The Database Design Watercooler

This is the Database Design Watercooler : A break from your daily work.

I have created this page in order to give you a chance to relax for a few minutes:

I will be adding much more off-topic stuff as time passes, but for now, enjoy some very good music (some of my favorites)...

So go and get yourself a glass of cold water, a cup of coffee/tea, or perhaps a beer (It's soo much more than just a breakfast drink...), and enjoy a few minutes of relaxation and good music, before you continue to explore this Database Design expert site.

Pink Floyd performed their last world tour in 1994, and all video clips below are from that last tour. As you can see, I am a big fan of Pink Floyd (been attending two concerts), however, there's more further dowm this page.

Just make sure your boss is nowhere near you before you turn up the volume... ;-)

Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb

It was recently voted "World's best guitar solo ever" (I was at that concert):

Pink Floyd: Shine on you crazy diamond

This is meant as a tribute to Syd Barrett, one of the founders of Pink Floyd, who unfortunately got high on LSD and never landed again... (he died at the age of 60 in 2006 from diabetes) Anyway, he unexpectedly showed up in the studio while they were recording his tribute song: What a coincidence!

Pink Floyd: Learning to fly

Pink Floyd: High Hopes

Pink Floyd: Time

Pink Floyd: Wish you were here

Pink Floyd live at Pompeii 1972

I brought my son with me for the 1994 Pink Floyd Tour concert. In 1995, we visited Pompeii, Italy. When he learnt that Pink Floyd had played at the ancient stadium there, he was extatic.

Italian culture workers and administrators, on the other hand, were hysteric when they were told after it had happened: They are still scratching their heads as to how Pink Floyd was allowed to turn up the volume (very high!) in such a sacret place for Italians :-)

It is great fun to see the (very) young version of the band members.. I must say that their musical skills have also improved over the years...

Stevie Ray Vaughan:

Probably the best blues artist of all: A shame that he's dead, but here he is truly alive and kickin':

Crossfire

From a TV show in 1989 (not with his regular band Double Trouble), just hours before he was killed in a helicopter chrash: Eric Clapton was in the same chopper, but survived...

Little Wing: Interpretation of a Jimi Hendrix original

Texas Flood

Stevie Ray Vaughan: Superstition

Also Vidar Busk, a Norwegian blues guitarist: I have the same kind of guitar (Fender Stratocaster, and I love to play blues) as all of these guys, but unfortunately for me, the similarities end there... Enjoy!

Globalization and the Information Age

Do spend 7 minutes watching this: It is a video about East/West comparisons as well as the future in information technology. It was made by Karl Fisch, a highschool teacher in USA. It's pretty thought-provoking...

PS: Don't forget to turn up the volume on your PC:
