I’ve just  found a nice page that shows a wonderful book made only with music covers from custom made J-cards, mixtapes and CDs. Actually is made here in Catalonia where I live, which made me double happy. I love to watch such tape art, really. I’d spend countless hours looking to every one of these […]

I’m preparing a thorough, in-depth article about it where I’ll explain all details about that.

Interesting question, indeed, because no company that were […]

I recently started a thread at S2G forums where I search some someone that wants to exchange some rock. I love rock (specially hard and alternative rock) and wanted to swap. After some work, I ended up with a list of songs that I’ve recorded on a 90 min tape. First I recorded them in […]

Recently I went to Els Encants, a very big flea market here in Barcelona. It’s a very well organized place, very big, with lot of stuff and small stores selling their 2nd hand stuff. There are some antique stores and even a vinyl store. And the typical rubbish men with almost everything you can think […]
