See the Rolling Stones’ Trippy ‘2000 Light Years From Home’ Lyric Video

The Rolling Stones unveiled a mind-bending new lyric video for “2000 Light Years From Home” in anticipation of the upcoming 50th anniversary reissue of Their Satanic Majesties Request. The new box set arrives September 22nd via ABKCO Records.

The Lucy Dawkins and Tom Readdy-directed clip begins with a slow zoom into the wide-open third eye of a yogi, which serves as a portal to a new dimension. Using collage-style animation, the clip moves through a constantly changing psychedelic universe where the lyrics from “2000 Light Years From Home” mingle with cut-outs of astronauts, ancient explorers, demons, flowers, monks, city skylines, can-can dancers and swimmers.

The 50th anniversary edition of Their Satanic Majesties Request is available to pre-order. The expansive set celebrates one of the Rolling Stones’ most divisive albums as it found the group forgoing their blistering rhythm and blues sound for pop psychedelia. The new set includes stereo and mono versions of the album on vinyl and hybrid super audio CD, as well as a 20-page book featuring new liner notes from Rob Bowman and photos from the original cover shoot.

The Rolling Stones released their most recent album, Blue and Lonesome, in 2016. In July, Mick Jagger shared two new solo tracks, “England Lost” and “Get a Grip.”

The 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 is widely regarded as the holy grail when it comes to 911s. At the time, 500 units were made, each with a price tag of over $10,000 USD, leaving the company wondering if they could in fact sell them all. On the contrary, however, the model sold out in less than a week, following an appearance at the Paris Motor Show. Porsche then went on to build 1,590 examples during the production run.

The Carrera RS was ultimately optioned in two packages: Touring and Sport Lightweight, with the latter being a stripped-down racing variant, designed to barely be street legal.

Above we in turn get a look at one of just 17 original 911 Carrera RS 2.7 Lightweights with right hand drive configuration sold in England. This particular ride won the Circuit of Ireland, Donegal International and Castrol Manx International Rallies in 1974.

In total, the 911 participated in 40 rallies, while being famously photographed at the Donegal International Rally in June of 1974, being launched into the air by Irish driver Cathal Curley.

Now, the heralded Porsche is due to be auctioned off by RM Sotheby’s on September 6 for an estimated $1,066,036 USD to $1,292,165 USD. For more, follow here.

Recently, the Subaru WRX from Baby Driver sold for $69,100 USD, more than twice the price of a brand new model.

Australian scientists dispute Darwin’s theory about whale’s teeth

Finding debunks long-held idea that teeth of prehistoric animals were shaped to allow water to sieve through them

Australian researchers have produced new evidence disputing a popular theory of whale evolution proffered by scientists from Charles Darwin onwards about the development of baleen, the hair-like strands used to filter krill out of the water and down the gullet of the largest mammals on the planet.

Using 3D modelling of a prehistoric tooth dug out of the rocks near Torquay on Victoria’s southern coastline in 2016 and comparing it to similar modelling of modern predators, a team of scientists based at Museums Victoria found that rather than being shaped as a precursor to filter-feeding, the teeth of ancestral whales were surprisingly sharp.
