Pinned toot

I finally got around to finding a new home for my dream journal: @montagsdreams

There are no new dreams there yet, but hopefully I'll have a few in the next couple days that I can actually remember.

I just launched a new art project in the form of a Mastodon bot that will slowly tell a story over the course of three weeks by posting a drawing every day. You can follow it at @dailystory

The bot post the first image on Monday April 12 and post a new image everyday at 6 pm UTC (as long as nothing breaks).

I hope you all enjoy it.

I should get a chord organ. They sound really nice.

Slowly learning to use a toothbrush on guitar and getting used to the fretboard layout.

cryptid talk 

One thing I like about bands like Cap'n Jazz and The Brave Little Abacus is that they've got a good amount of yelling but it's not really angry or aggressive yelling, it's just kind of yelling to be loud and sometimes that's what I need. It's a calming kind of yelling.

After getting my Weatherday hat I kind of want to get more hats. I'm not sure yet what hats I want to get though.

I finally bought a mattress topper and oh my god why didn't I get one of these earlier? My bed is so soft and comfy now.

I just watched the original "Hana and Alice" (I'd watched the prequel before and really liked it) and it's a really interesting film. It definitely tells a story, but it doesn't feel like it's really in any rush to tell it and the further along it goes the less important the central plot feels. The whole thing feels like the director saying "let me show you this" while presenting you with a beautiful moment, followed by another and another. And honestly it works (at least in my opinion).

I feel like color is sort of like the Voynich Manuscript where I can't help falling down a rabbit hole about it every few months and I learn a lot of new things, but I never really feel like I'm any closer to deciphering the whole thing. Color is really complicated and so much of what people teach about is just not true, so it's really hard to get a real foothold on how it all works.

I've been reading a lot about how color terms differ between languages and how that effects people's ability to differentiate and remember colors based on what language they speak. It kind of makes me want to create a constructed language that's only used to express color terms and see if it affects how I think about and see color.

Electric toothbrushes make a lot more electromagnetic noise than I expected.

Yep, I am very much cozy

You ever just want to press your own doorbell?

Making Halloween-worthy sounds today.

(Playing around with my guitar, a loop pedal, and some dental floss)

Look at me learning math. I finally sort of understand a little better what a Fourier transform is.

Maybe I should rewrite the audio programming language I made a while ago so it's in C (and it can maybe finally run in real-time on reasonable hardware).
