A preliminary version of the Last.fm Explorer can be accessed at http://alex.turnlav.net/vis/final_process/
If you have never used it before, it will take a while to download your tags. The progress bar doesn't work, but it is actually downloading your tags.

Uh, not really sure what's up with the misaligned weeks up there. Remember when I said preliminary? The whole user comparison feature was new last Thursday...

From Ridge's roof. 20 second exposure. The weird curvy line in the sky on the left is a helicopter moving.

music for 18 musicians

Oct. 29th, 2008 | 09:20 pm
music: Zoetrope - Boards of Canada (In A Beautiful Place Out In The Country)

I should make a mix CD of all the tracks I've found that clearly (without saying so) are trying to be, or at least directly reference, Steve Reich's Music for 18 Musicians.

Off the top of my head (jumping through itunes):

  • Zoetrope - Boards of Canada
  • Out Of Egypt, Into The Great Laugh Of Mankind, And I Shake The Dirt From My Sandals As I Run - Sufjan Stevens
  • All My Friends - LCD Soundsystem
  • The Proxy - RJD2
  • Some Aphex Twin Track I Can't Find

I know there's more ... I should just keep track. Man all these electronic guys love Reich.

UPDATE 2/23/09: LULZ, The Proxy by RJD2 Samples Electric Counterpoint by Reich.

link toss

Oct. 28th, 2008 | 03:13 pm
music: Easy Eats or Dirty Doctor Galapagos - Man Man (Rabbit Habits)

I made this program last winter break called Link Toss. When you click on a link, it opens it in whatever browser you happen to have open. It's worked pretty solidly for me, but it had a few oddities that I never got around to working out, so I never tried to garner any attention or anything.

Now someone else has come up with the same idea! Choosy is a super pretty fancy looking program that essentially does the exact same thing. And while it's currently in beta, the dude who makes it plans to charge for it when it's ready. Whoa. And I was going to open source Link Toss when I thought it was solid...
