What's In Your Toolbox?

So, my nightmare is over... OK, that may be an overly dramatic way of saying that this issue is out AFTER Halloween due to difficult circumstances for this one-man magazine production team. It's no reflection on my great freelance writers, who work very hard to hit the deadlines I give them and do their best to make my job of editing a lot easier than it could be. If only I had a personal clone or two in MY toolbox... In this issue, some of those writers answer the cover question, with either actual physical implements or to... [read more]

Reflecting on Visuals: Photo & Video in the Spotlight

Mobile Beat is certainly a lean, (not so) mean, stripped-down machine these days, so occasionally Publisher Ryan Burger says, "Dan, don't worry if the issue is a little short, let's just get 'er done..." Such was the case with this summertime issue. Unfortunately(?), I was showered with so much great content, on so many different aspects of video and photography as they relate to DJs, that I just HAD to get it all in. But I think you'll be thanking me after you check it out. (Sorry Ryan.) ~ Dan Wals... [read more]
