Its been two whole days since I checked out the awesome but gross art at Silent Barn with Jared. I can't get these images out of my head. I took cell phone pics but they don't do it justice. The artist's name is Nate Hill. The picture here is from his website. Blehgh.

I'm wondering if I need to post a unicorn chaser on my blog now.

Joanna Newsom's Clam, Crab, Cockle, Cowrie keeps popping up in surprising places. A few months ago, I was watching Great World of Sound, a great movie about a guy trying his damnedest not to become a sleazy music talent scout.

In one scene near the end of the movie, a woman sings an awesome rendition of Newsom's tune that made my throat lumpy. (But the best song in the movie is actually this one...)

The second spotting of Clam, Crab, Cockle, Cowrie comes from an HSBC Bank ad that I saw linked to on Boing Boing today. That shit's killer.

On Sunday, Biana, Alex, and I went hiking around Lake Askoti in Harriman State Park. Biana perfectly captured the peaceful sounds of autumn on my Flip Video. Watch and listen.

I don't fly often enough to be able to listen to Music for Airports in its proper setting. I hereby request Brian Eno produce the following albums for the spaces that I occupy daily:

  • Music for Bedroom With No Window
  • Music for Giant Grassy Fields Where I Walk My Dog Every Morning (Even Though The Signs Say "No Dogs Allowed")
  • Music for Energetic Startup Office
  • Music for Supermarket in Rapidly Gentrifying Neighborhood

Can you think of anything else I should request Eno compose? ;)

Holy fuck, watch this... It make me want to travel back in time and have Bjork for my kindergarten teacher. I want her to teach me about television and about life, and about how I shouldn't trust poets.

Also, listen to these Ugandan kids sing Bjork's All is Full of Love. Equally beautiful.

Today my friend Adam L. taught me some sort of bastard variation of Dice 10,000 and Cosmic Wimpout. Four of us sat around a table at Last Exit rolling dice, drinking beer, and saying numbers.

Oh crappy crap. A week has slipped by since I last posted. Forgive me for my blog-silence. In brief:

I caught a nasty ass cold. (I think I'm finally over it.)

I got a new bike built using a frame that Liam gave me and a wheel that Mark gave me. (It was put together by Katie at Velo Brooklyn. Its awesome. I'll post pictures soon.)

I worked my brains off on Musebin. (Greg found this little bit of code that I wrote particularly amusing. It turns censored albums names back into fully uncensored names.)

I watched two thugs knock a Chinese food delivery guy off of his bike and run off with the food. (What the fuck, Bushwick?)

I slept, ate, hung out, and did normal life-ish things.

I like flashlights, especially when they can turn into little creatures that play piano. This video is awesome. For more pretty looking things made with flashlights (and LEDs, sparklers, burning embers, etc.) check this out.

To the awesome graffiti artists and mural makers in Bushwick: Keep up the good work.

I especially this new piece that popped up on Central Ave. I walk by it almost every day. Its awesome. This weekend was the first time I crossed the street to see it up-close. I like all the little details.

I don't know if you guys take requests or anything, but if you wanted to make something like this near the Dekalb L station, I would love you even more.
