Cyborg drummer, Jason Barnes, pushes the boundaries of what is humanly possible.  There is a great article on this over at arstechnica

This is a screen cap I took from the new Mavericks Maps app just prior to it fully rendering a portion of Manhattan in 3D mode.  To me it looks like a really cool watercolor painting.

Below is the same screen cap with a bit more color saturation, but no filters of any kind.

WHEN I GET OLD I SHALL EAT DESSERT FIRST!

When I get old I shall eat dessert first
And not give a care if my bubbles burst
Give flowers for no special reason
Never worry what to wear for each season

When I get old I shall not laugh at a joke to be polite
Or tell my children not to fight
I shall whistle in public because a tune’s on my mind
Never care if my pants are stuck in my behind

When I get old I shall always talk to a stranger
Even though I might be in danger
I shall look straight at the sun as it’s setting
Never fret if it’s a pitbull I’m petting

When I get old I shall not wear aids to hear
Just smile and nod and draw you in near
I shall walk as bent as I wish
Never ever care where I pish

- Lynn Emidia Lazzara

enjoy my latest release and let me know what you think.

I realize that this will soon change, but 666 followers is a milestone on soundcloud that should be celebrated.

Fun and creative video.  Even with all the criticisms iOS 7 is quite an improvement. I’ve been using it for about 3 months and really could never go back.

Listen to my new track “Sucker”.  Let me know what you think.

Paracosm - Washed Out
On first listen it is pretty, positive feeling and produced well. However, for all its shimmering, shifty, phased reverb big-ness, it does not feel as dreamy and “washed out” as earlier releases. 
The song, All Over Now, is pretty cool and feels a little Robin Guthrie, Elizabeth Fraser in a good way.
Listen to Paracosm now on iTunes.

Rotundo from Sega Fighting Master 1991.  

This name of this big blue guy has eluded me for years until reminded today because his name was mentioned inadvertently by someone trying to pronounce another name.  The rediscovery was personally cathartic. 

A Free AU, VST Plugin - DuckEQ
This is a pretty cool looking EQ plugin that sidechains and duck specific frequencies.

From Heel Audio:
Duck EQ is an Equaliser that reacts to a side chain input, or in other words a Ducker that can act on specific frequencies. However, it can also work as a normal Ducker, as well as an all-or-nothing dynamic EQ.
