VIE SHAIR: Pain-Free Social Headphones by Vie Style Inc. — Kickstarter

“minimal skin contact” means it will exert greater pressure on the points it’s touching, and it looks like fairly stiff plastic, so I fail to see how this would be more comfortable. A knife has a lot less skin contact than a towel…

Newvelle Records is a new kind of record label with a curated selection of world class musicians, released only on vinyl.

Make the Censors Watch ‘Paint Drying’ by Charlie Lyne — Kickstarter

The British Board of Film Certification (previously known as the British Board of Film Censors) was established in 1912 to ensure films remained free of ‘indecorous dancing’, ‘references to controversial politics’ and ‘men and women in bed together’, amongst other perceived indiscretions.

Today, it continues to censor and in some cases ban films, while UK law ensures that, in effect, a film cannot be released in British cinemas without a BBFC certificate.

Each certificate costs around £1000 for a feature film of average length. For many independent filmmakers, such a large upfront can prove prohibitively expensive.
