  • DARK SUN CREATOR TIMOTHY BROWN TO MAKE ITS SPIRITUAL SUCCESSOR WITH GAME BOOKS AND A PROGRESSIVE ROCK ALBUM Veteran game designer and musician Timothy Brown today announced that he intends to create a whole new role-playing game world titled Dragon Kings, the ‘spiritual successor’ to his popular design Dark Sun. This new world will be envisioned not only in fiction and art, but in music, as well. “Dark Sun was innovative because we created the game world and its art simultaneously,” says Brown. “We imagined concepts and asked Brom to draw them, and Brom painted those concepts that we later described in game terms. I’m so pleased that he is collaborating with us on my new Dragon Kings universe. His […]

  • Apple’s Airplay function for Macbook, iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV was a great step forward for those of us who want to stream our music to and from various locations in our home.  It was actually the deciding factor behind my family purchasing Airport (the Apple brand wireless internet router).  Unfortunately, after unboxing the Airport and getting things up and running I quickly found the functionality was not quite what I expected.  I was unable to stream audio from Pandora and other programs to the speakers attached to my Airport.  Only music from iTunes, or internet videos would play over Airplay.  This seemed strange to me as streaming audio from a video or audio source should be as simple as […]

    AirFoil: How to use Airplay from any device or program

  • When an unassuming cardboard box arrived at NERD TREK, LLC I figured it was just another company or publisher expecting a raving review of their sub-par product.  I know, a glass half-empty kind of mentality, but after you spend hours reviewing products you find that the majority of stuff is just OK. I was about to have my mind blown.  After unboxing the Jabra Revo corded stereo headphones I immediately realized that these weren’t your run of the mill phones.  The unit felt solid, yet flexible.  The headband was extremely comfortable, and when I placed the headphones over my ears it nearly silenced the outside world, yet I felt no tightness or irritating constraint as is the norm in most […]

  • While listening to Pandora, those ads can sometimes be really annoying, repetitive, and disruptive to your vibe.  Here’s how to skip them. Before everyone freaks out and accuses me of circumventing a service which ultimately benefits an artist let me say three things: 1.  My old band Los Burbanks is on Pandora under “Burbanks” and I’ve never received any income despite having a significant number of plays. 2.  Artists that are dead like Beethoven & Bach receive no royalties and never did to begin with.  Most artists die poor men (most still do).  The people making the money are the middlemen and businessmen of the world, not the people who make the music. (Aside from a handful of sell outs […]

  • Ever since I stumbled upon the Yoshida Brothers music I have been blasting their tunes everywhere I go.  Although it is an acquired taste, I find the transition to semi-traditional Japanese music easy.  That’s probably due to the fact that I have been listening to the Black Mages for 2 months straight. The Yoshida Brothers blend traditional Japanese folk music with modern styles including techno, hip hop, rock, blues, and more.  I find the most gripping songs to be the traditional Japanese styles blended with a solid almost techno backbeat.  I especially dig the song Kodo (Inside the Sun Remix).  That whole song is a great soundtrack when driving through a busy city at night.  Another track that gets my […]
