Video: Evolution of Music

The talented guys over a Pentatonix bring you this outstanding look at the evolution of music starting at the 11th Century to present day. Brilliantly put together, this is a real joy to listen to and I found it fascinating to watch. I’m a bit of a sucker for a little beat box. The inclusion of a little Bohemian Rhapsody brought the biggest smile to my face and I’d have liked to here a little more rock, oh and there is never a need for Dustbin Beaver, ever. Watch, but more importantly let your ears enjoy the pleasingly melodic vocal talents of Pentatonix.

I tabletop RPG as well as a little gaming, design the odd t-shirt now and again, update my Geek Parenting Tumblr and when I have cash to spend (which is rare) I scour the internet for Wonder Woman collectables. Also Doctor Who and Firefly rock!!
