Bryce Bell is a Mechanical Engineer from Oklahoma. It started as just a fun project when he designed and built the Cardapult to see if it could be done. People seemed to like the idea alot so he started a company geared towards making business card sized mechanical marvels. The prototypes are cut with a laser cutter and hand assembled. You can tell alot of time and effort went into figuring out how to do this.

Here’s a dose of funk for your day.
A good musician makes love to their instrument. Bernard is making that sweet sweet love.
It’s that time again. February is fast approaching. Between planning for Costa Rica, LA, and Austin, I’m going to somehow fit in making an album in the month of Feb.
Record an album in February 2009 that’s 10 songs or 35 minutes long
* Recording can only be done in the month of February – no prerecorded songs.
* All material must be previously unreleased, and we encourage you to write the material during

If you remember, RPM 2008 was the beast that spawned this project:
Pitchfork raved about it, people downloaded it way more than I ever expected (over 5,000 unique downloads), and it turned out to be a pretty decent undertaking.
So let’s do it again.
Keep an eye out.
Shit I think my best drunken sex story took place up by Northwestern.
But before I start, this never happened, I wasn’t there, and if you know anybody who thinks they might have suffered due to this event, just tell them I channeled psychically it all via the Prophet Marvos from the Isle of Lemuria.
Which is true.
Anyway, one of my boy’s had a good friend called Chance who is a master at macking girls. I mean, it’s ridiculous. Whenever I heard tell of a party via Chance, I knew it was a good thing to try and get my ass to, even if it meant an hour and a half on the El or whatever. Why?
Chance got so many broads horny there was hope of catching collateral booty.
Looking back, though, I think Chance didn’t even make it to this one. There was a period he didn’t like coming out if me and a few others were gonna be there, seeing how as we would fill any idle moment between hovering around the keg and looking for booty with stuffing our pockets full of the other kind of booty, doing indoor graffiti (very avant garde), pouring the contents of people’s refrigerators into people’s toasters, stealing more stuff, peeing into the trashcan next to the toilet, etc. We were kind of like… I don’t know… mean fellers I guess really is all you can say. Chance, in spite of his adamantine game, probably found being held responsible for the actions of a herd of urukai in saggy jeans a bit of a cockblock.
The Throwdown is coming gentlemen. I was lucky enough to play for you guys last year and this year I hope to do it again. A couple people have asked that I play certain songs this year and I think that method of deciding the playlist is a really good idea. So here we go.
These are the suggestions I’ve gotten so far. If you want a song not on the list, feel free to write it in.
