- when i said i quit, i meant it
- i have not signed on once since. not even a peek. i
deleted it
- if i was talking about EQ on 128kbps mp3s i was talking
about trying to salvage something 15 years old that i can't
re-export without a winXP machine

He’s not wrong, we like you a lot but it’s like the
fruit flies that won’t go away. Have a good day.

mermaidman, 4u. the 128kbps fing

if you'll bear with me for a moment -- i find my memory is
tied to sense of place, e.g. where i physically was when the
memory happened. like it's an anchor of sorts. always there,
like a background hum. when it comes to something like
discord, well, go figure, my brain goes: it was discord, in
my office. with russel and indeks. it was a strange angle
and... nm, that's enough.

you were talking about me talking about EQ and 128kb and i
got a flash of place, i must admit. i thot: shit, that means
there very well could be an actual memory attached to this,
and, well, no, i don't export 128kb ever, but... ugh, there
was something? maybe?

it goes off kind of like a flashbulb: discord, studio, but
it's mostly overwhelmed by my mixer and

can't hang on

and i have it now. sort of. for no reason at all -- my brain
says: here, it's solved. and

it feels vaguely like i was mad at soundcloud and how
everything is 128kbps online and i'd have said something
like "if i have to live with this i want to understand
better what it's doing to my track so i'm messing with the
EQ on the 128kbps. i could be bodging details, but this was
the gist of it

so this was a real thing, you were not making it up.
confirmed. at the time i was not sure it was a real thing,
because it was too hard to pull back, and because it was not
something i would do. we were both wrong and right. think on
the implications of that sir

I'm not much of a discord guy either

but when xlt was down I had some enjoyable chats with
recycle and hyperflake on there. chatting directly seems to
humanize someone rather quickly.

moimaid mane is even pretty normal on there. fleetmouse has
a biting, sarcastic way with words that is more conducive to
that environment as well.

Enjoyed and will stop by again when not mired in finishing
so many video games

P.S. hot take: 128kps is noticeably worse for shizzle, but
not so bad as to ruin a track. If you didn't check the
bitrate you probably wouldn't even care.

recycle you were so quick on the fruit fly anecdote that now
I'm almost certain you have a genuine fruit fly problem.
Seal up your food real nice, and I hope you get through

i don't remember you mentioning soundcloud compression but
even if you were "messing with the EQ on the 128kbps" you eq
before the compression not after it

different kinds. There was even a some that were homo 🪰,
not joking 🙃

mostly what i'm interested in is how whatever mermaidman
thinks went down on there (2 years ago?) fired off in my
brain. like a sonar ping briefly illuminating the
surrounding memory landscape before going dark and leaving
me to try and untangle the details.

this morning, i find myself admiring the work of
courtroom sketch artists. how they've so little time to get it
down and you wind up with something that's actually so
incredibly like the aforementioned memory. what you're
paying attention to is in color -- and everything else
gradually bleeds off into sketchy lines and then emptiness

the artist of that drawing is clearly of the skool where
it's like "i try to make everyone i draw look good" because
trump looks 40 years younger and less fat

while i roll my eyes at drawing trump kindly [even if it's
because you draw everyone kindly] i still freaking admire
the heck out of this skill. i imagine it must be the same
rush i get out of recording a track -- just this manic rush,
like "quick quick QUICK switch crey-pas color" and then a
few minutes later you're pouring sweat and your art supplies
are strewn all over in an exploded cloud and you have it
down as in image and you're like *exhaling after sex*

my memory also includes a sort of perspective distortion
where my mixer was stretched all about in a blobby manner
and taking over most of the image, not just the color. which
is how i remember things when my mixer has most of my

it's actually very non-euclidean kinda thing
