FOR some people, Facebook is a way to keep in contact with friends, see what they're up to and spend hours surfing through an endless stream of photos. For others, Facebook's socially driven games keep them coming back.

From Baby & Me to Bubble Bikini and Pot Farm, here are 11 games you shouldn't be broadcasting to your timeline.

Also, maybe it's time to let those crops die on FarmVille; nobody wants to help you water them anymore.

PART of PBS's Blank on Blank digital series, this recently discovered interview with Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain from 1993 has been crafted into a fascinating animated short. Cobain talks about the pressures he grew up with as a teen in Washington state, how his world changed after his parent's divorce and how everything came together after he discovered punk rock.

Other artists who have been given the Blank on Blank treatment include the Beastie Boys, Ray Charles and Janis Joplin.

 

Download of the Week: Balanced Records -- 12 Year Retrospective

bit.ly/balanced_records

OVER the past 12 years, the Balanced crew has slowly developed from an outlet for local electronic producers to an internationally respected label, thoughtfully turning out a range of styles from slow-burning dub and downtempo to broken beat, reggae and so much more. It has even spun off two sub labels: Green House and Balanced House. To celebrate over a decade of releases, one of Balanced Records' founders, Kasm, has put together a two-hour mix that digs deep into the label's back catalogue with tracks from Richie Phoe (U.K.), Billy Rockwell (Canada), Process Rebel (Netherlands) and Flying Down Thunder & Rise Ashen (Canada). More than just a retrospective, it is a testament to the label's diversity and ability to seek out new artists and emerging sounds.
