August 21, 2001, 6:58 pm - Make like a chair and split
Posted by [Joyrex is a cunt]

Yesterday, um, my chair snapped in half and I was
reacquainted with the floor. That chair had tilted 45
degress backwards for the last time, having done so billions
of time over the previous year or so, during which the metal
got warped and consequently broke.

So I got a chair that doesn't lean back. Maybe this one will
thus last longer.

While out chair shopping, I got a copy of Further Down the
Spiral (the US version). It's okay. Mostly the original
songs are better, but Piggy (Nothing can stop me now), Hurt
(quiet), and Eraser (Polite) are very good, especially the
Piggy one.

I'm going over to someone's house saturday to fiddle with an
old synthesizer (Arp Odyssey) he has and talk music a bit...
I wonder if my minidisc off ubid (presuming I get it) will
have arrived then? I want to sample that thing...

I'm going to try to finish modifying the speak and read so I
can bring that over, too. It's having minor problems. While
drilling a hole through the front panel, the plastic but
that covers the screen and speaker snapped in half. Oops. I
say I bash it with a hammer, paint it, bash it some more,
and call it art. Works for the famous circuit benders.

So I finally got around to downloading some squarepusher.
Port Rhombus is quite beautiful, especially when staring out
at rain.

I sleep now... I wish I could leave music on out loud while
I sleep. Sleeping with headphones on is a pain. Damn the
fact that I don't live alone or with someone who can
tolerate mild noise...

i got the minidisc. i still have it. i have literally a
medium-large tub of minidiscs i should really finish ripping
someday. the guy with the arp odyssey, there was a
situation: he'd constructed a tube amp and here look at my
tube amp and suddenly he's freaking out saying "oh shit it's
waffling" and then "you need to turn it off" and then "why
me" and then "because i'm holding the guitar i'm grounded"
and then i'm all "fuck no you got yourself into this why
should i get involved" but eventually i just cringed and
reached out and shut it off and everything was fine. i still
have the bent speak and read, with the crack, the hot glue.
i don't remember that specific squarepusher listening
moment. the last part, actually, though, fuck yes; i have
this now. i think i might blast SAW II as i go to sleep
imminently

upon further thot this has a lot to do with why i refuse to
fuck around beyond +/- 24v and even that, why are we doing
this

reading shit i wrote from 20+ years ago is like reading 'The
Book of the Law'... its cringeworthy trash but i like to
think there's some kind of praeternatural thing going on.

what blogging site were you posting on in 2001, or was it
your own site?
and you then edited the username?

but actually i think this is a diary entry of when i first
heard squarepusher. it was raining and i thot it was cool. i
can't actually remember it, but archive.org has essentially
opened up access to it for everyone. like, i'm glad i left
myself a note here; but it's rather cool it's just kind of
up there in some god computer along with all sorts of other
stuff like that. like beowulf, this is how i will live
forever

I love archive.org but never thought about blogging. I'm too
introvert for that.

I uploaded both Ae/Sean AMA's to archive.org yesterday, just
fyi.

Yes, in mp4 format so I have a choice: watch or just listen.
