This is a video done in support of DJ Vinroc’s album. It gives an insight into just how a beat is made on an mpc 2500 and a turntable. Oh yeah give it a minute it is an “artsy” video.
Hehehe….I thought this was pretty funny…so here you go.
I will tell you what Ken Block, half owner of DC SHOE CO does:
gym_kha_na – pronounced jim-kah-nuh
Now I’m sure, as I was, you have a very confused look on your face. What the hell is GYMKHANA? well it is as follows:
Gymkhana is about “control”. Gymkhana is primarily done on an open paved field or parking lot. The course is laid out with cones in key points to navigate to. The obstacle will often consist of slaloms, 180 degree turns, 360 degree turns, figure 8s, and some time parking boxes. The drivers goals is the get through the course as fast a possible with the least amount of mistakes. Gymkhana requires strong mental concentration and memorizing of the track, where you have to go and do next. The driver will use many techniques to effectively go through a course. Acceleration, braking, drifting & grip driving are all necessary for Gymkhana.
So it looks to me like Ken Block takes his free time and money and run’s around doing this. MUST BE NICE.
GO KEN GO…..
Wow, this is ridiculous…as stated twice in the title of this post. Here’s another retardedly expensive thing for people with too much money and an obsession on spending it in ridiculous ways. Hehehe…there goes that word again. Read this:
It’s called the Gabriel Turntable, and you won’t find it at Wal-Mart. Crafted in limited editions by an Italian company that will engrave each buyer’s name on it, the Gabriel is to a Kenner Close ‘N Play what a Ferrari is to a Yugo.
“When I look at it,” said Placido Pappalardo, co-owner of maker Angelis Labor, “the only word that comes to mind is love.”
Angelis Labor executives proudly unveiled their turntable last week at the International Consumer Electronics Show, where its retro appearance and mechanical design set it apart from the cacophony of digital gadgets on display. That, and the price: up to $64,000, depending on which model is ordered.
The Gabriel is made from aluminum, bronze and stainless steel and can be customized with up to four arms. Each arm is made in a Modena, Italy, factory that also builds Ferrari parts. A one-armed model costs about $27,000, while a four-armed version runs for $64,000, including installation.
“It is a thing of beauty,” said Jonathan Valin, executive editor of The Absolute Sound magazine, who saw the turntable in Las Vegas but didn’t get to hear it. “Whether it is a world-class turntable, I don’t know.”
Why would anyone want four arms on their record player? Read more
First off, I like the color. I poured this into a pint glass and my first reaction was, “nice color.” While I’m at it, it smells nice too. Having lived in Chico for so long, I kind of expect good things from that brewery…since everything they make seems to be just that; good. And yes, what do you know?…the first and seconds sips concure, this is good. Weighing in at 6.7% Alcohol, it’s got a solid flavor that isn’t overpowering and a gentle aftertaste that is a bit dry. I like this much better than their ‘standard’ Pale Ale, but I’m not sure if that kinda has to do with the fact that I’ve drank about a billion of those and this is my first Harvest Ale. Which, actually, is pretty surprising since I lived so close to the brewery. I thought that I had tried all their releases, but according to the Sierra Nevada website, this was first brewed in 1996. It goes down very smooth and I’m going to try and remember to look for the next edition of this when it’s brewed next. These were bottled pretty recently and should be in any of your local beer spots that provide exceptional beers. So, probably not gonna be at your local super market, unless it’s a very cool super market. This is another brew that you will want to add to your conquests…No comments
Well here we are again, day 2. I have to admit this blogging thing can be addictive. All day at work I thought about what I wanted to post and the information I wanted to share to the world. I’m glad I got my first post out of the way. To some you might be confused on it. But for others that know me it is just another day in the life of.
So about this video. These guys, “C2C”, are a group of turntablists from France that are being mentioned in the same sentence as the great Skratch Picklz, Dj Craze, and A-Trak. They came into the DMC world and made a clean sweep for 4 straight years. (03-06) Now for most of yall your like me and you watch DMC video’s and it all kinda sounds the same. But these guys took it to a level where they all play an instrument with their respective tables. You can search them out on youtube to find the other years they won, but this hands down is my favorite. ENJOY…..
