i can't help but be cynical about this... way too much apple plugging not to be sponsored by them... making this less cute, no? their singing is however most definately lovely

If I had the money I could have even more creative tools for art.

this is funny. How far we've come. Wonder if all music will one day just be played on electronic devices.

The audio is almost too good in terms of volume and clarity, considering the phones are mixed between handheld and tabletop. But awesome use of simple apps. MGMT = pwnd!

Both cool and really awkward. No way to look like a rocker as you tap away on an iPhone, is there?

Jason Campbell said...

I love this post. Oh the possibilities with modern technology! I also just wanted to let you know that I love and value your blog. It seems to keep me in touch with what is going on there in Chelsea. So thanks!
