…Some music is unwanted?

Vitaly Komar, Alex Melamid and David Soldier conducted an online poll to find out what types of music people are most annoyed by. The list includes:

    Holiday music, bagpipes, pipe organ, a children’s chorus and the concept of children in general, Wal-Mart, cowboys, political jingoism, George Stephanopoulos, Coca Cola, bossanova synths, banjo ferocity, harp glissandos, oompah-ing tubas and much, much more.

After compiling this list, they then took all of the styles and lyrical subjects and combined them into a single track, called simply “The Most Unwanted Music”.

Can you survive a listen?

…Your tank isn’t always empty?

Tank On Empty

When your gas light comes on, how far can you go before it’s time to push?

Tank on Empty wants to help you answer that question, and it does so by polling other drivers to see how many miles they’ve gone on E.

By using this information, TOE hopes to create a database of how far each car can go before it’s time to fill up.
