Soundmapping on Reddit

I submitted an idea for the new subreddit “Project Reddit,” asking participants to make a soundmap after listening somewhere for 10 minutes. It’s been… interesting so far. Better go check it out, eh?

Liveblogging! “ITDE” 9/3/11

September 3, 2011

This is a rather strange show… I’ve been around the block more than a few times as far as the whole “being sleepy and playing weird music” thing goes, but the disembodied, random Marilyn Monroe quotes are really quite bonkers. How is it that I hadn’t heard of Charlie Morrow prior to this XI Records release?

Anyways… I responded to a request for music review writers early yesterday, at Musique Machine. Things were going decently, until I discovered the guy wasn’t even willing to give me a link out as credit. I understand not paying writers, but really? Not even a little link love? Sheesh! On the up-side, now I’m thinking about doing reviews again. We’ll see how it goes.

Also– how many of my readers have checked out an episode of my daughter’s show, “Style City”? It’s something of a companion to “It’s Too Damn Early,” still bringing the weirdness, but with more of a focus on chiptunes and abstract electronica. If you haven’t heard it yet, watch this for the details:
