Prototyping

Juuuuust prototyping. Don’t get excited. Perfecting a new design can take years of experimentation and testing. Yes they work on the beaches of Long Island, but will they perform on a Carribean beach in exactly the same way? – so the it’s off to Bahamas for more testing. Its exhausting. We dont do it for ourselves – we do it for you. We do it all for you.

Classic But Possibly Crazy Making Style Choices

Malachite walls may make your studio look bigger…assuming you can still see after the series of seizures it will cause. Do you literally disappear in this room when you wear your hooded malachite cat suit? Do you change your name to Malachite? Or do you never mention malachite but wear only lemon yellow for a year or until it feels right?

….but when Agate Mylar is an option, who wouldn’t go with AGATE MYLAR??

A certain Euro-compatible voltage of musical excitement and anticipation has been zapping around our headquarters as we begin to envision and to schedule our biggest Web Based Web Event to date.

The Week-long ABBA Web Event presented by BillyBeyond.com™© and blue eyeshadow.

 

UPDATE: A date for our upcoming ABBA Week-long Web Event has been firmed up  after nearly five unanswered telegrams from BBHQ to the Ledendary Scando Quartet. It is with great pleasure that we can now announce that this seminal (to some) WLWE ( Week Long Web Event ) will begin pretty soon.

ABBA – the original yabba zabba

 

ABBA – In the industry, the result of their  inventive approach to the very sound of recorded music became a technique known simply as “Perfect  Production.”

 

ABBA – Is it true they own Sweden? Find out during our WLWE!!!
