B.B. King, Zero 7 and Jupiter One: Music Links for the Weekend.

A Study has confirmed what we already know to be true: We stop caring about popular music sometime in our thirties. Men drop out faster than women do, apparently.
Which means the last band I got into will probably be the Black Keys. I’m okay with that.

B.B. King, RIP. His first recording was in 1949:

Looks like I’ll be listening to Live at the Regal sometime this weekend.

They let you make any old stuff on the YooToobz. I was farting around with Google+ yesterday, because Facebook is getting increasingly on my nerves. That led to farting around on my YouTube channel, and in the space of about an hour, I made two videos. The first was done with my laptop’s MovieMaker, using any old images I happened to have on hand, with a Zero 7 tune from my iTunes as audio:

The second I made entirely on YouTube, using b-roll footage and music that was under their Creative Commons License. I slapped some filters on it, timed the transitions to shifts in the music, and Voila:

The band is called Jupiter One. It has a nice feel to it. I don’t know why it’s called “Riot”, but it is. Enjoy.

  1. I broke that mould. The Killers and Interpol in my forties, and Hammock in my fifties.
    Good choices on those clips, especially the second one. Good tune. You could play a little more with the visuals and you wouldn’t do it any harm.
