Part Three of a ‘Study in Coat’. 

Anyone wanting to know more about my fight with armscythes can see it under the ‘how to make’ tag on my LJ.

Part One of the Coat Pattern Photoset Here

Part Two of the Coat Pattern Photoset Here

The original post, with the side by side comparison shots of my coat and Sherlock’s.

I changed my url, and now all my old links are gone because someone grabbed the old url. Like, wow - that fast!

Anyway, old links to the post aren’t working, so now I am reblogging some of my own old shit, SORRY FOLLOWERS, it’s just so people can find it again!

SOME DAY, MY LOVE. SOME DAY WE SHALL BE TOGETHER AT LAST.

Apologies to your dashboards - I may have already reblogged this, but I’m doing it again with tags I can search for so I can find it when I have a sewing machine.

The Infinite Jukebox

Hello, Tumblr. See this thing?

It is the best goddamned thing you’ve seen all day.

Say hello to the Infinite Jukebox, an experiment in looping songs. See those curves cutting through the circle? What this bad boy does is analyze the song for similar beats and sounds, then randomly skips between said beats forever. 

Yes, you heard me. Forever. With this piece of musical genius, you can literally play the same song for as long as you want - It will create the song that never ends.

Some examples include:

Technologic by Daft Punk

Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley

Sail by AWOLNATION

And if that’s not enough, you can upload your own MP3s to this bitch and it’ll loop those as well.

Have fun, kids.

Holy crap. Okay, everyone try this.

my second favorite fact is that there is a gene in vertebrates called “sonic hedgehog” and it is referenced in many articles and papers which decline to explain its name

THIS IS A REAL THING WHAT. There is also a retinal protein called pikachurin.

I worked with sonic hedgehog genes in the fly job. It is named that for exactly the reason you think it is.

As a biologist, I can confirm that sonic hedgehog is one of the most important genes in embryonic development, shaping the form of our brain, spine, and limbs. We would not be able to run without sonic hedgehog.
