Bankai, a Creative Common artist.


   Bankai est un projet de musique électro (entre autres) qui se définit lui-même comme étant du style "nerdcore" (écoutez la chanson "Strut", y'a un sample de l'amiral Ackbar qui gueule "It's a trap !"). Toutes les chansons de Bankai sont sous licence Creative Commons et peuvent être téléchargées, remixées et diffusées LEGALEMENT et GRATUITEMENT depuis le site

 Leurs chansons sont compilées en 2 EPs et une compilation de remixes :
  Je vous recommande particulièrement "The Epic part III", "Faun" et "Strut".
  Bankai est l'artiste électro le plus cool et le plus innovant que j'ai écouté depuis la fin de la French Touch. Ecoutez, profitez, attention c'est addictif.


   Bankai is an Australian electronic music project, in the nerdcore style (listen to there's a sample of Admiral Ackbar's voice yelling "It's a trap !" ). All Bankai songs are licenced under Creative Commons and can be LEGALLY downloaded for FREE on the website The licence allows to remix all Bankai songs at your free will.

  The songs are published in 2 EPs and a remixes compilation :

   I recommend you to listen to "The Epic part III", "Faun" and "Strut".

   Bankai is the fresher and coolest electro artist I've listened since the end of the French Touch period. Listen, enjoy, but beware it's addictive.

8th of September 2010 : gray Google Doodle and keystroke10-hp.png

Today, Google's logo is gray. But if you try to type something like "Google" for example, it will turn colored. The name of the picture file used is keystroke10-hp.png. Yesterday, it was a bubble-animated logo.

Both Today and Yesterday's logos are HTML5 and Javascript based only. Google is probably planning to announce a great innovation in its search engine today. And I think it will be the Result Streaming.

Result Streaming allows you to see the results of your search before you are done typing it !
You can test it on a third-party website called .

More info to come today, as Google has planned a big announcement!
