Picture 1Someone on Facebook posted a link to this site called Incredibox and, being the inquisitive person that I am, I clicked through to check it out.  A half hour later, I came to the conclusion that this is in the top 10 of my favorite music websites.  At first I had no idea what it was and I had to play around with it by dragging the little arrows and circle-ish items from the bottom up to the cartoon guys but then I realized that I was making my own beatbox.  I could add elements of instruments, percussion, chorus, effects and more.  You can mix it up move them around and create totally original sounds.  Mer and I spent a good part of our days playing with this.  Yay, bi-coastal, global fun!

Post Script. Def try the shuffle mode.

Ever wonder what would happen if a High School Freshman with only one semester of introductory French was asked to translate the trailer for Coco Before Chanel, staring Amelie‘s Audrey Tautou as legendary designer Coco Chanel? Neither did I, but the result is brilliant.  I laughed, I cried — but mostly I just laughed.
