Let us here at do you a favor: do not visit your metroplex Monday night (7/25) to see the animated film
The scene, despite the hype, is pretty soap-opera-on-a-weekday tame, except we’ve never seen the Caped Crusader in such a position. There’s been implied love or lust between the two characters onscreen before but the relationship has been more teacher-pupil, nee father-daughter than anything else, so to see the pair actually have, you know, feelings …

The One Smart Pianos on display at the 2016 NAMM Show.

Times, they are a’changing. Music education evolves right along with them. When we learned to play piano in an era long gone the best teachers granted lessons only to those of us fortunate enough to enjoy homes furnished with spendy upright acoustic pianos. Holy grail grand pianos were so out of reach for the average working parent they barely merit mention. The evolution of keyboards and synthesizers in the MTV ’80s heralded a slew of affordable consumer …

The 70s were a groovy time.
This year Moog’s 2016 NAMM booth took us back to its seminal 1971 Moog Island of Electronicus, in tribute to the company’s first successful immersive marketing event/experience of the same name and vibe. The original Moog Island of Electronicus event was held on an island off the coast of Florida and was a success.

[ 30 Jan 2016 | Comments Off on NAMM 2016: Strumstick design ensures no wrong notes ]

Sometimes progress is achieved through reverse engineering, by the stripping down of the burliest thing to its leanest bones. The good folks at McNally Instruments’ Strumstick have done just that with their innovative, three-stringed instrument of the same name. Strumstick ensures that, fumble as you may across its fretboard, you simply cannot produce a wrong note. Daunted by the challenge of learning to play a traditional guitar? Wish there was an easy way to make cool-sounding music even if you …

It’s been five years since we’ve heard any new music from Janet Jackson and seven years since she’s released a new album.
That all changed in the past few weeks, as Janet has been cryptically hinting on Twitter that when she’s ready to drop new material to not believe any rumors and that you would hear it from her lips.

If there is a new project, you'll hear it from my lips.

Audi has been at the top of its game for the past decade, offering some of the finest automobiles on the planet. The company’s interiors are nearly unmatched and the exterior styling always turns heads.
Audi’s dip into the crossover and SUV pool has been as spectacular, so much so it’s now offering a smaller version of the successful Q5, the Q3. It is certainly handsome and well crafted but some may find it a bit …
