The M Machine Reimagines Rubblebucket’s ‘Sound Of Erasing’
The M Machine has consistently proven that they are one of the most unique and forward-thinking acts in electronic music, and their new remix of indie band Rubblebucket’s Sound of Erasing continues that trend.
Full of unconventional bleeps, quirky synth stabs, and playful vocals, Sound Of Erasing is an eclectic, feel-good experience. It is both chill and remarkably upbeat, and the sugar-sweet sounds and effects give it a certain MGMT vibe.
Upon hearing the remix, lead vocalist Kal, who also happens to be cousins with Swardy from The M Machine, remarked, “soooo fkn deep and rocking and punchy and beachy all at the same time!” We couldn’t agree more.

Graeme Borland is a 23 year old concept artist from Canada. Throughout his artistic journey, he’s explored a number of different formats. From comics and doodles in his middle school days, to 3D art in his teens, and to the now 2 year old daily sketch project that is his Tumblr blog. When asked what inspired him to start making art, Graeme said:
“I’ve been a game developer since I got my first computer, and the idea of creating worlds and environments has always been interesting to me. Eventually I sort of just figured out that digital painting is one of the fastest ways to get an idea out of my head and into a useful form. I can have an idea, work for 30 minutes and see that idea on the screen. That kind of turnaround time is extremely fast compared to building environments in 3D or levels in a game, and having a quick outlet for ideas is important to me, so it was a natural fit.”

Sure I’m wearing pajamas in the afternoon on a Tuesday and my 3yo might have just pooped on the carpet, but according to The webbys I’m a winner.
The M Machine live at The Pagoda stage at Shambhala 2014 (BC, Canada) - August 9, 2014
SUCH a good set. I’d pimped out The M Machine hard to basically everyone I talked to and they didn’t disappoint! Highlights included my Drum&Bass-head friends dancing until they were hot sweaty messes, even when they dropped in some trance, and producer friends declaring their transitions and beat matching “technically perfect”.
The best for me - other than getting to party hard to one of my favorite acts - was that after losing track of all of our friends in the forest earlier in the night, all dozen of us miraculously managed to find each other on the stage left catwalk to enjoy some really great music together.
swardy - Thanks for a kick-ass party! I hope you guys had an awesome time at our little festival!
Magic: the Gathering - Vronos
At the top - awesome art by Chippy with the remaining images from the Magic 2015 - Duels of the Planeswalkers trailer showing a sticky end for the Planeswalker Vronos - BUT - just who was Vronos anywhooos ?? For all things storyline, pop on over to Doug Beyer’s Tumblr - for now, here’s the 4.1.1. from the MTGSalvation Wiki -
Vronos, nicknamed the Grey Fencer, was an Elite Inquisitor from Innistrad. When he was attacked by a pack of young werewolves his planeswalker’s spark ignited and he ended up wounded on Alara where he was studied by the Vedalken Ethersworn. Vronos demanded a high price in return: knowledge. He uncovered some of the lore within the sacred Texts, learned the basic nature of a strange metal and its long-lost creator, and practiced the arcane arts of the metal-working wizards. He repaired his ravaged face with an etherium infix and crafted a filigreed mask of the same material.
After many months of study and travel, he returned to Innistrad as a penitent. He was then charged by Avacyn to find the cursed Garruk Wildspeaker so that she could heal him. He failed and was killed by Garruk instead.
