Tetro – Francis Ford Coppola

I don't usually advertise films, but this trailer gives me shivers. Too bad it's opening only in select cities (today).

Teenage Engineering

It won't be out for awhile, but I'm already salivating for the OP-1, a small but surprisingly powerful controller-synth. At 4 x 11 inches, it's mega portable, sounds amazing, and is oh so styling.

Here's what Teenage Engineering, the designers of the synth, have to say about it...

OP-1 stands for Operator 1 and is a pocket size controller for your favorite software sequencer. Connect it to your laptop and it lets you control your sequencers transport with the common play, stop, rec, forward and rewind. Use it to control your software synthesizers with the 4 rotary encoders and 16 dedicated quick keys for fast selections.

There's also a built in motion sensor; you can shake the thing around to change the timbre of the sounds. Or sample beats directly from the built-in FM radio (how cool). You can even "memorize a tune by whistling it into the built-in microphone." All in all, it's pretty amazing what they fit into this thing.

Interestingly enough... they're not mentioning a price.

Just a quick note... after a long absence, the Myst and Riven soundtracks will soon be available again. Give it about 4 - 6 weeks and you'll be able to find them at most online stores, such as: Itunes (U.S. and Internationally), Amazon, Rhapsody, Napster, IMVU, Lala, Shockhound, and Amie Street.

I'll let you know when they're out.
