The last 10 years have seen a major development in the audio technology scene with software such as logic, pro tools, and cubase changing the way music is made in any genre. The software which stands out among them all has to be the innovative Ableton Live, allowing you to stretch and mashup loops and samples in a very creative way. Ableton have just announced a partnership with Serato (the leader in software scratch software) which will see a nice integration between the 2 software companies. Ableton is already a firm favorite among the electronic DJs (myself included) but now with a link with serato, the DJ door is firmly open to whole new level of creativity.

Everyone knows about beatboxing these days, the art of making beats, sounds, music with a mic and your mouth. Legends like Rahzel, Bizmarkie, Faith SFX and even Jacko have been known to bust a few beats. Someone you may not have heard about is UK based Shlomo. Being featured on Jooles Hollands show on the BBC, and a number of other shows and festivals, Shlomo is pushing the envelope that bit further. He is playing in covent garden tonight with his vocal orchestra (check the video above to get an idea of what you might see).

Canon have announced their new SLR camera, the Canon EOS 5D MkII. I have an interest in photography, but have never really been interested in camera, but this camera is something else. The only way to explain it is to watch this clip by Vincent Laforet who managed to get his hands on the new canon and shot this in a weekend to show of its amazing ability in low light conditions. I want one of these cameras!

Crazy New Film Coming To Our Theater Screens In March 09!
Watchmen is set in an alternate 1985 America in which costumed superheroes are part of the fabric of everyday society, and the "Doomsday Clock" - which charts the USA's tension with the Soviet Union - is permanently set at five minutes to midnight. When one of his former colleagues is murdered, the washed-up but no less determined masked vigilante Rorschach sets out to uncover a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes. As he reconnects with his former crime-fighting legion - a ragtag group of retired superheroes, only one of whom has true powers - Rorschach glimpses a wide-ranging and disturbing conspiracy with links to their shared past and catastrophic consequences for the future. Their mission is to watch over humanity...but who is watching the watchmen?

The Nike Dunk Hi Supreme - Pre Book is out in time for Christmas. A few days ago I put up the new dunk for girls and now the boys have their equivalent. First released in 1985 and used to spearhead the 'College Colours' program which would ensure that a signed college basketball team would have special edition Dunk highs and later in 1986 the Dunk low to match the uniform colours.
