The two rules of amateur music production: 1) Anything can be recorded reasonably well with an SM57. 2) You can never own too many instruments.
Look at the covers of all your favorite metal albums. While they'll probably fall into a few different schools of design, you can bet not a single one looks like anything that came out of the 1950s jazz scene. But judging from Brazilian designer Rafael Melandi's redesigns—maybe they should have.
These amazing, almost 100-year old covers of the weekly French magazine Le Petite Journal are from the online collection of the french National Library. They show what were the most exciting innovations of the 1920s, and how people in Europe imagined the future of technology and science.
Ebooks are convenient and all, but there's nothing quite like an awesome, physical book cover to really get you stoked to dive into a old-school tome. The words inside are important, but there's something to be said for a really nice piece of shelf-candy too.
The worst album covers of all time made me miss the good old times of record shops. These books—some of them fake—just scare me. They scare me because, with the advent of personal digital book publishing, things are probably going to get even worse.
All this digital music stuff has destroyed one of my old guilty pleasures. No, not listening all day long to the warm sound, the pops and crackles of Delicate Sound of Thunder on my father's big cans. I'm talking about flipping through album covers at record stores.Where can I find this jewel? Do I want to find…
This tumblr is genius, in a disturbingly macabre way: Jean-Marie Delbes and Hatim El Hihi are photoshopping dead band members out of famous album covers. The results are oh-so-perfect and weird. Eternity was never so ephemeral.
The Kindle Fire's not even a day old, but Amazon's already pretty packed full of covers and sleeves. And with the Fire shipping today—a day early—we've rounded up some of the best to fit your particular needs.
Oh God. Why would they do such horrific things to a beautiful iPad 2? It's like a child to me. And here they are, subjecting it to unforgivably brutal impact tests, just to see how well the Smart Cover protects.
Let's pause (paws?) briefly to appreciate this oddly enjoyable cover of Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" made entirely with iPad apps, including an app called Cat Piano playing the vocal melody. As YouTube commenter miesvanderrobot notes, it's "actually surprisingly apt." [YouTube]
There's no point pretending you use your BlackBerry for anything other than emailing and checking share prices, suits. Remove that Twilight cover, and put on the retractable-antenna case instead. It's like you're in Wall Street. Oh wait—you are.
Realizing that tech nerds like space, the environment (well, in small doses—and only on a 1080p monitor) and everything else that Mother Nature supplies us with, National Geographic has teamed up with Gelaskins for some natty nature covers.
Designer Emil Kozak has knocked together some graphic Dell skins which will help out the (Product) Red charity. There's four different designs, with 23 color variations to choose from, and conveniently help disguise the fact that you own a Dell.
Handcrafts made to look like old pieces of Nintendo hardware are great. Which is why this Netbook cover, received as a gift by Flickr user Mendicon, speaks for itself. But I think this could be even better.
Are you one of those people who has to bang on the Rock Band drums as hard as humanly possible, leaving yourself open to a possible eviction notice? Here's a $40 purchaseable custom-made Rock Band drum kit crochet cosy set, made just for softening your blows and keeping you on your lease. All four are color-matched to…
The CarCapsule is rather self-explanatory—it's a capsule for your car. Given the $269 price point for an 8-foot version, or $419 for the 22-foot version, we're guessing you'll be wanting a pretty nice car that would be worth the fuss of setup, as well as the cost of mass, super-tough PVC. If you have a Ferrari, you're…
