Hey I really like it

Thots:
I’ll need 8-10 mixes of this on a cd-r I can play in my
car and around the house and
All track lengths need to be 4:04 or multiples of that
because I was born at 0404am.

Flattered,
recycle

octothad

so it actually took a while for my ability to play the
microfreak to come back. it's like trying to play a
spiderweb like a harp. but if you can get ahold of it...

and 8-10 mixes, octothad, do the math. but one i was tired
and it was crap. two i was warming up and it was crap. 2-3
from the other night, probably actually should re-listen, i
remember they were simpler but much tighter. then i just
recorded the percussion running by itself so i can use it as
scratching material later. what i really want back is the
great take i got for thad #6 only to find the track was
unarmed

but this one, yes, much better. but maybe i have a better
one in me we'll see

so i have had to do some things that involve leaving the
phone on speaker, on hold, grainy waiting music, the same
45s loop forever

and i was messing around with my sampler just now, and i was
like: I HAVE THE BEST WORST ON-HOLD MUSIC EVER

LAZY_TITLE

the drums don't truly start to loop until just before the
fade, but... it doesn't matter. just like your call. your
call is not important. stew in this purgatory

which email? and to what end?

that i have 90% stopped using email entirely and my life
feels better that way. i do feel bad that i've probably
missed all sorts of personal messages, but i feel like my
life is my own and i have the bubble i need to go off and
get properly deep on whatever. that if anything is really
important, that means it's important to somewhere where i am
regularly, or they will call me or slack me or make a thread
or something

it's not "no," more like "...just don't expect me to read
emails in a timely manner"

and i'd recommend the same for everyone else on planet
earth.

i always like -- this take has this good bit, that take has
that good bid, oh, can't i just get it all in one take? and
i did try. but we have a heatwave and all my gear is up in
the attic and it'll all be out of tune if i leave it on into
tomorrow anyways... and

thx. i think octothad was pretty good in retrospect. then i
even came back and got some quality goofs.

the ms-1 has been a godsend, but, fuck's sake, can't
behringer even publish a cheat sheet for the combo moves?
like, i have to go to this guy's youtube video every time to
remember how to save a pattern. because usually i just say
fuck it and switch all the gear off after i've gotten it
down well enough

Umberto Eco said something like, "I have reached the point
in life where my purpose is no longer to receive messages,"
and I thought that was quite egotistical. I still do. But
I'll give him some leeway if we treat it as a crabby,
insensitive response to the issue that we all have a limited
attention bandwidth and email is a huge waste there

part of the reason i like this board is because it's so
focused. like, i skim analogue haven mailing list even
still, but here... i know what i'm going to get.

when someone asks you to send an email is this how you
respond really or are you just trolling us

he said "email me at my email thing" and i don't have his
email thing, i avoid email now unless absolutely necessary
-- nothing personal, just to protect my ability to
concentrate -- and he hasn't said what it is regarding,
either. he could validly say "i don't want to say in public
on here" and provide his "email thing" and ok i'll say
hullo. but then be warned i won't check the inbox often --
nothing personal, just to protect my ability to
concentrate.

but, really, what i would like to say is this: i'm thinking
of my kind of kill bill, wiggle your big toe moment with the
microfreak. and after hours of grinding on it, even with
sleep in between... i think of the notes, and i can see them
in my head like flash cards. and what's weird is they have a
very particular spot, the flash cards appear, like...
bottom-rightish of my internal visual field, which is where
i currently have the microfreak set up.

that it is about, essentially, stretching your
neuroplasticity across the current setup, so it becomes like
an arm; you don't think you just move it. learning to adapt
and stretch into different setups is actually a skill that i
believe anyone can work on and develop.

however, the speed with which i managed to beat those
microfreak muscle memory parameters into myself, that's why
i'm writing this. that, yes, this is a skill, actually, huh.

I'll be honest, I've given up on email. I just check into
Gmail to see how many I haven't read.

I would have texted the troll
But didn’t see his email listed in his profile
Just wanted to get some tunes and talk

Blah blah blah
Have fun with your East coast walks, I guess….

i dunno. i haven't been around here as much recently, right?
it's nothing to do with this place. i literally had four
people text me with crap like "since it's the weekend and
you have time can you do this" and literally all four can
fuck off since i'm already full booked. then even that, i
threw a lot of it under the bus to work on music -- and i
may regret this, but i needed to for my fucking sanity.

you were the only one who replied to cheboygan spam and with
all the threds seems like you needed some cheering up, so i
thot: i need to record some music, i think i'll do a thad
schema

and i'm glad you like it. that's all i really wanted -- to
make some music for my sanity; to have you like it.

then i'm being frank about my complete lack of ability to
read/reply to email and suddenly it's an east coast elitist
thing and i don't even know where you live ok

so please calm down.
