Finally. After 6 years. I scanned in my paper on the ARC music notation system. That's African Rhythmic Conception, and it's used for notating polyrhythmic percussion loops.

Found something that I thought was typed in typing class in high school by my girlfriend at the time, Malia, but she claims not. I think this was the last year we had to type on typewriters before the class was replaced with "Keyboarding".

Anyway, you'll need to zoom in on this to read it, but it's pretty drugged out. I *have* been wondering what my purpose is, so check it out.

I found a poem in the closet. I wrote it with Pauls Toutonghi in high school. He is about to be a famous writer perhaps.

Here it is:

lately i stomp lightly

lying on the ground, diggin the breeze,
slipped inside out, streetlights through a window.

Butterfly net eyes, honeytear falling through,
stone offset above me.

Blink, blink, implode a smeared meadow,
and a quarter falling as I flip it.
St. Thomas with his glasses, later, much later,
took a golden negative, out came a butterfly.

Lit upon a lamppost, turned to me and said:

"Keep your eyes on the down, and the quarters in your head."

Rolled up into a caterpillar, breeze feels far gone
city flees the sun, dancing in the stonelight.

Time in a puckered garden
with stained-glass thoughts.

i found a beet today

After I left MusicMatch in 2002, but before I moved back to Seattle, when MP3.com was still owned by Vivendi/Universal, I consulted for them briefly on how they might get more subscriptions from artists to the Premium Artist Services. Part of my report was a vision of what I called the artist life cycle, a checklist of different services every artist probably needs at some point in their career. Three years later, I still don't see a comprehensive package in one place, although CDBaby and Apple have parts of it down.

This is more hypnotic than it sounds....a mix of forward and backward skating action, at different speeds, all in the same shot, set to the Beastie Boys. Whatever, just watch it, it's less than two minutes.

A series of odd events over the last week.
First, I received four money orders of $600 each, with no return address and no indication who they are from, made out to my name.
Second, I found out on the same day that two people named David died, both of whom I haven't seen since elementary school.
And today, when I was in the bank, I started endorsing a check while thinking about something else and I wrote "Dould" as the first word, and stopped. So I mixed my first and last name, right? But I sign my name absent-mindedly all the time and I have never, ever, ever, done that. What could it mean?

I'm in Sedona again...a magical mystical bubble. I'm here to study for finals. The dissonance is jarring, but still, it's more relaxing than the upper west side.
In other news, neural computing took a big step forward recently.

This video of a 3-year-old xylophone master is the cutest thing I've ever seen.
