XLR8R's City Guide now has Miami.
DJ/Producer Mr. Oizo has released a teaser for his upcoming film Rubber that features music by himself and Gaspard Auge (of Justice). At only about 30 seconds long, it is just that, a teaser. But it is more than enough to spark some interest. I am very curious to see more.
Here is a pretty well designed info-graphic (from Information Is Beautiful) about the amount of online sales a solo musician must sell in order to make a US monthly minimum wage of $1,160. It’s a bit sobering to see how little they payout is for some of these services we are buying from. I mean, $0.0017 per stream… more
XLR8R has written a wrap-up on Coachella this year. Their take on the festival is a bit jaded and cynical as they tend to be sometimes, but their view on what they call “Dubstep Crusties” is pretty hilarious.
Here is a dose of tech-nerd-gadgetry for you. The Splitterbot is a little robot keychain that allows you to pop off his head, plug it into your headphone jack and share audio with another listener. Pretty handy and it’s only eight bucks.

Names such as Boys Noize, Toxic Avenger, Wolfgang Gartner, Fake Blood and Designer Drugs… more
It’s always good to see smaller independent companies joining forces, supporting each other and making money doing it. A few years ago I helped my friends over at Zuriick set up a store with Big Cartel, and since they have completely blown up. Not saying Big Cartel is solely responsible for that, but they provided a very good… more
More often than not the best ideas are those that seem to be obvious after someone makes them a reality. The series of portraits done by Erika Iris Simmons called Ghost in the Machine is a good example of that. Creating portraits of various artists and actors using the original cassette tapes of VHS tapes.
A good friend of mine, Michael Paul Stephenson, has been working on a documentary for several years now called Best Worst Movie. In a nutshell the film is about a movie called Troll 2, which is indisputably the “worst movie ever made”. I have been really impressed watching how well the documentary has done on the festival circuit and… more
I have posted many times before about Incase. I have also owned many of their products and have alway been very happy with the quality.
