…it isnt too far from the truth, actually. the effigy of the president stealing is just as good as the real thing.

Austrian authorities are searching for a bank robber who uses an unusual disguise: He wears a Barack Obama mask during his holdups.

its truly a sad day in the world when facebook takes priority over brushing your teeth or washing your face or, (gasp!) bathing. there’s a fuckin problem when the website trafficked most by your computer is a complete waste of time. seriously… everyone else and what theyre doing and thinking isnt as important. stop refreshing your news wall and go do something. look at porn. buy something on ebay. jesus christ.

goddamn you, mark zuckerberg.

NAMM 2011

well, every other blog out there is already covering all the new DJ stuff at NAMM this year, so im just going to comment on the two new products that stood out the most for me…

1. numark NS6.

its smaller than my NS7 and has the ability to control 4 decks. its great, but i think it wont sell as well because of the “feel” of the platters. i was never really big on tactility when dj-ing until i actually used a DVS (a la serato scratch live)… now, i dont want to use a controller that doesnt have motorized platters. i learned on a controller that wasnt motorized and i always thought it felt artificial.. then came the NS7 and V7 controllers from numark and it was game over. again, im not sure if the NS6 is going to sell as well to the older skool crowd, but its still a great product.

2. serato scratch live with SL4 interface

finally! a way for djs to transition by switching laptops alone… kudos to Rane and Serato. if i was using tech12s id definitely use this when i gig with my cousin. this, and a Rane 68. then again, id be broke.

HERE‘s some other stuff that would be of interest

got trucks?

ha! like i have money for a new car. anyhow… i havent been posting regularly ‘cos of these things. ive been either working on them, running them, or furiously searching the internet or hobby shops looking for hop-up parts or anything that would replace some of the crappy stock parts. needless to say, that takes up a lot of time like it did before years ago when i first got into the hobby. ive been working a lot of OT and weekends, and this has been a great way for me to relax and get my mind de-stressed.

so, here’s the breakdown… the larger of the 2 is the new HPI Savage Flux 2350 electric brushless monster truck… and a monster it is. a 1/8th scale brushless powered r/c vehicle is no joke. especially when it cant stop on wet grass and manages to smash into the back of my foot, tripping me and making me land on my ass. no joke. at all. it’s already modified, as all my vehicles are, regardless of scale.

the smaller one is the 1/16th scale Traxxas Summit VXL brushless truck… not quite as powerful as the Savage, but fast and fun, nonetheless. it too, is modified.

my dog is scared of both of them… i speculate that he thinks theyre haunted or some shit. he especially hates when unmounted tires roll by themselves.

and here they are… (and their promo videos from youtube)

i knew it. it was inevitable. ATT couldnt last this long without complaint. and its about time this device got activated on a network that’s better than ATT’s horseshit 3G. anyhow, if you havent already noticed, verizon got the iphone… and it’s for sale in february. amazingly enough, within hours, the haters have already started hating…

now yes, it’s not going to be a 4G device. who cares? its on verizon, its a CDMA phone, and youre likely to have a better experience with it because the network will be able to support it better. dont get me wrong, i know VZW has its quirks, but lets face it – can you do any worse than ATT?
