Earworm: Istanbul (Not Constantinople) – Milan & Phoenix

I recently heard this on SiriusXM recently, I can’t believe this was covered.  I am so glad that Milan & Phoenix just did their own spin on it, and not ruin the song. (Unlike Pitbull and Christina Aguilera’sFeel This Moment” which sample’s what could arguably be one of the 80’s best songs, A-Ha‘s Take On Me, but that’s another topic for another time).  I enjoy this remake, and it’s a nice break from the daily drudgery of today’s pop music.  I first heard this song back in the 90’s from Loony Tunes.  I later found out it was a song by They Might Be Giants.  (they also did a bit for another TMBG song, Triangle Man).  It’s such a fun song, and i’ve been humming it on and off.  The video is fun too, playing on the old silent films.  Enjoy the video, as well as the Loony Tunes version.

Logitech officially tags its ‘G’ series peripherals for gaming.

Logitech‘s G series has been around a while and while associated with gaming, it was never officially for gaming. With the announcement they released a slew of new devices, mostly updates to their current offerings. Haven’t had a chance to check out what’s new under the hood, but they did refresh the aesthetics. I like how the ‘WASD‘ keys are grey ad the rest is black. I hope they didn’t change much since I just a G700 mouse and a G510 keyboard. I do recommend both for anyone looking, and it should be offered at a discounted price with te launch http://tinyurl.com/c3uyfwa
