Happy Pi Day

To celebrate the annual Pi Day, and in the good tradition of geeky music by scientists, I would like to draw your attention to the American Pi Song (lyrics are found here), best listed to at 1:59 PM today.

    Oh dear. Here we have an example of a sound engineer confronted with a digital effects unit he’d never seen before, and, being a geek who likes gadgets, decided to have a fiddle. Hence the prominent reverb and delay on the vocals, which are unlistenable. Someone should have seized him roughly and divided his circumference by his diamater before he could have done any more damage.

    What is really missing on NN is a ‘Best of’ feature, where we could, for e.g., nominate comments like Henry’s for some kind of recognition.

    We’re working on it ;-)

    Pi green bottles hanging on the wall,
    Pi green bottles hanging on the wall,
    But if one green bottle should accidentally fall,

    @Matt – oh good! *rubs hands with glee*

    V good Bronwen,
    @Henry. Shocking, shocking control of the f/x by whomever mixed this.
    I ain’t done Pi since I left school so nothing to add really.
    On the geeky music front by scientists/PhDs however, thanks to the “Guardian Science Weekly Podcasts”:http://blogs.guardian.co.uk/science/category/podcast_1/ I bring you “GeekPop08″:http://www.null-hypothesis.co.uk/science/interactive/item/geekpop08
    Pers fav is “this”:http://www.null-hypothesis.co.uk/science//item/geek_pop_music_amateur_transplants
    and whilst some of their other material is interesting, it’s not suitable for a family website.

    Lovely, though the “PI”:http://www.osisoft.com/ being sung about is not our favourite mathematical constant, but a software application.
    And to add to the music festival, I bring you Serafina Steer’s “Cheap demo, bad science”:http://www.myspace.com/drumstreetsefa which has little to do with science, but is beautiful nevertheless.
