im reading a book of hot letters

it goes like this: kathy acker goes to australia for some university stuff

has a fling with a writer/prof

hot correspondence ensues (apparently)

kathy acker dies a year later

semiotext(e) publishes their correspondence 20 years later, MIT gets in on the distribution

i like kathy acker. the mysterious lover turned out to be a dude. i was hoping for a transgender person but no, it's a straight dude. apparently. we'll see.

i'll need to read more to find out.

and yeah, well, it goes like this: i found your music here on syg, and i think i bought some files long ago, and i liked them (we listen to a lot of ambient in this house)

but i hate to manage files, see? all my files are buried in some server that needs, ugh... lookin'. curatin'. sufferin'

i have to get up, start it, it's on a battery backup, the software is iffy, then you need to move the files from one device to another... who needs the headache? it's a job for an accountant or a librarian. i'm neither.

but spottifried makes it easy and headache free and i don't have to store, manage, label, or submit to itunes or whatever it's called these days. spotify is the library of babel or the book of sand as borges had it. except for stuff from labels like, what was it the one with joanna newsom and jim o'rourke etc. i space it out. anyway, that one. i don't want to manage files. i lose them in transit.

!@#$%! 02.22.2017 10:19 AM

the plot thickens! the guy is saying he's queer. kathy acker says she stopped sleeping with straigh men. so, hm, maybe something interesting will happen. so far just name dropping of friends and authors and the "discovery" of the simpsons in 199...5?

anyway man you should make music for games and films. seriously.

I just found out that Thurston Moore Group will play the same festival in summer that I will be playing.

https://www.pohodafestival.sk/en/new...on-moore-group

I'm kind of happy about this.

!@#$%! 02.22.2017 12:46 PM

why don't i like thurston anymore?

i don't know. it's not post-fiasco.

i was just never into his solo stuff-- the whole was always more than the parts

but hey, playing at a festival is great

have fun

Rob Instigator 02.22.2017 02:25 PM

!@#$%! 02.23.2017 11:57 AM

I don't know, man.

I've been stuck in a creative crisis or something, for quite a long time.

I mean, I've got like 5-6 solid ready tracks that I find really good, but always when I listen to them I feel like "OK, maybe the bass should be better, maybe this sound should not be there, maybe this is too much, maybe this sucks". Doubts, doubts, something like never occurred to me before.

I can send you a soundcloud link to some of them if you want to give it a listen.

!@#$%! 03.06.2017 12:33 PM

SO, slavo, i forgot to answer! soundcloud has always been a pain in the ass for me on i0S so i never use it. but yes please! i'll install it or get it to work somewhere somehow.

Rob Instigator 03.06.2017 12:37 PM

iOS. hahahhahahahahhahahahhahahaa

android is so much work man. i don't have time for it.

Rob Instigator 03.06.2017 12:51 PM

what work? I find it much more work to figure out what to tap/swipe/other stupid fucking method of interacting with a machine.

setting up android and getting it to talk to other devices is bothersome to me is what i mean

cuz that's the alternative to iOS

you're making some sort of luddite argument yes?

like "paper is better," and "no smartphones" etc?

i just wanna listen to slavo's music

which was digitally generated & recorded anyway. and when he releases the album i'll stream it.

no need for horse carts and clippers to carry his orchestra from overseas

Rob Instigator 03.06.2017 01:43 PM

luddites are stupid as fuck. they hate "new" technology" but use every bit of the "old" technology. fucking morons.

I just slam about 10 gigs of high bitrate MP3's into my droid and bluetooth the fuck out of my jams to the car stereo, or home player.

I feel apple products are primarily for people with no knowledge of computing or computer systems or the way computers actually function (my wife for example). I grew up learning BASIC in grammar school, buidling motherboards, frankensteining together powerful PC's and servers, etc. to me that stuff intuitive.

I do not find Apple products intuitive at all.

The iPad we have I use purely for streaming shows, or playing a few stupid games on it. I HATE browsing the web on it.

My wife's iphone is like trying to read a book in Portuguese when all you know is Spanish. everything takes me 4X as long to figure out.

Things I can do with my droid phone quick as fuck:
download torrents
convert files
edit PDF documents
install/remove programs
transfer or add more memory space
etc.

Rob Instigator 03.06.2017 01:43 PM

and Slavo's music rules.

oh good to know. i thought you were gonna tell me to write to my penpal slavo to mail me a roll of his music for my pianola lol

people who don't know about computers bla bla bla-- that's just trollin' man

i don't wanna get into that here but will gladly take it to the irrelevant thread if you wanna take it there.

i used to program in basic etc i used to build computers etc etc now i don't bother because i have other (better?) things to do and apple lets me do them.

but good to know you like your phone. and nice trollin'

my issue with the soundcloud app has more to do with the fact that it requires registration and shit like that to listen, last i recall. not with stability or anything not running here.

and... on to the irrelevant thread

Rob Instigator 03.06.2017 04:34 PM

you know what is irrelevant?

DEATH

not if you have dependents though

that's the tough part

Rob Instigator 03.06.2017 05:19 PM

you won't know the difference.

you either blink out of conscious existence and are not affected by their sadness over your death

OR

you are conscious after and can see and understand things your mortal self could not and therefore you will be privy to all the horrors your offspring unleash on the world and the people around them that they would never tell you about. This may seveerly reduce the enjoyment you would get from floating above and watching their lives develop. you'd see them smell their own farts, abuse their spouse, neglect their children, talk shit about you next to your dead body, etc.

rough!!!

!@#$%! 03.06.2017 08:29 PM

ha ha ha ha ha

A+

why can't i rep
