hot love on the hot love highway: timbaland’s bus

goddamn! i said GODDAMN!!! SSL shows us how the big dogs roll (literally). if the price of gas wasn’t so fucking high, i’d be ready to move in right now! note to timbaland: a tv in the john is pimpin’ and all, but if you in there that long, my man, one word: fiber.

i fucking love robots: threeA toys

perhaps due to a severe overindulgence of star wars, battlestar galactica and the mostly cheezed out black hole as a wee young lad but goddamit, these toys are way too cool: i love how the medical bot has a gun, too. he he, protecting the hippocratic oath no doubt. and my all time fav: threea […]

gotta love this: crunchtime studio tour

maybe it’s just me (it’s not) but i get weirded out in studios that are ultra-clean. it reminds me of people that have all white furniture in their house. ie. nothing fun ever happens here cuz you’re always worried about messing something up.  sphincters are very seriously clenched. now, i’m not advocating slovenliness, just a […]

treats for your feets: logidy umi3 usb midi foot controller

this sweet little logidy umi3 number is the perfect plug ‘n’ play solution for controlling ableton live 8’s wicked looper. but, of course, that’s not all it can be used for, because it’s fully midi class compliant and has no drivers to install. basically, any on/off type function you can midi map, ie. you can […]

shim recommends: 2010 macbook pro

when people ask me what kind of computer they should get, i pretty much always tell them to buy apple. especially if you are the creative type, macs will serve up a much more stimulating creative experience. it’s not that i’m a mac fanboy, per se, but i have used both platforms extensively and i […]

condenser mics for mortals: shure ksm9 and rode m3

i really hate it when non-cash impaired folk give you that “it takes money to make money!” speech. when what they’re really saying is “our exclusive little club isn’t taking any new members (certainly not from you, punk) at this time.” of course, dropping 5K on a condenser will get you closer to that oh-so-coveted […]
