Naomh Pádraig to give him his Irish name. A lot of mythology surrounds Ireland’s best-known saint and first bishop. For one, he probably didn’t banish the snakes from the Emerald Isle. For another, he definitely never dyed a pint of beer green in his life. But something we know is that in the fourth century, St. Patrick worked, lived, and was buried in County Down, Northern...

Why Yoko Ono once performed backup vocals for "Rock Lobster" onstage with The B-52's

In February 2002, Yoko Ono took the stage with the B-52's during a New York performance of "Rock Lobster." The story about how she got there is fascinating and I'm surprised this is the first time I'm hearing of it. It begins in June 1980 when John Lennon heard the song and was inspired to start making music again after a long creative lull. The song's unusual backing vocals reminded him of Yoko Ono's style. John Lennon, in a 1980 Rolling Stone interview: "I was at a dance club one night in ...

Meet the Liverbirds, Britain’s First Female (and Now Forgotten) Rock Band

We never ever got as famous as the Beatles. But we started as friends, and we ended as friends. —Sylvia Saunders, The Liverbirds’ drummer John Lennon (a member of a band who in a parallel universe might’ve been billed as the male Liverbirds) announced that the all-female quartet would fail, a deeply inaccurate prediction. The band got a lot of attention, toured with The Kinks and The Rolling Stones, dismissed Brian Epstein when he pooh-poohed their desire to play in Hamburg, rejected an ...

An algorithm produced every possible melody. Now its creators want to destroy songwriter copyrights.

A computer coder calculated all of the possible 8-measure, 12-beat melodies possible from Western music's 12 notes.The coder and a lawyer decided to claim ownership of every song melody ever.The two of them submitted all of these songs into the public domain so no one could ever be found in court to be plagiarizing a song. If we learned anything at all from Jurassic Park, it's that just because you can do something doesn't mean you should do it. Even so, coder Noah Rubin and lawyer Damien Riehl...

'Meat Bones Chemicals Electricity' Is Eamon Ra's Love Letter to '60s Psych-Pop

But despite the occasional existence-pondering, Nordquist is all too happy just making good, classic pop music. The lyrics – also another throwback, on a thematic level – are almost maddeningly positive. On the winsome "Kiss Someone You Love", he sings, "The train station agent / Announcing from above / Said they don't know when you're coming back / So kiss someone you love." On the bluesy, lazy "Fun to Be Had" – which sounds like Andy Partridge channeling John Lennon – Nordquist is in total g...

"'Damsel in Distress' is an homage to Joni Mitchell in some ways, particularly the structure."

"My husband and I now live in Laurel Canyon. I wasn’t that familiar with Joni’s music but Jörn became obsessed and took me on a journey into her music. We ended up hanging out with her and I get now why she’s one of the greats. So it’s part Laurel Canyon, part a song about a personal relationship that I’m trying to come to terms with, but mostly my Mitchell virginity being broken."Said Rufus Wainwright, quoted in (Pitchfork).Here's the song:I got there via my son John's Facebook post, where so...

My Trip to Vietnam, Singapore, and Qatar

For three weeks in late January and early February, I travelled to Asia, spending two weeks in Saigon, a few days in Singapore, and about 48 hours in Doha, Qatar. Here are some of the things I saw and did and ate. Note: this is a long post, maybe the longest thing I’ve posted here in many years. But I think it’s a quick read — pack a snack, stay hydrated, and you’ll be alright. Saigon, Vietnam I flew to Saigon via Doha on Qatar Airways.
