hey what's up dan & everybody? tell me has anyone seen the movie "oz the great and powerful" yet?
Avatar 9:35pm dk:

how is it that oren ambarchi manages to be simultaneously so absurdly prolific and so consistently awesome?

also, yay charlemagne palestine.

dan,,terrific start tonight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:37pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

A newspaper panned OZ - but was it you in efd show Comments this week said it was good? M.Kunis in black in 3D wouldn't be my worst evening ever...

...if the dude is in his Zone - stopping might mess him up ?
- In a doc, Phillip Glass (...bad paraphrase possible here...) explained creativity as like a subterranean river; you don't know where exactly but you do know it's flowing down there...

That's why it is so important to wear loose shorts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...the subterranean river or Mila Kunis?...
Avatar 9:44pm dk:

the other amazing thing about ambarchi is that whatever zone he's in is so freaking huge. i'm beginning to think he's actually a few dozen different people, all working in distinct styles but releasing everything under one name for tax reasons or something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Ah: the Warhol of Avant-Classical...just put yer name on it...has he even been seen in the same place as himself @ the same time - ??...That doesn't add up...

Ficus watkinsiana, commonly known as Strangler fig, Watkins' fig, Nipple fig or the Green-leaved Moreton Bay Fig is a hemiepiphytic fig that is endemic to Australia.

pretty stunning collection of new releases in this first set. gonna be an expensive year.

Greetings, bipeds.

apparently the fruit of the strangler fig causes otherwise sedate drone musicians to start making whale noises.

I'm doing absolutely nothing but listening to this first set + the sounds from the environment. sometimes I couldn't tell which one was from the radio. Now it's more obvious...

did anything sound like frog disco? :)

in 2D - on 3D - I meant to do that...
Avatar 10:13pm Mayuko:

G, Frog Disco should have music like this first set judging from the songs frogs sing. Radiator in my apartment make sound like that zeitkratzer track.

about biepes -- just a guess, but "BIEPS" is sometimes used as an acronym in Spanish for Bienestar Psicológico ("Mental Health")
