I got a bit DIY this morning and made my own photography light box. I’m planning on trying to upload (and hopefully sell) some photos on istock soon, and needed a pure white background. I got the instructions from the excellent lighting blog, Strobist. So easy. Cost me $4.50. A box. Some Tissue paper. White card. Stanley knife. Tape. The Construction I then just placed it on a table,...

Nevereverland is back in Australia in December this year to celebrate Modulars 10th birthday. No word on a lineup yet, but they have released a teaser video with some footage from last years festival (which was basically Daft Punk, preceded by a few hours of other artists I really liked, but hardly paid any attention to, as I couldn’t think of anything else but Daft Punk.) It’s pretty much...

I’m doing some more work on my Mashup music this afternoon… my second complete track, Clunk Click, is almost done! I’m learning a lot as I go, and think my next track will be even better again. You can listen to my first track, Hump Drunk in Lexington, on my imeem page.

I love it… the best thing he has done since...

How Andrew got his Femoral Groove back →
I have this. I’m going to try and fix it.
Native Korean Rock & The Fishnets
(Image source: FrictionNYC via Flickr) Karen O is fronting a new band, Native Korean Rock & The Fishnets. The sound is very different to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, but Karen O’s distinctive voice still sounds great over this new ensemble of bizzare backing instrumental. A lot of it has an 60’s AM-esque feel… with extra radio hollowness thrown in for good measure. They had...
Ugandan Kids Cover Bjork
Bitone, a childrens home in Uganda have recorded an amazing album using nothing more than a laptop and a microphone. The whole album is available for purchase in mp3 format, or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org for a hand packaged CD.
