04:44 pm - Facebook | Junkstock II | DIY Music Party

This year’s Junkstock party will be held on July 10th from 11am-5pm in Golden Gate Park, at Marx Meadow. Junkstock is an absolutely FREE, family friendly event.

We will feature an acoustic stage with great performers who encompass the vision that instruments, composition and performance come from, sometimes, unexpected places.

The day will include workshops—take things out of your recycle bin and make your own instruments or make household or hardware store items sing (or clank whatever the case may be)!
Music is everywhere, go out and grab it!

Our mission: No matter how much money or how much musical training you have, you can be a musician. We strive to shatter the myth that creating music is an elite pursuit; whether you play a plastic bucket or a thousand dollar guitar, expressing yourself and your soul through sound is what it's all about. We want all who attend Junkstock to leave empowered by the fact that they can play an instrument, whether it’s a voice, a guitar or a tuna can.

Who we are: We're a grass roots collective of musicians, crafters, makers, artists, teachers, makers and do-ers, who are excited about spreading the knowledge and fun inherent in Do It Yourself music making.
Performers to be confirmed but probably will include…
The Goat Family
Aesthetic Cling
5 Cent Coffee
Liquor Cake

05:39 pm - The Humble Indie Bundle (pay what you want for five awesome indie games)

via wolfire.com

"The Humble Indie Bundle is a unique kind of bundle that we are trying out.

Pay what you want. If you bought these five games separately, it would cost around $80 but we're letting you set the price!

All of the games work great on Mac, Windows, and Linux. We didn't want to leave anyone out.

There is no middle-man. You can rest assured that 100% of your purchase goes directly to the developers and non-profits as you specify (minus credit card fees).

We don't use DRM. When you buy these games, they are yours. Feel free to play them without an internet connection, back them up, and install them on all of your Macs and PCs freely.

Your contribution supports the amazing Child's Play charity and Electronic Frontier Foundation. By default, the amount is split equally between the seven participants (including Child's Play and EFF), but you can tweak the split any way you'd like.
And now, thanks to a humble donation from Amanita Design: all contributors are given a free copy of Samorost 2! "
