I guess we need a separate for the whole extended GBV discography. Bee Thousand deserved better!

@alex one of my best ideas and most humbling moments of recent months was thinking to drape burp cloths over unused mixers

realizing I need to invest in some dust / cat hair removal solutions before I can start posting my budget synth pics to thegear.page @alex

@eyesack that was/is a substantial part of the appeal for me tbh, even if it exclusively covers how to interface it with a DX7 and I have zero intention to do that

Today I crossed a big looming project deadline's event horizon wherein procrastination makes once intractably unpleasant tasks newly possible. So far I have compiled and printed a bunch of Quebec tax stuff, booked summer travel, and given the cat her tick preventative.

the Reverb-vs-eBay markup on these guys is pretty wild right now, glad I held out a while

(now loaded up with a purportedly Eno-authored patch that I sysex'd over from Dexed)

this star wars lookin mf arrived yesterday and sounds so nice

@alex is this tweet using the montreal system where west = south by southwest, or the inferior rest-of-world system where west = west?

@ryan love the jarring combo of Designer-speak and super maximalist video production

finally living up to my bio on here

(I need to make a large number of exactly 1.5 second recordings for a project, so I think the approach is justified if still procrastinate-y)

going dawless aka using bash scripts and ffmpeg

@jonbro oh cool, any favorite presets or collections you recall using? planning to use dexed to interface with it.

once every 2 years I fix my sights on a hardware synth and spend 6 months working up the nerve to shell out roughly $200 for it

with today's ebay purchase of a yamaha tx7, the cycle has reset

I've set up a second hometown account over at @akstuhl where I plan to do more of my work-related posting. May do some gradual follow-reshuffling but anyone should feel free to follow both/either/neither


@smurph it sure is -- and a superior song by several orders of magnitude


@smurph incidentally both Dune and Petty are slated for discussion in my diss, thanks to arrakis-systems.com and en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Last respectively


@smurph incredible media artifact, wow! did they get Tom himself to record the statement? would be fascinated to learn what internal format war reasoning went into that decision.

@andy My sister got into running recently, so for her birthday I made her an mp3 mix of songs with "run" in the title.

When I got to Tom Petty's "Running Down a Dream" I was surprised to hear the track end with: "Hello CD listeners. We've come to the point in this album where those listening on cassette or record will have to stand up or sit down and turn over the record or tape. In fairness to those listeners we will now take a few seconds before we begin side two."
