Okay: Linkin Park's latest album is amazing, brilliant, beautiful. If you disagree, you're just plain wrong :)

I'm not even a huge fan of theirs to begin with.

http://www.marcussantiago.com/music/Blackstratblues-Surds_From_Hell.mp3 <--- The guy from Indian metal band Zero parodizing Bhangra by fusing it with metal licks. Hilarious.

Yat-Kha: Tuvan throat singing + rock + metal = epic win of unprecedented proportions.

Stop whatever you're doing right now and check out Yat-Kha.

"Yat-Kha was founded in Moscow in 1991, as a collaborative project between Kuvezin and Russian avant-garde, electronic composer Ivan Sokolovsky. The project blended traditional Tuvan folk music with post-modern rhythms and electronic effects. Kuvezin and Sokolovsky toured and played festivals, and eventually took the name “Yat-Kha,” which refers to a type of small, Central Asian zither similar to the Mongolian yatga and the Chinese guzheng, which Kuvezin plays in addition to the guitar. In 1993, they released a self-titled album on the General Records label." (Wikipedia article)

This link takes you to free downloadable samples from their website. Their CDs are really cheap, too.

Their most recent album is one filled with classic famous rock songs covered in their own style called ReCovers.

Give them a spin. Even if you don't like it, at least it's something totally different from what you're probably used to hearing.

This is a ballet performed by a one armed female and a one legged male dancer named Hand in Hand (I think). Any attempt to explain this any further defies words.

Got something in my eye, etc.

About a talented Korean pianist named Heeah Lee who was born with a total of four fingers in two pincer like hands, yet plays better than most of us ten fingered slackers.
