9781623568900 is the ISBN number of the book due out February 13, 2014, that I wrote about Aphex Twin’s 1994 album Selected Ambient Works Volume II for the 33 1/3 series. It also feels like the number of days since I posted regularly at Disquiet.com, but I am slowly digging myself out of post-book exhaustion and gearing up to get back at it. Also gearing up for next-book planning, a key part of which is factoring in a diminished exhaustion component. Here’s another number: the book with be the 90th in the 33 1/3 series.

    Looking forward to purchasing this. I’ve been re-listening to Selected Ambient Works Vol. II from time to time to prepare.

      Yeah, I saw that. Thanks. I think when it comes to lucid dreaming, this may fall into the trap that thinks someone can’t explore something and also poke jokes at it. Sometimes, for example, people laugh about things that embarrass them, or that scare them.

    i’m sure you’ve done this before, but just in case you haven’t:

    get two stereos and play both discs of saw2 at the same time.

      Thanks. Yeah, as the mid-copyedit draft stands, there is a bit in there about that listening experience.
