twitter.com/disquiet: Sonic Thump, Bibimbap Sizzle

From the past week

I do this manually each Saturday, collating recent tweets I made at twitter.com/disquiet, my public notebook. Some tweets pop up (in expanded form or otherwise) on Disquiet.com sooner. It’s personally informative to revisit the previous week of thinking out loud.

▰ Replacing the sonic boom with a “sonic thump,” a new supersonic airplane gets even more streamlined. NASA is due to begin “acoustic validation” tests in two years: cnet.com.

▰ I love the sound of the city digging up the neighbor’s sidewalk with something aggressively pneumatic this early in the morning. It sounds like infrastructure.

▰ Tried to record the sizzle of the bibimbap at lunch, but too much chatter. And that’s OK. Chatter is itself a nice return to reality.

▰ I wonder if the neighbor yelling at the city employee working on the other neighbor’s sidewalk is aware the yelling is in many ways just as disturbing if not more so in the morning.

▰ Have a good weekend, folks. At this rate I’ll have 4,000 photos to cull through by Monday. And I haven’t even started shooting at night yet. Perhaps I’ll have written that many words by then, too.
