  • By day, buses rattle past. By night, when they stop for passengers, the beepy dis/embark melody sounds like a Japanese train station. #
  • Weirdly frequent (and presumably DNS-related) issues accessing various websites this evening. #
  • Starting to find A/B stories on TV just as claustrophobia-inducing as verse/chorus/verse structure in songs. But at least TV has story arcs. #
  • Entirely caught up with email. Zero inbox. Victory! … Er, for 2011. … As for 2010, that's a major backlog. … #
  • Wishing a speedy recovery for Adam Yauch. #

  • Noon bells pierce the cold, and the closed windows. #
  • Relieved to learn, first hand, that the "version history" in @simplenoteapp works smoothly and effectively. #
  • That's pretty cool, 250-plus plays of my Unsilent Night field recording @soundcloud #surveillance #fluxus #
  • Evening sounds: traffic bleeds into hard-drive whir bleeds into general appliance hum bleeds into light tinnitus. #
  • [email protected] Yeah, you know, the second I wrote to you, I started wondering what the mail-art of email is. Spam is like Ballardian email-art. #
  • Just heard "da da" for first time. Sure, just random syllables by four-month-old, but still something. #
  • ♫ Afternoon analog-synth audiostream: Keith Fullerton Whitman live at the Bunker (2010.11.05), cascading-tastic: #
  • Best recent song title: Derrick Hart's "0073735963" (the code to get to Tyson on the NES game Mike Tyson's Punch Out). #

  • Pool scenes in recent CSI: Miami ("Match Made in Hell") resembled early Bill Viola video. Yesterday's avant-garde, today's Hollywood effect. #
  • Before designing the new Broad museum in downtown Los Angeles, Diller + Scofidio did this great mesh of corporate logos: #
  • Very emperor's-new-clothes, these touch tablets/phones. Tech writers describe each like fashion writers do the latest little black dresses. #
