This past weekend I attended the 2012 MUPC Flat Tail Music Festival. The headliner was Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. I had never heard of them but apparently quite a few people have. In the picture and video below you can see the crowd stretching more than half way across the Memorial Union Quad.
After @leolaporte posted a link to Intel’s Museum of Me I had to try it out.
The Museum of Me uses data from your Facebook account and forms it into a video showcasing your Friends, Photos, Words, and Likes. After watching the video a couple of times, I decided to save it and upload it to YouTube to share.
Here is my video: [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C3vQPjsCYag&w=560&h=349]
According to the video description, the pig and monkey are both orphans and were put together at the zoo and became great friends. The original video (no music) can be found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-cMub_WlMc.
Download the “Baby Monkey (Going Backwards On a Pig)” song on iTunes.
