Tiny Wings - iPhone game

I wasn't sure when it would happen, or what game would come out that would displace Angry Birds on the iTunes App Store. But I think I just played the game that will do it. It's called "Tiny Wings" and it's $0.99. You must get it, and you can do that here:

Get Tiny Wings

It came out 5 days ago, and now it's the top 3rd selling app!! Wow!

Enjoy!

Radiohead - King of Limbs

After a couple of listens, it's an interesting production as always, but it feels more like a Thom York solo album. That's not necessarily bad, but I don't feel the need to see these songs performed live. There's not enough identifiable contribution from the band in my opinion. I can't help but wish they rocked it a little (a lot) more...

Dick Blick for your art materials!

I am a stickler for good customer service. When I make binaural ears for people, I generally always get my silicone from www.dickblick.com.

Yesterday I went to make another set of Silicone Binaural Ears and found that one of the batches of silicone I received was old or had somehow "soured". It was useless to me, since it wouldn't even pour into the mold. I simply complained to Dick Blick and they are happily replacing the batch for me for free!

Like I said, I love good customer service, and I think it deserves more recognition. So here's a shout out to all artists who need art supplies on-line, go to www.dickblick.com!!

Ears, ready to ship!

Thanks Berto!

New Radiohead Album!!!

Radiohead fans have something to be stoked about this weekend. Their new album "The King of Limbs" is releasing on Saturday!! Woohoo!! It's been way too long since "In Rainbows".

I'm curious why they didn't go with the same marketing model as In Rainbows though. If you guys will remember, it was a donation style/free music model where you paid whatever you wanted for the album. I understood that it worked very well for them $$ wise. Oh well, I'm glad to pay full price for any Radiohead production.

Here's a link where you can order the download: http://www.thekingoflimbs.com/

I've got to get Thom York into binaural audio. Anyone have his email address?

Ears n' Beers

From left to right (and a little down to up to down)... Silicone, releasing some bubbles; a black IPA all grain beer I made from a Baders extract recipe (very tasty), also releasing bubbles; and some ears being made for a customer.

Binaural ears being made

This time heading to Berto in Florida! Thanks Berto!
