New Corners
Fresh for 2011, BendingCorners has a new look (logo, fonts, colors) and a redesigned display.

Its been over 5 years since we last touched the overall site design, and after the sponge attack of late 2010 and the following month long music shutdown (and our near financial collapse), we decided to pamper ourselves with a face lift. BendingCorners is a mix of classic and modern grooves, so we thought it appropriate to create a look that merges old and new - "BendingCorners" is rendered in the classic 60's psychedelic poster art font created by Wes Wilson while "jazz-n-groove" is in the modern round Arista font.

Happy 2011 - the Music Returns
After going through our log files to find all the nefarious MP3 sponges (and adding them to our IP-block list), we have re-enabled all our MP3 files. If you aren't able to access an MP3 file that means you have already downloaded hundreds of files and are on our "sponge list".
Be good, don't sponge music.
