and out of moral duty I will list:
16. Back Together, by Lewis Taylor from Stoned (the title track is one of my favorite songs of the past 2 years)

And for reference I'll list Marko's playlist as well - a nice, diverse list. I commend Marko for not cheating with the Creed inclusion:)

Amazing public art

Discovered this public art project in Liverpool. An egg-shaped hole cut out of a building and fixed on a pivot so that the outside of the building can rotate and become the inside, and vice versa. Amazing visual and fantastic engineering. An article on the project is found here and if you scroll to the bottom you'll find a downloadable video of the piece making the full 360 degree turn.
