Mystic Dan’s predictions are back for the new season, and are as ever over on the HOP blog. We’ve also got a juicy video of Marcos Angeleri for the ladies, and a video to my best friend’s latest YouTube uploads. Nick Ball is the composer of the HOP theme tune as well as a professional musician, composer and producer, and has recently put up a few videos demonstrating techniques from 1910s and ’20s ragtime drumming.
