Some interesting things I found recently:

Radiohead - These Are My Twisted Words

# These Are My Twisted Words – Free Radiohead song

Johnny writes:

So here's a new song, called 'These Are My Twisted Words'. We've been recording for a while, and this was one of the first we finished. We're pretty proud of it.

There's other stuff in various states of completion, but this is one we've been practicing, and which we'll probably play at this summer's concerts. Hope you like it.

The download includes a 320kbps mp3, some artwork and additional info.

Tool Chest

# H. O. Studley Masonic Tool Chest

If the workmanship in a tool chest is any indication of the maker's talent, then the craftsmanship of Master carpenter and stonemason H. O. Studley must have been awe-inspiring. Brother Henry O. Studley (1838-1925) built this magnificent wall-hung chest while employed by the Poole Piano Company of Quincy, Massachusetts. In an oak clamshell box adorned with rosewood, ebony, pearl and ivory, Studley kept both tools he made and a collection of the finest hand tools made prior to 1900, including a complete set of woodworking tools as well as machinist and stonemasonry tools. To pack the 300-plus tools into a case only 19 1/2 inches wide, 39 inches long and 9 1/2 inches deep, Studley devised a jigsaw puzzle arrangement of flip-up trays, fold-out layers and hidden compartments.

# Kind of Bloop: An 8-Bit Tribute to Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue
