I suck at keeping up with sci-fi club. I'll try to post an update Friday, but I still haven't even found a source for this week's reading, let alone read it.

How about next week we do something easy like Netflix or Hulu or something?

I need a chart that cross-references this with tolerance to 1) no sun 2) no water 3) cat piss

Maybe from Crab People

I've been on a thundercat kick for a while. Good stuff.

My SO had her musical tastes partially forged by the musical breaks on Adult Swim, so for VD, while on my recording kick, I tried to make a track on that style. It has a sample with a noise our cat makes

This one is a pretty odd story to me. For one, it's more of a description than a story. On top of that, it appears entirely devoted to parable with no flesh on the bones to fill-out the world and make it believeable. I feel like I'm missing something with this one, really.

I've got a technical question about the sidechaining then. I'm using Reaper, and when I use the kick as the auxiliary input for another track's compressor, Reaper will register clipping in the auxiliary levels if I turn that track up. So my question is... does it matter? I've realized I can get rid of the clipping flag by turning down the auxiliary input gain then bumping up the compression ratio to maintain the same amount of compression as previously, but it's a bit of a PITA. Either way it's clipping on a sound that isn't heard, so what's the downside of leaving it to clip as it pleases?

I'm messing around with that now. It's certainly having a more pronounced effect that way.

I'm packing fused silica emitters with 5 micron beads.


And holy crap it takes a long time. I tried some with a 150 micron internal diameter last week and those were no sweat. Then 50 microns, and that took hours to get less-than-desired amounts of packing. Today I'm packing 25 micron internal diameter capillaries. I can barely even see if it's working, and I might be doing this all day.

This band. Black Moth Super Rainbow.

You can definitely feel the effect when you make something from nothing, so a smaller effect from assembling some Ikea crap makes sense.

I actually just got that yesterday. I have an area dedicated for mancave status, but the area is almost totally devoid of furniture sooo....

I went out and got me a project desk. I checked it out on the store floor, thought it was a bit flimsy, but I got it anyways because I can't stand having crap piled on the floor anymore.

After building it and filling it with manly shit, I'm not so put off by its shortcomings anymore.

But I totally feel kleinbl00, Ikea gets old once you find out that it's virtually impossible to snap that one metal hinge to that plastic thing without breaking it. The desk still works somehow though.


Also: whaaaat? This is pretty similar stuff to what I do now.
