A Cappella Science Bohemian Gravity

Here’s an awesome little a capella summary of string theory sung in many, many parts to the tune of Queen‘s “Bohemian Rhapsody.” It was compiled at McGill University by Canadian physics student Timothy Blaise, who recently completed his Master’s Degree.

Queen - Freddie Mercury -Freddie for a Day

Metal Hammer in the UK reported today that the rock group Queen is going to have a special performance commemorating the tenth anniversary of the musical We Will Rock You, which is based on the quartet, and as an added “bonus”, will have a holographic image of their late singer Freddie Mercury, accompanying them.

Guitarist and co-founder of the group Brian May confirmed the news to BBC Television in England, telling them that “It’s a little unfortunate that they did that thing with Tupac as we’ve been trying to make Freddie appear on the stage for quite a while.” May was referring to the guest “appearance” made by a Tupac Shakur hologram at the Coachella Festival, held here in America last month. May also went on to state that the Mercury hologram would not sport the same technology used to bring Tupac to eerie life on stage, but Mercury’s effect would be achieved as an “optical illusion of sorts.”

2011 MTV Video Music Awards: Watch Queen’s Brian May Perform With Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga Brian May MTV Video Music Awards 2011

The 2011 MTV Video Music Awards was broadcast live tonight, with Lady Gaga opening the show with a live performance of her song “You and I,” which had the singer dressed in her male 1950s greaser alter ego doing a lengthy opening monologue before breaking into the song.

While Lady Gaga’s music isn’t exactly my thing, I can’t deny she’s an excellent performer, always keeping it interesting. As I watched her do her song in her “Jo Calderone” persona, I was ultra-psyched when midway through the act she introduced Queen’s Brian May to the stage for a lead guitar solo.

Check out the 8-minute video here below, which contains the entire Jo Calderone monologue, as well as the full song with Brian May from the VMAs.
