The Demise of the Music Magazine

Have you been to music.mnp yet?

Check out this NPR feature on how the changing climate of the music industry is having adverse effects on music magazines. I sort of miss the pre-internet days when magazines were interesting and exciting. When was the last time you payed attention to when the new Source was coming out? But in a way, with all of the blogs floating around, the amount of (free) quality content is hard to argue with… its an interesting issue, one where, for me at least, sentimentality about what it used to mean to be a music enthusiast clashes with pragmatism. Anyway, peep the feature and let me know what you think.

***Nuff respect to Jessie from Green.MNP (go check her out you paper wastin-magazine reading eediots) for the link***

Quote of the Day


a€oeSen. Obama and I are longtime friends and allies. We often share ideas about politics, policy and language. The argument in question, on the value of words in the public square, is one about which he and I have spoken frequently before. Given the recent attacks from Sen. Clinton, I applaud him [for] responding in just the way he did.a€A
-Deval Patrick

Did Hilary not bite her whole steez from Bill?

power the R0b0tninjas ecosystem. I’m a big DS nerd, and I like this musical performance video game. Much like dubselector, the purpose of the game is simply to make music. The rules are simple for each mini-game, using a variety of touch-screen soft-interfaces. Makes for gooooood samplin…

Cabin by Lode Architects

This article appears in its entirety as seen on architecture.mnp.AA Check out the site!

Built on the site of a former 12 x 4.5 meter barn near Honfleur, France, this cabin by Lode Architects gives a feeling of elegant, earthy minimalism. Very much your typical - if not well built - cabin from the exterior, the architect’s intent is truly expressed inside - where the cabin walls are a clean, unfinished plywood and the floors are a contrasting black rubber. All of the cabin’s functions are grouped in the center of the building, with a galley kitchen opening out onto the deck [seen below] - opposite which sits a large tub [also below] within an open space, looking out through a large window onto the landscape.




The two large windows - on either end of the cabin - sit within walls that are painted a matte black, in order to create a stark contrast with the views of the landscape outside.

I think we here at MNP will be looking into renting this little gem for our ninja retreat this summer…that’d be siiick.


Additionally, this project is the first [I believe] to utelize Wallpaper* Magazine’s new ‘interactive floor plan’ feature - where visitors to the site can click an arrow located within a project’s floor plan to see a photo of the corresponding view, both for the project’s interior + exterior. Great idea.
View the project + its interactive floor plan at Wallpaper*.

Visit Lode Architects here.

::MNP thanks Kay from Wallpaper* for contacting us about their new ‘interactive floor plan’ feature::

Goodbye Neverland


Michael Jackson’s famed Neverland Valley Ranch in California will be foreclosed and sold on March 19 unless the pop star pays a balance of nearly $25 million, property records showed on Tuesday.

"You are in default of a deed of trust …," Jackson was told in the five-page filing, according to a copy of the document published by "Unless you take action to protect your property it may be sold at a public sale."

According to the documents, if Jackson fails to pay the outstanding balance, estimated at $24.5 million, Neverland would be sold to the highest bidder at a public auction on the courthouse steps.

MNP is preparing a bid, in case Michael decides not to pay up.
