  • Accidentally listening simultaneously to Slum Village instrumentals and Drone Wallah (aka C.P. McDill). Not a bad combo. #

  • All software licenses should include — perhaps be required to include — an option to save the document as a text file. #
  • Been reading coverage of Neal Stephenson's @Official_GDC Q&A. The word "music" was in the title. Anyone explain what he said about music? #

  • Per Joseph Lanza's Elevator Music, Roger Williams' "Autumn Leaves" arpeggios had to do with him thinking title to be "Falling Leaves." #
  • RIP, pop pianist Roger Williams (b. 1924), whose solo instrumental "Autumn Leaves" once topped the U.S. charts. #

  • A USB Thumbdrive History of Iniquity #opensourceborges #
