Creative mutations… and squinting drunky?

creativity, music, technology, rantings..

My poor neglected blog

There’s my silly new avatar. Gravatar, rather? Yay. Weird.

I have too many social networking commitments out there. But they’re finding their place. Sadly, this particular little armpit of my interests isn’t really getting much attention, but I never really intended it to be that way anyway.

Let’s see: Here I randomly post things, that have little to do with me or what I do, but sometimes happen to be. There are known knowns, and unknown unknown knowns… etc

Then there’s my Tumblr. Which seems like an unnecessary blog meets twitter thing, but I like it because I just have to click an applet to post things. No copy + paste for Twitter. That works.

Next, my Kontainer. This is mostly semi-personal, in-motion type of content that I’ll just post randomly. Pictures/videos from places. Jesus could I be any more nondescript about it? Yea it’s a cool idea though, and I hope to do more of it. It’ll basically be all the video stuff I don’t want to dirty my precious YouTube channel with, since it’s so goddamned cherished.

Of course: my Twitter. Even more random. But connecting the world through opinions, articles and redundant posts from the other sites you already follow me on. THAT YOU ALREADY FOLLOW ME ON.

YouTube.

The Play Zappa YouTube Project (still a zygote)

My ever present Facebook page. This you need to ‘liiiike’, as I’m pretty consistent over there. I haven’t really made an effort to funnel people there yet, but… it exists. And it’s basically the hairy drain that aggregates all the rest of this. OK, not really. Just my music/creative mutation stuff. But don’t friend my personal FB page, I hate ignoring requests and feel a touch douchey but I keep that to just people I know now within a personal or professional capacity. “It’s not you, it’s me…

Reverb nation: here. I will keep this updated. Along with SoundCloud… which is not updated at present. I, of course, have an atrophied Myspace page, but you know what? I’m not ready to let go. It’s just not updated.

Whew. Feels good to get that off my chest.

In other news, the good sir Mr. Chris Stambaugh has informed me that my bridge has came in:

Very good. Progress is earned through painfully persistant patience.

What else… yes. I haven’t done an 8-Bit remix in a while. I fear that I’ll begin to start bleeding subscribers soon. No, not yet. I have ATTN #5 about 67% there. Along with a few others. They’ll start dropping once I begin uploading bass videos again. Or not. We’ll see.

Oh sweet Netflix. What wondrously depressing documentary on how the US is fucking the world do you have for my viewing pleasure this evening? The Age of Stupid? Very good.

Bye.

Thom Yorke vs Hard Drive Array (via What Turtle Blood Tastes Like)

Thom Yorke vs Hard Drive Array Wow. This is bizarre. Who'd have thought an array of old hard drives serving as a speaker could so closely imitate the unique sound of Thom Yorke's voice? And personally i've never quite understood people who find the sound of a dot matrix printer grating, i t … Read More

New Arsenic-based lifeform?

Extremophilesphoto © 2010 Steve Jurvetson | more info (via: Wylio)


So at 2 PM today, NASA is supposed to announce some major finding related to Astrobiology. Pretty neat. Arsenic-based life, as I’ve gathered: http://gizmodo.com/5704158/nasa-finds-new-life

Should be interesting. It’s strangely humorous to see news-worthy events like this go under the immediate radar. Infotainment first; information … usually later. After DWTS.

Elsewhere in the above article, it mentions “the possibility of finding beings in other planets that don’t have to be like planet Earth” – no shit sherlock. I reckon we don’t have the cutting edge in technology either. It’s this oddly fundamentalist geocentrism that drives me crazy (no dig at the above quoted author, specifically). I just can’t stand listening to people argue against the idea of UFOs/ETVs/extraterrestrials with the logic of linear space travel. “Well – this is all we know about physics and technology, so it’s PROBABLY likely that other civilizations would face the same constraints with respect to space travel”.. but I digress…

I hope I can see this conference. We don’t have cable… just the limp old internet. Maybe there will be a live feed

Fresh from the NASA online press release from November 29th:

NASA Sets News Conference on Astrobiology Discovery; Science Journal Has Embargoed Details Until 2 p.m. EST On Dec.
