  • .@vuzhmusic Thanks. I'm glad you noticed. It's become a kind of "post test": is there a sentence or clause that stands on its own? #
  • Wanna thank my 9-month-old for inspiring purchase of food mill, which has (beyond mulching peas) enabled a great olive tapenade #
  • Local movie theater's marquee makes certain we know movies are shown "in 2D" #
  • Current discussion: Comparing a synthesizer with a piano and a cello, what is an instrument in our post-laptop days? http://bit.ly/koXWxl #
  • Added-on camera-lens glint in Super 8 was as much of the CGI budget as the monster. (And the model-painting comparison was a nice touch.) #
  • Sounds of the day: ancient lady's rickety two-wheel cart on sidewalk, flag post attached to wood exterior wall creaking in light wind. #
  • But: I like the idea of dancing about architecture. #
  • "Closed Monday and Tuesday to make sausage." (Yanni's in Pengrove, CA) #
  • Noon bells, heard from one block away. Clang -> echo -> memory. #
  • The podcast/broadcast series @thetheradius is great, and I'm addicted to its brief, glitchy opening theme http://bit.ly/iCq6AB #
  • Fully tired of the "small screen"/"big screen" euphemisms for TV/film. How about intimate/mass, domestic/public? #
  • Stilll waiting for that Breakbeat Era reunion. #
  • Based on initial test, the ""Stereo Output Distribution Machine" I purchased for $1.50 at Daiso is worth about $1.50. #
  • .@DJ_Moderne Yeah, waveforms are like looking at the music's undergarments. #
  • Playing a track in fast forward isn't the worst way to come to understand its structure. #
  • Are people getting onto http://t.co/0idUMCu? Still seems down, from DDoS attack. I'm reading reports it's back up, but not for me. #
  • Finished watching CBC's Intelligence. Solid. Actor Eugene Lipinski is a revelation. And Schaun Tozer's score is artfully economical. #
  • What I'm talking about. RT @debcha I usually listen to locked groove on Peter Broderick's Home for at least ten minutes before moving needle #
  • Bought a tidy headphone splitter. The Japanese packaging translation reads "Stereo Output Distribution Machine." #
  • My friends: connoisseurs of their albums' blank spaces. RT @vuzhmusic I have a few really great run-out grooves that I've listened to a lot. #
  • One sure sign of the mailbot-pocalypse: when the Rolex spam and the Viagra spam mate. #
  • I like listening to vinyl, especially when all I'm listening to is the vinyl. #
  • Justin Amrhein tech-illos at @mrgallery as of 6/25: part Geof Darrow, part Tom Ormond, part D-L Alvarez, & all-consuming http://goo.gl/UgtPc #
  • The sculpture in my office is generative: the system (its form) yields countless poses. I will miss it when I return it to the artist. #
  • Choreography, politics & music blamed for Rite of Spring "riot." Comments in this post show how fast story gets muddled http://goo.gl/KyVSg #
  • The @gawker fake title for the new Transformers movie is splendid: Transfomers: Nothing but Noise and Light for Two Hours. #
  • Trying to listen to field recordings of wolves, but continuously mistake what's heard as my kid waking and crying from the crib #
  • the shrill bird outside / mellowed by computer fan / baby sleeps, for now #
  • Will do. RT @GuyBirkin: @disquiet I request future sound Tweets in haiku form, e.g. "Noon duet: / boiling carrots / and fridge hum". #
  • Noon duet for boiling carrots and fridge hum. #
  • Major congrats to Boon Design, which turns 18 today: http://bit.ly/lt5zoa (Boon has collaborated on several Disquiet projects.) @boondesign #
  • RIP, vocalist Carl Gardner (b. 1928) of the Coasters ("Yakety Yak," "Young Blood," "Searchin'") and, earlier, the Robins http://goo.gl/sCD7y #
  • RIP, grindcore vocalist Seth Putnam (b. 1968) http://t.co/AjpJQwf #
