he will he will rock you

err, dunno how to make that a link like you whiz kids.

Anyway, some guy recorded Bohemian Rhapsody using only old PC bits. An HP ScanJet 3C fills in for Queen's Freddie Mercury on lead vocals, while a Texas Instrument TI-99/4a takes Brian May's job as lead guitar. Accompanying organ and piano is an Atari 800XL, and an 8-inch floppy disk replaces Jon Deacon on bass. Roger Taylor's percussion is meanwhile faithfully recreated by a 3.5-inch hard drive.

hee hee, when you're watching a video on youtube, on the right hand side, you should see a column with the info about the clip, etc. Somewhere in there you should see a box that says "URL", and under that there should be "embed". That's HTML code. Copy and paste that code into your 'SPill post draft (make sure you're in "edit HTML" mode, not "compose"), and voilĂ .

No I'm sorry - that just makes me want to back away carefully and quietly before the nutter notices there's fresh meat to talk to!

There are a lot of crazy very smart people out there, aren't there? I wonder how long it took him to figure it all out. I like the bass(?) notes, which are all buzzy and growly. And I have to admit I like that golden-green color--it's in all the old computers, and the lighting is like that too--it's like he was matching the film stock of movies from around when these computers were in style.

Did you see the bit in the Gruniad about the kids who remade "Raiders of the Lost Ark"?
