Vice Magazin: Taliban in Pakistan

In a recent trip to Pakistan to report on the recent spike in the region’s violence and bloodshed, Suroosh Alvi heard over and over the same sentiment from people on the ground: America’s war on terror is falling flat on its face. The military conflict in neighboring Afghanistan, repeatedly cited by locals, sends a constant flood of guns, refugees, militants, and heroin flowing into Pakistan. Heroin is now actually cheaper than hashish in cities like Lahore, and the Kalashnikov culture, the foundation of which was laid 30 years ago when the CIA financed the mujahideen, is all-consuming. According to the Pakistanis he spoke to, it’s all taken a devastating toll on the country and is creating the next generation of militants.

Hoerboard Scomber Mix DJ Stand

Hoerboard, the maker of custom DJ furniture, has released a sleek new stand to support the ones and twos in style. The Hoerboard Scomber Mix DJ Stand is designed to fit classic turntables and modern cd/dvd players with a mixer in between. The dj equipment isn’t designed to rest on top of the stand, but to be inset in its top– so the system’s outputs, cabling and other messes are hidden below its surface. In a night club or a home setting, what you see is what you get– a stylish, almost monolithic-looking stand where your musical entertainment is queued and controlled.
