Must Be Tuesday

Not on the Same Page

This song was written from my mom’s point of view about her online dating adventures. It’s her “perk” for supporting the fundraiser for my album, Cover Me I’m Going In, on Indiegogo last year. The album is available right now on iTunes!

(OMG That thumbnail picture is the greatest thing LOL. Nice choice, YouTube!)

—Netflix would be by far the best dating site. “Here are 9 other singles in your area who have also watched Breaking Bad for 12 straight hours”

Roger Rabbits special effects still fucking hold up by todays standards AND looks better than most films that come out NOW it was that ahead of its time

I’m still amazed that Hoskins had that little to work with. Everything about this video is awesome.

This made my day.

OMG This is so awesome. LOL The part where a guy is pulling on his cheek. I never really thought about the details of how all this was done before! 

Must Be Tuesday - God of Storms -ChucK experiment
18 plays

I’ve been experimenting today with ChucK, which is a music programming language. (!!) I didn’t even know there WAS such a thing until the other day! This is basically right up my alley, as I get to geek out over music and coding at the same time.

So far I’ve gotten it to do the loop above (a small section of the song God of Storms, which a few people have heard but which I haven’t recorded yet). This loop is made up of three different files, each one playing a different sequence of notes (a melody, a harmony, and a bass line).

I made a special scale for it, which is like a D minor scale but includes both C and C#, as I haven’t found another way to do accidentals in ChucK yet. I’m sure I’ll learn more as I go along! (Like how to do different note lengths!)

So much fun!

“When Kathleen Andrews became Edmonton’s first female bus driver in 1975, there were no female bathrooms in the bus depots and no radios on any of the buses.
So Andrews carried a dime in her pocket for emergency calls in phone booths, used the male manager’s private bathroom and picked up the tradition of waving to other passing bus drivers as a signal she was safe.
She faced drunken louts trying to pick her up, male colleagues who questioned her ability to drive and passengers who refused to get onto her bus because she was a woman driver. But Andrews stuck it out behind the steering wheel for three years before moving up the ranks, becoming a pioneer at Edmonton Transit Services while working to bring in a stable income for her two children.”

someone played an lcd soundsystem song over a miles davis trumpet solo and i think i feel alive for the first time in my life

There’s a slightly awkward bit where the trumpet playing ends and there’s some dialog, and the person skips around in the video to find more trumpet playing, but that actually adds to the sense that this wasn’t rehearsed in advance and when it fits together it just kind of happens by magic. :D

A bit of a follow-up to the petition we reblogged awhile back. It got all of the needed signatures, and quite a few days before the deadline! 

YAY! :D
