LED Throwies

A friend showed me this a year or so ago..and I've loved the song and the idea ever since.

These are LED throwies. They are bundles of colored light bulbs with magnets on them so that if you wanted to, you could throw them on metal surfaces and they would stick. I always thought it'd be pretty cool to cover them in a waterproof material and scatter them in a lake.

The song is "Heartbeats" by Jose Gonzales. It's a cover of the song by the Knife. Which is also awesome. I'll post their version as well:

Oh and here's another song/video that's pretty interesting and a bit eerie by Fever Ray (Karin Elisabeth Dreijer Andersson) who is the lead vocalist of the Knife:

How to turn a mountain into a molehill.

How much further until the peak?

You take another step but it feels like you're taking a million.

The windchill is getting too harsh.

Your cheeks are raw and your fingers are numb.

You don't think you'll last in this air.

Or lack of.

And you tell yourself,

What's another step or slip or stumble on a rock,

Compared to the last?

What's another moment you meet with the cliff's edge?

Just finish this one and soon enough you'll be home.

Curled up on the shag rug like a kitten.

Or sipping your cocoa with a bite of cherry pie.

Comfort will return.
