Do you prefer listening to music with headphones or speakers? I've found that I have a much more personal connection with the music when I'm using headphones, but sometimes the expansive sound of the entire room being filled is worth it.

Say that you were going to start a record label ... today. You've got 5 spots to fill, and they've got to be filled up with bands that you could reasonably get on your label. That means, they're either unsigned or on a relatively small record label that you could probably buy out to get them to come on over (it's a hypothetical, have fun with it). You're not getting Bruce Springsteen, you're not gonna convince Thrice to come back, and you're not getting Brand New on your label. Gotta think harder than that. So, who do you put on your roster? Who are the 5 bands you sign?

My Fake Record Label Signings
1) Daybreaker
2) David Wazeter
3) Andy Burrows
4) House of Heroes
5) Cary...

Scientists have created a turntable that reads tree rings like music on an LP.
From the ArticleGerman artist Bartholomäus Traubeck recently debuted a record-player he developed which is capable of digitally reading tree-slices and translating them into surprisingly moving piano music. Tree-rings, of course, considered to be annual records of a tree's growth rate -- which in turn offer clues to the hardships and fruitful periods experienced over the life of the tree.

It's sort of a slow news day today. I've passed the time so far by posting some extremely random things on our twitter and facebook feeds. Yes, that is a Skrillex chest tattoo. But it's not really the same if I can't post something random in our news feed as well. So, if you're looking for some good old ski-time music for the upcoming holidays, check the replies for the best video since Rick Astley.

Songkick compiled a list of the "Hardest Working Bands of 2010." It used number of tour dates and miles traveled to determine which bands were the hardest working. Do you think that this list accurately reflects which bands are actually working the hardest? Which bands do you think deserve this distinction?
