Listen to IBM and James Murphy turn real-time US Open match data into live streaming music. #ibmsessions

G’morning… picnic time in the park. At the end of this street is a knife sharpener’s truck. There are two (that I know of) who cruise Brooklyn offering their services. They’re pretty expensive. #brooklyn #summer #sigh (at Prospect Park)

“ The writer who reviewed Together for Pitchfork wrote on Twitter recently that his lukewarm review was one of his greatest professional regrets. And I thought, “How often does that happen?” How often does that happen that somebody who wrote a lukewarm review of your record actually apologizes and says, “I think I was wrong”? That is a rare and precious flower, that one. ”


The New Pornographers’ Carl Newman: The Brill Bruisers Interview – Flavorwire

He’s talking about me. I wrote that review and regret it. This retrospective on the New Pornos catalog is both my penance and a labor of love.

But in this day and age we have the power to amend criticisms on the actual original documents. Which means that if one feels markedly different about an album now after considerable reflection than one did after listening to it a handful of times, one has the power to change it. Doesn’t one have the responsibility to request an amendment? And doesn’t the publication have a responsibility to grant that request? These documents will last as long as the Internet exists (maybe longer) and will be referenced many times over. Doesn’t one owe an accurate appraisal to the artists? And gosh darn it, doesn’t one owe it to oneself? And double gosh darn it, I can’t stand writing in the third-person gender-neutral singular.

Create A New Track In 30 Minutes Or Less With D16's LuSH-101 & You Could Win It!.



D16 Audio Software invites producers and DJs to create an original track using LuSH-101’s 30 minute demo. LuSH-101 is a multitimbral polyphonic synthesizer created from modules that can be found in many modern virtual synthesizers, all combined into a single compact and logically…

Fibonacci you crazy bastard….

As seen in the solar system (by no ridiculous coincidence), Venus orbits the Sun 8 times in the same period that Earth orbits the sun 13 times! Drawing a line between Earth & Venus every week results in a spectacular FIVE side symmetry!!

Lets bring up those Fibonacci numbers again: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34..

So if we imagine planets with Fibonacci orbits, do they create Fibonacci symmetries?!

You bet!! Depicted here is a:

  • 2 sided symmetry (5 orbits x 3 orbits)
  • 3 sided symmetry (8 orbits x 5 orbits)
  • sided symmetry (13 orbits x 8 orbits) - like Earth & Venus
  • sided symmetry (21 orbits x 13 orbits)

I wonder if relationships like this exist somewhere in the universe….

Bunker Spreckels, taken by legendary photographer Art Brewer. Brewer has a retrospective opening this week at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan that I cannot wait to go to. My buddy Alex French spoke to Art recently about his more than 40 years of surf photography. What a life!

Yes, I’m re blogging myself, but I forgot how great this photo is.
