Mad Catz portable drums

We promise this is the last Rock Band 2 post of the day (okay, maybe hour), but we were just pulled aside at E3 to peep some less-than over-the-radar product sheets for some upcoming Mad Catz accessories. First off, the Premium M.I.C. ($50) is said to have “studio quality” sound all the while including control buttons — something we didn’t realize was missing from the original Rock Band mic until we thought about it. Then we spotted the Portable Drums ($60), which is great news for those of you who excel at drums but like to play Rock Band on the road. They can be used on any surface and even come with foldable drum sticks. Next up, the Official Cymbals ($30 for a pack of 3 or $15 each) for the new Rock Band 2 drum kit are coming from Mad Catz. Remember those three 1/8-inch plugs on the back of the drum kit head? Yeah, these plug into those. Finally, the Kick Drum Screen doesn’t really do much, but it certainly will make you look like a pseudo-real drummer (depending on the angle). Mad Catz says all of these random accessories will hit store shelves this fall. Oh, and apologies for the image quality — these were literally taken in the corner of a crowded room with maybe two seconds of view time per page.

american artist andrew bush is a photography who lives and works in los angles. he has exhibited

in solo and group shows around the world. like most of his work, the series ’66  drives’ is more a

catalogue of work rather than a series. bush uses the camera to record reality, photographing

multiple iterations of the same subject in a seemingly banal way. looking at his work is like

examining a scientific study or an archive.
