Past Week at Twitter.com/Disquiet

  • When my two-month-old says "oh" it's the "oh" from opening of the Beatles' "Thank You Girl." #
  • Interview with one of my fave producers on non-musicianship: http://is.gd/gLyCo Oh, that's DJ Premier. Here's Brian Eno: http://is.gd/gLy4j #
  • Maybe it's just early but UnsilentNight.com has no date for San Francisco. Unsilent Night is like the only holiday I like besides Turkeyday. #
  • Afternoon field recording: rain drips in a gallery while hanging a show http://is.gd/gL6e8 from @wcraghead #
  • Six degrees of Doctor Wu, aka the Steely Dan Database: http://212.178.99.195/SteelyDanDatabase/ #
  • John McLaughlin is apparently sitting in with the Roots tonight on Jimmy Fallon. #tivoalert #

  • Morning sounds: baby hiccups, fridge, hard drives, cars. #
  • ♪ Early-evening industrial ambient audio stream: "Fatigue (Adamned Age) Mystified Remix" http://snd.sc/ceDLJ3 #
  • Dec @shonenjump announces big reboot for Jan 2010 issue. Can't wait to see it. Almost two years since I left as editor-in-chief. #
  • My kid increasingly reminds me of Minoru from the manga Baby and Me. #
  • Nearby Vietnamese spot calls banh mi "panini." Dim sum place: zongzi = "Chinese tamales." Are the pelmeni I just had "Russian xiaolongbao"? #
  • Track the subtle nuances in Don Draper saying "What?" ("Whuh?" "Wha?" "Whut?") http://is.gd/gIJwe #madmen #
  • Looks like next week's MP3 Discussion Group on Disquiet.com will be the new Brian Eno album. #
  • Morning sounds: bus slow to stop, hard drives on stun, & (in my head) mishmash of countless Beatles songs I sang baby to sleep w/ last night #
  • Noticed I'm using @simplenoteapp more and @evernote less. For text, that is. Use the latter for audio notes a lot, but for text the former. #
  • Distant siren to the north and muffled televised newscast from living room (technically the south) conspire to suggest (false) emergency. #
  • 2nd or 3rd best thing about Brian Eno self-interview is people who don't get the joke. See comments: http://is.gd/gG4nl http://is.gd/gG4xJ #
  • Angry Birds may be funnier with sound off. No grunting, wheezing or cheering. Just a Road Runner desert and much well-timed physical comedy. #
  • Hope early visitors for Seeing Orange: Dutch Design Week SF think orange-lit buildings honor Koolhaas, Wanders, Baas & Co http://is.gd/gFT9J #
  • If full copy of Put Me in the Zoo were as out of registration as the violet spread, it'd be on a shelf next to Carsten Nicolai's Moiré Index #
  • Want to read "Put Me in the Zoo" by Robert Lopshire to my baby. End up explaining what "out of registration" means. #
  • Election hangover: wake to find I agree w/ Scalia: "You are asking us to create a whole new prohibition?" http://is.gd/gFCP1 re: vidgame law #
  • New Neal Stephenson essay "Atoms of Cognition: Metaphysics in the Royal Society" in Bill Bryson–edited Seeing Further http://is.gd/gCFmB #
  • .@apfrod May very well take you up on interview dare. These kick-interface Fisher Price toys are like Dance Dance Revolution for infants. in reply to apfrod #
  • Not sure what @michaelpachter means re: Nintendo DS being "under assault" by iOS. They make beautiful music together http://is.gd/gCDNs :) #
  • More Rip Van Winkle than Groundhog Day, we wake up and Tipper Gore has returned dressed as Arnold Schwarzenegger http://is.gd/gCD1U #
  • Kids in the street banging pots and pans. No, the Travel Channel isn't playing the background. The Giants have won. #
  • Non-stop election fund-raising pleas cause PBS pledge-month flashbacks; keep getting audio-visual hallucinations of John Tesh at Red Rocks. #
  • Zimoun, sound poet of the DC motor, moves from pastic and metal to the world of cardboard. Video: http://is.gd/gAgdQ #
  • First electronic music in baby's heavy rotation is by anonymous chiptune musicians at Fisher Price. #
  • Many hours of the day, I get email newsletters from one or another newspaper from somewhere in the world where it is, at that moment, noon. #

  • Relieved that @stonesthrow has migrated its Beat Battles to @soundcloud in advance of the shutdown of drop.io. #

  • RT @pheezy Listening to a variety of late-night hums: power supply, refrigerator, air filter, disk drives and traffic. #eartwit #
  • RIP, George Hickenlooper (Factory Girl, Hearts of Darkness) — please say hi to John Linck for me. #
  • Hear marching band practice from shopping-mall parking lot: drums echoed, horns muted, timpani piercing. Like a Just Blaze beat, but live. #
  • Sold my Technics 1200s, same weekend as rumors float, again, of production stop. #
  • .@catchfoot Morning sounds, yeah, always with the hard drives. I've got to get better at tweeting from my flash-driven phone and iPod Touch. #
