Alright! My first burnlab post.
Thanks to Michael for the invite.
Just back from 12 days overseas, including 5 days in Barcelona and the Sonar festival. I wrote all about it in Real Detroit Weekly.
"More sophisticated than the Love Parade and more hedonistic than the DEMF, Barcelona�s annual Sonar festival is one of the world�s finest electronic music events. Combining a daytime program of experimental artists and nights of dance music powerhouse talent, Sonar is a three-day exercise in excess that you can still feel good about."

Found this in the discussions forums at Core77:
Cranbrook Design is a brand new site for and about Crannies past and current. The gallery is still a bit sparse, but there is a ton of good info and links in the forums.
There was a link error in Karl's Berlin-New York post: atouchofclassusa.com is the correct link. Although, atouchofclass.com is pretty awesome in it's own right. Wow.
Micho... what?! ;)

Kudos to Michael for putting together a fantastic new Burnlab. I'm looking forward to contributing and bringing a "left coast" sensibility to the fray. Speaking of, San Francisco's loss is Brooklyn's gain; we're losing our beloved and lovely Pheonix Perry and Bryan Jackson (otherwise known as Memory Systems and the organizers of the SYNTH festival) to Brooklyn, NY come this July, so make them feel welcome. If you haven't heard them, you can check out a sampling of their sounds in Winamp or iTunes by clicking here.

Results of our first contest: If you're still scratching your head, Chad in Santa Monica, CA nailed it right away.
"Please. That would be Fad Gadget�s 'Collapsing New People'."
Maybe we'll offer something more enticing next time, like a box of cereal.

Rem Koolhaas was the subject of a segment on NewsHour last night called 'How We Live". The segment focused on the Prada store in Soho and the statement it is making. The interviewer stayed clear of asking Rem any controversial questions like "Why did the project take so long?" You can read more and see the segment here

Horror as an aesthetic...
The headliner of a film festival coming your way...
Please Note that ICHI THE KILLER contains scenes of extremely graphic violence. No One Under 18 Will Be Admitted To This Screening. Adapted from an ultra-popular manga comic banned in several Japanese prefectures, ICHI is one of the funniest, most horrific, blood-drenched yakuza thrillers ever made. online review by someone i trust here.

An architect from Brooklyn Heights has started a petition to encourage a design competition for the World Trade Center site in hopes of a more inspirational solution than what the Port Authority and Lower Manhattan Development Corporation may come up with left to their own devices and poor record. Please visit the site here, read the statement, sign and forward it to anyone you know who cares about architecture, New York City and the future of this important site.

Welcome to Burnlab.net year 3. [So sorry for the delay!]
As you can see we're still reworking the regular departments, which should be available soon. This will include a streamlined Purgatory section which houses all of our collaborative and cross-disciplinary projects, as well as a new Conspirators section - including our new editors. Please enjoy and check back soon as the Lab Report begins to fill up with all the news, links, insights and rants we love to provide.
There are several big projects in the pipeline with some of our associates. More info on those in the coming days and weeks.
