Past Week at Twitter.com/Disquiet

  • Sony "reportedly ceased production of all cassette Walkmans and will stop selling them in Japan as soon as the current inventory runs out." #
  • In this week's The Good Wife, alarm of car being battered by character beats in time with song on soundtrack. #tvsonics #
  • In this week's NCIS, binaural audio of recorded gunshots used to identify murderer's rifle. #tvsonics #
  • Alarmed, so to speak, to hear Tues-noon city-wide emergency siren on Thurs at 10:20am, not realizing it's a quake drill: http://is.gd/gbvVK #
  • Back from Sacramento, where I ran into someone at a concert from whom I had borrowed a paperback book in, like, 1993 or 1994. #
  • Cold night, most homes' windows closed, but on walk home there's communal if disparate cheering, no doubt related to Giants game. #
  • Digging into advance copy of forthcoming Brian Eno album. #
  • The more extremely vertiginous of Wayne Thiebaud's paintings have come to seem, to me, of a piece with Leb Woods's impossible architectures. #
  • When visiting Sacramento from San Francisco you need to adjust your ears to filter through sound of (seasonally present) air conditioning. #
  • The beautiful extension of the Crocker Art Museum (classic building with sleek contemporary wing) is like an expanded version of @sjmusart #
  • Photo of those four great Fred Dalkey portraits of (unidentified) Joseph Beuys at ccasac.org: http://ow.ly/i/4KdM #
  • Great quartet of portraits by Fred Dalkey of (unidentified) Joseph Beuys at ccasac.org in Sacramento. #
  • Waking to motel's combination of vacuum cleaners and leaf blowers. And news of GarageBand's metric equivalent of AutoTune. #
  • ♫ Afternoon tunes: the tasty broken-funk mixes and mashes of Mogillah at http://soundcloud.com/mogillah #
  • Hotel sounds: freeway motion, passing service staff's keys, refrigerator rattles, children talking rapidly (correlates with pool proximity). #
  • Driving solo to Sacto; recalling what @andybattaglia9 once said to me about moving to NYC from ATL & missing solitude of car surround sound. #
  • The noon sirens are echoing formidably today, all 104 of 'em. #
  • Headed up to the state's capital (CA, that is) for 36 hours for some research. If anything #sound ish is going on, please lemme know. #
  • Rock'n'roll legend Leon Russell: "My hobby is silence" http://is.gd/g8qjV #
  • Karen M. O'Leary's amazing cut-out maps: http://is.gd/g8j1S Corresponds well with earlier Jill Silvia spreadsheets & way up @bldgblog alley. #
  • When I first read of @tylergreendc re-installing @sfmoma collection I thought it was some cool new web-based application http://is.gd/g8iAV #
  • Don't upgrade OS or install significant new software before trip. Don't upgrade OS or install significant new software before trip. Repeat. #
  • RIP, jazz saxophonost and Coltrane alum Marion Brown (b. 1935. via @pheezy #
  • Alfred Molina was a good Mark Rothko (hampered by script that played for laughs) but I really wanna see his mordant funnyman Morton Feldman. #
  • The issue with Android OS for me isn't fragmentation. It's that the root (so to speak) build remains a largely inaccessible Platonic ideal. #
  • Two more tracks from forthcoming Brian Eno CD, Small Craft on a Milk Sea, ("Horse," "Emerald and Stone"), now streaming: http://is.gd/g6TX8 #
  • Excellent. Michael Brook scored the new David O. Russell film, The Fighter. #
