Skipping the Building Permit by Building 9 Square Meter Micro-Cabin

I could totally live there:

Designer Robin Falck obviously loves a challenge. He decided he wanted to build a cabin for his personal getaways, but wanted to do it alone. Then he decided to bypass the need for a building permit by building a cabin under 9 square meters. In just two weeks time Robin was able to build this incredible cabin, minus the door and window which had not arrived yet.

DJs and Mental Health: Electronic Music’s Last Taboo

One in four of us will struggle with mental health issues at some point in our life. It’s something however that a very small segment of the DJ community has spoken openly about. So how prevalent is it among the touring DJ scene, and why does it appear to be the last taboo to be broken?

How fast can you go with an 104-tooth chain-ring on a bicycle?

Cover Art Factory

Have Cover Art Factory design your, erm … cover art. Upload a pic and let them do the rest. In a nutshell.

What sounds like a cool thing might be one step more into the “automated art” direction, just like “automated audio mastering”. I’m very suspicious about all this, but in this case here I think it’s better to have it done nicely instead of all those cheesy, shit looking “artworks” I’m seeing every day. Not even mentioning the myriads of stolen photography.

Worth a try, me thinks. Well, not for me (or my label), but I guess for a lot of you folks this could come in handy.
