It also came scratched and adhesive-stained. (Thanks for the Torrent, Jonah.) And the Beastie interview never bothered to ask them about the Trojan DRM software on the European ’5 Boroughs’. I’m glad we got to hear about Yauch’s phat bong push-button bong, though, that TOTALLY made up for any actual journalism we were missing out on.

Congratulations! (and thank you!)

But I’m curious as to why Wired/CC didn’t help us out by doing some of the sampling for us ? Why not include a data section on the disc with some/all/the best hooks/beats/riffs/phrases *already sampled* and presented as seperate .wav or .mp3 (or even .ogg !) files. I’m sure a lot of people would like to try sampling, but for many of us we don’t know how to set up a properly timed loop, or filter a sample to seperate the sound elements in it. If you provided the samples that’d help people get started :)

Thanks again for a great project !
