Charles and Ray Eames are design pioneers and personal heros. They were well known for projects such as the Powers of Ten, Eames House, Eames Lounge Chair, and much more. Their 901 studio in Venice was a living visual labratory. Though, what I found most admirable was their willingness to try new things, and seamlessly collaborate.
I have always been obsessed with the idea of scale, and I am convinced that the Powers of Ten which I saw in elementary, was directly responsible in planting that seed.
Because Im incredibly broke right now Ive decided to sell my last few copies of the Japanese edition of "They Hate Francisco False" which features two extra songs, slightly modified artwork and a booklet in Japanese with what I believe is a bio about me and my family... I realize some American people are interested in this and it is WAY too expensive (upwards of 40 dollars) online... Im selling this for $15 shipping included... you can paypal the money to me at firstname.lastname@example.org thanks... -ceschi
OK, if this works, it's truly amazing. It's also pretty surprising that no one has thought of this before. Apparently, a software mod has been created, which basically transforms one of those cute lil MPC 1000's into a full fledged MPC2500.
The 2500 is a beast with tons of features, but the $2000 price tag is likely to deter most users.
Word on the street is that the mod developer is going to eventually start charging for this as he works out the bugs. It shouldn't be too far in the future when we see a similar modification for the other MPC models.
Be warned that we haven't tried this ourselves, and are not responsible for blowing up or crippling your machine. Additionally, the site is in Japanese but i've linked you to the translation. It's not hard to read.
A brave friend is going to try it out and let us know what happens. We'll post his findings soon.

The Hamburger City release party looks to have been a pretty epic one, with apparent cameos by The Game and Sen Dog of Cypress Hill. All photos property of Turntablelab who sponsered the shindig. Congrats to Ray and the gang!
Do yourself a favor and check out the premiere episode of DJ Stef's Vinyl Exchange TV. Touted as a "a new online interview series for hip-hop vinyl junkies," we consider this SF based video magazine a must-see.
I'd like to note that we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the production and highly amused by the Eddie K and Marz segment. And no, we have no affiliation to VETV, but if the premiere is any indication, we're expecting big things!
"The premiere episode of VETV features emcee Eddie K and DJ Marz, Future Primitive Sound's creative director Mark Herlihy with DJ RasCue, and Cool Chris of Groove Merchant, who all call the Bay Area home.
Eddie K is the emcee for the Bullet Proof Scratch Hamsters/Space Travelers DJ crew with DJ Quest, Eddie Def, DJ Cue and DJ Marz. In this episode of VETV, he talks about coming up as an emcee, fills us in on his latest projects, and he and Marz offer a peek into the Gurp City experience. Get your cups and ice ready for a What It Do or Cutty Bang cocktail.
Mark Herlihy is the mastermind behind Future Primitive Sound, a record label and collective of DJs (including DJ RasCue), producers and visual artists born from the infamous Future Primitive Soundsessions, the series of cutting edge DJ events that brought the DJ to the forefront. Mark talks about the history of Future Primitive, their latest releases, and RasCue pulls his favorite record out the crate.
DJ Cool Chris owns the Groove Merchant record shop on Haight Street, made famous by the Beastie Boys in song, but mostly famed in the vinyl digging world by DJs and producers who recognize GM as one of the top spots in the world to cop the rare vinyl they're looking for. Chris also runs the Dis-joint Records label with his partner Vinnie Esparza. Chris breaks down the history of Groove Merchant and shows us a sampling of the rarities GM has to offer."
