  • Thanks, @citylightsbooks, for hosting the March 20 reading/concert in San Francisco for my Aphex Twin 33 1/3 book: ->
  • 2,991 tracks in Disquiet Junto in past 2 years and 2 weeks. Wonder if we'll hit 3K when current project ends tonite: ->
  • I'm interviewing Prefuse 73 in half an hour. If you have questions for him, lemme know. ->
  • Prefuse 73 says it refers to the sound of fusion jazz prior to 1973 (starting around 1968). RT @nynexrepublic: @disquiet why that number? ->
  • Judging by my Twitter page, staff got back from lunch and posted a redesign of the website, which it is now slowly tweaking in real time. ->
  • Helix: You come for the science fiction; you stay for the Arctic research-station room tones. ->
  • Still likes to think that the new version of WordPress is named after the Donald Westlake / Richard Stark character. ->

  • Hopeful that @SoundCloud technical issues are solved by tomorrow, but pondering stopgap @djunto options (e.g., Disquiet-post comment links). ->
  • I love my Nexus 7 but Google must get the accessories gears churning. There's nothing for the N7 close to Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Folio. ->
  • If you participate in the Disquiet Junto, try the SoundCloud URL ( ) and lemme know if it's coming up for you. Thanks. ->
  • If SoundCloud's tech issues continue tomorrow we may experiment with posting the next project as embeds/links in comments on a Disquiet post ->
  • Thanks for the quick replies folks. On my Mac the SoundCloud URL works OK on Safari, just not my default browser (Chrome). #patience ->
  • "This webpage has a redirect loop." Been getting major conflicts between Google accounts lately. ->
  • "It is an auditory 3-D sculpture." That description of pop-music recording isn't from Brian Eno. It's Sandra Boynton: ->

  • I vote they make 10 spinoffs of Arrow and rename the network the DCW. ->
  • Happy birthday, Benjamin Franklin. You weren't a model father, but I can't think of a founding father more relevant or inspiring today. ->
