  • While I was trying a chord progression on my ukulele my 21-month-old again said “noise.” The tone was approving. #
  • My 21-month-old said “noise” after playing with a zipper. Father’s Day arrived early this year. #
  • 6pm bells, of which this tweet is a kind of echo. #
  • Pondering the sound design of Nikita: #
  • Hollywood improved its sequels by watching TV. Now it must make them faster. 5/2014 for Planet of the Apes? 7/2014 for X-Men: First Class? #
  • My extensive profile of painter Mel Ramos is in June/July @SactownMagazine. Not online (yet) but brief mention here: #

  • OK, is back up. Fiddling with some templating issues, but otherwise all is well. #
  • Thanks for the alerts. Apparently is coming up blank at the moment. Will sort it out. #
  • Came across Christian Marclay’s Sound Holes. I knew my “Not a speaker” series felt familiar; now I know why. Scroll down:… #
  • This Denver, Colorado, Disquiet Junto concert is August is coming together. More details as it approaches. #
  • Not a speaker. (Grate in sidewalk.) #
  • Would the incessant term-limit robocallers at least implement some sonic ingenuity, like having all the homes on our block ring at once? #
  • The 22nd @djunto project has been announced to the group’s membership via email and at The theme is “sonic decay.” #
  • Skype deserves the Nobel Peace Prize. #
  • My kid is 21 months old today. Just amazing, amazing. #
  • Download codes that arrive with the physical album rather than fill the temporal gap during shipping seem to miss the point. #
  • RIP, Pete Cosey (b. 1943), guitarist with Miles Davis (Dark Magus), Herbie Hancock (Future Shock), Muddy Waters (Electric Mud). #
  • Sonic decay:. About 24 hours until the start of the 22nd weekly Disquiet Junto project. The theme is the degradation of a recording. #
  • I’d read gripes, but Air Display is ready for prime time. Using now on iPad 2 and Macbook Air. #
  • The OS X desktop-icon invisible-raygun app has, in its latest version, rid itself of momentary icon appearance: #
  • Good discussion going on about how to improve upon the Groups implementation on @SoundCloud: #
  • Low-rent Blade Runner moment when two pigeons flew up from the back porch after I flicked a dead fly off the windowsill. #
  • It’d be nice if some Appalachian Sound Archives Fellowship Recipients focused on the environment beyond rural music: #
  • Like a roux. RT @primusluta: The plot thickens. RT @disquiet: Plotting with @primusluta. #
  • Plotting with @primusluta. #
  • Dear Trudy Campbell: Your husband Pete’s real love affair isn’t with Manhattan. It’s with his stereo system. #
  • The purpose for me of the Disquiet Junto is to create a place where people feel comfortable failing. #
  • House’s latest noisemaker. Gift to our (nearly) 21-month-old from Auntie. #
  • Had most of the house’s windows open in time for the Tuesday noon siren. It was quadrophonic-tastic. #
  • The next Disquiet Junto project will deal with either 3D sound or sonic decay. Still sorting out details. #
  • This photo is like a @benkatchor comic come to life (look at the gait of the men in the upper left), as is the story: #
  • Street sounds. #
  • Not a speaker. (Detail of Mark di Suervo sculpture on SFMoMA roof.) #
  • Have had little difficulty convincing my 21-month-old that the SFMoMA sculpture garden is a “park.” #
  • Intense fireworks. Can’t see them. Sure can hear them. Happy 75th, Golden Gate Bridge. #
  • Do many OS X Lion users actually employ Launchpad frequently? #
  • Unboxing video (no, I didn’t make it) for the Amon Tobin box set (yes I purchased it): #
  • Perfect sound forever. #
  • “If you meet the Buddha lawn ornament on the sidewalk.” #
  • Saw Cabin in the Woods. Thoroughly dug it. Knew ending in advance. Am all the more convinced that spoiler anxiety is a form of moral panic. #
  • ”¦ says the guy writing a blog post about the season-ending episode of Nikita. #
  • If my glasses were just a little stronger I’d know if this guy near me in the cafe is writing a space opera or Buffy fan fiction. Or both. #
  • I’d mispoken (mistweeted?). Our house will be 90 in two years, not 100. #
