Worldengine, Arida Vortex, Dream Theater, Guitar World & Whitechapel contests, coffee socks, wake-up lights, and gamers saving the real world




#nowplaying Worldengine “Dark Matters” … amazing crossover prog-rock from Brazil with male and female vocals, heavy darkness, but long atmospheric passages. This is the sound of modern progressive music. Did I mention that the album is “name your price”? So you have no excuse. Download it now!





Also #nowplaying Arida Vortex “Invisible Tension” … melodic power-metal from Russia. Typical gallop, falsetto vocals, keyboards, but some flamenco inspired jazz guitar thrown in here and there. Above average and well produced, and only $5 from Metalism Records.





Dream Theater have released their fourth “in the studio” video promoting the upcoming self-titled album. Here’s all four of them, plus the "Enemy Inside" video…









Guitar World has a Whitechapel guitar contest and a “ton of boutique pedals” contest that you need to sign up for.






Would you like some coffee in your socks?




Do you hate your alarm clock’s buzzer or ringtone as much as I do? How about a wake-up light that plugs into your smartphone?







And lastly, do you think gamers could save the real world? Jane McGonigal and the Internet Response League (IRL) sure think so.

  1. I had been off paintings due to knee damage from running in creation. I'd all day long to rehearse and hone my guitar competencies, however, it had not been too long before I had been gaining knowledge of guitars and seeking to discern out how they have been constructed. Brooks Guitar Restoration classic beat-up guitar if I should fix it and make it playable once again
