Toccata and Fugue

Hey El Moochadors, while I’m waiting for my dinner to stop screaming cook up I thought I would do a quick post. Seems like there’s a ton of great geeky stuff buzzing around the web right now, and I wish I could post all that I find. Unfortunately I haven’t had much time for anything these past couple weeks except for a few quick posts on here. I’m hoping as soon as things settle down a bit that I can get back on track with what I want to do for this site, and continue to press forward.

Anyhow, here’s something really cool I saw on BoingBoing.net earlier. This YouTube user, FunToTheHead, got some old floppy drives to play Bach’s classic piece, Toccata and Fugue. I don’t know much about classical music, but this piece does stand out to me. See, in my early twenties I volunteered two years of my life to pedal religion in Sacramento. That meant my musical choices were limited to classical or anything by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir (MoTab as we called it). I usually chose classical, except I only had one tape, and it was of Bach’s stuff. Toccata and Fugue was on there, and it became my favorite piece to listen to. I still like it, but now I like it because I don’t have to listen to it over and over and over and over… Enjoy.

I looked this up on YouTube so you can hear a “normal” version of it. Enjoy!
