Past Week at

  • Man, it's only Saturday and already 21 tracks imagining @textinstagram tweets as their cover images: ->
  • "This was the first time in nine years that 'Hit the Lights' was performed in Brisbane." The beautiful data of LiveMetallica downloads. ->
  • Hopeful that Spike Lee's Oldboy will be less a remake of the extravagant Oldboy movie and more an adaptation of the restrained Oldboy manga. ->
  • Sculpture at playground ->
  • I wrote about my affection for the new @Wayne_TheTrain album (on @BSHQ) for @csindependent: ->

  • The room was empty at the time. Now over 100 people have listened to the drone of my doctor's office: ->
  • Tomorrow is week 5 of my sound class. The subject is product design, from the crunch of potato chips to Facebook's new notification burp. ->
  • You'd think it'd be easier to have a single .txt file accessible through a click on the OS X (top) menu bar. Well, I would. ->
  • Almost missed the San Francisco Tuesday noon siren but UPS guy opened door to doctor's office just after it had begun. ->
  • If you're on academia dot edu, I'm at: ->
  • There are only 6 films tagged as "sound design" on @letterboxd ->
  • Bringing the Third Place to the First and Second Places: Very cool. Thanks, @mrdanielcarter + @colossal in reply to mrdanielcarter ->

  • Nearing-midnight sounds: rumble of clothes dryer, occasional automobile bounding over street temporarily lined with massive metal plates. ->

  • This week's @djunto will be music for/from sine waves. ->
  • Indeed. In this case, the waves will be recognizable as such. RT @nynexrepublic: @disquiet @djunto all music is made of sine waves! :) ->
  • Commitment is changing your default .txt editor. Just moved from TextEdit to Mou. ->
  • The 62nd @djunto project has begun at + and it's gone to the e-list. ->

  • There is a certain beauty to an ebook at night, the only light in the otherwise dark room, glowing text suspended in midair. ->

  • Music made from a trio of sine waves: Already 4 tracks in the latest @djunto project, #62. ->
  • Giving @ThisIsMyJam another go. I remain over there. ->
  • An open form letter to publicists (and to bands/coders/artists who serve as their own publicist): ->
  • As a longtime Richmond District resident I'm sad to learn that @haigsdelicacies' Clement Street store is closing. #hummus #muhamarra #dolmas ->
  • Apparently #muhamarra is a far less frequently used hashtag than either #hummus or #dolmas. ->
  • Finding more people on @vineapp to follow than @appdotnet. But I guess I'm less picky about visuals than conversation. I'm @disquiet on ADN. ->
  • Exploring the sonic potential of @vineapp: Featuring several loops by @MattCBarlow. #vrone ->
  • Gotta love a test-to-speech service that mispronounces "transliterate." ->
  • “I promise to take good care of you”is what I find myself saying when I install a ROM. Got my gen 1 Kindle Fire running Jelly Bean 4.2.2. ->
