Pale Penguin has been a mainstay in the electronic music scene in Thessaloniki, Greece for nearly two decades, making him a force to be reckoned with when it comes to breaks, electronica, techno and techno-house. If you have not made it over to see him as the resident DJ at the Elvis Bar in Thessaloniki, or had the honor of hearing one of his sets opening for major acts, entertaining film festival attendees, filling up clubs across Europe or battling it out at the Battle of the Year/Balkans, maybe you have caught him as the main music contributor for Freeze, Soundmaker or Crawford Magazine.
His influence on the electronica scene doesn’t stop there; he is also a co-founder and co-manager of V.I.M. (Very Important Music) Records and has teamed up with Kid Stretch to deliver to the world the funky, disco-breaks project Pale the Kid.
Listen DJ Miss Kittin:
You cannot seriously discuss electronic music without including Miss Kittin in the conversation. The French artist has carved out worldwide fame while creating success for herself as an electronic music DJ, vocalist, and songwriter.
Miss Kittin first came on the scene with her hit singles “1982″ and “Frank Sinatra” more than a decade ago. Both songs were performed in collaboration with the Hacker, a prominent French techno producer who has since worked with Miss Kittin on various other singles and albums since that time.
More acclaim came for Miss Kittin as she produced and released a pair of singles, “Rippin Kittin” and “Silver Screen Shower Scene” that proved popular with international audiences. She released successful debut solo albums “I Com” in 2004 and BatBox in 2008.
One of the most well known songs around the world was born in the 1970s, but has had a rebirth decades later. Bohemian Rhapsody, by the band, Queen, was featured in films as well as other venues. It remains the quintessential rock ballad. A new use for yesterday’s classic computer components gives new life to the song. Periodically sounding much like something from the electronic music genius, Isao Tomita, this reworked method of portraying the song is simple in sound yet complex in nature- and without a keyboard.
HOUSTON, TX- Reports continue to file in that NASA has received the first ever recorded message from beings on another planet. Though mum on the details, officials did confirm that a communication was received to the Houston office shortly after 4am CST on December 1st 2054.
“We did receive a transmission,” one official speaking on the condition of anonymity commented. “As of right now, it’s not clear what it is.”
Debate continues to rage in the scientific community over the source and origin of this mysterious audio recording. Earlier today, a two-minute clip of what is reported to be a 15-minute transmission of some kind was released to the media, who began playing it over the airwaves.
After years of often contentious negotiations and debate, the Earth was finally accepted as a full member of the galactic Milky Way Alliance yesterday. During a ceremony at the headquarters of the United Republics, successor to the United Nations after its dissolution 2691, to mark the occasion, Secretary General Robert Obtunga declared the day a milestone in the history of the human race and an essential step to integrate the planet with rest of the universe.
When Neil Armstrong made his first appearance on the moon in 1969, no one ever thought that we would be standing here 100 years later, watching as a space shuttle gets ready to lift off for another endeavor to the moon. The year 2069 will see one of the first space shuttle launches in years that will carry people to the moon, and hopefully, back again. We will watch and wait as the people in the space craft go up to the moon, walk around, and attempt to come back home. But what are they going to the moon for? The answer to this question is simple.
As the Earth’s surface has deteriorated to the point that no one can really live on it anymore, we have had to look at other sources of life so we can sustain our water and soil. The one place we have found that may have water is the moon. There are five astronauts who have decided to go to the moon and walk around the surface to try to find water on the moon’s surface. If they discover the moon has water, then they will begin sending other shuttles up to the moon in the months to come. Some of the water on the moon has proved to be usable as there have been insects discovered living in the water in some of the craters on the moon.

Pasadena, California – An unusual object imaged by NASA’s New Horizons probe shortly after passing the Pluto-Charon system this summer may be a hole in the fabric of space and time, according to a team of astrophysicists at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech).
After carefully analyzing data and imagery gathered by the probe during its July flyby of the dwarf planet and its moons, the Caltech team concluded that the most likely explanation for the anomalous object was that it was a so-called wormhole in space-time. A wormhole, according to theoretical physics, is a multi-dimensional tunnel connecting two distant points in space and time.
