Xraydio 2 Disc Table 
Diesel for Moroso
This coffee table is almost as cute as my boombox throw pillow… It’s made by printing the X-ray of a dj console on glass. The glass is still transparent, which adds dimension. I’m thinking it’ll look fresh in my record room.
The little guy pictured above is a Linos Portable USB vinyl record player (never would have guessed it). How does it work, you ask?
Hook the wire into your computer. The bar has two parts. Take out the bottom base, place the long play album or single on top, and then sandwich it with the overarching top. To start playing, move the player arm into position. Bananas, right? Pop it in your pocket and you’re good to go (so long as you have a computer or something that accepts a USB cord handy).
Probably not the best option for that $200 impossibly rare mint copy, but cool beans for that $1.99 joint. Definitely a fun choice for a beginning collector.
thanks to Gizmodo for the info.
The news of my day is that Maxwell’s LONG-awaited new single, “Pretty Wings” has been officially linked (broadcast Wednesday morning on The Tom Joyner Morning Show). Of course, the show doesn’t broadcast here in Chicago (the #3 market in the country) anymore. So this is a Public Service, courtesy of Darkjive, with love.
Maxwell has stated via his MySpace that “the first album, Black, slated for release on July 7th will drop first, followed by Summers’ in 2010 and then Night (the sixth studio record) comes out in 2011″. I suppose that he wanted to make it worth the wait….
So, Van Hunt’s folks have graciously passed me this note with the following EXCELLENT news…“I’m thankful for your patience during the wait for new music. I’ve been working on a brand new collection. It’s close, but not quite ready. In the meantime, I’m offering a salve, a few rare items from the vault. I picked them out myself and named them ‘Use In Case of Emergency.’ It will be available May 8th, only at http://www.vanhunt.com.”— Van Hunt
I’m digging the gloss and grime of the preview (including some alternate takes of some of the best he’s ever offered us). And, I’m compelled to share a taste with you, Darkjivers… Jive on!
