Can't really argue with this, can you? And who wouldn't want an English-made 'Top Gear' mixer... UPDATE: The aforementioned Dude (Dan) will be appearing a the Sonic Picnic in Plymouth (England) on 22-25th June.

A Stanton DJ mixer was returned to the shop I worked in. The mixer was faulty it acted like a synth. There was a tunable tone coming out of the thing. It was actually pretty cool. You could tune it with the EQ knobs and cut it on/off with the crossfader. Played with it for about a day before we had to send it off to repair.
David Myers fronted a one man industrial band called arcane device back in the 80s. He used reboxed mixers and analouge effects units looped up and would create what he called feedback music. check it out
I'm pointing out how far this blog has fallen, what a worthless waste of time it is. I think I made that very clear.
What do your orders have to do with that? If I "take a chill pill" will that make the blog better? No. I'm just pointing out something very obvious. My attitude is not the problem. This blog is the problem. Crap is crap, it doesn't matter if you call it "poo-poo" or "number two" or anything else.
If the only acceptable criticism is against things which actually threaten OUR LIVES, then all we can do is sing praises for the internet. There's almost nothing online which threatens anyone's life.
The truth is that this website used to be great, and now it totally sucks. I have every right and reason to point that out. Your comments are totally irrelevant to the obvious collapse of Music Thing.
To the whiner: What a silly rant. The reason blogs are better than forums is generally you don't have to deal with this kind of whining crap. Honestly, what a futile thing to rant about... it makes you look pompous and devoid of a life. The web is a big place, if you don't like something, just move on... is it really worth getting so negative over? You should feel really small and stupid. Personally I'm not a huge fan of circuit bending and making music with game consoles etc, but there's plenty of other things to devote time to (like making music instead of sitting on your arse on the web).
...to Tom - I love your blog, I guess lately you're busy as your posts are few and far between, and when they do come sadly they're rather bland. I'm understand that this gig pays nothing and you have real work to do, so please just get some other geeks to pitch in when you're busy. Please!!!! Because Music Thing is a welcome distraction from my dreary life. Do it for the kids!
