Mattel is releasing a new line of toys called Ucreate. Ucreate Music, pictured below can record samples, mix and match loops and use an
assortment of rifts, instruments, runs and backbeats to create new
music tracks. Creations can be shared with friends on Ucreate Music’s
website. Unless you count holding the recording mic near a speaker,
there seems to be no way to actually mix current pop songs on this.

These are always good stories even though they happen during sad times. You often hear about people finding rare art work in their families home when they pass away or even sometimes buying them at a garage/yard sale. Here, a familly in England discovered one of the rarest and most expensive cars in the world in the garage of a recentlty deceased familly member. The car, a 1937 Bugatti Type S Atalante is one of 17 made and is estimated as high as $8.5 million. The car will be auctioned on February 7th as part of the Bonhams Auction at the Paris Expo if anybody is interested.
For some a new year means changes, for others it’s not so different. The Neptunes are back in the studio starting the year of right. Who are they working with? Who do you guys think they should work with this year?
