Cosmologists have begun to think seriously about processes that occurred before the Big Bang. Alan Coley from Canada’s Dalhousie University and Bernard Carr from Queen Mary University in London, have theorized that some so-called primordial black holes might have been created in the Big Crunch that came before the Big Bang, which supports the theory that the Big Bang was not a single event, but one that occurs over and over again as the Universe crunches down to a single point, then blows up again.

20 track album
"These twenty songs were selected from a ten-year period (2004-2014), with a focus on material that stays true to the Hussalonia founder’s vision for the future of Hussalonia. The opening track, “The Hussalonia Anthem,” was written expressly for this compilation and appears on no other release. Each song has been remastered from the original mixes, with several songs remixed for improved fidelity. If you are new to Hussalonia, this is an ideal place to start. If you are already Hussalonia fan, this is a great collection of the founder’s favorite compositions, all newly remastered. Definitely worth the price of admission."
Here’s my personalized thank you track, sent to me from pop music cult Hussalonia for buying his new compilation album, Pop Does Not Mean Popular: A Polite Introduction to Hussalonia (2004-2014). If you purchase the album before August 1, 2014, he will send you a personalized track with your name in the song.

They Might Be Giants’ first album, or “pink album,” was a turning point for both the band and for the burgeoning world of indie rock. Performing in downtown NYC clubs, the band had become a fixture on the East Village scene where performance art and music flowed together in a vivid late night club scene. In those earlier years, the band was making recordings for their Dial-A-Song service and their demos were actively passed around town. While the album’s release in late 1986 was met with raves from critics (including the rare “A” rating from the Village Voice’s Robert Christgau), with no major label push or immediate radio interest, it seemed destined to settle comfortably into the Miscellaneous T section within a number of months. All that would change quickly when the band collaborated with video director Adam Bernstein on a series of original clips that would get serious play on MTV…
