Paul’s Boutique Demos!

“People ask me when my tape is comin’ out yall well here it is yall and its clout!” I was gonna continue the Beastie Boys Live series and then I decided to switch things up this week and share some demo songs with you! Specifically demos from Paul’s Boutique! 12 tracks including Full Clout which is an early version of Shake Your Rump.

This album is widely regarded as Beastie Boys best work to date, and one of the greatest albums of all time. I agree with half of that statement. It is one of the greatest albums of all time, but I don’t feel like it can be considered their best work. They are simply rapping over other people’s work (in this case brilliant production from the Dust Brothers) so in that sense it’s no different than License to Ill. To me, their next three albums (Check Your Head, Ill Communication, and Hello Nasty) have to be their best work as they most accurately describe their talent as actual musicians. I personally like Ill Communication the best, feel free to disagree (just know that you are wrong).

Let’s just get to the music shall we? You probably skipped that entire paragraph anyways…

Enjoy!

  • Dixie Cup

    I think your missing Ace of Bass as one of the 90’s must have albums.. think about it.

  • D.no

    “looking down the barrel of a gun” one of my fav’s!!
    Also Kudos to Jolin’s dad for having Pauls!! That is a father we should all try to be like….one day…

Pattern — The Simple Drawing App Every Designer Has Been Waiting For

1-pattern-screenshot

Pattern is a fantastic little app (available in the App Store as of today) created by former Facebook product designer Andy Chung, specifically for the purpose of ideation and early stage design. Its simple tools and charming interface feel equal parts whiteboard and grid paper.

I tried Pattern before it was released and I absolutely loved it. You can see in the video clip below just how beautifully considered it is. This is what the Apple Pencil was designed for; the lines it produces both look and feel great. You’ll quickly find yourself using gestures too, and it’s downright enjoyable to erase with your hand and quickly make rectangles and other shapes with your fingers. You can draw up a web layout, and make notes over it, in seconds.

 

 

Andy has give us 5 promo codes to download Pattern for free! We’ll hook up the first 3 people who leave a comment here telling us about what you hope it may help you design.

At the end of the day we’ll also pick 2 more people from all the comments to also receive the promo codes (I may pick the funniest two answers, just saying).

Hit the button below and scroll to the bottom of this post to leave a comment! There’s a few more images of the app down there as well.
