Screen shot 2012 04 30 at 7.47.30 PM 605x325 The reproduction of the 1960s IBM Wall Clock IBM clock 1960s

A cool video about the reproduction of the iconic, perfectly designed 1960′s IBM wall clock. The lowdown: “Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co. partnered with IBM to exclusively produce their iconic 1960s standard issue wall clock. The clock is a faithful reproduction of the classic IBM clocks found in offices, warehouses and schools during the mid-20th century. Hand assembled in Schoolhouse Electric’s Portland, Oregon Factory, it is constructed with a USA made spun steel case, domed glass lens, and the original graphic hands and faceplate design. Operated by a Quartz movement with a red, continuous sweep second hand.”

Brian Wilson on ‘Pet Sounds’: Not as good as The Beatles’ ‘Rubber Soul’

BrianWilsonPA210411 Brian Wilson on Pet Sounds: Not as good as The Beatles Rubber Soul  rubber soul revolver pet sounds Brian Wilson Beatles

And we think that neither are as good as Revolver, but then again, Brian Wilson may be onto something in that Rubber Soul began the thread that led to the Beatles making some of the most experimental pop of the era, maybe ever. But, most people in the music critic sphere call Pet Sounds the grand statement of American music in the 1960s, maybe ever, so Brian doesn’t have to feel bad.

The Lost Beatles Photographs as a book

We really want to get our hands on a copy of the new book, The Lost Beatles Photographs, featuring never-before-seen shots of the band’s earliest American tours during the 1960s. There is just some nice candid moments with a band at the absolute height, right before they decided never to tour again, so you actually get to see real backstage moments as opposed to promotional or studio shots. A must.

Sixties Saturday: The Rolling Stones “Get Off Of My Cloud”

One of the greatest songs we can think of from the 1960s, The Rolling Stones’ “Get Off of My Cloud” even today feels fresh and full of youth. Even though Keith Richards doesn’t like it. Released in November 1965, it topped the charts in both the US and UK.
