100-Year-Old, Aviation Themed Sheet Music Covers

From Gizmodo –

Yes, music takes you places, and this was true 100 years ago too, when sheet music was the most widespread form of distributing popular music. And in the age of the Wright brothers, when powered flight started to gain ground, aviation became a significant theme in popular music. The following collection proves this very well. It is amazing and weird at the same time to see how the vision of aviation technology and early 20th century popular music were fitted together in these sheet music covers depicting travellers–both men and women–aboard all kind of aircraft–no matter lighter or heavier than air–in flight, even in outer space.

Music For Cats – It’s A Real Thing

cat_music_s

According to The Atlantic –

Have you ever tried grooving with your cat to some song, only to have your feline friend shake you off? Perhaps your pet is apathetic about music. Typical. But new research shows that cats do enjoy music; just not the stuff humans tend to pick. A team of psychologists at the University of Wisconsin created custom music designed to appeal to cats by mixing beats that fall into the same frequency range that cats use to communicate with one another. The songs also have a tempo  similar to the beat that cats purr to.
