Vu Tung Lam, a mechanic from the tiny village of Lang Son recently introduced himself to the world by building working prototype of the Batpod, Batman’s motorbike from The Dark Knight trilogy! See my extended video of it below and read more about this cool machine made from an old $125 Suzuki motorcycle!

Guitar and Ukulele Tabs for Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen)

Hallelujah is one of the truly great Canadian songs of all time, written by one of Canada’s best songwriters ever, Leonard Cohen. It is generally simple to play in terms of chords, and simple to hard to perform pending how much diva you want to put into your performance.

I’ve tabbed a version reasonably similar to the one sung by kd lang in the video below, though I’ve included the notes of the melody by which I sing it. Best version I could find out there, in my opinion.

Leonard Cohen

The nice thing about robust tunes such as this is that you can put all kinds of little variations in the phrasing and it wouldn’t matter much so long as you hit the right notes for the chord changes. So feel free to stray from my tabbed notes and just do it the way you feel it.

This is also a pretty long song so I’ve created several formats and sizes. Choose the one that works well for you.

If the letter size tabs (8.5″ x 11″) are too small for your eyes, you can either enlarge to tabloid size (11″ x 17″) using an automatic enlarge feature on many photocopiers, or download the tabloid sized versions for printing. The tabloid size tabs can be inserted into a typical letter sized binder on the 11″ size, and folded almost in half to fit. You just open each tab to use it.

Avatar Movie Wallpapers Collection 6 (1920 x 1080 pixels)

These wallpapers are 1920 x 1080 pixels in size for widescreen monitors.

For a movie that’s as  popular as Avatar, there aren’t that many great and large images to choose from to create wallpapers. I’ve collected what I could find and did a fair bit of touch up to them to create this collection and those of other monitor sizes listed below. Most of it was reducing noise because the pictures were terribly grainy, so it wasn’t like I altered the avatars or anything. I also took out a lot of advertisements that are annoying to look at and did not put any of my own.

Due to the lack of good images, I also added a few from the video game, which has some pretty good images of its own. Of course, they are video game quality, not movie quality, but as pictures, they were better quality than most of the movie pictures I found. Whichever you like, I hope you find something you like in the collection below.

My Avatar movie and video game wallpaper collections are also available for these other sizes:

  • 1024 x 768 pixels (also good for 800 x 600 and 640 x 480 monitors) — 61 wallpapers
  • 1280 x 960 pixels (also good for 1152 x 864 monitors) — 61 wallpapers
  • 1280 x 1024 pixels — coming
  • 1440 x 960 pixels — 61 wallpapers
  • 1600 x 1200 pixels — 60 wallpapers
  • 1920 x 1200 pixels (also good for 1680 x 1050, 1280 x 800 and 960 x 600 pixel monitors) — 54 wallpapers
  • 2560 pixels wide (includes 2560 x 1440, 2560 x 1600 and 2560 x 1920)— 75 wallpapers in total
