Ambiancé: The world's longest ever film gets a seven hour trailer
"Swedish director Anders Weberg has released a second full-length trailer for his upcoming experimental film Ambiancé and it runs for a total of 439 minutes."
I wouldn't want to sit through this trailer before the actual film.

In the USA, you can only purchase wild blueberries from Maine or Canada.
In 2007, direct and indirect economic impact of the wild blueberry industry in Maine totaled $250 million, so wild blueberries make a major contribution to Maine’s economy.
Maine’s 44,000 acres of wild blueberries grow naturally in fields and barrens that stretch along the Downeast coast to the state’s southwest corner. Adapted to Maine’s naturally acid, low fertility soils and challenging winters, wild blueberries are a low input crop requiring minimal management.
That's a lot of blueberries.Don't hate me because I'm right and you're not.

Corey Taylor, the lead singer of Stone Sour (and, more famously, of Slipknot), has the second largest confirmed vocal range in popular music, at 5 octaves and 5 1/2 notes. Highest is Mike Patton of Faith No More (which I knew already), at six octaves and 1/2 note.

I wasn't surprised by Mike Patton, because Faith No More is so experimental and that provides him with lots of room to explore his vocal range on stage. Corey Taylor surprises me a lot, though.
Edit: Per this video, a lot of it is vocal fry. So... I call bullshit. No bullshit re: Mike Patton though, his range is actually phenomenal.

While both terms apparently go back to the days of the plague in old Venice, the German word Lazarett and the English lazaret/lazaretto are false friends. A Lazarett is a (often mobile) military hospital while a lazaret is a quarantine station.

To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.

Music provides one of the clearest examples of a much deeper relation between mathematics and human experience.

Postmortem predation: consumption of a dead body after death by animals. The starving pet of a person who died in their home will eat their owner's body. Dogs typically wait a couple of days before resorting to eating you out of necessity. Cats are less sentimental creatures and find that a day or two is the appropriate amount of time to wait before feasting on your face.I FEEL ALRIGHT

The first online troll as a fellow with the handle "Dr. Benway". He'd post "Grateful Dead references and droll non sequiturs" on Community Memory, the first electronic bulletin board. His identify has not been uncovered.
