Song of the Sea, a Cappella and Unanswered:
Imagine roaming the world's largest ocean year after year alone, calling out with the regularity of a metronome, and hearing no response.
For at least twelve years, the "52 hertz whale" has been calling out at a frequency much lower than that of any other known whale, and it has received no response. It travels alone. No one knows why the 52 hertz whale sounds so different than any known whale species, but theories run from it being deaf to being a hybrid to being malformed. Here's slightly more information on Kuro5hin.

... I think I need some cute after that.

How many baby pandas can the human brain handle at once? The answer is at least sixteen, since here are sixteen baby pandas all in a row, but I'm not sure what would happen to a human being if they raised the number to, like, twenty.

Here is a music video from Japan that combines those two hipster loves: crochet and ukuleles. If you like it, check out the related videos for more crochet stuffed animal ukulele stop motion action.

Music Time!

Thanks to Last.fm deciding that Malian music is apparently my favorite in the whole world, I've been on a huge Malian kick.

Sara - Rokia Traoré

I love the changes in tempo in this song. Rokia Traoré also has a unique and compelling voice. I'm not sure I've heard anyone else who sounds quite like it.

The whalesong made Fonzie stand up and take notice like no sound from the computer has ever done, including cat noises.

I think that creature might be an aquatic Fonzie.

That, or it just sounds so delicious.
