Evidently There Were More Than A Couple Links

Here we have the first concert of video game music performed by a major symphony. Tunes include orchestrations of Mario™, Zelda®, Halo®, Metal Gear Solid®, Warcraft®, Castlevania®, Sonic™, Tron, Tomb Raider®, Advent Rising, Beyond Good & Evil™, Kingdom Hearts, God of War™, Final Fantasy®, EverQuest® II, a special retro arcade segment, and more. Check out their website for more.

Here's a somewhat long, but really informative interview about all, or most of at least, the cool shit that's going into the Xbox 360. Lot's of good info about things like the interface, which helps you organize things like music that you've put on the machine or even meet people that are of about the same skill level as you in an online game. Good stuff if you're at all interested in the 360.

Thanks to Evil Avatar again for those links.

I'm not sure how excited, if at all, I should be when I read that people think pineaples might fight off cancer in people and that there might be an AIDS vaccine. Science people, let me know what you think!

Lamark was right?

Thanks to /. for those links.

Yeah, I was at the Hollywood Bowl for the 4th (just a couple days before this concert) and saw the advertisment in the program. The L.A. Phil playing video game music, accompanied by a choir, laser show, live action, and video segments of the games...actually sounded pretty cool. Too bad I couldn't go....As far as the cancer and AIDS drugs are concerned, here's hoping that they are some kind of miracle cures, but it's really too early to get excited about one drug that has yet to have a clinical trial, and another with a trial that included a sample size of only 40 people.
