Past Week at

  • Gotta love form-emails from music publicists that start, "Dear ," #
  • Twitter apps of the stars: @ryuichisakamoto uses @echofon, @chris_carter_ @tweetie, @shocklee @hootsuite, @kronosquartet the web interface. #
  • The @facebook film is Fincher/Sorkin but feels like Soderbergh experiment. Anyhow, Reznor/Ross MP3 set just $2.99 #
  • Long before @twitter, book-reading as a form of ambient awareness for "forgetful majority" (by James Collins @nytimes) #
  • Anyone see a film called La Linea (The Line) with Ray Liotta? Looks a bit like Traffic. I may need to watch, if only for David Torn's score. #
  • #ff Some feeds that shouldn't have fewer "followers" than mine: @sfemf @gregdavis @mapmap @npseaver @mariplasma @soundscrapers @carlstone #
  • Turning your ashes into an LP puts the "forever" into "perfect sound forever," a true "vinyl resting place" #
  • "The Gentle Hum of Anxiety": a cue from @trent_reznor / Atticus Ross Facebook film score; 5 free MP3s via @brandonnn #
  • Sound-recycling Organ of Corti wins new-music prize. Congrats to liminal (composer David Prior & architect Frances Crow). #
  • Yes, dear, when I was your age, we did use that weird word "and" but we started to use the ampersand around 2009/2010 because it's shorter. #
  • Looxcie's "wearable camcorder" always-on earpiece (think Jawbone + video) makes me wanna reread Two-Step by @warrenellis in reply to warrenellis #
  • According to Matmos' myspace page, its page will be updated more regularly. Current post on Baltimore fest. #
  • Dancing with my two-week-old kid appears to put her to sleep. Who says music is without functional value? #
  • Based on "Hamburg Hotel" off the new Underworld, will be listening to a lot more Appleblim and Al Tourettes. #
  • Silent-car plot device. Last night on Sons of Anarchy, comment after fugitive is hit by car: "Damn hybrids! Dangerous!" #
  • Name drop of Underworld on Covert Affairs, so close to the release of Barking. Someone's got good timing. #
  • Tuesday noon air-raid/emergency-alert alarm in San Francisco almost always triggers Cold War flashback, kindles desire for tinned-meat lunch #
  • Continuously misreading "drone war" stories as being extensions of Steve Goodman's Sonic Warfare. #
  • Seeking first soundscape @alexismadrigal notes primacy of visual: "Decades when we can see our places, but not hear them" #
  • The incremental rewinds inherent in transcribing an interview always make the process sound like a Scott Johnson composition. #
  • ICV2 on digital sales/piracy's role in comics (vs. music). Argues comics, in essence, too small to not grow Seems wishful #
  • Two time-honored staccato traditions (blippy modular synths, jittery time-lapse photography) yoked by @robotdancerobot #
  • I second this: RT @pheezy I'd love a bookmarklet [to] highlight date/time on a page & it's added to calendar w/ url as description #lazyweb #
  • Feels like 90% of the emails from are about designer hoodies, but today brings two free MP3s — when the website isn't overrun. #
  • Afternoon chamber music: dishwasher, babbling baby, typing, hard drive, neighbor cleaning house, wind outside, occasional bird/plane/car. #
  • Bittersweet audio anecdote: an old reel-to-reel + the hope to hear a father's voice + a demo of the Norelco 100 recorder #
  • ♫ Afternoon tune: blood-in-the-ear drone + hot-jazz drums = a beat named "Cheat" by @rieces_pieces #
  • Misread this @nytimes headline today as being about music: "Some Ask if Ozawa Is the Force That Japan Needs" #
  • Maybe once in a while the foghorns could have a guest DJ? #
  • Remain convinced that the @aquariusrecords record-store emailer is one of the best music publications going. #
  • "Paying for free" differs from "it pays to be free": @bandcamp to charge for free downloads (over a threshold) via @vuzhmusic @hecanjog #
