Today’s distraction: Google’s Doodle featuring a playable Moog
As if the Internet doesn’t provide enough distractions already (we’re looking at you, LOLCats), Google is featuring a doodle celebrating Robert Moog’s 78th birthday. His Moog synthesizer changed the way we hear music and brought electronic music to the masses, as Charles Carlini, a New York concert promoter, told the Associated Press.
So of course we had to make a song (not a very good one). We have a feeling you could do better. Send us a link to yours.
Not sure how to use the Doodle? Check out this video tutorial courtesy of the Goog.

Google is doing something fun today in honor of Les Paul, the guitar inventor and musician, who would have turned 96 today (he died two years ago).
On Google.com, you can play and record your own song on a virtual guitar.
Here’s your chance at stardom. Record a song, and then add the  finished link to a tweet with the hashtag #ATXGoogle. The tweets will be  displayed on Austin360.com.
We’ll pick our three favorites at 3 p.m. today, and each will receive  family four packs of tickets to the June 28 Round Rock Express game.  Those chosen will have to pick up the tickets at our office at 305 S. Congress Avenue.
Your tweets will show up here
