Land on Titan with Phillip Glass (via BoingBoing). Why it’s Enriching: Eerie yet beautiful video of the Cassini-Huygens landing. How to Ruin the Moment: When it’s fully loaded, drag the slider back and forth… Landing!! Blast Off!! Landing!! Blast Off!! WEEE!!!

Pet Shop Boys (yes! they’re still around!) are releasing a new album and you can hear parts of it on their navigationally challenged site. I’ve heard it the entire album and if you’re even 1/10th a “Pet Head”, you’re going to be very very happy. Why its Enriching: I can’t bloody wait to see the video for “The Sodom and Gomarrah Show” How to Ruin the Moment: did I mention their dumb ass website? And no North American tour dates set yet.
Found this site buried in my favorites at work: Robot Gossip! This guy is in tune with mecca! Why it’s Enriching: Best robot feed I’ve found yet. He has some great photos. How to Ruin the Moment: Blogger site.
