John Fassold critics the Chainsmokers the only way the current generation knows how: making fun of them. The tip is to be what I am everyday: trying to be edgy but also not edgy.

Tree stumps look kind of like a record, right? So what would they sound like if played. It makes a tortured, yet beautiful sound of piano keys as it spins, using optics instead of a needle to read the notes:
The rings of a trunk reveal the age of the tree, and environmental conditions like rainfall levels, disease, and even forest fires. Light-colored rings indicate growth spurts, while darker marks show times of a slowdown.
Each slice is unique — a glimpse into the story of a tree’s past. Bartholomäus Traubeck wondered what story those trees would tell. So he created equipment that could translate those rings into music on a record player. But instead of a needle, an optical sensor reads the wood’s color and texture. Then, algorithms convert those variations into notes on a scale, which is mapped to a piano synthesizer and played.
This isn’t a simulation, it’s a close up of real frog egg undergoing cell division, condensed from 33 hours of footage into 23 seconds. Amazing to think everything we are was once something very much like this.
There’s a reason everyone at my University dorm fought tooth and nail to get Nickelodeon, and by extension Spongebob on our TV.
