@Fred Yes, playing the song "Snake Eyes". I wasn't sure if it was something that the put together just for the show. Lynch didn't give it the same treatment that other bands have had on the show so far. Seemed more like a score than a highlighted song.

There's a track I spent years looking for but it hadn't been released yet. Sigur Ros used to close their shows with it. It eventually became the 8th track on their () album, so I always think of it as (8). I think it has a real title by now, so it doesn't count

Elementary schools are freaking out about fidget spinners. No violence in shopping malls, but apparently there have been playground injuries.

They even have bluetooth fidget spinners now. Imagine spinning one to the sounds of Darude’s “Sandstorm” spinning and all that? Cost like $12 to $15 but might be a worthy investment for some.

i dont have a good demo in front on me but one of my students last semester built a tremelo whose speed was controlled by the guitar's volume envelope, so it would speed up or slow down in real time based on how loud or soft you play. pretty cool.
