I've mentioned it before, but if you haven't seen the short film Sintel, you might want to go check it out. It was made using the open source animation program Blender, and revolves around a girl and her pet dragon. It's licensed under an Attribution license and is available to watch online or download in a variety of formats and sizes all the way up to a 4K format packaged for playing in theaters. Check it out today at sintel.org

Today's app-of-the-day is MuseScore, a music notation and scoring program that makes it very easy to typeset sheet music. You pretty much just click the staves to add notes to them in whatever lengths you want and it takes care of drawing all the stems and such and generally expressing the music you draw in using normal music notation rules. It's really cool and, due to the number of automatic organization and cleanup features, makes it quite easy to typeset sheet music. Even if you don't know much about musical theory, I'm confident you could still compose playable songs with relative ease with it. It's available for Linux, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows. Download it today at musescore.org

So, that's all for today. Remember - piracy of commercial music only proves your dependence on that model and justifies further censorship and restriction. So don't pirate it - replace it with something better. Listen to open licensed music, donate to the artists behind it, go to concerts, and buy music from artists whose record labels don't see you as their enemies. Support artists where your support actually counts.
