Geodesic



I have this desire to go make a geodesic dome and a labyrinth.....one day....oh one day it'll happen. I've given the city a phonecall to enquire about building a labyrinth and it looks like they may be designing one, but also they arn't for designing one where I was planning on putting it.

Oh well. I now need to start collecting metal for a dome.

Beatboxing and such.

So, what can I add to this blog today. I've been "working" to find work for the past little while. I haven't really been working all that hard, but I'm trying to find a comfortable place of work and creative output.

I found a few recording of the beatboxing championship I was witness to in London England. Feel free to check out the recordings here. They are pretty damned amazing and they go alittle beyond the traditional beatboxing you've known in the past. I really enjoyed the Desebel performance. He does some crazy trancy, housey beatboxing that was completetly awsome and new to me.

I had recently also been listening to the cbc and heard this interesting show that was talking about using satelitte footage to make music. Follow this link if you're curious :

Things to do

I have a plans to go to a few conferences this upcoming year. But, it's starting to look like they will all be on the same week. I really wanted to try to get Mutek 06, Subtle technologies 06, and NIME 06. They all sound interesting and I could have the chance to go to them all maybe. I'm not sure about mutek, but NIME starts June 4th...and Subtle ends the 4th. So, there is a little room to move from one to the other. Though....if I went to NIME it would be to present something and Subtle would be to just see what it's all about. Mutek would probably be the biggest for me, but that won't until maybe next year so it seems. And I guess it's about time that we all started thinking about going to burning man.

podcasts and such



So, I recently mentioned that I've found myself a little iPod for christmas. I've been getting all the cool podcast I could find off of the itunes site and putting them on my little machine. I've been picking up the Ricky Gervais show and it's absolutely great. Ricky Gervais is ofcourse one of the main instigators of the British tv show The Office. I think you should be able to listen to the show from his site or possiby by going into itunes and picking it up.

I've also been lovin' the photoshop tv podcast they have going. It's extremely helpful and I've learned so much more just be listening to those guys talking about it rather then reading up on those damned tutorials flooding the net.

please lead me to any other cool podcast when found. I'm looking into starting up my own, but I'm not sure if I really have the interest or time.....meh...I'll see what happens.
