“We can express our feelings regarding the world around us either by poetic or by descriptive means,” Tarkovsky explained in an 1983 interview, “I prefer to express myself metaphorically…” Some of Tarkovskys polaroids here – I have a copy of this great book: Instant Light: Tarkovsky Polaroids



> so whats your NAMM/GAS favourite? So far mine would be Arturias Beatstep – primarily for use with modular synth via its cv/gate support… & its super affordable!


> The secret sounds of trees


> birds sleep? I thought they were like meth addicts, grab a nap once a week or so…. #wrong – not sure they mention it in that article but swifts sleep while flying! now THAT!! wow! if there is reincarnation, can I please come back as a swift… (wonder if they ever have that dream of falling?)




>a translator we all need: “Literally” becomes “Figuratively” & “Will Blow Your Mind” becomes “Might Perhaps Mildly Entertain You For a Moment” & “One Weird Trick” becomes “One Piece of Completely Anecdotal Horseshit” – Downworthy plugin for Chrome

> I read this ironic headline recently somewhere, but can’t remember where… or now, find the link… but a search did lead me to the fact that its a hoax…. but best of all, it made me remember & crank up the vinyl of this tune:

& while digging through some of my vinyl to find it, I also cranked up African Head Charge – Environmental Studies (iTunes link) – wow, what a fantastic record – its as vivid & weird & mysterious & unknowable now as it was when I first heard it back in the 1980s… I can clearly remember where I was & who turned me on to this, back in the day…
(thanks Duncan (rip) & Sean)


> “some analysis is better than no analysis” – whats that saying? there is no freedom without dissent…. “If I defected at all,” Snowden said, “I defected from the government to the public.”
