Punk rock 101 – Lesson #1

Hello there fellow punkrockers (or anyone who relates to this music). This lesson will not be genre specific, nor you will have to follow every word of it. It will just serve as a guide. Where should we begin?

Anyone who wants to start out playing punkrock (or anything related) will ask themselves: “What do I need to have or know to start playing?” Well the answer is – you don’t need a thing. First off find out what your role would be in your dream band, maybe it’s singing, maybe it’s drums, guitar, piano, kazoo, … whatever. Todays lesson will be focusing on a basic punkrock trio band (guitar, bass guitar, drums). By punkrock trio you are probably thinking of Green Day or something simmilar, but that doesn’t matter (also Green Day hasn’t been a trio since like 10 years ago). Lets start…

Day 18: Guitar Making!


Cresh, I applaud you. This faggatronic manly man is near to beginning a very similar project just for fun. Bravo again and see you at the finish

Originally posted on Elias Cresh:

Day 18 on the artofmanliness.com’s 30 Day blogger challenge calls me to identify a project I’d like to make with my hands and describe the steps to completing it.  This one’s REAL easy for me as I’m already in the first stages of moving forward with it.

I’ve finally started making my very own guitar, designed by……why Elias Cresh, that’s who!

When I say I’m making my own guitar, I don’t mean I’m buying a kit and putting one together.  I’m muthafucking making one from the ground up.  I’m even forging and crafting the metal.  I’m for reals about it.

A variety of guitar picks

I’m making guitar picks out of the bones of sacrificed children.  You’ve got to go the extra mile for your passion.

November Rain introduction guitar tab

Originally posted on The Crafting of a Melody:

The song November Rain by Guns ‘n’ Roses has a really distinctive and fairly well-known piano introduction, but have we ever thought about how it might sound if played on a guitar? Well, this week I’ve been learning it on a classical guitar (I think it’s best suited to classical, but it works on any kind of guitar), and it isn’t all that hard to play. When I initially started to learn it, I searched the Internet for a tab. There weren’t many out there – perhaps unsurprisingly, considering how it’s not a guitar part. In fact, this one and a duplicate or two were all I could find.

However, there are a few things I don’t like about that tab. First of all, I think the part sounds better an octave lower than it’s written there; sure, that tab is in the same octave as it’s played on the…

If you knew me in high school…

…you knew I had a huge thing for Aladdin.

Before Aladdin was released in November 1992, I wasn’t a huge Disney kid. In fact, to this day I have yet to see The Little Mermaid or Beauty and the Beast (I can hear your collective gasps right now), but there was something about Aladdin that changed things for me.

Back then, I wasn’t aware of what that something was, but as I got older it became more obvious.

On its surface, Aladdin was colorful, funny, smart, and full of pop culture references (something that no animated films were doing at the time, let alone Disney animated films). But beneath all of that, something much more substantial was present. For me, Aladdin was an epiphany, a revelation that creative people could actually make a living making cool shit.

Before its release, I just assumed I’d graduate high school, then go on and graduate…

We swear we won’t tell anyone if you buy one of these super lifelike love dolls from Japan


whatever happened to Real Dolls? I haven’t heard about them or even seen anything of them since their segment on Real Sex like 5000 years ago lol

Originally posted on RocketNews24:


Hi, perverts! If you’re one of those people that’s been on the lookout for a hyper-realistic sex doll to call your own, then look no further – Japanese company Oriental Industry, which specializes in life-size silicon sex dolls, has you covered.

The dolls, which are somewhat racistly/sexistly called “Dutch Wives” in Japan are apparently so realistic, Japanese media is convinced that if you buy one you’ll never need a real girlfriend again.

PirateCade is an Impressive Feat of Woodworking and Design


great things

Retro Arcade Machine Keeps the Classics

A six month journey of blood sweat and tears is finally over for [David Carver] and what he is left with is nothing short of beautiful. He calls it the PirateCade. We call it the perfect arcade cabinet.

This project is actually [David's] very first Raspberry Pi project – at least it was, until his Pi crapped out on him. After running into too many problems with it and SD card corruptions, [David] decided against the RetroPie project platform and decided to upgrade to a full-blown PC, using an AtomicFE front-end and the Ultimark Ipac.

The entire cabinet is hand made out of solid wood; he didn’t have access to any fancy CNC routers or laser cutters. We gotta hand it to him, he’s quite the cabinet maker for an electronics guy.

Mavericks/Haswell Kernel Patch for Early Reboot

Originally posted on racerrehabman:

One of the big changes for mach_kernel in OS X Mavericks is the relocation of CPU power management into the kernel (for Haswell only). What used to happen in AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext, now happens in the kernel. Since this kernel writes to potentially locked MSRs, this can be a problem for computers where the BIOS cannot be patched, or simply where the owner of the computer does not want to patch the BIOS. But since Apple did not include the code to XCPM (XNU CPU Power Management) in the sources provided for the 10.9 kernel, if you build mach_kernel from sources, the XCPM code and thus the code writing to locked MSRs is not included. I wrote about this initially when I discovered it while trying to get Mavericks running on a Haswell-based HP laptop. See here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/293503-haswell-early-reboot-mavericks-locked-msrs-and-hp-envy-15-j063cl-i7-4700mq/

As mentioned in that post, my reason for building the kernel myself was to…

How to choose the right iOS app for your note taking needs


Penultimate syncs with Evernote and i Love it, also Bamboo Paper is great

Originally posted on Gigaom:

There are many different ways you can capture a thought or idea when using your iPhone or iPad. Some apps like Day One behave more like a journal, keeping things in order by date. Other apps like Appigo’s Todo allow you to track your daily tasks by checking items off a list. There are even apps that can help you organize your thoughts like MindNode.

There are so many options available that finding a simple note taking app to suits your needs can be a challenge. The following list highlights apps that distinguish themselves with a certain key feature:
